YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS AND CHOICES

The CCPA provides California residents with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

Right to Access Your Personal Information: You have the right to request that we disclose the following information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you
  • The categories of sources for 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
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you

Right to Delete Your Personal Information: You have the right to request we delete the personal information we collected.

Exercising Access and Deletion Rights: To exercise the access and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either calling 888-419-4839 or at privacy@ͼ.com.

We cannot respond to 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. 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 the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.

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

Authorized Agents: If you wish to exercise access or deletion rights through an authorized agent, we require the following before we can process the request:

  • A copy of your written permission authorizing the agent to make the request;
  • That you verify your identity directly with us; and
  • Direct confirmation from you that you provided the agent permission to submit the request.

If your authorized agent has a valid power of attorney under California Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465, we may request proof of the power of attorney instead of the foregoing.

We may deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof you authorized them to act on your behalf.

Non-Discrimination: If you exercise your privacy rights under California law, we will not do any of the following in response:  

  • Deny you goods or services.
  • Charge you 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.
  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
