California law permits residents of California to request certain details about how their information is shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please contact using out contact form. However, please note that under the law, a business is not required to provide this information if it permits California residents to opt-in to, or opt-out of, this type of sharing. PIXY qualifies for this alternative option by providing you with the ability to opt-in to such sharing at the time we collect information about you.
