Please note that we do not respond to or honor DNT signals or similar mechanisms transmitted by web browsers.

15. Do Not Sell My Personal Information Opt-Out. Continuum does not sell Personal Information to third parties. However, under some interpretations of California’s Consumer Privacy Act, Continuum shares Personal Information gathered by cookies with our advertisers, as discussed herein, may be considered a “sale.” If you wish to opt out of such activities, you may do so by rejecting cookies and discontining use of our Site by clicking here.

If you request transfer of your Personal Information, we will provide you, or a third party you have chosen, with your Personal Information and data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format.
Although Continuum makes good faith efforts to provide people with access to their Personal Information, there may be circumstances in which Continuum is unable to provide access, including but not limited to: where the information contains legal privilege, would compromise others’ privacy or other legitimate rights, where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the person’s privacy in the case in question, or where it is commercially proprietary. If Continuum determines that access should be restricted in any particular instance, we will provide you with an explanation of why that determination has been made and a contact for any further inquiries. To protect your privacy, Continuum will take commercially reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to or making any changes to your Personal Information.
