With respect to Personal Information collected on and after January 1, 2022, and to the extent expressly required by applicable regulation, you may request that such disclosures cover a period beyond the 12 months referenced above, provided doing so would not require a disproportionate effort by us.
Right to Delete. You have the right to request that we delete Personal Information we collected or maintain about you, subject to certain exceptions. Upon receipt of a verifiable request, we will delete and direct any service providers, contractors and third parties to whom we disclosed your Personal Information, to delete your Personal Information.
We are not required to comply with deletion requests if we, or our service providers, contractors, or third parties need the subject information in order to:
- Complete the transaction for which the Personal Information was collected, provide a good or service requested by you, or reasonably anticipated by you within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform a contract between the Company and you.

- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Otherwise use your Personal Information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information.

Employees, applicants, and independent contractors have the right not to be retaliated against for exercising any of their rights under the CCPA.
Submitting Consumer Rights Requests. To submit a California consumer rights request, please contact us by calling 888-888-7195 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Verifiable Requests. We reserve the right to only respond to verifiable consumer requests to Know, Delete, or Correct. A verifiable consumer request is one made by any individual who is:
- the consumer who is the subject of the request,
- a consumer on behalf of the consumer’s minor child, or
- the authorized agent of the consumer.
To verify your identity, we may ask you to verify Personal Information we already have on file for you. If we cannot verify your identity from the information we have on file, we may request additional information which we will only use to verify your identity, and for security or fraud-prevention purposes. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. Additionally, you will need to describe your request with sufficient detail to allow us to review, understand, assess, and respond.
Authorized Agents. You may authorize a natural person or a business (the Agent) to submit a request on your behalf. The Agent must provide signed permission to submit the request, and you must either (i) verify your own identity with the business or (ii) directly confirm with us that you provide permission to the Agent. These steps are not required when you have provided the authorized agent with power of attorney pursuant to Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465. We reserve the right to deny requests from persons or businesses claiming to be authorized agents that do not submit sufficient proof of their authorization.
We may not be able to respond to your request or provide you with Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Personal Information relates to you.
Our response. We will endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) calendar days of receipt, but we may require an extension of up to forty-five (45) additional calendar days to respond and we will notify you of the need for the extension.
We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the receipt of your verifiable consumer request. With respect to Personal Information collected on and after January 1, 2022, and to the extent expressly permitted by applicable regulation, you may request that such disclosures cover a period beyond the 12 months referenced above, provided doing so would not be impossible or require a disproportionate effort by us. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. To the extent permitted by the CCPA, we will respond to no more than two requests during any 12-month period.
Fees. We reserve the right to charge a fee to process or respond to your request if it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that a request warrants a fee, we will attempt to notify you as to why we made that decision and provide a cost estimate before completing your request.
