The table below describes the categories of information we collect and disclose for a "business purpose," as that term is defined under California law. TownNews does not sell personal information about California residents. Please note that because this list is comprehensive, while a category may be marked that does not necessarily mean that we have information in that category about you. For example, while we transfer bank account numbers for our business purpose in paying our employees (e.g., direct deposit) we do not collect or transfer bank account numbers of individuals that submit questions on our website's "contact us" page.
