  1. WHAT INFORMATION DOES THIS PRIVACY POLICY COVER?

    This Privacy Policy applies to information collected through our websites, mobile applications, the services that we offer you when you subscribe to a print, digital, electronic, or online subscription to any of our newspaper publications, the services that we offer you when you subscribe to receive any of our newsletters, SMS and text alerts, other online services, including advertising services, and through offline channels including but not limited to when you visit one of our locations, through phone and email conversations, while attending our events (collectively Newsday's "services"), through social media interactions or through our authorized services providers that link or otherwise refer to this Privacy Policy. If we combine this information with information from other sources, we will treat the combined information as being governed by this Privacy Policy.

  2. SOURCES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
    • Directly from you. For example, during account registration from forms you complete, subscriptions you purchase or comments you provide on our services.
    • Indirectly from you. For example, from observing your actions on our services including as you navigate through and interact with our websites and services. We may compile statistical information concerning your usage of the websites through analytics services, such as those provided by Google Analytics, Adobe Analytics, and similar providers. To do so, we may collect certain information about your equipment and browsing actions and patterns. You can find out how Google Analytics uses data and how to opt out of Google Analytics.
    • From third parties. For example, third party social networking providers and advertising companies, our affiliates and service providers who provide services or information to us or other third party sources that are lawfully entitled to share your data with us. If you do not want us to collect information from social networks, you should review and adjust your privacy settings on those networks as desired before linking or connecting them to our services.
    • From your workplace or school. If your employer or school purchases an organization-wide subscription to Newsday.com, they may provide us with your name, email address and other information to grant you access to the subscription as a user.

    • Email address
    • Date of birth
    • Telephone number
    • Username
    • Password
    • Payment information, including account or card number

    When you use social media platforms, applications or tools that enable features like audio or video content (sometimes known as "plugins"), or other features that are operated or offered by other companies (sometimes known as "third parties") and are integrated into our services or allow you to connect to our services, may collect information from you, and we may collect information from those third parties. This may include payment services, login services or review platforms. When you connect your Newsday account with your social media account, you will share information with your friends associated with your social media account, with other users, and with your social media account provider. By doing so, you authorize us to facilitate this sharing of information, and you understand that the use of shared information will be governed by the social media provider's privacy policy. Please refer to the privacy settings of the social media platforms or third party features you use to manage how information is shared. You can disconnect your social media account or other third parties account from the services at any time.

    If you disclose any personal information relating to other people to us or to our service providers in connection with Newsday's services, you represent that you have the authority to do so and to permit us to use the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

    Passive data collection: Like most companies that offer services online, we and our service providers may automatically collect certain technical information from your computer, tablet or mobile device when you use our services or interact with us. The information we may collect includes but is not limited to:

    • IP address

    • Device type
    • Device manufacturer
    • Device identifier
    • Browser type
    • Content viewed on our services
    • Pages viewed immediately before and after you access our websites
    • Which ads or content from us or our affiliated companies you view, access, or click on
    • Your activities over time and across websites and apps within the Newsday network and within the network of websites and apps serviced by the ad networks, advertisers, service providers, and other companies with which we do business, following your use of one of our websites or apps
    • Whether you open our electronic communications and where you click within them
    • Features of our services that you use
    • Name and location of your Internet Service Provider
    • Amount of time spent on our pages and how many pages you viewed during your visit

    For more information about how we collect this information, see the Use of Web Beacons, Cookies and Other Technologies section of this Privacy Policy.

    We, our service providers, and other third parties with whom we do business may collect information about you from publicly available sources (e.g., social media platforms) and commercially available resources. We may combine that information with the information described above and will handle the combined information as described in this Privacy Policy.

    Information we collect across devices and applications. In order to improve the personalization of the content, features, and advertising, and provide you with a seamless experience across the devices you use to access the services, we or our service providers may use your personal information (e.g., log-in credentials, IP addresses, hashed email addresses, and unique mobile device identifiers) to locate or attempt to locate unique users across different browsers or devices.

    Location Information - Our mobile applications may collect precise information about the location of your mobile device via your device's GPS or cellular connectivity, but only with your express consent. Once you have consented to the collection of such precise location information via your mobile device, you may adjust this consent by managing your Location Services preferences through the settings of your mobile device and disable the collection of such a data. Precise geolocation is considered a type of sensitive personal information. We may also be able to infer your location from other information that you provide or information that we collect passively, such as the known locations of nearby Wi-Fi networks. Ads on our websites and apps may be targeted based on the approximate location and are never targeted based on your precise geolocation. For example, your IP address indicates that you are from a certain US State and that you live in a certain city or region. As a result, our services may be personalized with information and advertisements related to that particular US State, city or region.

  4. HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

    We collect and use your personal information for a number of purposes, including, but not limited to the following business or commercial purposes.

    In addition, to provide advertisements and content that are more relevant to you, we and our advertising and content providers may collect personal information when you use our services (such as the IP address of your device, the identifier on your mobile device, or cookies stored on your device), and may share the information we collect with third parties (see the Use of Cookies, Web Beacons and Other Technologies section of this Privacy Policy for more information).

    We may combine or aggregate any of the information we collect from our services and elsewhere for any of these purposes.

    A few of our vendors use pseudonymized information, including a hashed version of personal information (such as email or phone number), that they receive from us to provide products and services to us and their other customers. "Pseudonymize" means the processing of personal information in a manner that renders the personal information no longer attributable to a specific consumer without the use of additional information. Therefore, it is possible that your personal information is being used in pseudonymized form by these vendors, who have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that your personal information is not attributed back to you. For example, when you use our websites and enter your email address on our websites (either to log in, or to sign up for a newsletter, or similar), we may share with LiveRamp and its group companies information that we collect from you, such as your email (in hashed, pseudonymous form), IP address, or information about your browser or operating system, with any of the following, acting as service provider (as applicable and defined in the CCPA) and/or "joint controllers" (as applicable and defined in the GDPR).

    LiveRamp uses this information to create an online identification code that we may store in our first-party cookie advertising for our use in online, in-app, and cross-channel. This may be shared with advertising companies to enable interest-based and targeted advertising. LiveRamp uses this information to create an online identification code for the purpose of recognizing you on your devices. This code does not contain any of your directly identifiable personal information and will not be used by LiveRamp to re-identify you.

    Detailed information on LiveRamp's data processing activities is available in LiveRamp's privacy policy. You have the right to withdraw your consent or opt-out to the processing of your personal information at any time https://liveramp.com/opt_out/.

  5. HOW WE DISCLOSE AND SHARE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

    We may disclose information about you:

    • to service providers that process payments, handle marketing communications, provide technical support, conduct surveys, or perform other services for us;
    • to business partners when you have elected to receive communications from them;
    • to business partners that engage in interest-based advertising;
    • as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or other legal process;
    • as necessary to process transactions and provide you with the services, products, or information you request or purchase;
    • when we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to protect the rights or property of our affiliates or us, or to protect the safety of you or others;
    • to detect, prevent, or respond to potential fraud, intellectual property infringement, violations of our Terms of Service, this Privacy Policy, our Cookie Policy, our Subscriber Terms & Conditions, violations of law, or other misuse of our services;
    • to proceed with the negotiation or completion of a merger, acquisition, sale, or other transfer of all or part of our assets; or
    • subject to your consent.

    We do not share your credit card information or other financial information with third parties for their marketing purposes or other independent use. When we share information with third parties for processing credit card or other payments, we require those third parties to comply with applicable Payment Card Industry standards.

    We may share Aggregated Information with third parties that provide content and services for us. We may also share Aggregated Information with advertisers and others so that they can better understand our audience. For example, we might disclose the gender, age, or geographical breakdown of our user base.

    You should know that when you voluntarily disclose personal information publicly on our services, that information may be collected and used by others and you may receive unsolicited communications from other people. Public activities may be included in our RSS feeds, APIs, and other distribution formats. As a result, your public activities may appear on other websites, blogs, or feeds. When you share information via features offered on our services by other companies (sometimes known as "third party plugins"), the privacy settings of the other companies for those features govern how the information will be shared. When you are logged into our services, depending on the service you are logged into, your name may be displayed, and your email address and contact information may be viewed. Be sure to log out of your account and take other steps to ensure that others cannot view that information without your knowledge.

  6. THIRD PARTY LINKS AND CONTENT

    Our services and communications may contain links to or content from websites or other online services provided by third parties. We expect our partners and third party providers to respect your privacy, but you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for the collection and use of your information by websites and other services that are not under our control. Any personal information you provide to them is not covered by this Privacy Policy. The privacy practices of third parties are governed by their privacy policies, and we encourage you to review the privacy policies and terms of use of all websites and online services that you use, view, or visit.

  7. USE OF COOKIES, WEB BEACONS AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES

    Like most major websites, we may use cookies, web beacons (also known as pixels), and other technologies to collect information when you use our services. These technologies help us remember you when you visit our services, personalize your experience on the services, learn about how you and others use the services, learn about the devices you use to access the services, and remember your preferences.

    A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website stores on your computer hard drive, tablet, mobile device, or other device in the cookie file associated with the browser that you use to access the website. Cookies alone generally cannot be used to identify you, but a login cookie will store information that helps remember you, such as your username. Cookies help us recognize you when you return to our websites and hold information from one visit to the next for your ease of use. Cookies also help us better understand how people use our services through click-stream analysis, which allows us to design a better user experience. We may also share information that we collect with third parties, such as service providers, advertisers, and advertising companies as described in this Privacy Policy.

    Certain third party content providers, advertisers, and advertising companies may also place cookies on your computer or mobile device. We do not have access to, nor control over, these third parties' use of cookies or other tracking technologies or how they may be used. For example, we use Google to serve advertisements on Newsday's services, which uses the Google DoubleClick cookie, and in some cases, a unique device identifier, to show you ads based on your visit to Newsday.com and other sites on the Internet. You may opt out of the use of the Google DoubleClick cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy. To learn more, visit the Interest-Based Advertising section of this Privacy Policy.

    Some of our services and communications may contain tiny electronic images known as web beacons. We use web beacons to assist us in delivering cookies on our services and to allow us to count users who have visited those pages. We also include web beacons in promotional email messages in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.

    To learn about our use and our third party service providers' use of cookies and similar technologies on our services, please review our Cookie Policy.

  8. INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING

    To help ensure that you receive ads that are relevant to your interests on our services, our advertisers' services, and elsewhere on the Internet, we and third parties (including service providers, advertisers, and advertising companies) may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites, apps, and devices. We and third parties may use that information to help understand audience segments. Advertisers may use the segments to determine the audience groups to which they wish to deliver particular ads. Through this process, we do not use information that directly identifies you, such as name or e-mail address. In addition, when you login to your account on newsday.com, a unique identifier is generated and used in connection with your account, so that your personal information is not disclosed.

    Opting out does not mean you will no longer receive advertising (including ads provided by Newsday). It means that the company or companies from which you opted out will no longer deliver ads tailored to your web preferences and usage patterns, and you may still see product recommendations and other similar features on Newsday.com and its affiliated sites.

    Except as otherwise disclosed in this Privacy Policy, we do not respond to browser "Do Not Track" signals or other mechanisms that provide a method to opt out of the collection of information across the networks of websites and online services in which we participate; if we do so in the future, we will describe how we do so here. For more information on "Do Not Track,"" please visit http://allaboutdnt.com

    For further information on tracking technologies and your rights and choices regarding them, see the applicable Use of Web Beacons, Cookies and Other Technologies section of this Privacy Policy and our Cookie Policy.

    As described in more detail below, California residents have the right to instruct us not to "sell" or "share" their personal information. For more information, please see the "NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS - YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS" section below.

    Residents of Nevada, Colorado, Connecticut and Virginia have the right to opt out of "targeted advertising" and "sales" (as defined under applicable law). To exercise your right to opt out of "targeted advertising" or "sales" of your personal information, please click here or the "Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information" link on the bottom of the webpage where your personal information is being collected. You may also submit a request by sending us an email to privacy@newsday.com

  9. CHILDREN'S PRIVACY

    Newsday's services are not intended for use by children under the age of 13. In addition, we do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13, although certain third party sites that we link to may do so. These third party sites have their own terms of use and privacy policies and we encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children's Internet usage and to help enforce our Privacy Policy by instructing their children to never provide information on our websites without their permission.

    Involvement of parents. In accordance with the provisions of the Children's Online Privacy Act, if we do begin collecting any personal information or data from children under the age of 13, we will notify parents first, and will seek parental or guardian consent to collect, use and/or disclose certain personal information from children under the age of 13. A parent may review and have deleted their child's personal information and may refuse to permit further collection or use of their child's information by contacting us as noted at the end of this Privacy Policy. Parents may consent to our collection and use of their child's personal information without consenting to the disclosure of that information to others.

    If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided personal information, please contact us as provided in the Contact Information section below, and provide sufficient detail to enable us to delete that information from our databases.

  10. YOUR CHOICES

    In general, if you register to use any of our services, you may update the information you have provided to us for any of our services by visiting the account information page of that service.

    • Email:

      When you register for our services, you may be able to indicate your preferences regarding marketing communications. On our Newsletters and Email Management page, you may be able to change those preferences and select the categories of communications that interest you. When we or our affiliates send you emails containing offers that may be of interest of you, those emails may contain links via which you may opt out of receiving those communications. If you experience difficulty with the "unsubscribe" process, please contact us at privacy@newsday.com and provide your email address along with the name of the product or newsletter from which you would like to unsubscribe. If you have subscribed to multiple products and newsletters, you will need to specifically request to unsubscribe to each newsletter.

      You will not be able to opt out of receiving certain service-related or transactional communications relating to our services unless you cancel your registration or subscription.

    • Telephone Promotions:

      You can ask to unsubscribe from our telephone solicitations by calling our toll-free number 1-800-NEWSDAY (1-800-639-7329). You may also email us at privacy@newsday.com with "Opt Out" in the subject line and your account number and phone number in the body of the email and requesting to be removed from our telephone promotions.

    • Text Messages:

      If you have elected to receive text messages, you can opt out of text alerts any time by replying "STOP" or any alternative keyword. We complete any opt out request as fast as we can. If you opt out from one of our text message programs, you may continue to receive text messages from Newsday through any other programs you have joined (e.g., editorial text alerts, sweepstakes, etc.) until you separately unsubscribe from those programs. THE OPT OUT REQUESTS WON'T PROHIBIT US FROM SENDING YOU IMPORTANT NONMARKETING COMMUNICATIONS. Text messaging originator opt in data is shared only with our service providers. For additional information, please refer to our Messaging Service Terms.

    • Push Notification:

      You can disable push notifications any time by adjusting your device settings accordingly, or uninstalling the Newsday app. Even after your account is cancelled, we may retain your information for the purposes set forth in this Privacy Policy.

    • Platform & Web Browser Controls:
      • Cookie Controls & Settings

        When you first come to our website, you may receive a notification that cookies are present. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. You may control cookies, including preventing or stopping the installation and storage of cookies, through your browser settings and other tools. Most browsers will allow you to block or refuse cookies. However, you may need to manually adjust your preferences each time you visit a site. For more information, see the "Help" section of your browser. Please note that if you block/reject certain cookies, including "Strictly Necessary Cookies" cookies, some of the services and functionalities of our website may not work. For more information, please refer to our Cookie Policy.

      • Global Privacy Control (GCP)

        Some browsers and browser extensions support the Global Privacy Control ("GCP"), which can send a signal to the websites you visit and allow you to opt out of certain types of use and disclosure of your personal information. Depending on your jurisdiction and if your browser supports it, our websites recognize and process the Global Privacy Control opt out preference signals. For more information on how you can turn on the Global Privacy Control to opt out of the "sale" or "sharing" of your personal information, visit https://globalprivacycontrol.org.

      • Do Not Track (DNT)

        Some browsers allow you to send a "Do Not Track" ("DNT") signal to the sites you visit. This signal tells the websites you visit that you don't want them to track you. However, unlike GCP signals mentioned above, there is no clear understanding on how to interpret these DNT signals and consequent implementation. As such, we do not respond to browser Do Not Track signals. If we decide to implement the DNT in the future, we will describe how we do so here. For more information on DNT, please visit http://allaboutdnt.com.

      • Mobile Advertising ID Controls for iOS and Android Users

        iOS or Android mobile device provide options about how to limit tracking and/or reset advertising IDs. For information on how to implement advertising ID controls and choices on your iOS or Android mobile device visit https://thenai.org/opt-out/mobile-opt-out/. As each mobile platform controls these instructions, and not us, we cannot guarantee that these guidelines will remain the same or that they'll always be available.

    • Access, Correct, Change/Update, Delete or Restrict Processing of Your Personal Information:

      In some jurisdictions, and subject to limitations pursuant to applicable law(s), you have the right to access, correct, change, update, delete or restrict processing your personal information. To exercise these rights as better described in this Privacy Policy, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us through this web form or via email to privacy@newsday.com. We reserve the right to only respond to verifiable consumer requests made by any individual who is:

      • the consumer who is the subject of the request,
      • a consumer on behalf of the consumer's minor child, or
      • the authorized agent of the consumer.

      The verifiable consumer request must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify whether you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative, which may include: providing your email and phone verification, known customer information, and/or account sign-up authentication or other information needed to verify your identity depending on the sensitivity of the personal information in question.

      We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request, and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request. Additionally, you will need to describe your request with sufficient detail to allow us to review, understand, assess, and respond. We will not use the personal information we collect from an individual to determine a verifiable request for any other purpose, except as required or permitted by law. We will answer your request in accordance with state law, including exceptions that may cause a request to be denied in its entirety or in part. We'll respond to your request in accordance with applicable law.

      Authorized Agent. In some jurisdictions, you may authorize a natural person or a business (the "Agent") to act on your behalf with respect to the rights under this Section 10. When you submit a verifiable consumer request, the Agent must provide proof that you gave the Agent signed permission to submit the request. Before sending a response to your request, we'll contact you to confirm who you are and who the authorized Agent is.

  11. SECURITY

    While we strive to maintain reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect your information, no information system can be 100% secure. We cannot guarantee the absolute security of your information. Moreover, we cannot be responsible for information that you transmit over networks that we do not control or information that you choose to publicly disclose. You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords or other account information.

    We make reasonable efforts to secure the account information pages and other registration locations for our services, such that they can be accessed only by our authorized personnel or by logging in with your username and password.

    We endeavor to protect the security of your payment information during transmission by using technology that encrypts information you submit.

  12. HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR INFORMATION

    We retain your personal information for as long as necessary, including to provide you the services and while you have an open account with us. We may retain your personal information for longer if it is necessary to comply with our legal or reporting obligations, resolve disputes, collect fees, etc. or as permitted or required by applicable law.

    We may also retain your personal information in a deidentified or aggregated form so that it can no longer be associated with you. To determine the appropriate retention period for your personal information, we consider various factors such as the amount, nature, and sensitivity of your information; the potential risk of unauthorized access, use or disclosure; the purposes for which we process your personal information; applicable legal requirements.

  13. NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS - YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS:
    1. California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the "Shine The Light" law, permits consumers who are California residents, to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, information about the categories of personal information (as defined in the Shine the Light law), if any, that we disclosed in the preceding calendar year to third parties for those third parties' direct marketing purposes. Our disclosure requirements apply only if we share our consumers' personal information with third parties for them to directly market their own products to those consumers, instead of assisting us with our own business. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please contact us as provided in the Contact Information section below.
    2. Eraser Law. If you are a California resident under the age of 18, and a registered user of any website where this Privacy Policy is posted, California law permits you to request and obtain removal of content or information you have publicly posted. You may submit your request using the Contact Information in this Privacy Policy. Please be aware that such a request does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information you have posted and that there may be circumstances in which the law does not require or allow removal even if requested.
    3. California Civil Code Section 1798.100 et seq., the California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA"). This CCPA section applies solely to residents of California ("consumers" or "you") and describes our policies and practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information we collect about you including information we obtain through our services. It also applies to personal information we collect about you through offline channels including but not limited to when you visit one of our locations, through phone and email conversations, while attending our events, through social media interactions or through our authorized services providers.

      This CCPA section supplements and amends the information contained in the Privacy Policy with respect to California residents, Newsday's employees or independent contractors (collectively "California residents"). Any terms defined within the CCPA have the same meaning when utilized within this CCPA section. All other terms shall have the meaning set forth in the Privacy Policy or Terms of Service as applicable. The other provisions of the Privacy Policy continue to apply except as modified in this CCPA section.

      Please read this CCPA section carefully before using our services or otherwise submitting information to us. By accessing or using our services or otherwise submitting information, you indicate your understanding that the collection, use, and disclosure of your information is subject to the terms of this CCPA section.

      IF YOU DO NOT CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION, USE, AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AS DESCRIBED IN THIS CCPA SECTION, PLEASE DO NOT PROVIDE US WITH SUCH INFORMATION AND DO NOT USE OUR SERVICES.

    2. Your CCPA Privacy Rights and Choices

      The CCPA provides California residents with specific rights regarding their personal information as described below subject to certain limitations.

      1. Right to Know about Personal Information Collected

        In addition to what is described above, as a California resident, you also have the right to request that we disclose additional information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months, to the extent applicable. Upon receipt of a verifiable consumer request, and as required by the CCPA, we will provide a response to such requests. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the receipt of your verifiable consumer request. With respect to personal information collected on and after January 1, 2022, and to the extent expressly required by applicable regulation, you may request that such disclosures cover a period beyond the 12 months referenced above, provided doing so would not require a disproportionate effort by us.

        You may request the following information:

        • The categories of personal information we collected about you.
        • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
        • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting, selling, or sharing that personal information.
        • The categories of third parties with whom we disclose that personal information.
        • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
      2. Right to Request Correction. You have the right to request that Newsday correct any inaccurate personal information we maintain about you, taking into account the nature of that information and purpose for processing it. Upon receipt of a verifiable consumer request (see below), and as required by the CCPA, we will provide a response to such requests.
      3. Right to Request Deletion of Personal Information

        You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions, including if we need the personal information for a reason related to our business. Some exceptions include, but are not limited to, if we need to:

        • Complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected, provide a good or service requested by you, or reasonably anticipated by you within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform a contract between Newsday and you.
        • Help to ensure security and integrity to the extent the use of the consumer's personal information is reasonably necessary and proportionate for those purposes.
        • Debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
        • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise his or her right of free speech, or exercise another right provided for by law.
        • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act pursuant to Chapter 3.6 (commencing with Section 1546) of Title 12 of Part 2 of the Penal Code.
        • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research that confirms or adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when Newsday's deletion of the information is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the ability to complete such research, if you have provided informed consent.
        • To enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with Newsday and compatible with the context in which the consumer provided the information.
        • Comply with a legal obligation.

        After we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete your personal information from our records within the time period required by the CCPA, unless an exception applies.

      4. Right to Opt Out of Having Your Information Sold or Shared. You have the right, subject to certain limitations, to opt out of having your personal information sold or shared. Under the CCPA, a "sale" is the disclosure of your personal information for monetary or other valuable consideration. "Sharing" means disclosing your personal information to a third party for cross-context behavioral advertising, whether or not for monetary or other valuable consideration. You may exercise this right by clicking the link Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information located at the bottom of the webpage where your personal information is being collected. You can also submit a request to opt out by emailing privacy@newsday.com with the subject line "California Resident - Do Not Sell or Share my PI."

        In addition, and if your browser supports it, this website recognizes and processes the Global Privacy Control ("GPC") opt out preference signals. For more information on how you can turn on the Global Privacy Control to opt out of the "sale" or "sharing" of your personal information, visit https://globalprivacycontrol.org.

      5. Right to Limit the Use of Sensitive Personal Information. In certain circumstances, you have the right to limit our use of the sensitive personal information we collect about you for any purposes other than to provide the services or goods you request or as otherwise permitted by law. You may exercise this right by clicking the link Limit the Use of My Sensitive Personal Information located at the bottom of the webpage where your sensitive personal information is being collected or by clicking here. You can also submit a request to opt out by emailing privacy@newsday.com with the subject line "California Resident – Limit the Use of my SP."
      6. Right to Non-Discrimination for the Exercise of Your Privacy Rights. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA, as described above. This includes but is not limited to: (i) denying good or services to you; (ii) charging you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties; (iii) providing a different level or quality of goods or services; or (iv) suggesting that you will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services. It also includes an employee's, applicant's, or independent contractor's right not to be retaliated against for the exercise of their CCPA rights.

        However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information's value and contain written terms that describe the program's material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.

        We currently do not offer any financial incentive, benefit, or price differences in return for the disclosure, deletion, sale or sharing of personal information. However, in general, our business model is based on providing a certain amount of free content to readers, after which we may require that additional content access must be paid for.

    3. Exercising Your Rights

      To exercise the right to know, correct, or delete, as described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request through this web form or by emailing privacy@newsday.com. You may make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability only twice within a 12-month period.

      We reserve the right to only respond to verifiable consumer requests to know, delete, or correct. A verifiable consumer request is one made by any individual who is:

      • the consumer who is the subject of the request,
      • a consumer on behalf of the consumer’s minor child, or
      • the authorized agent of the consumer.

      The verifiable consumer request must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative, which may include: providing your email and phone verification, known customer information, and/or account sign-up authentication or other information needed to verify your identity depending on the sensitivity of the personal information in question.

      We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

      Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request. Additionally, you will need to describe your request with sufficient detail to allow us to review, understand, assess, and respond. We will not use the personal information we collect from an individual to determine a verifiable request for any other purpose, except as required or permitted by law.

    4. Response Timing and Format

      We use good faith efforts to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days after its receipt. If we need more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and the needed extension period in writing.

      Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt. If we cannot comply with any portion of a request, the response we provide will also explain why, if applicable.

      We do 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.

      Authorized Agent. You may authorize a natural person or a business (the "Agent") to act on your behalf with respect to the rights under the California privacy law. When you submit a request to know, correct, or delete, the Agent must provide proof that you gave the Agent signed permission to submit the request, and you either must (i) verify you own identity with the business or (ii) directly confirm with us that you provide permission to the Agent. However, these steps are not required when you have provided the authorized agent with power of attorney pursuant to Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465. We reserve the right to deny requests from persons or businesses claiming to be authorized agents that do not submit sufficient proof of their authorization.
