Access and Data Portability 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 twelve (12) months. You may make such request for access or data portability twice within twelve (12) month period. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose the following to you: (i) the categories of personal information we collected about you; (ii) the categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you; (iii) the business purpose for collecting (or selling, if applicable) the personal information; (iv) the categories of third parties with whom we share such personal information; and (v) the specific information we collected about you.
Request for Information
Pursuant to Section 1798.83 of the California Civil Code (California’s “Shine the Light” law), residents of California have the right to request from a business, with whom the California resident has an established business relationship, certain information with respect to the types of personal information the business shares with third-parties for such third-parties’ direct marketing purposes and the identities of the third-parties with whom the business has shared such information during the immediately preceding twelve (12) month period.
Pursuant to the CCPA, you have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete and will direct our service providers to delete your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. Keep in mind, we may deny your request if it is necessary for us or our service providers to: (i) 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, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, or otherwise perform services pursuant to our contract with you; (ii) detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities; (iii) debug our website and/or identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality; (iv) exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law; (v) comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.); (vi) engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent; (vii) enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us; (viii) make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it; or (xi) comply with a legal obligation.
Opt-out and Opt-in Rights for Sale of Personal Information
In the past twelve (12) months we have not sold personal information to a third-party for monetary or other valuable consideration. If you are sixteen (16) years of age or older, you have the right to direct us not to sell your personal information at any time by contacting us at email@example.com or by sending a request in writing to:
125 South Wacker Drive, #2500
Chicago, IL 60606
In the event you make the foregoing request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months thereafter to request that you opt-in to the sale of personal information (should we change our practices in the future and desire to do so). Please note, you do not need to create an account with us or engage us to provide services to exercise your opt-out rights. We will only use the personal information and other data in the opt-out request to review and comply with the request.
Verification on Consumer Request and Timeline
It is imperative that we verify the consumer request and so you must provide information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected the personal information or an authorized representative. If you make a request on behalf of another individual, we will need to verify that you have the authority to do so. You must also describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate and respond to such request. 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. We will not honor your request if an exception to the law applies.
We will try and respond to requests within forty-five (45) days after our receipt of such verifiable request (or within such other time as required by applicable law). If we need additional time, we will notify you in writing and inform you of the reason for the extension of time. For the avoidance of doubt, any such requests for personal information will cover the twelve (12) month period immediately preceding the date of such verifiable request. We will provide such information in a commonly used format. We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under the CCPA. For more information about requests, please see the “Who might we share your information with?” section of the Privacy Notice.
