HOW DO WE PROTECT THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT?
Security of Personal Data
We are committed to protecting the security of your personal data. Depending on the circumstances, we may hold your information in hard copy and/or electronic form. For each medium, we use technologies and procedures to protect personal data. We review our strategies and update as necessary to meet our business needs, changes in technology, and regulatory requirements. We take our security obligations seriously and so should you. While we are responsible for maintaining the security of this Site, you must also access and use this Site in a manner that is responsible and secure. In addition, we have implemented a series of policies, procedures, and training to address data protection, confidentiality, and security, and we update and review the appropriateness of these measures on a regular basis.
Storage and Transfer of Personal Data
We also collaborate with third parties such as cloud hosting services and suppliers located around the world to serve the needs of our business, workforce, and customers. In some cases, we may need to disclose or transfer your personal data within the Company or to third parties in areas outside of your home country. When we do so, we take steps to ensure that personal data is processed, secured, and transferred according to applicable law.
If you would like to know more about our data transfer practices, please contact us at email@example.com.
Retention of Personal Data
We retain personal data for as long as necessary to provide the services and fulfill the transactions you have requested, or for other business purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, and enforcing our agreements. We are required by law to keep some types of information for certain periods of time (e.g., statute of limitations). If your personal data is no longer necessary for the legal or business purposes for which it is processed, we will generally destroy or anonymize that information.
WHAT ARE MY RIGHTS REGARDING MY PERSONAL DATA?
We respect your right to access and control your personal data. You have choices about the data we collect. When you are asked to provide personal data that is not necessary for the purposes of providing you with our Products and Services, you may decline. However, if you choose not to provide data that is necessary to provide a Service, you may not have access to certain features, Sites, Products, or Services.
Access to personal data: In some jurisdictions, you have the right to request access to your personal data. In these cases, we will comply, subject to any relevant legal requirements and exemptions, including identity verification procedures. Before providing data to you, we will ask for proof of identity and sufficient information about your interaction with us so that we can locate any relevant data. We may also charge you a fee for providing you with a copy of your data (except where this is not permissible under local law).
Correction and deletion: In some jurisdictions, you have the right to correct or amend your personal data if it is inaccurate or requires updating. You may also have the right to request deletion of your personal data. Please note that such a request could be refused because your personal data is required to provide you with the products or services you requested, e.g., to deliver a product or send an invoice to your email address, or that it is required by the applicable law.
Portability: If you reside within the European Union, you have the right to ask for a copy of your personal data and/or ask for it to be ported to another provider of your choice.

We do “sell” your personal information as currently defined under the CCPA, meaning that we may rent, disclose, release, transfer, make available or otherwise communicate your personal information to a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration. Further, we may disclose Personal Information to third parties, such as our dealers, in such a way that may be considered a sale of Personal Information under CCPA.
How to Exercise Your Rights Under the CCPA
Under the CCPA you have the right to find out about the personal information that we have collected and how that information has been used or disclosed. You also have the right to request that we delete your personal information or opt-out of the sale of your personal information. If you wish to exercise any of the rights listed below, or if you would like additional information, please contact us at email@example.com
1. The Right to Access and Know About Personal Information Collected, Disclosed, or Sold

2. The Right to Request Deletion of Your Personal Information
Subject to certain exceptions, you have the right to request that we delete any of all of your personal information that we collected from you and retained over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. You may request that only a portion of your information be deleted.
We may deny all or part of your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:
- Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated based on our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our agreement with you

3. The Right to Opt-Out of the Sale of Your Personal Information
The CCPA provides you with the right to opt out and stop businesses from selling your personal information. This right applies to all California consumers ages 16 or older and may be exercised at any time.
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”). Our websites and products are not intended for minors. 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 at least 13 but not yet 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.
How to exercise this right:
- By contacting Company at the toll-free number: 888-281-6816; or
- By sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, providing details of your request
Some browsers have signals that may be characterized as do not track signals, but we do not understand them to operate in that manner or to represent a “do not sell” request by you; accordingly, currently we do not view these signals as a do not sell request. We understand that various parties are developing do not sell signals and we may recognize certain such signals if we conclude such a program is appropriate.
We do sell the personal information of Consumers. All consumers, regardless of age, may opt out of our promotional emails by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link on each of our brand emails.
4. The Right to Non-Discrimination
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights, and will not engage in the following behaviors:
- Denying you goods or services
- Charging you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties
- Providing you a different level or quality of goods or services
- Suggesting that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services
When you exercise these rights and submit a request to us, we will verify your identity by asking for information about your relationship with us, such as email address on file.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.
You may authorize a natural person or a business entity registered with the California Secretary of State to act on your behalf to make a request to know or to delete your personal information.
To do so, you must (i) verify your identity to us and provide that authorized agent written permission to make such a request or (ii) provide the authorized agent with power of attorney pursuant to the California Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465.
The authorized agent must include those authorizations in the verifiable consumer request.
Notice of Financial Incentive2
We will not discriminate against you in a manner prohibited by the CCPA because you exercise your CCPA rights. However, we may charge a different price or rate, or offer a different level or quality of goods or services, to the extent that doing so is reasonably related to the value of the applicable data. In addition, we may offer you financial incentives for the collection, Sale, retention, and use of your personal information as permitted by the CCPA; such offers may result in reasonably different prices, rates, or quality levels. The material aspects of any financial incentive will be explained and described in its program terms.
