Who We Share Your Information With:
We may share or transfer information you provide to us or that we collect on the Site with other businesses that we acquire, are acquired by, or with which we merge or partner. In the course of doing business, we may share your information with third parties service providers with whom we contract to support our activities. Such services include maintaining and managing our end-user information, fulfillment processes, payment services, email management, and order and inventory management. When we disclose personal information for a business purpose, we enter into a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep the PII confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract.
We may also determine we need to share your information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith believe that the law requires it, for example, to (a) comply with the law or with legal process, (b) protect and defend our rights and property, (c) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Site, (d) protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public, or (e) in the event of bankruptcy proceedings.
In the preceding twelve (12) months, Guns.com has not sold PII.
Retention of Your Information
We may retain your questions and feedback in order to improve the Site. Do not send us any information, ideas, suggestions, proposals or comments that you consider confidential or that you wish to be treated as confidential. If you no longer want us to use or retain the PII you provided to us, you may contact us at email@example.com and request that we delete your PII from our records.
Third Party Privacy Practices.
We will undertake reasonable steps to protect all information, including PII, from unauthorized or accidental access, disclosure, misuse or processing, or from alteration, destruction, or loss. We use administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect your PII. We also use encryption on certain areas of our website, and on certain other areas, we do not use encryption. However, because no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, we cannot guarantee the security of information you submit to us.
Some of the information you may enter on our Site may be transmitted securely via a Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL. Credit card information should never be transmitted to us over email.
We may ask you to provide age-related information to help us comply with laws like the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. Because protecting the privacy of young children is especially important, we do not knowingly collect or maintain information from or about persons under 13 years of age. No part of our Site is structured to attract anyone under 13. If you are under 13, do not use or access the Site at any time or in any manner. If we learn that PII of persons under 13 has been collected on the Site without verified parental consent, we will take appropriate steps to delete this information.
Rights of Certain Types of Users
Subject to local law, you may have certain rights with regard to your PII. These rights may include the right to (1) access or rectify your PII or request its deletion, (2) request a restriction on the processing of your PII, (3) object to the processing of your PII, or (4) exercise other rights with respect to your PII.
To learn more about the PII we collect about you or the rights you may have, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Your Rights and Choices
The CCPA provides you with specific rights regarding your personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
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. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion), we will disclose to you the information required under CCPA.
Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request in certain circumstances. If we deny your request we will explain to you why retaining the information is necessary to us or our service providers and allowable under the CCPA.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
Only you, or someone legally authorized 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:
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.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. 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 45 more days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, 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.
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.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.
