Your Rights and Choices
The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This subsection describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
Right to Know and Data Portability
You have the right to request that the Company discloses certain information to you about the Company’s collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months (the “right to know“). Once the Company receives your request and confirm your identity (see Exercising Your Rights to Know or Delete), the Company will disclose to you:
- The categories of personal information the Company collects about you.
- The categories of sources for the personal information the Company collected about you.
- The Company’s business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
- The categories of third parties with whom the Company shares that personal information.
- If the Company sold or disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing (1) sales, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient purchased, and (2) disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.
- The specific pieces of personal information the Company collected about you (also called a data portability request).
The Company does not provide a right to know or data portability disclosure for business to business (B2B) personal information.
Right to Delete
You have the right to request that the Company delete any of your personal information that the Company collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions (the “right to delete“). Once the Company receives your request and confirm your identity (see Exercising Your Rights to Know or Delete), the Company will review your request to see if an exception allowing the Company to retain the information applies. The Company may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for the Company or the Company’s service providers to:
- Complete the transaction for which the Company collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of the Company’s ongoing business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, or otherwise perform the Company’s contract with you.
- Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
- Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
- Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
- Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
- Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with the Company.
- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
The Company will delete or deidentify personal information not subject to one of these exceptions from The Company’s records and will direct the Company’s service providers to take similar action.
The Company does not provide these deletion rights for B2B personal information.
Exercising Your Rights to Know or Delete
To exercise your rights to know or delete described above, please submit a request under Contract Information above.
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a request to know or delete related to your personal information. To designate an authorized agent, please contact the Company under Contract Information above.
You may also make a request to know or delete on behalf of your child by contacting the Company under Contract Information above.
You may only submit a request to know twice within a 12-month period. Your request to know or delete must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows the Company to reasonably verify you are the person about whom the Company collected personal information or an authorized representative, which may include the Company verifying the consumer’s full name, address, email, phone number, and date of birth.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows the Company to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
The Company cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if the Company cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.
You do not need to create an account with the Company to submit a request to know or delete.
The Company will only use personal information provided in the request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make it.
Response Timing and Format
The Company will confirm receipt of your request within ten business days. If you do not receive confirmation within the 10-day timeframe, please contact the Company.
The Company endeavors to substantively respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If the Company requires more time (up to another 45 days), the Company will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
If you have an account with the Company, the Company will deliver the Company’s written response to that account. If you do not have an account with the Company, the Company will deliver the Company’s written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
Any disclosures the Company provides will only cover the 12-month period preceding the Company’s receipt of your request. The response the Company provides will also explain the reasons the Company cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, the Company will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
The Company does not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If the Company determines that the request warrants a fee, the Company will tell you why the Company made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
The Company will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, the Company will not:
- Deny you goods or services.
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
- Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
However, the Company may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive the Company offers will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
