4. California Rights. The CCPA provides you with specific rights as a California resident. This section identifies those rights and how to exercise them.
(a) Access and Data Portability. Subject to certain exceptions, you have the right to request certain information about our collection, use, and/or disclosure of your Personal Information over the past 12 months. After receipt of a verifiable consumer request from you, we will disclose to you the categories of Personal Information collected, categories of sources for the categories of Personal Information collected, business or commercial purpose for collecting such Personal Information, categories of third parties with whom we shared such Personal Information, and specific pieces of Personal Information collected about you.
(b) Deletion. Subject to certain exceptions, you may request that we delete Personal Information about you that it has collected and retained.
(c) Non-Discrimination. You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment for the exercise of your privacy rights under the CCPA.
California Request Process.
Instructions. If you reside in California, only you or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf may make a verifiable consumer request related to your Personal Information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child, if applicable. You may make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability no more than twice within a 12-month period. Such a request must provide sufficient information to allow us to reasonably verify that you are (or are an authorized representative of) the person about whom we collected the Personal Information, and describe your request with sufficient detail to allow us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. Please note that we cannot respond to your request or provide you with information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Personal Information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify your identity or authority to make the request. If you reside in California, you may exercise your Personal Information rights by submitting verifiable consumer requests in one or more of the following manners:
If you are a California resident, you may make verifiable requests to exercise your Personal Information rights by emailing email@example.com.
If you prefer to submit your verifiable request to exercise your Personal Information rights by phone, you may contact us by phone toll free at 1.800.666.2811 or firstname.lastname@example.org or by submitting a request using any of the contact information set forth below.
Verifying Requests. We will confirm receipt of your request within the time period prescribed by the CCPA and/or its regulations, let you know how we will process the request, and let you know our verification process, and anticipated timeframe for response. We may try to verify your request by asking you to provide certain information and matching it to the information we maintain about you. We will request at least two data points about you. Depending on the nature of your request, we may require more data points to match and/or may require you to sign a declaration confirming under penalty of perjury that you are the consumer whose Personal Information is the subject of the request.
Authorized Agent. If you are a California resident, you may designate an authorized agent to make requests on your behalf to exercise your Personal Information rights. The authorized agent must be registered with California’s Secretary of State. The authorized agent making any request on your behalf to know or delete certain Personal Information about you must submit a copy of the written permission you granted them to act as authorized agent or a copy of the document showing you granted them a power of attorney for this purpose. If the authorized agent does not have a power of attorney in compliance with California’s probate law, you must also directly verify your identity with us. If adequate proof is not presented, we may deny the request.
Response Timing and Format. We will try to respond to a verified consumer request within forty five (45) days of receipt, but if we require more time to respond, we will let you know how long and why in writing. We will respond to you by mail or electronically at your option. Any disclosures we provide in response to your request will pertain only to the 12-month period immediately preceding receipt of the verifiable consumer request. If we are unable to respond to the request, we will explain why, if applicable. If we are unable to verify your identity in connection with a request for specific pieces of information about you, we will let you know (but will not disclose the specific pieces of information) and will evaluate the request as though it were a request for categories of Personal Information disclosed to third parties during the past 12 months. If we deny a request due to conflict with federal or state law or an exception to the CCPA, we will explain the basis for the denial. If we cannot verify your identity in connection with a request to disclose categories of information disclosed to third parties, we will let you know, and will provide you information about its general business practices regarding collection, maintenance, and sale of Personal Information. If we cannot verify the identity of an individual requesting deletion of personal data, we will deny your request and will treat the request as a request to opt-out of sale. We have no obligation to provide you with specific Personal Information if such disclosure creates a substantial, articulable, and unreasonable risk to security. For any data portability requests, we will provide your Personal Information in a .pdf format. Unless your request is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded, we will not charge a fee to process or respond to your request. If we determine that a fee is warranted, we will explain why it reached that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before responding.
5. Third Party Marketing. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users of the Site who are California residents to request certain information regarding disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us at the contact information set forth below.
I. Data Transfer.
J. Data Retention and Security.
Data Retention. We will store your Personal Information as long as you receive products or communications from us and as long as it is needed for its legitimate business purposes. We may store your Personal Information to the extent required to comply with our legal, accounting, and/or reporting requirements and to provide information about our products or information that you may request. Upon your request, we will delete or de-identify your Personal Information unless we are legally required or permitted to maintain such Personal Information. Additionally, we may continue to store your Personal Information contained in standard backups.
Data Security. The Site utilizes technical, organization, and administrative security measures designed to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure.
