    • • The right to know, subject to certain exceptions:
      • o The categories of personal information we have collected about you;
      • o The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected;
      • o Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information;
      • o The categories of third parties with whom we share personal information, if any; and
