To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

As noted above, under the CCPA, certain personal information we collect and process may be considered "sensitive personal information." The CCPA requires that we provide you with a right to limit our use or disclosure of such sensitive personal information in certain circumstances. Currently, we are not using your sensitive personal information for purposes that would require that we provide you with a right to limit.
The CCPA provides consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information, subject to applicable exemptions and limitations. Specifically, consumers may have the right to:
Below, we provide more detail on your CCPA rights and how to exercise those rights.
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose the following to you unless a limitation or exception applies:
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

You have the right to request that we correct inaccurate personal information that we maintain about you. In reviewing your request, we will take steps to determine the accuracy of the personal information that is subject to your Request to Correct, and, as permitted by law, may deny your request in certain circumstances.
Under certain circumstances, you may have the Right to Limit our use and disclosure of your sensitive personal information. As noted above, we are not using your sensitive personal information for purposes that would require that we provide you with a right to limit.
You have the right to opt-out of the "sale" or "sharing" of your personal information where we are engaging in an activity that would be considered a "sale" or "sharing" under the CCPA.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights, unless otherwise permitted by the CCPA.

To exercise the consumer rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information twice within a twelve-month period. We may deny requests from authorized agents who do not submit proof that they have been authorized by you to act on your behalf. We may also require that you directly verify your own identity with us and directly confirm with us that you provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request. Your request must:
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 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.
To exercise your right to opt-out of the "sale" or "sharing" of your personal information, email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to opt-out preference signals such as the Global Privacy Control (available here).
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), 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.
California’s "Shine the Light" law permits customers in California to request certain details about how certain types of their information are disclosed to third parties and, in some cases, affiliates, for those third parties’ and affiliates’ own direct marketing purposes. You have the right to ask us one time each year if we have disclosed personal information (as defined under the Shine the Light law) to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Please note, however, that we do not currently disclose any of your personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
We support Do Not Track ("DNT"). Do Not Track is a preference you can set in your web browser to inform websites that you do not want to be tracked. You can enable or disable DNT by visiting the Preferences or Settings page of your web browser.
We reserve the right to amend this CA Privacy Statement at our discretion and at any time.
