You have the right to request certain information about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months, including the following:

- The categories of sources from which that personal information was collected.

In addition to the rights described above, the CCPA requires disclosure of the categories of personal information collected and shared with our affiliates over the past 12 months. Those categories, as described by the CCPA, consist of the following:
- Identifiers, including name, email address, IP address, and an ID or number assigned to your data.
- Other individual records such as phone number, employment history, bank account numbers, or credit or debit card information that you provide to us. This category includes personal information protected under pre-existing California law (Cal. Civ. Code 1798.80(e)), and overlaps with other categories listed here.
- Demographics, such as your age or gender, marital status, and national origin. This category includes data that may qualify as protected classifications under other California or federal laws.

Disclosures and Sales of Personal Information for Business Purpose
The CCPA contains a broad definition of what constitutes a “sale” of your personal information.
We may disclose and/or sell your personal information with the following categories of third parties:
- Service Providers
- Data Aggregators
Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights
If you are a California resident 16 years of age or older, you have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information at any time (the “right to opt-out”). We do not sell the personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “right to opt-in”) from either the consumer who is at least 13 but not yet 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age. Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time.
To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request by emailing us at email@example.com with the title “Do Not Sell My Personal Information.”
Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales. However, you may change your mind and opt back in to personal information sales at any time by emailing us at to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
If you are a California resident you have the right to request deletion of the personal information that we have collected from you, subject to limited exceptions: for example, we may retain personal information to complete a transaction with you, or we may retain information that would affect the privacy of others or interfere with legal requirements. If your deletion request is subject to an exception under the CCPA we may deny your deletion request.
To exercise the rights described above, you should send us written request via our company email or company address listed below. Please ensure that your request (1) provides sufficient information to allow us to verify that you are the person about whom we have collected personal information; and (2) provides sufficient detail to allow us to understand, evaluate, and respond to your request. We may not be obligated or able to respond to requests that do not meet these criteria.
For your security we may require you to verify your identity before we can act on your request. There may be information we will not return in response to your access request, such as information that would affect the privacy of others or interfere with legal requirements. Similarly, there may be reasons why we cannot comply with your deletion request, such as the need to keep your personal information to fulfill a legal obligation.
Our company will use commercially reasonable efforts to respond to any complete and valid request within 30 days of receipt. There is no cost to submit a valid request although our company may require a fee if your request(s) are excessive, repetitive, or unreasonable. You will not be charged a fee, and your fee-bearing request will not be processed, without our company providing you with prior written notice.
Should you choose to exercise any of your rights under the CCPA, our company will not deny you any services, charge you different rates, or provide lesser quality products and services. However, in the future our company may elect to offer different tiers of services as allowed by applicable laws (including the CCPA) which may contain differing prices, rates, or levels of quality, which may be related to the value of personal information that we receive from you. California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our App that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to email@example.com or write us at the mailing address found below.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.
Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
We will notify you via email
• Within 7 business days
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
