Note that the CCPA includes certain exemptions with respect to a businesses’ use or collection of personal information. Your rights under the CCPA may be limited as a result of our reliance on these exemptions.
Verifying and Responding To Your Requests
We only respond to requests that you make which are “verifiable” and for which we can reasonably verify your identity. To verify your requests, we may require authentication of you that is reasonable in light of the nature of the personal information requested.
We aim to promptly verify your requests and respond to your requests within 45 days of receipt, but may require up to a total of 90 days to respond to your requests. If we require additional time beyond the initial 45 days and that time is reasonably necessary, we will let you know within the first 45 days. We do not ordinarily charge a fee for our response to your requests. However, we may do so to the extent your request(s) are excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that charging a fee is warranted, we will let you know and will provide you with an estimate of the associated costs of responding to your request(s). If we determine that we cannot or will not take the action that you requested, we will inform you of our reasons for not taking action and any rights you may have to appeal the decision.
