CALIFORNIA CONSUMER PRIVACY ACT
California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”)
The CCPA gives consumers the right to request that we (1) disclose what personal information we collect, use, disclose, and sell, and (2) delete certain personal information that we have collected or maintain. You may submit these requests to us as described in the Contact Us section of this Policy.
However, by way of example, these rights do not apply where we collect or sell a consumer’s personal information if: (1) we collected that information while the consumer was outside of California; (2) no part of a sale of the consumer’s personal information occurred in California; and (3) no personal information collected while the consumer was in California is sold. In addition, de-identified information is not subject to these rights. Furthermore, if your information is collected in the context of a business relationship with us, it may not currently be covered by the CCPA.
If a request is submitted in a manner that is not one of the designated methods for submission, or if the request is deficient in some manner unrelated to our verification process, we will either (1) treat the request as if it had been submitted in accordance with the designated manner, or (2) provide you with specific directions on how to submit the request or remedy any deficiencies with the request, as applicable.
Request to Know. You have the right to request: (1) the specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you; (2) the categories of personal information we have collected about you; (3) the categories of sources from which the personal information is collected; (4) the categories of personal information about you that we have sold and the categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold; (5) the categories of personal information about you that we disclosed for a business purpose and the categories of third parties to whom the personal information was disclosed for a business purpose; (6) the business or commercial purpose for collecting, disclosing, or selling personal information; and (7) the categories of third parties with whom we share personal information. Our response will cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of a verifiable request.
Request to Delete. You have a right to request the erasure/deletion of certain personal information collected or maintained by us. We will delete your personal information from our records and direct any service providers (as defined under applicable law) to delete your personal information from their records.
Excessive Requests. If requests from a consumer are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of their repetitive character, we may either (1) charge a reasonable fee, or (2) refuse to act on the request and notify the consumer of the reason for refusing the request. If we charge a fee, the amount will be based upon the administrative costs of providing the information or communication or taking the action requested.
Non-Discrimination. You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us due to your exercise of the rights provided by the CCPA. We do not offer financial incentives and price or service differences, and we do not discriminate against consumers for exercising their rights under the CCPA.
No Sales of Personal Information. Under the CCPA, you have the right to direct us to stop selling your personal information to third parties and to refrain from doing so in the future. For purposes of the CCPA, we do not sell personal information as defined under applicable law, and we have not sold personal information during the past 12 months.
Verification Process. We are required by law to verify the identities of those who submit requests. To determine whether the individual making the request is the consumer about whom we have collected information, we will verify your identity by matching the identifying information provided by you in the request to the personal information that we already maintain about you. If we cannot verify the identity of the person making a request, we may deny it in whole or in part. We will inform you if we cannot verify your identity.
Authorized Agents. Authorized agents may submit requests via the methods identified in this Policy. If you use an authorized agent to submit a request, we may require you to: (1) provide the authorized agent with signed permission to do so; (2) verify your identity directly with us; and (3) directly confirm with us that you provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request. However, we will not require these actions if you have provided the authorized agent with power of attorney pursuant to the California Probate Code. We may deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by the consumer to act on their behalf.
