California Consumer Privacy Rights

This portion of our Privacy Policy advises California residents of the applicable rights as provided in the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and how to effectuate these rights by communicating with us. Under the CCPA, California residents have the following rights:

                 Right to know the Personal Information we collect about you, the categories of sources of Personal Information collected, the categories of sources from which Personal Information is collected, the business or commercial purpose for collecting or disclosing the Personal Information, the categories of third parties who have access to your Personal Information.

                 Right to request deletion of your Personal Information subject to certain exceptions. For example, we may deny your request if retaining your Personal Information is required under certain circumstances  such as: to complete the transaction for which we collected the Personal Information, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you; detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities; or comply with a legal obligation.

                 Right to opt-out of the sale of your Personal Information. However, since we do not currently sell your Personal Information, there is no need for you to opt-out.

                 Right to not face discrimination for asserting your rights. For example, we may not deny you goods or services, charge different prices or rates for goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties, provide you a different level or quality of goods or services, or suggest that you will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

 

Please note that we will verify your identity when we receive requests to access or delete your Personal Information to ensure the security of your Personal Information, which may require us to collect further information about you.

Responding to Your Rights Requests

We try to respond to all legitimate and verifiable requests within forty-five (45) days. It may take us longer than 45 days if your request is particularly complex, you have made several requests, or additional information is needed from you to process your request. In this case, we will notify you within the 45-day period and keep you updated.

If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically. If we cannot comply with your request, we will explain the reasons why we cannot comply.

Please note, for access requests, we retain Personal Information for a set period of time and may not be able to provide Personal Information processed longer than a 12-month period prior to the date of the request. Additionally, we are not legally obligated to action a request to access your Personal Information more than twice in a 12-month period prior to the request date. 

You will usually not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request under these circumstances.

Additional California Notices

In addition to CCPA rights, certain Californians are entitled to certain other notices. As these rights and your CCPA rights are not the same and exist under different laws, you must exercise your rights under each law separately.

Third Party Marketing and Your California Privacy Rights

We provide California residents with the option to opt-in or opt-out to sharing of “Personal Information” as defined by California’s “Shine the Light” law with third parties, other than with our affiliates, for such third parties’ own direct marketing purposes.
