Your Rights and Choices
Request to Know -- access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the 12 months prior to receiving your request. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you:
- The categories of personal information we collected about you.
- The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
- The categories of third parties with whom we shared personal information we collected about you
- Our business or commercial purpose for collecting that personal information.
- Our business or commercial purpose for sharing that personal information with third parties.
- The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
We will deny your request to know if (i) we cannot verify your identity; (ii) the disclosure creates a substantial, articulable, and unreasonable risk to the security of your personal information, your account with us, or the security of our business’s systems or networks. In no event will we disclose your Social Security number, driver’s license number or other government-issued identification number, account password, or security questions and answers.
Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that we delete some or all of the personal information we have pertaining to you. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will separately reconfirm your request. After you confirm, we will then delete (and direct our service providers to delete, if applicable) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. We may deny your deletion request if we are unable to verify your identity or if we are not required to delete your Personal Information under the CCPA.
Exercising Access, Data Portability and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access, data portability or deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
- Calling us at 800.526.7585
Only you or an authorized agent may make a verifiable consumer related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
We are only required to respond to a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must provide sufficient information to allow us to verify you (or an authorized agent) are the person about whom we collected personal information.
We will not 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 use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request solely to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
Response Timing and Format
We will acknowledge receipt of your request to know or deletion request within 10 days. We will respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our response to the email address for that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our response by US mail or electronically at the email address in your request, at your option. All 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.
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.
- 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.
- Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
