Deletion & Correction Request Rights
You have the right to request that we delete or correct 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 correct or delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:
1. Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
2. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
3. Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
4. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.

6. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
7. Comply with a legal obligation.
8. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
We may deny your correction request if we determine that the information that you are seeking to correct is accurate, we cannot verify your identity, or your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, Correction and Deletion Rights.
To exercise the access, data portability, correction, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by email at email@example.com
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. The verifiable consumer 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.
· 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 consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
When handling requests to correct, we may require you to provide documentation that rebuts the information that we have on file. In determining whether such documentation is necessary, we will have regard to:
(A) The nature of the personal information at issue (e.g., whether it is objective, subjective, unstructured, sensitive, etc.).
(B) The nature of the documentation upon which we consider the personal information to be accurate (e.g., whether the documentation is from a trusted source, whether the documentation is verifiable, etc.)
(C) The purpose for which we collect, maintain, or use the personal information. For example, if the personal information is essential to the functioning of our business, we may require more documentation.
(D) The impact on you. For example, if the personal information has a negative impact on you, we may require less documentation.
We may delete the contested personal information as an alternative to correcting the information if the deletion of the personal information does not negatively impact you or where you consent to the deletion.
When responding to a request to correct, we will inform you whether we have complied with your question to correct, and if we have not, we will provide the basis for such action.
Response Timing and Format
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. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. 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. 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 will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
· Deny you goods or services.
· Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
· Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
· Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
