In the case of third party features such as advertising or links to other websites, such third parties may also collect information. You should review the applicable privacy policies of these third parties before providing personal information. Master Electronics is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.
Master Electronics and third parties may use a variety of technologies on Master Websites that collect information automatically, including cookies, pixels, web beacons, and logging. Master Electronics also places cookies on third party websites to collect information about you so that Master Electronics can serve personalized ads to you with products that may be of interest to you.
Like most websites, our website uses small data files stored on your computer or mobile device called cookies. Cookies consist of two different types; session and persistent. Session cookies enable us to recognize your actions during the browsing session, are temporary and expire when you close your browser and are not stored beyond this. Persistent cookies remain stored on your device after you close your browser until they expire or when you delete them.

- identifying the pages you click on during your visit to a Master Website;
- the name of the website you visited immediately before traveling to a Master Website; and
- helping track whether our communications are reaching you, measuring their effectiveness and allowing us to better design future communications.
We use this information to improve our website design, product selection, customer service, and promotions.

CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS APPENDIX
This Appendix applies solely to individuals who reside in the State of California (“consumers” or “you”). This Appendix complies with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) and any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this Appendix. This Appendix does not apply to personal information outside the scope of the CCPA.
- 1. SALE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION.
We do not sell your personal information for monetary payment, whatsoever. However, CCPA defines a “sale” of personal information broadly to include more than exchanges of personal information for monetary purposes. A sale can include sharing personal information with a third party for “valuable consideration,” or where the information shared can be used by the third party (even if they are performing services on our behalf) for that third party’s own commercial purposes.
We also share certain limited contact information with the suppliers of some of our products, to permit those suppliers to understand who is purchasing their product. This may also constitute a sale of personal information under CCPA.
- 2. PERSONAL INFORMATION SALES OPT-OUT.
If you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information at any time (the “right to opt out”). We do not sell the personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “right to opt in”) from either the consumer who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age. Consumers who opt in to personal information sales may opt out of future sales at any time.
To exercise the right to opt out, you (or your authorized representative) may To exercise the right to opt out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us at email@example.com or here Do Not Sell My Personal Info
Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales.
You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your opt-out rights. We will only use personal information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request.
- 3. CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS’ RIGHTS AND CHOICES.
The CCPA provides California residents with specific rights regarding their personal information, described below. Below are your CCPA rights and how to exercise those rights.
- a. Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights.
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. You could request:
- The categories of personal information we collected about you;
- The categories of sources of the personal information we collected about you;
- Our business or commercial purpose for collecting that personal information;
- The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information; or
- The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you.
- b. Deletion Request Rights.
You have the right to request that we delete some or all of the personal information that we have collected from you and retained, subject to a number of exceptions. We are not required to delete personal information that is: (a) necessary to complete a transaction with you or for warranty or product recalls; (b) used for security purposes, to prevent fraud, to fix errors, or to comply with law; (c) reasonable for us to use for internal purposes given our relationship with you; or (d) compatible with the context in which you provided the information. The list of exceptions above is not exhaustive, and we may also deny a deletion request as otherwise permitted by law.
- c. Exercising Your Rights.
To exercise your rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
- Calling us at 1-888-473-5297
- Emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Submitting a request here: CCPA Data Subject Request
Only you, or a person or entity 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. If you are making a request on behalf of another person, you must provide written legal documentation that you are authorized to act on behalf of that individual.
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; and
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We may not be able to fulfill 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. To verify your identity, we may request up to up to 3 pieces of personal information about you, and we reserve the right to take additional steps as necessary to verify your identity if we have reason to believe a request is fraudulent.
- d. Response Timing and Format.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the date we receive your verifiable consumer request. 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.
- e. Non-Discrimination.
You have the right to not be discriminated against for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
- Deny you goods or services;
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties;
- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services; or
- Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program's material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
- a. Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights.
- 4. OTHER CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS.
California's "Shine the Light" law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our Master Websites that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us through the information provided above.
