1. Consumer Rights. This section describes certain rights of Consumers under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). For information on how Consumers may contact us to exercise these rights, please see “How to Submit a Request” below.
Right to Know. A Consumer has the right to request that a business disclose what personal information it collects, uses, discloses or sells. Specifically, a Consumer may request that a business that collects personal information about the Consumer disclose to the Consumer the following:

- The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected.
- The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information.
- The categories of non-affiliated entities with whom the business shares personal information.
- The specific pieces of personal information it has collected about that Consumer.
A Consumer may request that a business that sells the Consumer’s personal information, or that discloses it for a business purpose, disclose to that Consumer:
- The categories of personal information that the business collected about the Consumer.
- The categories of personal information that the business sold about the Consumer and the categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold, by category or categories of personal information for each third party to whom the personal information was sold.
- The categories of personal information that the business disclosed about the Consumer for a business purpose.
Right to Request Deletion. A Consumer has the right to request that a business delete any personal information about the Consumer which the business has collected from the Consumer. If it is necessary for us to maintain the personal information for certain purposes, we are not required to comply with your deletion request. If we determine that we will not delete your personal information when you request us to do so, we will inform you and tell you why we are not deleting it.
Right to Opt-Out of Sale of Personal Information. We do not sell Consumers’ personal information. However, the collection of data through certain third-party cookies for our targeting advertising purposes may be considered a “sale” under the CCPA. While we do not sell Consumers’ personal information, we do use third-party cookies for targeted advertising purposes. To opt-out of having your information shared with third party digital advertising vendors for this purpose, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No Discrimination. A Consumer has the right not to be discriminated against because the Consumer exercised any of the Consumer’s rights under the CCPA.
