(a)Request to Know: As a California resident, You have the right to request: (1) the specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about You; (2) the categories of Personal Information we have collected about You; (3) the categories of sources from which the Personal Information is collected; (4) the categories of Personal Information about You that we have sold and the categories of third parties to whom the Personal Information was sold; (5) the categories of Personal Information about You that we disclosed for a business purpose and the categories of third parties to whom the Personal Information was disclosed for a business purpose; (6) the business or commercial purpose for collecting, disclosing, or selling Personal Information; and (7) the categories of third parties with whom we share Personal Information. Our response will cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of a verifiable request.
(b)Request to Delete: As a California resident, You have a right to request the erasure/deletion of certain Personal Information collected or maintained by us. As described herein, we will delete your Personal Information from our records and direct any service providers (as defined under applicable law) to delete Your Personal Information from their records. However, we are not required to honor a deletion request if an exemption applies under the law.
(c)Submitting a Request:
(i)Submission of Instructions: You may submit a request to know or to delete by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by submitting a request via mail to Graphy Inc., Vistra (Delaware) Ltd, 3500 South Dupont Hwy, Dover, Kent, DE 19901. Regarding requests to delete, we may present you with the choice to delete select portions of Your Personal Information, but a global option to delete all Personal Information will be offered and more prominently presented.
(i)Verification Process: We are required by law to verify the identities of those who submit requests to know or to delete. To determine whether the individual making the request is the consumer about whom we have collected information, we will verify Your identity by matching the identifying information provided by You in the request to the Personal Information that we already maintain about You. As a part of this process, you will be required to provide Your name and email address, and mobile number (if the same have been voluntarily provided by You at the time of registering on the Platform or otherwise while using the Platform). We will inform you if we cannot verify Your identity. Please note-
· If we cannot verify the identity of the person making the request for specific pieces of Personal Information, we are prohibited from disclosing any specific pieces of Personal Information to the requestor. However, if denied in whole or in part for this reason, we will evaluate the request as if it is seeking the disclosure of categories of Personal Information about the consumer.
· If we cannot verify the identity of the person making a request to delete, we may deny the request. If there is no reasonable method by which we can verify the identity of the requestor to the degree of certainty required, we will state this in our response and explain why we have no reasonable method by which we can verify the identity of the requestor.
(i)Authorized Agents: Authorized agents may submit requests via the methods identified in this Policy. If You use an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete, we may require You to: (1) provide the authorized agent with signed permission to do so; (2) verify Your identity directly with us; and (3) directly confirm with us that You provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request. However, we will not require these actions if You have provided the authorized agent with power of attorney pursuant to the California Probate Code.
(i)Excessive Requests: If requests from a User are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of their repetitive character, we may either (1) charge a reasonable fee, or (2) refuse to act on the request and notify the User of the reason for refusing the request. If we charge a fee, the amount will be based upon the administrative costs of providing the information or communication or taking the action requested.
(v)CCPA Non-Discrimination: You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us due to Your exercise of the rights provided by the CCPA. We do not offer financial incentives and price or service differences, and we do not discriminate against Users/consumers for exercising their rights under the CCPA.
