CALIFORNIA’S CONSUMER PRIVACY ACT

 

1.     California Residents’ Rights Under the California Consumer Privacy Act

 

If you are a California resident, you have certain rights regarding information that is treated as Personal Information under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, California Civil Code sections 1798.100 et seq. (“CCPA”). 

 

 

We do not sell your Personal Information; however, you have the right to know what categories of Personal Information we collect or disclose about you, as well as the categories of third parties who received your Personal Information and the categories of sources of that Personal Information.  These categories are described in the “Categories of California Consumers’ Personal Information Collected or Disclosed” section below.  We are also required to provide to you, before or at the point of collection, with a general notice about the categories of Personal Information collected by us and how we intend to use the collected Personal Information.

 

 

You have the right to request that we provide a copy of your Personal Information that we collected or disclosed in the preceding twelve (12) months. Only you, or someone you legally authorize to act on your behalf, may make a request related to your Personal Information. You may submit a maximum of two requests in a 12-month period. 

You must provide sufficient information to enable us to reasonably verify your identity or that of your authorized agent. We will only use the Personal Information provided in your request to verify your identity or that of your authorized agent.  Please note that we cannot provide any Personal Information in response to a request if we cannot verify your or your authorized agent’s identity, or your authorized agent’s authority to make the request on your behalf, and/or if we cannot confirm that the collected Personal Information relates to you.  

After receiving and verifying your request, we will provide the following information (depending on your request):

 

If we disclosed your Personal Information for a business purpose, we will provide:

 

See the “Methods for Submitting CCPA Requests to IME” section below for information on how you can exercise your right to access collected Personal Information. For more information, see also the “Response Timing and Format” section below.

 

 

With certain exceptions, you have the right to request that we and our service providers delete Personal Information we or our service provider collected or maintained. Once we receive and verify your request, we will delete and instruct any applicable service providers to delete your Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies.

 

We and our service providers may deny a verified deletion request if we must maintain your Personal Information to:

 

 

 

See the “Methods for Submitting CCPA Requests to IME” section below for information on how you can exercise your right to delete collected Personal Information.

 

 

We do not and will not sell your Personal Information.

 

 

We do not intend to provide goods or services to, or collect information from, California consumers who are less than 16 years of age. 

 

 

You have the right to equal service, and we will not discriminate against you if you exercise your rights under the CCPA. However, under certain circumstances, we may offer you special discounts or other incentives for the right to continue to collect or use your Personal Information.  In that event, we will notify you of the relevant program’s material terms and obtain your voluntary opt-in consent to the program.

 

2.     Categories of California Consumers’ Personal Information Collected, Sold, or Disclosed

 

We collect a variety of categories of Personal Information about California consumers, their household, and/or their devices.  We will not collect additional categories of Personal Information or use the Personal Information we collect for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing advance notice.

4.     Verification Process

 

Once we receive a request to know or to delete, we must verify your identity before we can respond.  

 

You may be required to provide the following information for verification purposes:

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you submit either a request to know specific pieces of Personal Information collected, or a request to delete sensitive, irreplaceable, or otherwise valuable Personal Information, you (or your authorized agent, if applicable) will be required to provide a signed declaration affirming your identity (or your authorized agent’s identity, if applicable). The declaration is included on the online CCPA Consumer Request to Know Form located here (Request to Know) and online CCPA Consumer Request to Delete Form located here (Request to Delete).

 

5.     Authorized Agents

 

An authorized agent is either a natural person or a business entity registered with the California Secretary of State that a consumer has authorized to act on his or her behalf.  

 

You may use an authorized agent to submit a request to know, to delete or to opt-out. Your agent will need to provide: either (1) a power of attorney; or (2) your written permission to allow the authorized agent to submit the request on your behalf and verification of your identity.

 

6.     Response Timing and Format

 

 

We will confirm receipt of a request from you within ten (10) days. This confirmation will provide information about how we will process the request, including a description of our verification process and an approximation of when we will send you a substantive response.

 

 

We will respond to a verifiable request from you within forty-five (45) days.  If we cannot respond in that time, we will notify you in writing that we need an additional forty-five (45) days and explain the reason for the needed additional time.  

 

We will deliver the written response by mail or e-mail, at your option.

 

Any disclosures we provide will cover only the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your verifiable request. If we cannot comply with your request, we will explain why. If you have requested to know specific Personal Information we collected, we will provide that information to you via mail or e-mail, at your option.

 

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