If you withdraw the permission to process your personal information that you have previously granted us, and we have no other legitimate grounds to process it further, we will permanently delete your personal information. On the other hand, in the event of your unsubscription from marketing communications, we will still keep your email address in our database to make sure we do not send you further marketing communications.

You can file a request to get an insight into what personal information about you we have gathered over the past twelve months and an insight into how we collect, use, and store it. Once we verify your identity and your request, we share the following information with you:

Deletion Request Rights

Any California resident has the right to request to erase his/her personal information that has been collected during the interactions with our website. Once we verify your identity and your request, we and the third parties we partner with will erase all personal information about you. However, certain exceptions may be applied, especially when this information is crucial for us or the third parties we partner with and can be used for the following purposes:

  • to render a service that you have requested or to perform our contract with you
  • to improve cyber security and defend against malware attacks
  • to keep our website well-maintained, to resolve technical errors that may affect key features and functionality of the website
  • to use the right to freedom of speech and to ensure that this right can be exercised by all our users and visitors in full
  • to ensure that the rights provided to our users and visitors by law can be used in full
  • to comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.)
  • to conduct or complete a research you previously expressed your consent to participate in when erasing of your personal information may have a negative impact on the results of the research that complies with all applicable laws
  • to use your personal information for internal purposes that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with our website
  • to fulfill a legal or regulatory obligation
  • to use your personal information for other internal and lawful purposes that are compatible with the situation in which you provided it.

Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To use the aforementioned rights, you can file a verifiable request via our Contact Us form twice within a 12-month period. Your request is considered verifiable if you provide enough information to verify your identity and that the personal information you request access to is linked to you. Otherwise, we won’t be able to provide you with any information you may request. To verify your identity, we only rely on personal information you submit along with your request. Moreover, make sure to clearly describe your request to remove ambiguity. A request must be submitted by you or any other person whom you granted legal authority to act on your behalf and who is registered with the California Secretary of State. A parent can submit a request on behalf of a minor child.

Response Timing and Format

Once we receive your verifiable request, we will respond to it within forty-five days. Should it require more time (up to ninety days) to process your request, we will notify you and provide you with the reason for this. Our written response will contain disclosures that took place within twelve months preceding the receipt of your verifiable request. You can choose between two options of how you would like our written response to be delivered: by mail or electronically.

If there are reasons that won’t allow us to fulfill your request, we will inform you about them. Your data portability request shall be fulfilled in a useable format to ensure fast and easy transmission of the information from one entity to another.

Your verifiable requests are fulfilled free of charge unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. In such case we will inform you of a reason for charging a fee and will provide you with a cost estimate prior processing your verifiable request.

Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights

California residents who are 16 years of age or older can exercise their right to opt-out under which they can also request that we don’t sell their personal information. We do not sell the personal information of California residents who are under 16 years old, unless we get affirmative authorization from a California resident who is from 13 to 16 years old or from the parent or guardian in case a California resident is under 13 years old.

You can withdraw your consent at any time. You can submit your request via our Contact Us form. Once opted-out, personal information sales should be reauthorized by you once in twelve months. If you decide to opt back in, please submit your request via our Contact Us form. To opt you back in, we will use the information you provided in your opt-out request.

Non-Discrimination

We guarantee that your CCPA rights are exercised without discrimination. Unless mentioned otherwise in the CCPA, we promise not to:

  • refuse to perform our contract with you or render services/goods
  • charge different prices for the same goods, grant different discounts, impose penalties
  • provide you with a different level or quality of goods or services
  • imply or make you think that you may be provided with a different level or quality of goods or services or charged different prices for the same goods and granted different discounts

Our website may grant you bonuses or other financial incentives that comply with the CCPA and that consequently may result in different prices, rates, or quality levels and relate to the value of your personal information. Moreover, in such case we will inform you about the terms via email or on the website. To use an incentive, you must express your clear consent that can be withdrawn at any time.

According to California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83), California residents that use our website can request information about our disclosures of personal information to third parties we partner with for their direct marketing purposes. The request can be submitted via our Contact Us form.
