Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Notice to California Residents

If you are a California resident, the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides you with a right to opt-out of the “sale” of your personal information to third parties. A “sale” of personal information is broadly defined to include transfers of personal information for monetary or other valuable consideration. TENA (together with its affiliates, “Essity”) shares certain personal information collected through this website with third parties under circumstances that might be deemed a “sale” under the CCPA when we allow third party technology partners to use cookies and other technologies to collect your information and present advertising messages based on your preferences and to help us identify other users likely to be interested in our products and services.

You can also opt-out of the use of your personal information for interest-based advertising in the following ways:

Visit the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) and/or Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) websites where you can opt-out of interest-based ads served by participating DAA and NAI members. Note, however, that not all advertising providers participate in the DAA and NAI. In addition, if you opt-out, you may still see online advertising from Essity and third parties, but the ads may be less relevant to you
Block third party cookies in your browser settings.
Use privacy browsers or ad-blocking browser plug-ins that let you block advertising trackers.
The opt-outs are device and browser based. Because the information being shared relates to your device ID and/or browser ID, you will need to opt out on each device and each browser. Opt-outs may be stored via cookies. If you clear cookies, or if your browser blocks cookies, your opt-out cookie may no longer be available so your opt-out choices can not to be honored. If you opt-out, Essity may still use your personal information to deliver contextual advertising or for non-interest based advertising purposes, such as analytics.

You can contact us at dataprivacy@essity.com to learn more about how to exercise your right to opt-out. Review our Global Privacy Policy and California Privacy Notice for more information about Essity’s privacy practices and your rights.
