Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by completing the Webform on our Site or calling us at 1-800-276-2878. Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf (“authorized agent”), may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. If you chose to use an authorized agent to submit a request on your behalf, you must provide the agent written permission to do so and the agent must verify their own identity directly with us. If the agent does not submit proof that they have been authorized by you to act on your behalf, we may deny the request. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. In order to process your request, you or your authorized agent will need to provide us with the following information on the Webform or by telephone:

• Your first and last name

• Your mailing address

• Your email address 

The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or 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. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.  We are not required to provide personal information to a consumer more than twice in a 12-month period.

Response Timing and Format

We will confirm receipt of a verifiable consumer request within 10 days and provide information about how we will process the request—except in instances where we have already granted or denied the request. Generally, we will respond to your request, free of charge, within 45 days of its receipt. However, if we require additional time to evaluate and fulfill your request, we will inform you of the reason and extension period (up to 90 days), in writing, within the initial 45-day period. If a disclosure of your Personal Information is provided, it will only cover a period of 12 months preceding the date we receive your verifiable consumer request. 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, specifically by electronic mail communication.  If applicable, the response we provide to you will explain the reasons we cannot fulfill your request.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is unfounded, excessive, or repetitive. If we determine that your request warrants a reasonable fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request. We are not required to provide personal information to a consumer more than twice in a 12-month period.

Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights

If you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information at any time (the “right to opt-out”). We do not sell the personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “right to opt-in”) from either the consumer who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age. Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time. To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us through the Site.

Visitors to the Site that select the link titled “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” may submit their request to opt-out on the webform.

Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales. However, you may change your mind and opt back in to personal information sales at any time by visiting our Site and sending us a message. We will only use personal information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request.

If you would like to exercise these rights, please contact us at 1-800-276-2878 or complete the Webform. Please note that we may require additional information from you in order to verify your identity and process your request.

Right to Non-Discrimination

Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
