If you are a California resident, you may ask us to disclose what personal information we have about you and what we do with that information, to delete your personal information and not to sell your personal information. You also have the right to be notified, before or at the point we collect your personal information, of the types of personal information we are collecting and what we may do with that information.
a. Collection, Use and Sharing Practices
b. Your Right to Know
You may request that we disclose to you what personal information we have collected, used, shared, or sold about you, and why we collected, used, shared, or sold that information. Specifically, you may request that we disclose:
c. Your Right to Delete
You may request that we delete personal information we collected from you and to tell our service providers to do the same. However, there are many exceptions that allow us to keep your personal information. For example, we may deny your request to delete for the following reasons:
You have the right to not be discriminated against if you exercise CCPA privacy rights. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. This means, for instance, that we will not deny you services, charge you a different price, including a discount or other benefit or impose a penalty for the exercise of your CCPA rights.
e. How To Exercise Your Privacy Rights
You can exercise these rights in several ways.
You may make the request on your own behalf or on behalf of your minor child. Another person who is legally authorized to act on your behalf may also submit a request for you. Please describe your request in sufficient detail to allow us to understand the nature of the request, evaluate and respond to it. Please provide sufficient information with your request to allow us to verify that you are the person about whom we collected personal information, or an authorized representative of that person.
We will promptly acknowledge receipt of your request and begin our verification process.
f. How We Will Verify and Respond
Before we respond to any request involving personal information, the CCPA requires that we confirm the identity of the person making the request, and if the request is made on behalf of another person, their authority to make the request on the other person’s behalf. We are not obligated to provide or to delete any information pursuant to your request if we are unable to adequately verify your identity or the identity of the person making the request on your behalf.
Accordingly, we reserve the right to deny any request where we are unable to satisfactorily confirm your identity. If you have authorized someone to make a request on your behalf, we reserve the right to deny the request if we are unable to adequately verify the identity of that person or if we are unable to verify that the individual making the request is authorized to act on your behalf.
We will attempt to verify your identity by matching any information provided in your request against the personal information already in our possession. If you have authorized someone to make a request on your behalf, we will attempt to verify the identity of that person. We will also seek to confirm that you have authorized that person to submit a request on your behalf, which may include requesting a copy of any written authorization or power of attorney for the request. This process does not require that you establish any type of account with us, or sign up to receive any of our services.
The amount of information we may require in our verification process will depend on a variety of factors, including the nature of your request, the type, sensitivity, and value of the personal information in our possession, the potential risk of harm that could result from any unauthorized access to or deletion of your personal information, the likelihood that fraudulent or malicious actors would seek your information, and whether the information provided to us in your request is sufficient to protect against fraudulent requests or being fabricated or spoofed. For instance, we will require more points of confirmation if you request that we disclose specific pieces of information rather than categories of information in our possession. Concerning a request to delete information, once we confirm your identity we will separately confirm that you want the information deleted.
During our verification process, we may request additional information from you. Any information provided to us during our verification process will only be used for purposes of verifying your identity or the identity and-or authority of the person making the request.
We will endeavor to respond within forty-five (45) days of receipt of your request. If, however, we are unable to respond within that time, we will notify you of the reason and the additional time needed to make our response. The CCPA permits us to extend the time of our response by up to an additional forty-five (45) days.
If we deny a request in whole or in part, we will endeavor to explain the reasons for our denial.
g. CCPA’s Limitations on Disclosures
We are not obligated under the CCPA to respond to any request where compliance or disclosure would violate an evidentiary privilege under California law or conflict with federal or state law.
The CCPA does not require that we provide personal information to you more than twice in a twelve month period.
Any disclosures we make may only cover the twelve (12) month period preceding the request.
We will not charge a fee to process or respond to your request and will provide information free of charge. Where a person’s requests are repetitive, manifestly unfounded, or excessive, the CCPA authorizes us to either charge a reasonable fee that takes into account our administrative costs, or refuse to act on the request and notify the person making the request our reason for refusing the request. If we determine that a request warrants a fee, we will explain our decision and will endeavor to provide you with a cost estimate.
Regulations proposed by the California Attorney General prohibit us from disclosing specific pieces of personal information if the disclosure creates a substantial, articulable, and unreasonable risk to the security of that information or the security of our systems or networks. These proposed regulations further prohibit us from disclosing in response to your request a social security number, driver’s license number, other government issued identification number, financial account number, any health insurance or medical identification number, an account password or security questions and answers.
The California Civil Code permits California Residents with whom we have an established business relationship to request that we provide you with a list of certain categories of personal information that we have disclosed to third-parties for their direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year. To make such a request, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or write to us at the address listed below. Please mention that you are making a “California Shine the Light” inquiry.
