Your California Privacy Rights

To make such a request, please send an email to marketing@payomatic.com.

Do Not Track

Do Not Track (“ DNT”) is a concept promoted by certain regulatory authorities and industry groups for development and implementation of a mechanism that would allow internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites. Currently, various browsers (including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari) offer a DNT option that allows a user to set a preference in the browser to not have his/her activities on the internet tracked. You can usually access your browser's DNT option in your browser's preferences. When a user’s browser is set to DNT, some cookies and other tracking technologies may become inactive, depending on how the website visited responds to DNT browser settings. If that occurs, the website visited will not recognize you upon return to that website, save your passwords or user names, and some other features of a website may become unavailable or not function properly.

Given the lack of a standard in the industry pertaining to DNT settings and their use at this time, our Website does not obey DNT settings.

SMS Texts

We only communicate with you through SMS text (these are messages using cellphone data to transmit messages, using a mobile device) when you have given us your consent to such messages. If you decide you no longer wish to receive SMS messages from us, simply text STOP to any SMS text you receive from us.

Note that if you elect to communicate with us through SMS text, you may incur fees from your mobile carrier. You are responsible for all such mobile fees.

E-mail Messages

We may communicate with you through e-mail, consistent with the provisions of this policy. If you no longer wish to receive communications from us via e-mail, please use the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any e-mail from us, to modify your e-mail preferences.
