Your California Privacy Rights and Choices
If you are a California resident, the CCPA provides you with additional rights regarding our use of your personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
(1) Right to Access Your Information
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information during the 12-month period preceding your request. Once we receive and verify your request, we will disclose to you the information that you request and we are obligated to provide under the CCPA, which may include:
- The categories of personal information we have collected about you;
- The categories of sources from which we collected your personal information;
- Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling your personal information;
- The categories of personal information we have disclosed for a business purpose or sold about you;
- The categories of third parties with whom we share or sell your personal information; and
- The specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you.
(2) Right to Request Deletion
You have the right to request that we delete some or all of the personal information that we have collected from you, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and verify your request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to whom we have furnished that information to also delete) your personal information from our (and their) records. With respect to the exceptions, we may deny your deletion request in whole or in part if retaining your personal information is necessary for us or our service providers 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;
- 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 your expectations based on your relationship with us;
- Comply with a legal obligation; or
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
(3) Right to Opt-Out
You have the right to direct us not to sell your personal information to third parties. Any personal information about you that we sell to a third party cannot be sold by that third party unless you have received explicit notice and are provided with an opportunity to opt-out of the sale of your personal information.
You (or your authorized representative) may submit your request to opt-out by using the form available on this page.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access, data portability, deletion and opt-out rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
- Using the form available on this page
- Emailing us compliance[at]yellowcakemedia.com
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.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative. This includes your or the consumer’s:
- Current Mailing Address
- Alternate Phone
- Alternate Mailing Address
- Other personal information about you maintained by us.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
Generally, we will not request additional information from you for purposes of verification. If, however, we cannot verify you identity from the information already maintained by us, we may request additional information from you, which shall only be used for the purposes of verifying you identity and seeking to exercise you rights under the CCPA, and for security or fraud-prevention purposes. We will delete any new personal information collected for the purposes of verification as soon as practical after processing your request, except as required to comply with the CCPA.
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. We may require authentication that is reasonable in light of the nature of the personal information requested and will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
Use of an Authorized Agent
If you use an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete, we may require that you provide the authorized agent written permission and require the authorized agent to verify its own identity with us.
A power of attorney to your authorized agent is an acceptable form of authorization.
We may deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by you to act on your behalf.
How we Verify your Request
When you submit a request to delete, or a request to know, we verify your request by taking the following steps:
- We may match the information you provided in your request with the personal information of the consumer already maintained by us; or
- We may use a third-party identity verification service that complies with the CCPA;
When verifying a request, we consider the following factors:
- The type, sensitivity, and value of the personal information collected and maintained about you;
- The risk of harm to you posed by any unauthorized access or deletion;
- The likelihood that fraudulent or malicious actors would seek the personal information;
- Whether the personal information to be provided by you to verify your identity is sufficiently robust to protect against fraudulent requests or being spoofed or fabricated;
- The manner in which we interact with you; and
- The technology available for verification.
When you request to know categories of personal information, we verify your identity to a reasonable degree of certainty.
When you request to delete, we verify your identity to a reasonable degree or a reasonably high degree of certainty depending on the sensitivity of the personal information and the risk of harm to you posed by unauthorized deletion.
In all cases, we verify by matching the identifying information provided with the request to the personal information of the consumer already maintained by us.
Response Timing and Format
Upon receiving a request to know or a request to delete, we will confirm receipt of the request within 15 days and provide information about how we will process the request.
We strive to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 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 will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the receipt of the verifiable consumer request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For these requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily usable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
(4) Right to Non-Discrimination
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA. For example, we will not:
- Deny you goods or services.
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
- Suggest that you will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
Please know that we may charge you a different price or rate or provide a different level or quality of goods or services, if that difference is reasonably related to the value provided to you by your personal information.
