We also may share Your Personal Information when required to by law; to protect Your rights and safety, and with Your consent.
Specifically, we may share Your Personal Information with Third-Parties, including:
a. Authorized service providers: We may share Your Personal Information with our authorized service providers that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include relationship management software; website hosting; evaluators, contractors and auditors; email marketing providers; customer service providers; providers that perform business and operations analysis for us; and providers that support and maintain our Website, including providing analytics services for us.

VIII. How Long do We Store and Maintain Your Personal Information?
IX. Sale of Your Personal Information
CSE does not sell any Personal Information that it has collected via our Website to any third parties. However, under recent guidance from the California Attorney General, our use of analytics providers for our Website may be considered a sale under California Law. Thus, to the extent that such activity constitutes a sale, this would be the only situation in which we would sell Your Personal Information.
CSE maintains a comprehensive Information Security Program that employs commercially available physical and IT securitization tools, including but not limited to:
- Commercially available and sufficient firewalls;
- Segmented Data Storage;
- Multi-factor authentication; and
- Policies providing for least privileged access to data across our organization.
Unfortunately, however, there is no way to completely eliminate the risk of a data security incident. If we do suffer one that affects any of Your Personal Information, we will report the same to you as per applicable data breach notification laws. If you have any questions about the cybersecurity for our Website, you can send an email to email@example.com.

XIII. California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (“CPRA”) Law Notice
The CPRA applies to “consumers” who reside in California. It does not, however, apply to all types of information collected or all transactions conducted, and generally does not apply to information that has been collected or shared pursuant to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (Pub. L. No. 106-102, 113 Stat. 1338, codified in relevant part primarily at 15 U.S.C. §§ 6801-6809, §§ 6821-6827)(“GLBA”) as that law provides its own level of protection to Your Personal Information. Accordingly, even if You are a consumer that lives in California, the CPRA may not be applicable to our collection of Your Personal Information if it is done in connection with obtaining or utilizing an insurance policy with us as that transaction would fall under the ambit of the GLBA. The CPRA does apply to any Personal Information that we may have collected from You, as described above and herein, via our Website though.
b. Sale Of Your Personal Information
As noted above, we generally do not sell Your Personal Information, but under California State Law, our use of an analytics provider for our Website may be considered a sale or sharing. Thus, this would be the only instance in which we would sell Your information.
