XI. CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: Summary Of Consumer Rights Under The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”)
A. The CCPA And Personal Information.

The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), effective January 1, 2020, as clarified by the California Consumer Privacy Act Regulations approved on August 14, 2020, grants privacy rights to California consumers in connection with their Personal Information.

Personal Information or “PI” is “information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.” PI, as defined in the CCPA, does not include personal information that is already subject to sector-specific privacy laws, including the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), a federal law that imposes requirements on financial institutions to protect consumer data.

A consumer has rights regarding his/her PI, including:

• A right to know what PI is collected, used, shared or sold by the business;

• A right to access PI collected and retained by the business;

• A right to require businesses and, by extension, their service providers, to delete PI, subject to certain exceptions;

• A right to opt-out of the business’ sale of PI; and

• A right to non-discrimination in terms of pricing or service for choosing to exercise a privacy right under the CCPA.

For purposes of the CCPA, PI does not include:

• Publicly available information from government records;

• De-identified or aggregated consumer information; or

• Information excluded from the CCPA’s scope, such as: health or medical information covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the California Confidentiality of Medical Information Act (CMIA) or clinical trial data; or Personal Information covered by certain sector-specific privacy laws, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FRCA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) or California Financial Information Privacy Act (FIPA), and the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act of 1994.

B. Consumer Right to A Notice of Collection.

A business subject to the CCPA must, at or before the point of collection of PI, inform a consumer as to the categories to be collected and the purposes for which it shall be used.

C. Consumer Right to Know.

A covered business must disclose in its privacy policy the PI it has collected, sold, or disclosed for a business purpose in the past 12 months.

A business must disclose the following in response to a verifiable request to know:

• The categories of PI the business has collected about the consumer;

• The categories of sources from which that PI was collected;

• The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling PI;

• The categories of third parties with which the business shares PI;

• The categories of PI the business sold and categories of third parties to which it was sold;

• The categories of PI the business disclosed for a business purpose and associated categories of third parties to whom those categories were disclosed; and

• If requested, the specific pieces of PI the business has collected.

D. Consumer Right to Delete.

A California consumer has the right to request that a covered business delete his/her PI, subject to certain exceptions. Once a request is reasonably verified by the business, the PI requested to be deleted must be removed from the records held by that business and the business must direct its Service Providers with whom the information was shared to also delete the information, unless it is subject to an exception.

A request to delete may be denied if retaining the information is necessary to:

1. Complete the transaction for which it collected the PI, provide a good or service requested by the consumer, take action reasonably anticipated within the context of the ongoing business relationship with the consumer, or otherwise perform a contract with the consumer.

2. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.

3. Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.

4. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.

5. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 seq.).

6. Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.

7. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on the consumer’s relationship with the business.

8. Comply with a legal obligation.

9. Make other internal and lawful uses of the information that are compatible with the context in which the consumer provided it.

E. Consumer Right to Non-Discrimination.

A business must not discriminate against a consumer who exercises CCPA rights. A business may charge different prices or provide a different quality of goods or services, but only if the difference is reasonably related to the value provided to the consumer by the consumer’s data. A business may offer financial incentives to a consumer for the collection, sale, or deletion of personal information on a prior, opt-in consent basis.

F. Consumer Right to Opt-Out.

A business that sells PI to third parties must provide notice to consumers, clearly inform them of the right to opt out of the sale, and provide a “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link on its website that enables the consumer to opt out of future sales.

A business is prohibited from selling the PI of a consumer the business knows is less than 16 years of age, unless (for a child between 13 and 16 years of age) the child has affirmatively authorized the sale or (for a child less than 13 years of age) the child’s parent or guardian has affirmatively authorized the sale.

G. Privacy Policy Requirements.

A business must include the following in its privacy policy, to be updated every 12 months:

•      A description of consumer CCPA rights, including the right to opt out of the sale of PI and a separate link to a “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” internet webpage if the business sells PI;

• The method(s) by which a CCPA request can be submitted; and

• A list of the categories of PI the business has collected, sold, or disclosed for a business purpose in the preceding 12 months.

XII. How Do I Exercise My CCPA Rights?  
A. Instructions For Submitting A CCPA Consumer Rights Request To Us

If you are a California resident and wish to submit a CCPA Request to the Company, you may use one of the following methods:

Fill out a Form on our Website:

Reach us by email or U.S. mail at: [email protected]

Call us, Toll-Free, at:  +1 844-647-6491

Please be advised that we are only required to respond to your request to know or access twice in any 12-month period.

We are required to keep a record of your CCPA request for at least 24 months, including any assigned reference number, the request date and nature of the request, the manner in which the request was made, the date and nature of our response, and the basis for any full or partial denial.

B. Verification of Person Making A Request.

We need to be reasonably sure that the person making the request about your PI is you, or a representative authorized to make a request on your behalf. We cannot comply with your request if we cannot verify your identity or your authority to make a request for another person. Accordingly, before we can provide you with any substantive response, we must ask for information such as your full name, mailing address, account number, or the last four digits of your social security number, to attempt to verify your identity and locate your records, if any.  Your request must also contain sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to your request.

To the extent possible, we will not ask you for new information to verify your identity, but instead will request information that we can cross-check against existing records. If we are unable to verify your request without new information, we will delete the new information as soon as practical after processing your CCPA request, except as may be required to comply with the CCPA’s record retention requirements.

We will never require you to create an account with us in order to verify your request, but if you already have an account we may use that information to assist with verification. We will only use information you provide to us during the verification process to try to verify your identity or your authority to make the request for another person.

Requests to access the specific pieces of information we may hold, and not just a list of the categories of information, require heightened verification procedures, and we will require you to submit a written declaration under penalty of perjury stating that you are the consumer whose PI is the subject of the request. In addition, certain pieces of information, such as a social security number, driver’s license number, government-issued identification number or financial account numbers, account passwords or account security questions and answers, will not be disclosed in response to a CCPA request.

If you wish to authorize someone else to act on your behalf in connection with your CCPA rights, we must receive proof that this person is authorized to do so. Proof can be provided by a consumer verifying his/her own identity directly with us and then providing written authority for a designated person to act on the consumer’s behalf, or through receipt of a power of attorney or other legal documentation of authority, or proof of registration with the California Secretary of State as a designated representative of another consumer. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of a minor child, which requires that you submit proof of your status as a parent or legal guardian.

C. How and When Will We Respond?

Within 10 business days of receipt of your request, we will provide confirmation of your request and an associated reference number.  This may be provided by letter, email, or at the conclusion of a web form submission or phone call during which you submit a request.

If you submit a Request to Delete, we may require you to re-confirm your choice to delete the information after verifying your request, but prior to any actual deletion that may be required.

The Company strives to provide a response within 45 days of receiving your request. If we need additional time, or cannot verify your request, we will let you know.

We will send our response to your request by U.S. mail or email, at your option. Any information we provide will cover only the 12-month period preceding receipt of your request.

If we cannot respond to or comply with your Request to Know or Request to Delete, or we otherwise deny your request, we will explain our reasoning and decision in our response. We may, for example, deny a CCPA request if: (1) the request cannot be acted upon because the personal information that was collected and is maintained is solely in our role as a Service Provider, as that term is defined in the CCPA, (2) we cannot verify your identity, (3) we need to retain the information you seek to have deleted in order to complete the transaction for which it was collected, or (4) the information we maintain for you is exempt from the CCPA, such as information collected, processed, sold or disclosed pursuant to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).

We do not charge a fee to process your request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded, and we have informed you in writing of the reasoning behind a charge and its estimated cost. We will provide a cost estimate before completing your request if we determine that a charge is warranted.

D. Disclosure of Company’s Service Provider Status

Company is a “Service Provider” of its clients, as that term is defined in the CCPA. Any PI that Company collects, maintains or processes is at the direction of and/or within the scope of Company’s role as a Service Provider and in order to fulfill our contractual responsibilities for the business purpose established in our client contracts. We do not collect or use your PI for our own purposes or any commercial purpose that falls outside the scope of our client contracts. We do not share or disclose PI for any reason that falls outside the scope of our contractual business purpose.

When a Service Provider receives a request to know or a request to delete from a consumer, it shall either act on behalf of the business for which it serves as a Service Provider in responding to the request or inform the consumer that the request cannot be acted upon because the request has been sent to a Service Provider. Thus, Company may respond to your request to know or request to delete by explaining that Company has collected, maintained, or processed your PI solely in Company’s role as a Service Provider of Company’s client and, if feasible, we will provide you with contact information to submit a CCPA request to that client and/or forward the request to know or requests to delete to the appropriate client.

As a Service Provider, the Company may receive instructions from our clients, some of which are businesses subject to the CCPA, to delete your Personal Information. The Company will abide by its contractual obligations with its Clients and will comply with the obligations set forth in the CCPA for service providers and requests from consumers to delete Personal Information.
