The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information—the Right to Know, the Right to Delete, the Right to Opt-Out, and the Right to Non-Discrimination. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights, if applicable.

2.1 Right to Know:

You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information over the past 12 months (“Right to Know”).  Once we receive and verify your request, unless an exemption applies, we will disclose to you:

  • Categories of Personal Information Collected and Shared
    • The categories of personal information we collected about you
    • The sources for the personal information we collected about you
    • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting that personal information

  • Specific Information
    • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you

2.2 Right to Delete:

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected and retained (“Right to Delete”). Once we receive and verify your request, we will delete, de-identify, or aggregate your personal information (and direct our service providers to do the same), unless an exemption or exception applies.

 

We may deny your Request to Delete if retaining the personal information is necessary for us or our service providers to:

  • Complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected, provide a good or service requested by the consumer, or reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with the consumer, or otherwise perform a contract between the us and the consumer.
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; or prosecute those responsible for that activity.
  • Debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise his or her right of free speech, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act pursuant to Chapter 3.6 (commencing with Section 1546) of Title 12 of Part 2 of the Penal Code.
  • 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 businesses’ deletion of the information is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of such research, if the consumer has provided informed consent.
  • To enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with the expectations of the consumer based on the consumer’s relationship with the business.
  • Comply with a legal obligation.

2.3 Right to Opt-Out:

Under the CCPA, you have the right to opt-out of the sale of your personal information (“Right to Opt-Out”).  However, we do not sell your personal information.  Further, we do not sell the personal information of minors under 16 years of age without affirmative authorization. 

2.4 Right to Non-Discrimination:

You have the right to not be discriminated against for exercising your rights under the CCPA.  Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

  • deny you goods or services;
  • charge you higher prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties;
  • provide you a lower level or quality of goods or services; or
  • suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

3. SUBMITTING A REQUEST TO KNOW OR REQUEST TO DELETE

3.1 How to submit a request:

To make a Request to Know or Request to Delete, please contact us by either:

Only (1) you, (2) a person authorized by you to act on your behalf, or (3) an entity registered with the California Secretary of State and authorized by you to act on your behalf, may make a Request to Know or Request to Delete related to your personal information. You may also make a request on behalf of your minor child.

You may only make a Request to Know twice within a 12-month period.

A Request to Know or Request to Delete must:

  • provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative. We will need to verify your identity including name and email address.  You may also need to provide us with a phone number and mailing address to process your request; and
  • describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

3.2 Authorized Agents:

Before we can respond to a Request to Know or Request to Delete submitted by an authorized agent, we need to verify not only that person or entity’s authority to act on your behalf but also verify the identity of the authorized agent. 

If you are authorized to submit a request on behalf of a California resident, please email us at [email protected] and provide the following information:

  1. To verify your authorization to request on behalf of a California resident, please attach a copy of one or more of the following to your request email:
  • California Secretary of State entity details and signed permission from the California resident (if the agent is a business entity),
  • signed permission from the California resident (if the agent is an individual), or
  • a valid power of attorney

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. We will only use personal information provided in a request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

3.3 Response Timing and Delivery Method:

We will acknowledge receipt of a Request to Know or Request to Delete within 10 business days of its receipt.  We will respond to a request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 45 additional days for a total of 90 days from receipt of the request), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically. Any response to Request to Know we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of the request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

4. DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS

Do Not Track is a web browser setting that requests websites and applications to disable their tracking of an individual user. Our site honors Do Not Track settings in your browser.
