  1. California Residents’ Rights and Choices

The CCPA provides California residents with specific rights regarding their personal information, described below.  Below are your CCPA rights and how to exercise those rights.

  1. Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights (“Right to Know”)

You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months.  You could request:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you;

  • The categories of sources of the personal information we collected about you;

  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting that personal information;

  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information; or

  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you.

 

Our employees and employees of our business partners and service providers do not have a Right to Know.

 

  1. Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that we delete some or all of the personal information that we have collected from you and retained, subject to a number of exceptions.  We are not required to delete personal information that is: (a) necessary to complete a transaction with you or for warranty or product recalls; (b) used for security purposes, to prevent fraud, to fix errors, or to comply with law; (c) reasonable for us to use for internal purposes given our relationship with you; or (d) compatible with the context in which you provided the information.  The list of exceptions above is not exhaustive, and we may also deny a deletion request as otherwise permitted by law.

Our employees and employees of our business partners and service providers do not have a Right to Deletion.

 

      c. Exercising Your Rights

To exercise your rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

  • Calling us at [toll-free number

  • Emailing us at [email address].

 

Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize 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 you are making a request on behalf of another person, you must provide written legal documentation that you are authorized to act on behalf of that individual.

 

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period.  The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative; and

  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

 

We may not be able to fulfill 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. To verify your identity, we may request up to up to three pieces of personal information about you, and we reserve the right to take additional steps as necessary to verify your identity if we have reason to believe a request is fraudulent.

​     

        d. Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt.  If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. 

 

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the date we receive your verifiable consumer request.  The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.  For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

 

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your 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 we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

 

      e. Non-Discrimination

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

  • Deny you goods or services;

  • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties;

  • Provide you a different 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
