How to Exercise Your California Privacy Rights
To Exercise Your Right to Know or Right to Deletion
To exercise your right to know and right to deletion, please submit a request by:
- Filling out our Personal Data Request Form; or
- Emailing email@example.com with the subject line "California Rights Request"
We will need to verify your identity before processing your request. In order to verify your identity, we will generally either require the successful login to your account or the matching of sufficient information you provide us to the information we maintain about you in our systems. Although we try to limit the personal information collected in connection with a request to exercise the right to know and the right to deletion to that personal information identified on the Personal Data Request Form, certain requests may require us to obtain additional personal information from you. In certain circumstances, we may decline a request to exercise the right to know and right to deletion, particularly where we are unable to verify your identity.
To Exercise Your Right to Opt-Out of Personal Information "Sales"
Unless you have exercised your right to opt-out of personal information "sales", we may "sell" personal information to third parties, as that term is defined under California law. The third parties to whom we sell personal information may use such information for their own purposes in accordance with their own privacy statements, which may include re"sell"ing this information to additional third parties.

Do Not Sell My Info
You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your right to opt-out. However, we may ask you to provide additional personal information so that we can properly identify you in our dataset and to track compliance with your opt-out request. We will only use personal information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request. If you chose not to provide this information, we may only be able to process your request to the extent we are able to identify you in our data systems and authenticate you as authorized to receive the information.
Once you make an opt out request, you may change your mind and opt back in to personal information sales at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Shine the Light"
Minors Under Age 16
We do not sell the personal information of consumers we know to be less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the "Right to Opt In") from either the minor who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a minor less than 13 years of age.
In certain circumstances, you are permitted to use an authorized agent to submit requests on your behalf where (i) you provide sufficient evidence to show that the requestor is an authorized agent with written permission to act on your behalf and (ii) you successfully verify your own identity with us.
We may offer incentives in exchange for the retention or sale of personal information:
- In-Game Rewards & Currency: We offer nominal in-game currency and rewards to users when they choose to watch in-game video advertisements or connect their Facebook account. When a user chooses to receive the in-game currency and rewards, Zynga and its advertising partners use the information collected to serve the user with more relevant ads. Video and other relevant advertisements help support the game’s operation. A user can choose not to receive the in-game rewards and currency by electing not to watch in-game advertisements or by disconnecting their Facebook account through Facebook’s user settings.
We may update this CA Notice from time to time. When we make changes to this CA Notice, we will change the "Last Updated" date at the beginning of this CA Notice. If we make material changes to this CA Notice, we will notify you by email to your registered email address, by prominent posting on our online services, or through other relevant communication channels. All changes shall be effective from the date of publication unless otherwise provided in the notification.
