IV. California Consumers’ Individual Rights

The CCPA provides California consumers with certain rights in relation to their Personal Information. This section describes your rights and explains how you can exercise them.

Right to know: Subject to certain limitations, the CCPA provides you with the right to request that we disclose more information about the categories or specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you over the last 12 months. To make such a request, please email us at [email protected]

Right to request deletion: Subject to certain limitations, the CCPA provides you with the right to request that your Personal Information is deleted. To make such a request, please email us at [email protected]. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable request, we will delete (and direct the third party advertisers who we pass your information to in order to provide the service to delete) your Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies.

Right to opt-out of marketing messages: does not send out any marketing messages to consumers but only as as service provider for selected partners. However, you should know that you can always choose to opt-out of offers, promotions and other emails of (replacement) advertisers by clicking unsubscribe in any email messages you receive.

“Do Not Sell My Personal Information”: shares your data only with a limited number of trusted partners that are indicated at the website. We only sell this data to partners so they can provide you with the requested quote. We do not sell or use your data for any other purposes. You can opt out of the “sale” of your personal data by writing us an email at [email protected].

V. How does the verification process work?

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonable verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information
  • Describe your request with a sufficient level of 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.

VI. Response 

We will aim to respond to a verifiable request within forty-five days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response by email. To begin the verification process, please email us at [email protected] and from there, we will take you through the process.
