Disclosures of Personal Information for a Business Purpose

We disclose your personal information to third parties for business purposes.

We share your personal information with the following categories of third parties:

  • Service providers, which we refer to as "vendors, consultants and other service providers" in our general privacy notice, above.

In the preceding 12 months, we have disclosed the following categories of personal information for business purposes:

  • Category D: Commercial information.

Sales of Personal Information

In the preceding 12 months, we have not sold consumers' personal information.

Your California Rights

The CCPA provides California consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

Requests to Access to Specific Information

You have the right to request that we disclose information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see below), we will disclose to you:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you.

If we sold or disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing:

  • Sales (if any) along with the personal information categories that each category of recipient purchased; and
  • Disclosures for a business purpose along with the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

Deletion Requests

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see below), we will delete (and direct any of our service providers that hold your data on our behalf to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers as permitted by law.

Right to Opt-out of Sales of Personal Information

CCPA provides California consumers with the right to opt-out of the sale of their personal information. This right does not apply to our use of personal information because we do not sell personal information and have not sold personal information in the past 12 months.

Exercising Your Rights

To exercise the rights described above, please submit a request to us via email at .

Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act 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 for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
  • We will only use personal information provided in a request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
  • We endeavor to respond to requests within 30 days of its receipt, but we are allowed by law to take up to 45 days to respond. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your 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.

Verification

Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.

Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

  • Deny you goods or services.
  • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
  • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

Although we are permitted under CCPA to offer certain financial incentives that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels, we do not presently do so.
