Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
If you are a California resident and you wish to exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by calling us at 888-788-7526 or by emailing [email protected].
Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State whom you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your Personal Information. You also may make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability only twice within a 12-month period. A 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.
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. We will use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request only to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 15 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to an additional 15 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will cover only 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 Personal Information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance, specifically by electronic mail communication.
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.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
- Deny you goods or services;
- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services;
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties; 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.
