Your Rights over Your Personal Information

The CCPA provides You with specific rights regarding Your Personal Information. This section describes Your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

You have the right to request that We provide certain information to You about Our collection and use of Your Personal Information over the past twelve (12) months. Once We receive and verify Your request, we will provide You with certain information such as the categories of Your Personal Information collected, the sources of Your Personal Information, and the business purposes for collecting Your Personal Information and any additional information as required by the CCPA.

You have the right to request that We delete Your Personal Information subject to certain exceptions. Once We receive and verify Your request, We will delete, and direct Our service providers to delete, Your Personal Information from Our records, unless an exception applies. These exceptions may include where the Personal Information is necessary to complete the transaction for which We collected the Personal Information, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of Our ongoing business relationship with You, comply with Our legal obligations, or make other internal and lawful uses of that Personal Information that are compatible with the context in which You provided it.

To exercise Your rights described above, please submit a request to Us by:

Only You, or a person duly authorized on Your behalf, may make a request related to Your Personal Information. You may also make a request on behalf of Your minor child.

You may only make a request twice within a twelve (12) month period. Each request must provide sufficient information that allows Us to reasonably verify You are the person about whom We collected Personal Information or that you have duly authorized the person making the request on Your behalf. Your request must contain sufficient detail that allows Us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. In some instances, We may not be able to comply with Your request, in which case We will respond with the reasons that prevent Us from complying.
