Please review this Privacy Policy carefully. In addition, please review the Terms of Use, which govern our use of BLUNTIQ Websites.

NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS

Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.83, residents of the State of California have the right to request from companies conducting business in California a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed certain categories of personal information during the preceding year for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes, and the categories of personal information the company shares. Alternatively, the law provides that a company may comply, as BLUNTIQ does, by disclosing in its privacy policy that it provides consumers choice (opt-out or opt-in) regarding sharing personal information with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes, and information on how to exercise that choice. As stated below in this Privacy Policy, BLUNTIQ provides you choice prior to sharing your personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If you do not opt-in or if you do not choose to opt-out at the time BLUNTIQ offers that choice, BLUNTIQ does not share your information with that identified third party for its direct marketing purposes.

If you are a California resident and you have questions about our practices with respect to sharing information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes and your ability to exercise choice, please send your request to the following email address: info@bluntiq.com or write to us at the following mailing address: 5815 Franklin Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028, Attn: Privacy/Legal Department. You must put the statement “Your California Privacy Rights” in the subject field of your e-mail or include it in your writing if you choose to write to us at the designated mailing address. You must include your name, street address, city, state, and zip code. We are not responsible for notices that are not labeled or sent properly, or do not have complete information. Please note that we are only required to respond to one request per customer each year.

For more information about our privacy practices, including when your information may be shared with third parties for purposes other than the direct marketing use by third parties, please review our full privacy policy below.

BLUNTIQ uses cookies and other similar technologies (e.g., web tags, pixel tags, clear GIFs, and web beacons, etc.) (collectively, “cookies”) to personalize your experience on BLUNTIQ Websites. Cookies are small files that are stored on your computer or mobile device which are uniquely assigned to individual users, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued such cookies. Some cookies are essential to your use and enjoyment of BLUNTIQ Websites. Among the primary purposes of these essential cookies is to indicate to our web server that a particular user has returned to a specific page and to enable our web servers to “remember” such users from prior visits and any preferences such users may have previously established.
