We do not knowingly “sell” personal information that we collect from you, in accordance with the definition of “sell” in the CCPA, and will treat personal information we collect from you as subject to a do not sell request.

California residents have the right to exercise the privacy rights under the CCPA. California residents (or their authorized agents acting on their behalf) may exercise the following rights by completing this Consumer Rights Request:

  • Know the ways in which we collect, use, share, disclose and otherwise process your Personal Information;
  • Know the specific pieces of Personal Information that we hold;
  • Request the deletion of your Personal Information, subject to several exceptions; and
  • Not to be unlawfully discriminated against for exercising these rights.

We reserve the right to take reasonable steps to verify your identity to a reasonable or reasonably high degree of certainty before fulfilling your request to know or delete. For example, we may send you an email to the email address that you provide to us, and request that you take action as described in our email to enable us to verify that the person who made the request controls and has access to the email address associated with the request. We may ask for supplemental information as needed to establish your identity. If the request to know or delete is submitted by an authorized agent we may ask California residents to verify their identity and to confirm that they authorized the requestor to act on their behalf.

We will make commercially reasonable efforts to identify Consumer PI that we collect, process, store, disclose, and otherwise use and to respond to your California Consumer privacy rights requests. We will typically not charge a fee to fully respond to your requests, but we may charge a reasonable fee, or refuse to act upon a request, if your request is excessive, repetitive, unfounded, or overly burdensome.

For your specific pieces of information, as required by the CCPA, we will apply heightened verification standards, which may include a request to provide further information.

You have the right to send us a request, no more than twice in a twelve-month period, for any of the following for the period that is twelve months prior to the request date:

You have the right to make or obtain a transportable copy, no more than twice in a twelve-month period, of your PI that we have collected in the period that is 12 months prior to the request date and are maintaining.

Please note that PI is retained by us for various time periods, so we may not be able to fully respond to what might be relevant for all 12 months prior to the request.

Except to the extent we have a basis for retention under CCPA, you may request that we delete your PI that we have collected directly from you and are maintaining. Note also that we are not required to delete your PI that we did not collect directly from you.

You may alternatively exercise more limited control of your PI by instead exercising one of the following more limited opt-outs, including unsubscribing from email newsletters.
