The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) provides California residents (consumers) with specific rights regarding their Personal Information. This disclosure sets forth our privacy practices as required by the CCPA in those limited circumstances where we collect personal information that is not governed by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”). This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights as follows.
- The right to request that we disclose what personal information (as that term is defined in the CCPA) we collect, use, disclose, and sell.
- The right to request the deletion of personal information that we hold about you. Your request to delete your personal information may be denied if it is necessary for us to retain your information under one or more of the exceptions listed in the CCPA.
- The right to request access to the personal information that we have collected and maintained about you (along with information regarding its use and disclosure) over the past twelve (12) months upon appropriate verification. You may only make such requests twice (2) per every twelve (12) months.
- The right to opt-out of the sale of your personal information.
- The right not to be discriminated against for exercising any of your California privacy rights.
Only you, or a person that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a request related to your personal information. In the case of access and deletion, your request must be verifiable before we can fulfill such request. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority.
We do not and will not discriminate against you in the event you decide to exercise your rights under the CCPA. For example, we will not withhold products or services from you, prohibit you from using the website, charge you a higher price or provide you a lower level of service if you make a request related to your personal information.
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.
If you are a California resident and would like to exercise your rights under CCPA, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line, “CCPA Policy”.
