Your California Privacy Rights
• We Do Not Sell Your Personal Information
The CCPA requires us to disclose whether we sell your personal information. We do not sell your personal information.
• Categories of Personal Information We Collect
• Requests to know
If you are a California resident, under certain circumstances in accordance with applicable law, you have the right to request that we disclose to you specific details about your personal information that we have collected, used, disclosed and sold over the past 12 months and/or a copy of your personal information. These details include: (1) the categories of personal information we have collected about you; (2) the categories of sources from which the personal information is collected; (3) the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information; (4) the categories of third parties with whom we share personal information; (5) the specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you.
Once we receive your request, we will acknowledge it and either respond in accordance with law; ask for additional information to verify your identity; clarify the nature of your request; let you know if we need more time to process your request; let you know if we need to charge a fee (such as if requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of their repetitive character, taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or communication or taking the action requested); or we will inform you if we cannot fulfill any part of your request due to an exception under the law.
• Requests to delete
If you are a California resident, under certain circumstances in accordance with applicable law, you have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your valid verifiable request, we will delete, de-identify or aggregate your personal information and direct our service providers to do so, or we will inform you if we cannot fulfill any part of your request due to an exception under the law.
The verifiable request must:
o Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative. Please, however, refrain from sending us sensitive personal information.
o Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
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 request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe in accordance with applicable law. Any disclosures we provide may only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable request’s receipt, as required by law.
• Information sale and the right to opt-out
If you are a California resident, you have the right to direct a business not to sell your personal information. Please note that we do not sell your personal information, so there is no action required from you to opt-out of selling your information.
In accordance with applicable law, we will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your California privacy rights.
