Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Best Buy does not sell (as “sell” is traditionally defined) your personal information to third parties. 

That is, we don’t provide your name, phone number, address, email address or other personal information to third parties in exchange for money. 

But under California law, sharing information for advertising purposes may be considered a “sale.” If you have visited our website or used our mobile apps within the past 12 months and you’ve seen ads, under California law your information was “sold” to our advertising partners.
