Exercising Your Rights Under the CCPA

Opting Out of the Selling or Sharing of Personal Information

To opt-out of the sharing of your personal information, you may designate your preferences online (Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information) or call us toll-free at (866) 952-9523.

Submitting a Verifiable Request to Know, Correct or Delete Personal Information

Only you (or an authorized agent) may make a consumer request to know, correct or delete your personal information. To make a request, please do so by either:

Once you submit a request, we will verify your identity. If you have a password-protected account with us, we may verify your identity through our existing authentication practices for your account.  If you do not have an account with us, we may ask you to provide certain information, such as your first and last name, date of birth, address and social security number to verify your identity.  If you submit a request to know specific pieces of personal information, delete certain information or correct certain information, in addition to verifying your identity with information we have on file, you also may be required to submit a signed declaration under penalty of perjury stating that the requestor is the consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request. Generally, if we are unable to verify your identity, we will explain why we were unable to do so and will deny your request.  However, if we are unable to respond to your request for specific pieces of information, we will evaluate your request as if it is a request to know the categories of personal information that we have collected about you.

Once we receive your verifiable consumer request, we will confirm our receipt of your request within 10 business days and provide you with additional information about how we will process the request. Our goal is to respond to your request within 45 calendar days of receiving the request. However, in the event that we need more time (up to 90 calendar days) to respond to your request, we will notify you and explain why we will need more time to respond.

Our response generally will cover the 12-month period prior to your request. For Requests to Know, we will provide disclosures of the information we collect or maintain about you on or after January 1, 2022, including beyond the 12-month period preceding the date we receive the request unless certain exceptions apply or you request a specific time period. We are only required to respond to a request for access twice within a 12-month period. If we are unable to comply with your request, we will explain why and identify any rights you may have to appeal.

We will not charge you for exercising your rights under the CCPA unless your request is excessive, repetitive or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will provide you an explanation and a cost estimate before completing your request.

Authorized Agent for Requests

You may designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf. Unless you have a power of attorney, if you would like to use an authorized agent to submit a request, you must provide the authorized agent with written and signed permission to do so and either verify your own identity directly with us or directly confirm that you provided the authorized agent with permission to submit the request. We may deny a request from an authorized agent if we do not receive proof that they are authorized to act on your behalf.

Changes to Our California Privacy Statement

We are required by law to update this California Privacy Statement at least once each year. This California Privacy Statement was last updated on January 1, 2023.
