Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature (DNT) that signals to the websites that you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked.

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS 

 

California Consumer Privacy Act. The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) provides California residents with specific rights regarding their Personal Information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

Upon verification of your identity you may:

  • No more than twice in any 12-month period, request disclosure of the following information:

    • Categories of Personal Information we collect.

    • Categories of sources from which Personal Information is collected.

    • Categories of Personal Information sold or disclosed to third parties.

    • Categories of third parties with whom such Personal Information is sold or disclosed.

    • Business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling Personal Information.

    • Specific pieces of Personal Information we collect.

  • Request deletion of your Personal Information, subject to the exceptions provided by law.

  • Opt-out from having your Personal Information sold to third parties, if applicable. 

 

Requests can be submitted by calling our toll free number (866) 530-4343 or through our online request form.   You can also opt out of having Personal Information transmitted through third party cookies and pixels by clicking on the Do Not Sell My Info / Cookie link.

 

Please note that these rights apply only to select California consumers and exclude job applicants, employees, and business contacts.  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. 

 

The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Include your full legal name and phone number, which we will need to contact you in order to verify that 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.  In order to verify your identity, one of our representatives will call you at the phone number provided. 

 

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

  • 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.

  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.

  • Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.

  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.

  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et seq.).

  • 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.

  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.

  • Comply with a legal obligation.

  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

 

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (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 do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.

 

No Discrimination

 

The CCPA provides the right to be free from discrimination if you choose to exercise your rights under the statute, and we will not discriminate by:

  • Denying you goods or services.

  • Charging you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.

  • Providing you a different level or quality of goods or services.

  • Suggesting that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services

 

Other California Privacy Rights.  California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents who have provided personally identifiable information to us or our third-party advertisers and marketing partners, if any, to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personally identifiable information to third parties for direct marketing purposes.  Requests should be submitted via email to baldwinsonmarketing@gmail.com and should include CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS in the subject line.  We will need your first and last name, mailing address, and email address in order to process your request.  Please be aware that not all information sharing is covered by the requirements of Section 1798.83 and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response.  This request may be made no more than once per calendar year.
