Exercising Access, Data Portability, Right to Correct and Deletion Rights

To exercise your access, data portability, right to correct and/or deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable CA User request to us by either:

Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable CA User access, data portability, right to correct and/or deletion rights request related to your personal information.

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

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that you are: (1) the person about whom we collected personal information; or (2) 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 that the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable CA User request does not require that you create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable CA User request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to all verifiable CA User access, data portability, right to correct and/or deletion rights requests within forty-five (45) days of the receipt thereof. If we require more time (up to ninety (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. Any disclosures that we provide will only cover the twelve (12) month period preceding the receipt of your verifiable request. The response that we provide will also explain the reasons that we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

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

Authorized Agents

Users may permit an Authorized Agent to exercise any rights granted under the CCPA and CPRA as set forth above. Any individual acting on your behalf as an agent must register with the California Secretary of State. Further, in order to utilize an Authorized Agent, you must provide the Authorized Agent with written permission from you to act on your behalf for these purposes. When you use an Authorized Agent to submit a request to opt-out, request to delete, request to limit, request to correct or a request to know, we may require the Authorized Agent to provide proof that you gave the agent signed permission to submit the subject request. We may also require you to do either of the following: (a) verify your own identity directly with us; or (b) directly confirm with us that you provided the Authorized Agent permission to submit the request.

  • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties;
