We may also use Your personal information for any other lawful purpose, including, without limitation, sharing Your personal information with third parties who may send You ads or marketing communications about their products and offers which may be of interest to You.
By submitting Your information to Us, You are authorizing these third parties to contact You through any lawful means, including, without limitation, email, telephone (even if Your telephone number is on the do not call list), text, or online ads, regarding their products and services. If You subsequently desire that these third parties no longer contact You, You will need to communicate Your request directly to them.
We may also share Your information with third-party contractors who provide services to Us so that We can provide You with the Site and its various services. These third-party contractors are prohibited from using the information We provide for purposes other than performing services for Us. We may transfer Your information to third parties that are involved in a corporate merger or acquisition with Us.
The non-personal data that the Site collects is generally used in the aggregate to analyze the ways in which the Site is used, and how We can improve the user experience, and may be shared with third parties such as advertisers, marketers, and other vendors who provide Us with services. We use information about You and Your activities on the Site for research and reporting purposes.
We may also disclose Your information to third parties when We reasonably believe We are obligated to do so by law.

Do Not Track
Most browsers have a “Do Not Track” functionality of Your web browser by visiting the Preferences or Settings page of Your web browser. Because there are currently no industry standards for Do Not Track signals and responses, the Site is not designed to respond to the “Do Not Track” setting of Your browser.
We and Our third-party partners may engage in marketing tactics, including what is known as “interest-based advertising”. As described above, We and Our partners may set a cookie on Your device and/or browser. Among other things, this technology allows Us and Our partners to provide You with interest-based or targeting advertising, that is, offers to products and services which will be of interest to You based on websites You’ve visited, Your visit to this Site, or other data or information which marketers may have about You. Such tactics may include tracking Your use of a web service over time and across different websites, in what is known as “retargeting”. Retargeting means that after visiting the Site or other websites, marketers may deliver ads to You on this or other websites. Marketers may track Your Internet usage across websites and combine data from other sources to personally identify You.
For more information about interest-based advertising, please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/
. To opt out of Your web browsing information being used in this manner, please visit http://optout.aboutads.info
. This opt-out process is managed and governed by industry self-regulatory bodies such as the Digital Advertising Alliance (http://digitaladvertisingalliance.org/
), not by Us. Note that in the opt-out process, You may opt-out of interest-based advertising on a company-by-company basis, or You may opt out of interest-based ads from all companies who have elected to participate in the program. We do not participate directly in the program, however, Our third-party partners who may be showing You ads through Our interest-based marketing efforts, such as Google, Inc., do participate. And, although some companies may provide their own, direct opt-out mechanism, this Site does not currently offer that option.
If You do elect to take advantage of this opt-out, please note that it remembers Your preference by setting a cookie on Your device or browser. Therefore, if You change computers or browsers, or delete cookies, You will have to opt-out again for each of the companies You previously opted out of. It is also important to note that opting-out of interest-based ads does not mean that You will no longer receive advertising, nor will it prevent the receipt of interest-based advertising from third parties that do not participate in these programs. It will, however, exclude You from interest-based advertising conducted through participating networks, as provided by their policies and choice mechanisms.
Revoking Your Consent
If, after submitting Your personal information to Us, You subsequently decide that You no longer want Us to retain and use Your personal information, please email Us at MyQualityInsured.com and We will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete Your personal information which is no longer needed for our legal compliance purposes (for example, some laws may require that we keep records of Our transactions regarding Your Personal Information), and we will cease sharing your Personal Information with third parties. However, please note that if We have shared Your personal information with any third parties, You will have to contact them directly with Your request to delete Your information.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
- Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.

. Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
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. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
Response Timing and Format
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to ninety (90) days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance, specifically by electronic mail communication.
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.

Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales. However, you may change your mind and opt back into personal information sales at any time by visiting our website and sending us a message. We will only use personal information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request.

Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
