Your California Privacy Rights
CALIFORNIA’S “SHINE THE LIGHT” LAW.
Companies that collect personally identifiable information (“PII”) from California residents and disclose such information to third parties (including affiliated entities) for marketing purposes must, in response to a request by a consumer, either (1) provide a list detailing the categories of information shared and the entities to which such information was provided, or (2) provide a mechanism by which a consumer may opt-out of having their information shared with third parties. PLCP has elected the second option and you may request that your PII not be shared with third parties by sending your request, including your full name, email address and postal address to:firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail to:
California Privacy Information, c/o Physician Life Care Planning, 11550 IH 10 West, Suite 273, San Antonio, Texas 78230.
In addition, California resident users are entitled to know that they may file grievances and complaints with California Department of Consumer Affairs, 400 R Street, Suite 1080, Sacramento, CA 95814; or by phone at 916-445-1254 or 800-952-5210 or by email to email@example.com.
CALIFORNIA’S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT.
PLCP does not track customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and, therefore, PLCP does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites may keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, your web browser allows you to set the DNT signal so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.
Limitations on Claims
Any cause of action you may have with respect to your use of the Web Site or the Materials must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises.
If you have not entered into another agreement with PLCP regarding the subject matter contained herein, then this Agreement comprises the entire agreement between you and PLCP and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous negotiations, discussions or agreements, whether written or oral, between the parties regarding such subject matter. However, if you and PLCP have entered into another agreement regarding the subject matter set forth herein that is a written and signed agreement between you and PLCP, then this Agreement should be read and interpreted in conjunction with such agreement and, in the event of a conflict between this Agreement and a written, signed agreement between the parties, the written, signed agreement shall govern and control. A printed version of this Agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this Agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of the Agreement or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of the Agreement, and the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.

PLCP may revise this Agreement at any time. Each time you access the Web Site, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement then in effect. It is your responsibility to review this Agreement each time you access the Web Site. PLCP does not and will not assume any obligation to notify you of changes to this Agreement.
