The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their Personal Information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains 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 (the “right to know”). Once we receive your request and confirm your identity, we will disclose to you:
We do not provide a right to know or data portability disclosure for B2B Personal Information.
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 (the “right to delete”). Once we receive your request and confirm your identity, we will determine whether any legal exception applies. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
We will delete or deidentify Personal Information not subject to one of these or other legal exceptions from our records.
We do not provide these deletion rights for B2B Personal Information.
To exercise your rights to know or delete described above, please submit a request 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. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. In order for us to assist you, we ask you to provide us with information so that we may reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or are an authorized representative of that person and describe your request with enough detail for us to understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We will ask you these or similar questions:
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.
You do not need to create an account with us to submit a request to know or delete.
We will only use Personal Information provided in the request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make it.
We will confirm receipt of your request within ten (10) business days or within timeframe allowances specified in the CCPA. If you do not receive confirmation within the 10-day timeframe, please call at us 844-343-5378 or contact us at https://n2pub.com/contact.
We endeavor to substantively respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to another 45 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
Any response we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. 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.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
We reserve the right to amend this Privacy Notice for California Consumers at our discretion and at any time. When we make substantive changes to this Privacy Notice, we will post a summary at the top of the first page of this Notice and update the Notice effective date.
We will not discriminate against You for exercising any of Your CCPA rights.
