How and With Whom We Disclose Your Information
- With our suppliers: We share your information with suppliers that provide services on our behalf, such as marketing and survey services, payment processors, website and customer experience hosting, data analysis, data storage, customer service, auditing and accounting firms and security suppliers. We contract with suppliers to use or disclose information to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements. We require our suppliers to contractually commit to protect the security and confidentiality of data they process on our behalf.

- With our advertising partners: We share your information with our advertising partners.
- With social media platforms: Where you choose to interact with us through social media, your interaction with these programs typically allows the social media company to collect some information about you through cookies they place on your device and other tracking mechanisms. In some cases, the social media company may recognize you through its digital cookies even when you do not interact with their application. Please visit the social media companies’ respective privacy policies to better understand their data collection practices and controls they make available to you.
- Where required or permitted by law or in the context of an audit or other review: We share information with law enforcement agencies, courts, or other government authorities where we believe it is necessary to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation; to protect the rights, safety, and property of CSD, you or others; or to respond to requests from courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies and other public and government authorities.
- In the context of a change of ownership or corporate organization: We may transfer to another entity or its affiliates or service providers some or all information about you in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, acquisition, sale of assets or any line of business, change in ownership control, or financing transaction. We cannot promise that an acquiring party or the merged entity will have the same privacy practices or treat your information the same as described in this Policy.
Your Choices about Receiving Email
CSD may send you email about your orders or your account and in response to your questions. CSD and its affiliates may also send you email with information and/or special offers about products and services that may be of interest to you.
Under most circumstances, we will give you an opportunity to let us know your preference regarding the receiving of promotional emails. This option applies to promotional emails only, as we may find it necessary to send you emails relating to your account, order, product, or pricing changes.
We provide you with the opportunity to update or delete certain Personal Information and to opt-out of having your Personal Information used or disclosed for certain purposes. For example, you may
- correct or update your Personal Information;
- change your preferences for certain communications;
- request that we do not share your Personal Information with third parties for their marketing purposes; or
- request access to your Personal Information.
Because we plan our communications in advance, it may take up to several weeks for your request to become effective. If you continue to receive our communications after expressing an opt-out preference, please let us know so that we can investigate the situation. We will, however, continue to send transaction-based communications if you place an order, request a sample, request customer support, register a product, or make similar requests.
Please be aware that if you do not allow us to collect and use your Personal Information, we may not be able to deliver certain products, promotions, and offerings to you.
CSD automatically receives and records data on our servers from visitor browsers including computer IP (Internet Protocol) addresses and other information using cookies.

We may also collect and record information about what you viewed on our website. We may use this type of information and combine it with your personal information to help customize our future interactions with you. In doing so, we hope to provide better service to you by tailoring our communications to match your interests—to give you more of what you want and less of what you don't want.
Protecting Your Information
However, while we strive to protect your personal information, you must also take steps to protect your information. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal information while you are on the Internet.

Be aware that when you disclose personal information at these sites, such as your name, member name, email address, etc., the information may be collected and used by others to send unsolicited emails. The services are open to the public, and what you post there can be seen by anyone and is not protected. CSD cannot control the comments that you may receive while you participate in these services.

The California Consumer Privacy Act provides California residents with rights to receive certain disclosures regarding the collection, use, and sharing of “Personal Information,” as well as rights to know/access, delete, and limit sharing of Personal Information. The CCPA defines “Personal Information” to mean “information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.” Certain information we collect may be exempt from the CCPA because it is considered public information (i.e., it is made available by a government entity) or covered by a specific federal privacy law, such as the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), or the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
To the extent that we collect Personal Information that is subject to the CCPA, that information, our practices, and your rights are described below.
Right to Information Regarding the Categories of Personal Information Collected, Sold, and Disclosed.

- We collect your name, phone number, email address, mailing address, and contact address when you create an account or contact us via the site.

We use this information to provide our services, respond to your requests, and send information and advertisements to you

- Verify identity of the requestor: Data Subject Access Requests (DSAR) are passed to the Compliance Officer as soon as received and a record of the request is noted. The person in charge will use all reasonable measures to verify the identity of the individual making the access request, especially where the request is made using online services. We will utilize the request information to ensure that we can verify your identity and where we are unable to do so, we may contact you for further information, or ask you to provide evidence of your identity prior to actioning any request. This is to protect your information and rights.
- Information Gathering: If you have provided enough information in your DSAR to collate the personal information held about you, we will gather all forms (hard-copy, electronic, etc.) and ensure that the information required is provided in an acceptable format. If we do not have enough information to locate your records, we may contact you for further details. This will be done as soon as possible and within the timeframes set out below.

DSARs are usually completed within thirty (30) days and are provided free of charge. We will provide the information in a commonly used electronic format, unless an alternative format is requested.
Whilst we provide the information requested without a fee, further copies requested by the individual may incur a charge to cover our administrative costs.
