California Privacy Rights

To make such a request, please contact us using the methods described in the “Contact Us” section.
California law requires that we disclose how Pride responds to web browser “Do Not Track” signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information (as that term is defined in California law) about a consumer’s online activities. Pride’s websites do not currently support “Do Not Track” codes nor do we currently respond to or take any action regarding “Do Not Track” requests.
