For Users Outside of the United States Only
Data Subject Rights
Depending on your residency, you may have certain data subject rights. These rights vary by state and country, but they may include the right to: (i) request additional disclosures about the Personal Information we collect, use, and disclose, i.e., a “Request to Know (Categories of Information)”; (ii) obtain a copy of Personal Information, i.e., a “Request to Know (Specific Pieces of Information),” sometimes called the Right to Access; (iii) request deletion of Personal Information, i.e., a “Request to Delete Information,” sometimes called the Right to Be Forgotten; (iii) opt out of the sale of Personal Information if we were to sell Personal Information, i.e., a “Request to Opt Out.” We do not sell your information, so you are already opted-out of such sales. California law prohibits discrimination against you for exercising any of these rights, for example by charging a different price or denying goods or services, and we will not discriminate against you for exercising any of these rights. However, we may charge a different price or rate or provide a different level or quality of goods or services when that difference is reasonably related to the value provided to us by the data. Additionally, in some circumstances, such as if you request that we delete your data, we may not be able to complete a request for a good or service because we will not have the required information to deliver it.
How to Exercise Data Subject Rights
If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please email us at: [email protected] with the phrase “Data Subject Rights” in the subject line. You may also call us toll-free at: 866 447-4737. We will review your requests and respond accordingly. The rights described herein are not absolute and we reserve all of our rights available to us at law in this regard. Additionally, if we retain your Personal Information only in de-identified form, we will not attempt to re-identify your data in response to a Data Subject Rights request.
If you make a request related to Personal Information about you, we will need to verify your identity. To do so, we will request that you match specific pieces of information you have provided us previously, as well as, in some instances, depending on the sensitivity of the data, provide a signed declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request. If it is necessary to collect additional information from you, we will use the information only for verification purposes and will delete it as soon as practicable after complying the request. For requests related to particularly sensitive information, we may require additional proof of identification.
If you make a Data Subject Rights request through an authorized agent, we will require written proof that the agent is authorized to act on your behalf.
We will process your request within the time provided by applicable law.
