HOW TO EXERCISE YOUR CALIFORNIA CONSUMER RIGHTS
To Exercise Your Right to Access, Right to Know or Right to Deletion
To exercise your Right to Access, Right to Know or your Right to Deletion, please submit a request by:
- Emailing us at email@example.com with the subject line, “California Rights Request”
Before processing your request, we will need to verify your identity and confirm you are a resident of the State of California. In order to verify your identity, we will generally either require the successful authentication of your account, or the matching of sufficient information you provide us to the information we maintain about you in our systems. This process may require us to request additional personal information from you, including, but not limited to, your email address, phone number, and/or date of the last transaction on our Services.
In certain circumstances, we may decline a request to exercise the rights described above, particularly where we are unable to verify your identity or locate your information in our systems. If we are unable to comply with all or a portion of your request, we will explain the reasons for declining to comply with the request.
To Exercise Your Right to Opt Out of the Sale of Personal Information
To exercise your Right to Opt Out of the Sale of Personal Information, please submit a request by:
- Emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line, “CCPA Removal Request”
In certain circumstances, you are permitted to use an authorized agent (as that term is defined by the CCPA) to submit requests on your behalf through the designated methods set forth in this CA Notice where we can verify the authorized agent’s authority to act on your behalf.
For requests to know or delete personal information, we require the following for verification purposes:
1. a power of attorney valid under the laws of California from you or your authorized agent; or
2. sufficient evidence to show that you have:
a. provided the authorized agent signed permission to act on your behalf; and
b. verified your own identity directly with us pursuant to the instructions set forth in this CA Notice; or directly confirmed with us that you provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request on your behalf.
For requests to opt-out of personal information ”sales”, we require signed permission demonstrating your authorized agent has been authorized by you to act on your behalf.
Minors Under 16
We do not sell the personal information of consumers we know to be less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “Right to Opt In“) from either the minor who is between 13 and 16 years of age or the parent or guardian of a minor less than 13 years of age. Please contact us at email@example.com to inform us if you, or your minor child, are under the age of 16.
“Shine the Light”
In addition, we may offer you financial incentives for the collection, sale, retention, and use of your personal information as permitted by the CCPA that can, without limitation, result in reasonably different prices, rates, or quality levels. The material aspects of any financial incentive will be explained and described in its program terms. Please note that participating in incentive programs is entirely optional, you will have to affirmatively opt-in to the program and you can opt-out of each program (i.e., terminate participation and forgo the ongoing incentives) prospectively by following the instructions in the applicable program description and terms. We may add or change incentive programs, and/or their terms by posting notice on the program descriptions and terms, so check them regularly.
Each financial incentive or price or service difference related to the collection and use of personal information is based upon our reasonable, good-faith determination of the estimated value of such information to our business, taking into consideration the value of the offer itself and the anticipated revenue generation that may be realized by rewarding brand loyalty. We calculate the value of the offer and financial incentive by using the expense related to the offer.
