California Privacy Rights

If you are a California resident, under certain circumstances in accordance with applicable law, you have the right to request that we disclose to you specific details about your personal information that we have collected, used, disclosed and sold over the past 12 months and/or a copy of your personal information. These details include: (1) the categories of personal information we have collected about you; (2) the categories of sources from which the personal information is collected; (3) the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information; (4) the categories of third parties with whom we share personal information; (5) the specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you. 

 

Once we receive your request, we will acknowledge it and either respond in accordance with law, ask for additional information to verify your identity, clarify the nature of your request, let you know if we need more time, let you know if we need to charge a fee (such as if requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of their repetitive character, taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or communication or taking the action requested), or we will inform you if we cannot fulfill any part of your request due to an exception under the law. If we know that your request relates to information we process as a service provider to one of our corporate clients, we will forward your request to the relevant client and cooperate with that client as needed to address your request and/or inform you that your request should be submitted directly to the business on whose behalf we process the information.

 
Requests to delete

If you are a California resident, under certain circumstances in accordance with applicable law, 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 valid verifiable request, we will delete, de-identify or aggregate your personal information and direct our service providers to do so, or we will inform you if we cannot fulfill any part of your request due to an exception under the law. If your request relates to information we process as a service provider to one of our clients, we will inform you that your request should be submitted directly to the business on whose behalf we process the information.

 
Submitting a request to know or delete

To exercise the rights described above, please submit a verifiable request to us by either:

  • Using our web form: Contact Us

  • Calling us at: 1-213-935-0986

 

The verifiable 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. Please, however, refrain from sending us sensitive personal information.

  • 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 the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

 

We will respond to your request within a reasonable time frame in accordance with applicable law. Any disclosures we provide may only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable request’s receipt, as required by law.

Non-discrimination

In accordance with applicable law, we will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your California privacy rights.
