Analytics Opt-Out

Privacy Sales Opt-Out

We are required by the California Consumer Privacy Act to provide California consumers the option to opt out of any current or future sales of personal information. The definition of sales is broad and includes joining a team account since that team account gains access to your e-mail address. Opting out of personal information sales therefore makes it impossible for us to allow you to join an account without reversing this opt-out.
