California Civil Code § 1798.83, also known as the “Shine the Light” law, provides California residents with the right to request, once per year, without charge, information from website operators and owners regarding the Personal Information they collect online and offline, if any, and the third parties, including affiliates, with which they have shared this information during the preceding calendar year, for the direct marketing purposes of the third party. If such information is collected and shared with third parties for their direct marketing purposes, the website operator or owner is required, upon request, to provide the list of categories of Personal Information they collect, if any, and the names and addresses of all third parties with which it has shared such information for direct marketing purposes. Capitalized terms in this Your California Privacy Rights are defined in the Definitions section of this Your California Privacy Rights.
A website operator or owner may meet its obligations, and be exempt from such disclosures, under the Shine the Light law, if it provides California residents the right to opt-out of, and thereby prohibit, the website operator or owner from sharing such Personal Information with third parties including its affiliates, for the direct marketing purposes of the third party.

Horton extends California residents certain rights related to their Personal Information, including the right to ask that we “Do Not Sell Your Personal Information,” Delete your Personal Information, Correct your Personal Information or the right to request Access to the categories or specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you. California residents also have the right to not be treated differently by D.R. Horton in response to your decision to exercise any of these rights.
