Your California Privacy Rights
Right to Know
California Consumers have the right to submit a verifiable request for specific pieces of their personal information and for information about Company’s collection, use, and disclose of their personal information. Please note that the CPRA’s right to obtain “specific pieces” does not grant a right to the whole of any document that contains personal information, but only to copies of items of personal information. Moreover, California residents generally just have a right to know categories, for example, categories of third parties to which personal information is disclosed, but not the individual third parties.
Right to Delete
- California Consumers have the right to submit a verifiable request for deletion of their Personal Information that Company has collected from the Consumer.
Right to Correct
- California Consumers have the right to submit a verifiable request for the correction of inaccurate personal information maintained by Company, taking into account the nature of the personal information and the purposes of processing the personal information.
Note on Sensitive Personal Information
Company does not infer characteristics from sensitive personal information. Company only uses sensitive personal information as necessary to perform the services or provide the goods the average person would reasonably expect when requesting those goods or services, to ensure security and integrity, short term transient use, to maintain the quality of our products and services, or for other purposes permitted by the California Privacy Rights Act and implementing regulations (“CPRA“) without the right to opt out.
How to Exercise Your Rights
Company will respond to requests in accordance with applicable law if it can verify the identity of the individual submitting the request. California Consumers can exercise their rights in the following ways:
- Complete the online request form available on our website and send it to the email address: email@example.com OR send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your request
- Contact us by telephone at the Human Resources toll free number 800-825-8088
- At any of our PEAK Branches. You may complete and submit a form in person.
Requests by Authorized Agents
An authorized agent can make a request under the CPRA on the California Consumer’s behalf by submitting a request to know or a request to delete according to the instructions set forth in Section “How to Exercise Your Rights” above. When an authorized agent submits a request to know or a request to delete on the consumer’s behalf, the business may require the consumer to, among other things: (a) provide the authorized agent with a written and signed authorization;(b) verify the identity directly with the us; or (c) directly confirm with us that consumer provided the agent authorization to submit the request. In the alternative, a power of attorney compliant with the California Probate Code can be provided.
How We Will Verify Your Requests
If you submit a request through an adequately secure password-protected account that you created before the date of your request, we will use the authentication mechanisms in the account to verify your identity. Otherwise, we match personal information that you provide us against personal information we maintain in our files. The more risk entailed by the request (e.g., a request for specific pieces of personal information), the more items of personal information we may request to verify your identity. If we cannot verify your identity to a sufficient level of certainty to respond to your request, we will let you know promptly and explain why we cannot verify your identity.
The Company’s Non-Discrimination Policy
California Consumers have the right not to be subject to discriminatory treatment by Company for exercising their privacy rights under the California Privacy Rights Act, and Company will not discriminate on that basis.
