Your Choices About Our Collection, Use, and Disclosure of Your Information
We strive to provide you with options regarding the personal information you provide to us. If you do not want us to collect your information, as described in this Notice, do not use the Site. This section describes mechanisms we provide for you to control certain uses and disclosures of your information.
No Collection of Information from Children
Our Site is not intended for children under 18 years of age. We do not solicit or knowingly collect any information from visitors under 13 years of age, and please do not use the Site if you are not yet 18. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us immediately through the Contact Information section below.
“Do Not Track” Signals
Residents of certain states, including California and Delaware, may be subject to particular statutes requiring disclosure of how the Site responds to web browser “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personal information about their online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services, such as California Bus. & Prof. Code § 22575 and 6 Del.C. § 1205C. Although it is not clear that the statute applies to our operation and your use of the Site, an example might be a browser option allowing you to ask websites not to track you across third-party websites so that they can serve targeted or behavioral advertising to you. You should not use the Site if you desire a “do not track” signal, because the Site may not honor it.
Additional Privacy Rights for California Residents
California residents may have additional rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), subject to certain limitations. The obligations and rights in this section do not apply to personal information we collect from or about job applicants, vendors, suppliers, independent contractors, current or former full-time, part-time, and temporary employees and staff, officers, directors, or owners of The Sanctuary or residents of any state other than California. No user of the Site will be discriminated against for exercising their rights under the CCPA.
As described in this Notice, we collect the following categories of personal information from users of the Site to provide our services and related support, analyze, personalize, and improve our services, engage in advertising, marketing and promotional activities, process sales, execute our internal operations, secure and protect our business, and comply with legal obligations:

In order for us to act on one of these requests, we must be able to verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you, and your request must:
We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request and will not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
If you are a California resident and would like to make any request as described herein, please contact us as provided in this Notice. We will respond to verifiable requests received from California residents as required by law.
