Who We Disclose PII To:
Data Request Rights:
As a California consumer, you have the right to make verifiable access and deletion requests no more than twice in a 12-month period after providing a verifiable consumer request. A verifiable consumer request can be made using the contact methods provided at in the “Contact Us” section at the bottom of the page. You may also authorize someone to make a verifiable consumer request on your behalf or you can make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. It is important that your request provide sufficient information to allow us to reasonably identify you or the person about whom we collected PII and describes your request with sufficient detail so that we can respond to it. We cannot respond to requests that do not provide sufficient information.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 45 days unless the complexity and volume of requests warrant more under applicable law), 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 verifiable consumer request’s receipt. 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 PII 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.
Data Access Requests:
You have the right to know the categories of PII we have collected about you in the last 12 months, the categories of sources from which PII is collected, the business purposes for collecting PII data, the specific PII data we collected about you (also called a data portability request), and the categories of PII data disclosed for business purposes. To submit a data access request, please use one of the contact methods provided at in the “Contact Us” section at the bottom of the page and let us know you want to make a “California Consumer Data Access Request”. We do not provide these access or portability rights for B2B personal information.
Data Deletion Requests:
You have the right to request that we delete your PII subject to certain exceptions. To submit a data access request, please use one of the contact methods provided at in the “Contact Us” section at the bottom of the page and let us know you want to make a “California Consumer Data Deletion Request”.
We may deny your deletion request if we are unable to verify your identity after making all reasonable efforts or if any of the following apply:
- Complete the transaction for which we collected the PII, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, 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.
- Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
- Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
- Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
- Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
We have not sold PII and currently have no plans to sell PII. To opt-out of any potential future selling of data, please use our contact us form with “California Consumer Selling Data Request” at the start of the message.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising your CCPA rights. 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. We may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your PII’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time. We currently provide financial incentives through our giveaways and contests described in Section 1. Data Collection and Use.
