California Privacy Rights
- Shine the Light
California’s “Shine The Light” law, permits California residents to ask for and receive from us once a calendar year, without charge, information about their personal information, if any, that we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year, if at all. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of personal information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared such information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and want to make such a request, please submit your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that not all information sharing is covered by the “Shine the Light” requirements and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response. Please be informed that we are only required to respond to one consumer request in each calendar year.
GIHS does not sell any of your personal information to third parties for their use in direct marketing, advertising, or promotion of their products or services.
- “Do Not Track”
Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference that users can set if they do not want web services to collect information about their online activity. However, there is currently no universal standard for sending and receiving DNT signals. Due to this lack of universal standard, it would be impossible for us to promise that we comply with all known and unknown DNT standards. As such, presently, we do not respond to DNT signals or browser settings.
- California Consumer Privacy Act
Under the California Consumer Privacy Act, as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act (“CCPA”), as a California resident, you have the following rights:

How do we process your CCPA request?
Once we receive your request, we will need to verify your identity before we can process your request. This information needed for verification may include your name, contact information, and information related to your relationship with GIHS. Please note that the specific information requested may differ depending on the nature of your request, in order to protect your privacy and for your security.
If you use an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf, we may require the authorized agent to provide written proof that you gave the agent signed permission to submit the request. We may also require you to either (1) verify your own identity directly with us or (2) directly confirm with us that you provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 45 days or 90 days total from the date we receive your request), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our response to you in writing. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request
Under California law, we are only required to respond to such request from the same individual no more than twice in a 12-month period.
