We use this information only as permitted by law and as set forth in this policy.
In an effort to respect your privacy, Indiana.com does not share, rent, or sell personally identifiable information with anyone outside of our organization.

CONSENT FOR DATA PROCESSING WHERE APPLICABLE (GDPR)
Beginning March 25, 2018, some countries outside of the United States began requiring explicit consent to process and/or use data gathered on certain sites. However, this site is controlled, operated and administered entirely within the United States. It offers its service only in the English language and does not target users in any other counties. If you are located outside the United States, please be aware that while visiting this site information you provide to us through the site may be processed and transferred to the U.S. The privacy and data protection laws in the U.S. may not be equivalent to such laws in your country of residence. By using the Services, you consent to this collection, transfer, storage, and processing of information to and in the U.S.
CALIFORNIA CONSUMER PRIVACY ACT (CCPA)
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a data privacy law that establishes right for residents of California to opt out of the “sale” of their “personal information” (as the law defines those terms), with the opt-out function offered via a prominent “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link on the “selling” party’s homepage. CCPA does recognize certain exceptions to the definition of “sale,” such that not all transfers of personal information are “sales.” For example, transferring personal information from users of this site to a “service provider” such as an Internet Service Provider (ISP) under the law is not a sale.
As a part of our continued commitment to users, we never sell personal information to third parties, however, to ensure compliance with CCPA, this site automatically uses “restricted data processing” which meets the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) compliance requirements for all users who our software and advertising partners (Google Analytics, etc.) determine visit this site from the State of California preventing a need for having users specifically “opt-out” by clicking on a “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link.
Restricted data processing restricts how our advertising and traffic statistic technologies uses certain unique identifiers when users visit and interact with the site, and limits data processed in the provision of services to users. With respect to data to which restricted data processing applies, these purposes include ad delivery, traffic reporting and measurement, security and fraud detection, debugging, and improving and developing features for the services.
