For California Consumers
If you are a California resident, California law requires us to provide you with some additional information regarding how we collect, use, and share your “personal information” (as defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”)).
Categories of personal information we collect. Throughout this Notice, we discuss in detail some specific pieces of personal information we collect from and about users. Under the CCPA, we are also required to provide you with the “categories” of personal information we may collect. The categories we may collect are: identifiers (such as name, address, email address); commercial information (such as transaction data); financial data (such as credit card information); internet or other network or device activity (such as browsing history or Site usage); audio or visual information (such as CCTV video or call recordings if you do not opt out); biometric information (such as height or weight to provide appropriate sized apparel); potentially protected classifications (such as gender); and physical characteristics or description (e.g., if you voluntarily submit a photo); professional or employment related data (such as information about your type of work, title, or profession); general geolocation information (e.g., your city and state based on IP address, contact information including your physical address, or precise location, with your consent); and other information that identifies or can be reasonably associated with you.
How we use these categories of personal information. We and our service providers may use the categories of personal information we collect from and about you for the following business purposes (as those terms are defined in applicable law):
Examples of these types of uses are discussed throughout this Notice and specifically in the section on Sharing of Personal Information above. We may also use the categories of personal information for compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and we may combine the information we collect (“aggregate”) or remove pieces of information (“de-identify”) to limit or prevent identification of any particular user or device.
Categories of personal information we disclose for business purposes
We may disclose any of the categories of information noted above about you or your use of the Site or Activities for business purposes (as defined by applicable law) or as required by applicable law.
California Consumer Privacy Act Rights. The CCPA provides certain rights to California residents in connection with personal information that is collected and sold, as defined under the statute. For instance, if you are a California resident, you may request that we:
You may have the right to receive information about the financial incentives that we offer (if any). You also have the right to not be discriminated against (as provided for in applicable law) for exercising certain of your rights. These rights are subject to certain exceptions or qualifications, including that Personal Information subject to Gramm-Leach-Bliley is not covered by CCPA.
California Shine the Light Disclosure. The California “Shine the Light” law gives residents of California the right under certain circumstances to request information from us regarding the manner in which we share certain categories of personal information (as defined in the Shine the Light law) with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. We do not share your personal information with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes.
Do Not Sell Notice. CCPA sets forth certain obligations for businesses that “sell” personal information. Based on the definition of “sell” under the CCPA and under current regulatory guidance, we do not believe we engage in such activity based on information collected via the Site or the Activities and have not engaged in such activity in the past twelve months.
If you have questions about Coatue’s practices in connection with the Site or the Activities or want to exercise any of these rights, then please contact Coatue at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be required to verify your identify before we fulfill your request. To do so, you will need to provide information in connection with your submission to EMW or other materials associated with your participation in EMW. You can also designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf. To do so, you must provide us with written authorization or a power of attorney, signed by you, for the agent to act on your behalf. You will still need to verify your identity directly with us.

We may update this Privacy Notice to reflect changes to our information practices. If we make any material changes, we will notify you by email (sent to the email address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on this website prior to the change becoming effective.
