For purposes of the CCPA personal information means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California resident or household. CCPA Rights

The CCPA provides California residents with the following rights regarding their personal information.

You also have the right to request a copy of the specific pieces of personal information we collected about you. You may make Information Access Requests up to twice during a 12-month period.

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you, the sources of the information, our business or commercial purpose for collecting the information and whether the information was disclosed for a business purpose, shared or sold.
  • The categories of information we disclosed for a business purpose and the categories of information we sold or shared during the prior 12 months along with the categories of recipients of such information.

Once we receive and confirm your verifiable request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. You may make deletion requests at any time. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us and compatible with the context in which you provided the information.
  • Comply with a legal obligation.
