Under the CCPA, a “sale” is defined very broadly and includes a wide array of data sharing.

We “sold” such information to advertising networks and data analytics providers. The business purposes of “selling” personal information is for third-party companies to perform services on our behalf, such as marketing, advertising, and audience measurement. We do not have any actual knowledge that we “sell” personal information of consumers under 16 years of age.
Most modern web browsers give you the option to send a Do Not Track signal to the sites you visit, indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. However, there is no accepted standard for how a site should respond to this signal, and we do not take any action in response to this signal.
If you are a California resident our default cookie settings may constitute a sale of personal information. You can change your cookie settings using our cookie consent management tool here .
