10. THE CALIFORNIA CONSUMER PRIVACY ACT
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides California residents with specific rights regarding their Personal Information, including the right to request certain information from businesses subject to the CCPA that collect Personal Information from you, the right to ask such businesses to delete Personal Information collected from you (subject to exceptions), the right to opt-out if a business sells your Personal Information, and the right of non-discrimination if you exercise any of these privacy rights.
Guestie acts as a “service provider” under the CCPA when offering the Services to its customers and our receipt and collection of any Personal Information is completed on behalf of our customers in order for us to provide the Services. If you are a user of one of our customers, please contact the customer directly with your request for access or deletion under the CCPA. If you contact us, we will refer you to that customer and support them in responding to your access or deletion request if necessary.
If you exercise your rights under the CCPA, Guestie will not discriminate against you, deny, charge different prices for, or provide a different quality of the Services. If Guestie ever offers a financial incentive or product enhancement that is contingent upon you providing your Personal Information, we will not do so unless the benefits to you are reasonably related to the value of the Personal Information you provide to us. Guestie does not sell your Personal Information.

Currently, there is no industry standard for recognizing Do Not Track browser signals, so we do not respond to them.
