The laws in the U.S. and these countries regarding personal information may be different than the laws of your state or country.
- Your Rights to Request Access to and Deletion of your Personal Information
Under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), California consumers (”Consumers”), subject to certain exceptions, have the right to request access, correction and deletion of your Personal Information (“PI”), as these terms are defined in the CCPA, collected, used, transferred or processed by the Company.
Consumers can, subject to proper validation:
- Request confirmation as to whether the Company has PI relating to you;
- Review the accuracy of your PI and, where appropriate or legally required, request to have it corrected, completed or amended;
- Request access to your PI in a form permissible under applicable laws and regulations; and,
- Request deletion of your PI.
You can make such a request by calling Customer Service at (800)789-4455 or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If required by law, we will disclose and deliver the required information to you free of charge within 45 days of receiving a verifiable request (with an additional extension of 45 days if reasonably necessary). You may request this information free of charge up to two (2) times in a 12-month period.
- Do Not Sell My Personal Information
Under the CCPA, Consumers also have the right to request that their information not be sold for value. This right may be referred to as the right to opt-out. Currently we do not knowingly sell or disclose information of Consumers to third parties for monetary or in-kind compensation. If we engage in such activities in the future, we will provide updated information via this Privacy Notice and provide instructions to submit a request that we do not sell your personal information.
In no case, however, will we sell personal information if we have actual knowledge that the information belongs to an individual under the age of 16 years without first obtaining appropriate parental consent.
- Updating Your Information
If you have an account with us, you can update your information or adjust your contact and marketing preferences by logging in to your online account. You may also contact your account representative or financial advisor to update information related to the accounts they manage.
- Biometric Information
We may collect information from you about your physiological, biological or behavioral characteristics (e.g., voiceprints; video; scans of face geometry) to create biometric identifiers, which we may use to identify and authenticate you, including to detect, investigate, and prevent activities that may violate our policies or be fraudulent or illegal, and to administer your account and maintain account-related records. We will obtain your consent before your information is used to create a biometric identifier. We may use third-party service providers or disclose information as required by law or as otherwise specified in this Privacy Notice. However, we will not disclose your biometric identifiers to any third parties for their own use. We will protect your biometric information with the same security standards that we use to protect your highly sensitive Personal Information. We will retain your biometric information for as long as necessary for the purposes identified above. By using our Sites or locations, you have consented, or as required by law, to our use of that Personal Information.
Nevada law gives Nevada consumers the right to request that a company not sell their personal information. This right applies even if their personal information is not currently being sold. If you are a Nevada consumer and wish to exercise this right, please submit your request by calling Customer Service at (800)789-4455 or emailing us at email@example.com.
