If you are a California resident and the CCPA applies, you have the following rights:
You have a right not to receive discriminatory treatment for the exercise of privacy rights conferred by the CCPA, including, but not limited to, by:
However, we may charge you a different price or rate, or provide a different level or quality of goods or services, if that difference is reasonably related to the value provided to us by your data. In addition, we may offer financial incentives, including payments to you as compensation, for the collection of personal information, the sale of personal information, or the deletion of personal information. We may also offer a different price, rate, level, or quality of goods or services to you if that price or difference is directly related to the value provided to us by your data. We will notify you of such financial incentives. We will enter you into a financial incentive program only if you give us prior opt-in consent which clearly describes the material terms of the financial incentive program, and which may be revoked by you at any time. We will not use financial incentive practices that are unjust, unreasonable, coercive, or usurious in nature.
If you wish to submit a CCPA request, you have three options. You may complete and submit the appropriate online request form in our online request portal. Use the following links to access the online request portal:
Disclose my Information – Disclosure request form.
Delete My Information – Deletion request form.
Do Not Sell My Personal Information – Opt-out request form.
You may submit a request yourself or through an authorized agent. If you choose to have an authorized agent submit a request for you, your authorized agent must email us a form, signed by you, authorizing the agent to submit a request on your behalf. The authorized agent will then need to submit a request using one of the three methods listed above.
We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their consumer privacy rights in accordance with applicable consumer privacy laws. If your request is subject to the CCPA, within 15 days of receiving your request, we will confirm that we received it and explain to you how we will process it, including any further information we may need.
When you submit a disclosure or deletion request, we will need to verify your identity. We will also need to verify your identity if you use an agent to submit a request on your behalf. To verify your identity, we will match information that you provide us with information in our records.
We may require you to provide us with additional information to complete our verification or to respond to your request. We will use this information only for purposes of verifying your identity and responding to your request, where we are required to do so. We will delete information that you provide us to verify your identity after we process your request, unless we are required by law to maintain a record of it. Any information that we maintain will be securely protected consistent with our general information security practices.
There may be requests that we are unable to fulfill. For instance, we may deny requests when required by law, when we are unable to verify your identity, when complying with your request would interfere with the rights of others, or when necessary to exercise or defend legal claims. This is not a comprehensive list and we reserve the right to refuse your request in other circumstances. If we refuse your request, we will explain to you our reasons for such refusal.
