Personal Information Requests
As a California resident, you have the right to request certain information regarding our use of your Personal Information, including the following:
- The different categories of Personal Information we have collected about you during the last 12 months and the categories of sources from which that information was collected;
- The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling your Personal Information;
- The categories of third parties with whom we shared your Personal Information;
- Whether we have disclosed or sold your Personal Information to a third party for a business or commercial purpose during the last 12 months and the categories of the Personal Information disclosed or sold; and
- The specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you.
To submit a request for Personal Information, you must submit a Verifiable Consumer Request following the procedures described in the Verifiable Consumer Request Procedures section below. You may submit a Personal Information request up to twice during a 12-month period.
Selling or sharing of personal information
As a California resident, you have the right to request that we not sell your Personal Information. Please note that we do not, and will not, sell your Personal Information to third parties.
Right to request deletion of personal information
As a California resident, you have a limited right to request that we and all of our service providers delete your Personal Information. You must do so by submitting a Verifiable Consumer Request to delete your Personal Information following the procedures described in the Verifiable Consumer Request Procedures section below. Upon receipt and confirmation of the Verifiable Consumer Request, we will delete your Personal Information from our systems and direct our service providers to do the same at no cost to you. There are exceptions to this right. We may retain your Personal Information for any of the following reasons:
- To provide goods or services to you as a consumer;
- To detect and resolve issues related to security or functionality;
- To comply with legal obligations;
- To conduct public interest research;
- In the exercise of free speech or the free speech of others; and
- For use in internal work processes and purposes that you would reasonably expect based on your relationship with us.
If we determine that we will not delete your Personal Information when you request us to do so, we will inform you and tell you why we are not deleting it.
We will not discriminate against you for the exercise of your rights under the CCPA. We will not deny you goods or services, charge a different rate or price to you, or supply a different level or quality of goods to you. We may, however, offer different prices, levels of service or quality to those who share their Personal Information based on the value of the Personal Information provided as permitted by law. To the extent certain of our services require your Personal Information and you choose not to provide the necessary Personal Information, you may not be able to use those services.
Personal information of minors
Minors may only use our site with the involvement of a parent or guardian. Our site is not intended for or designed to attract children under the age of 13, and we will not knowingly solicit or collect Personal Information from children we actually know are under 13. For children between the ages of 13 and 16, we may collect and maintain Personal Information in the same manner we do for adults. Just as with other users of our site, we do not, and will not, sell Personal Information of children between the ages of 13 and 16.
Verifiable consumer request procedures
In order to submit a Verifiable Consumer Request, please submit your name, customer or account email address, and a description of your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it, via email at email@example.com, via phone at 615-601-1655, or via mail at: 660 Bakers Bridge Ave #100, Franklin, TN 37067.
If you maintain an online account with us, we may verify your identity for a request through the normal account authentication process, meaning you will need to sign on with your username and password.
You may assign a designated agent to make a request on your behalf. If you wish to do so, you will need to appoint the designated agent in writing and we may require a copy of that writing before allowing any request submitted by your designated agent.
If we are unable to confirm your identity or authority to make the request, we may contact you for additional information or deny your request. We will inform you if we cannot verify your identity or authority. We will only use Personal Information provided in a Verifiable Consumer Request to verify your identity or authority to make the request.
We will respond to the 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. The information may be delivered through your account, or, if you do not maintain an account with us, by mail or electronically at your option, and if provided electronically, the information will be in a portable and, to the extent technically feasible, readily useable format that allows you to transmit the information to another entity without hindrance.
We are not required to respond to requests to provide Personal Information to you more than twice in any 12-month period. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the receipt of the request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your 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.
In responding to your request, we are not permitted to disclose or provide you with your Social Security Number, Driver’s License Number, or other government issued identification number, financial account number, any health insurance or medical identification number, an account password, or security questions and answers.
Do not track
We currently do not respond to any Do Not Track signals or similar signals.
