  1. Right to Delete

 

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we have collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive your request and confirm your identity, we will review your request to see if an exception allowing us to retain the information applies. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to: (a) complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you; (b) help ensure security and integrity to the extent that the use of your personal information is reasonably necessary and proportionate for those purposes; (c) debug products to identify and repair errors that impact existing intended functionality; (d) exercise free speech, ensure the right of other consumers to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided by law; (e) comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et seq.); (f) enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us; (g) comply with a legal obligation; and (h) make other internal and lawful uses of your personal information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

 

We will delete or deidentify personal information not subject to one of these exceptions from our records and will direct our service providers to take similar action. We will maintain a record of your deletion request for at least 24 months or as otherwise needed to ensure that your personal information remains deleted from our records.

 

In our response to your request, we will specify the manner in which we have deleted your personal information or, if we must deny your deletion request, the basis for this denial.

 

  1. Right to Correct Inaccurate Personal Information

 

You have the right to request that we correct inaccurate personal information that we have collected from you. Once we receive your request and confirm your identity, we will review your request to see if an exception applies to your request.

 

We will correct your personal information and will direct our service providers to take similar action.

 

In our response to your request, we will specify the corrections made to your personal information or, if we must deny your correction request, the basis for this denial.

 

  1. Right to Non-Discrimination

 

You have a right not to receive discriminatory treatment for exercising your privacy rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA and CPRA, we will not: (a) deny you goods or services; (b) charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties; (c) provide you a different level or quality of goods or services; and (d) suggest that you receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods and services.
