RIGHT TO KNOW
Subject to certain limits, you may ask us to provide you with the following information for the 12-month period preceding your request:
- The categories of Personal Information we collected;
- The categories of sources from which the Personal Information was collected;
- The business or commercial purposes for collecting Personal Information;
- The categories of third parties with whom we shared the Personal Information;
- The specific pieces of Personal Information we collected about you (also called a data portability request);
- If we disclosed Personal Information for a business purpose, a list of the disclosures for a business purpose and the Personal Information categories that each category of recipient purchased.
You may make no more than two requests for information in a 12-month period.
RIGHT TO REQUEST DELETION
You may also ask us to delete any Personal Information that we have collected from you. Under the CCPA, we are not required to delete Personal Information that is necessary to: provide our services; detect security incidents; protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; debug to identify and repair errors that impair our sites and/or services; enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with us; comply with a legal obligation; or use Personal Information internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided it.
RIGHT TO NONDISCRIMINATION
We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under the CCPA, including by:
- Denying you good or services;
- Charging you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits or through imposing penalties;
- Providing you a different level or quality of goods or services; or
- Suggesting that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods.
However, the CCPA permits us to offer you certain financial incentives that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels, which are related to the value of your Personal Information. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OR OPT-IN OF SALE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
The CCPA does grant consumers rights with respect to the sale of their Personal Information. If you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right to direct companies not to sell your Personal Information at any time. If you are between 13 and 16 years of age, your Personal Information can only be sold by companies that you affirmatively authorize to sell your Personal Information. If you are less than 13 years of age, your Personal Information can only be sold by companies that your parent or legal guardian affirmatively authorizes to sell your Personal Information. Continued (including its website, any mobile applications, and services included therein) is intended for a general audience and is not intended for use or view by children under 13 years of age, and we do not knowingly collect information about children or sell products to children. Consistent with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, we will not knowingly collect any information from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, you must ask your parent or guardian to assist you in using the System. Furthermore, we may restrict entries to any contests, sweepstakes, or promotions to entrants who are at least 18 years of age.
Consumers who opt in to Personal Information to Personal Information sales may opt out of future sales at any time.
SUBMISSION OF REQUESTS TO KNOW AND/OR REQUESTS TO DELETE
You may submit a request to know or a request to delete:
- Submitting this online form; or
- By submitting an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are required to verify your identity before responding to a request to know or a request to delete. If you have a password-protected account with us, we may verify your identity through our existing authentication practices for your account. To verify your identity, there will be a multifactor authentication for deletions. If you indicate on the online form that you would like to delete your records, we will require you to complete the email address field that matches your account email. A verification email will then be sent to that email address. You will need to respond to the email within 10 days before we can process your request. If the multifactor authentication is not complete in that timeframe, we will treat the deletion request as an opt out request instead.
Please note that following your verified request, we will send you your Personal Information from the following email address: email@example.com. Any response to your request, including any Personal Information, may be sent as an encrypted file.
Generally, we will process and respond to your request within 45 days. As permitted by the CCPA, if we need more time to respond, we will tell you why and our time to respond will be extended by an additional 45 days (up to 90 days total).
Once you have submitted a request, we will send you a receipt acknowledging your request within 10 days. Please be sure to check your email spam folder or filter for this receipt. If you do not receive such a receipt within 10 days of your submitted request, please send an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org because an error may have occurred.
You also have the right to designate an agent to exercise these rights on your behalf. We may require proof that you have designated an agent to exercise these rights on your behalf and to verify your identity directly with us. Please contact us at email@example.com for more information if you wish to submit a request through an authorized agent.
