Your Rights Under CCPA
The CCPA provides California residents with certain rights regarding their Personal Information.

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 12 months. Once we have received and verified your request, we will disclose, in accordance with your request:
• The categories or specific pieces of information we collected about you.

• Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or for selling your information.
Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that we delete your Personal Information that we have collected and retained. Once we receive and verify such a request, we will delete your information from our records, unless retaining that consumer's information is necessary for us or for our service providers to:
• Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service which that consumer requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with that consumer, or otherwise perform our contract with that consumer.
• 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 or 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 (California Penal Code 1546).
