Additional Information for California Residents
The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) provides that California residents may have certain additional rights regarding their Personal Information. For purposes of this section, Personal Information has the meaning given in the CCPA.
To exercise these rights, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include (i) a complete description of your request, including the specific right(s) you wish to exercise and (ii) sufficient information about you so we can confirm that your request is a verifiable customer request, including at a minimum, your name, and email address. Once we have received your verifiable consumer request, we endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period. If we deny your request, we will provide reasons for the denial.
You may designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf. In order for us to process a request from your authorized agent, we must (i) confirm that the agent is a natural person or business entity registered with the Secretary of State that you have authorized to act on your behalf, (ii) receive from you a copy of the written authorization that provides the authorized agent to act on your behalf, and (iii) verify your identity by asking you to provide us sufficient information in order to do so. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period.
Access and Data Portability Rights
You rights include the right to ask for the following information collected about you over the prior 12 months:
- Categories of and specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you.
- Categories of sources from which we collect Personal Information.
- Purposes for collecting, using, or selling Personal Information.
- Categories of third parties with which we share Personal Information.
- Categories of personal information disclosed about you for a business purpose.
- Categories of personal information sold about you and the categories of third parties to which the Personal Information was sold.
You also have the right to request that we delete Personal Information about you that we have collected, subject to certain exceptions. Please review the Section 8 for more information about your ability to access, edit, or delete personal information through your account settings.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.
Categories of Personal Information Collected
The below describes the category of Personal Information we collect by reference to the statutory categories specified by the CCPA:
We will not collect additional categories of personal information or use the personal information we collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing you notice.
Use of Personal Information
Under the CCPA, a “sale” means providing to a third-party Personal Information for valuable consideration. At this time, we don’t believe any of our data practices in the last 12 months constitute a “sale”.
Below is a list of categories of Personal Information that we have shared or disclosed to third parties for a business purpose:
The criteria used to determine the length of time Rising Wines Collective will retain your Personal Information with regard to the categories listed above is in Section 2 of this Privacy Notice.
We may further disclose each category of Personal Information to our affiliates, to our professional advisors, in connection with our compliance and protection activities, and in connection with business transfers as described above in this Policy.
Additionally, we may have programs, such as sweepstakes, contests, or other similar promotional campaigns (collectively, the “Programs”). When you sign up for one of these Programs, we typically ask you to provide your name and contact information (such as email address and/or telephone number). Because our Programs involve the collection of Personal Information, they might be interpreted as a “financial incentive” program under California law. The value of your Personal Information to us is related to the value of the free or discounted products or services or other benefits that you obtain or that are provided as part of the applicable Program. This value is based on the expense related to offering those products, services, and benefits to Program participants. You may withdraw from participating in a Program at any time by contacting us using the designated method set forth in the applicable Program rules. Visit the terms and conditions page of each Program to view full details, including how to join. Participation requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time by contacting us.
Additional information about the categories of Personal Information collected and the categories of sources from which Personal Information is collected is in Section 1. The purpose for collecting the Personal Information listed above is in Section 2 of this Policy. More information about the third parties with which we may share the Personal Information listed above can be found in Section 3.
California Shine the Light Law
If you are a California resident and a customer, you have the right to request information from us once per calendar year regarding the Personal Information we share with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. To request this information, please send an email to email@example.com with ‘Request for California Shine the Light Privacy Information’ in the subject line and the body of your message. We will provide the requested information via an email response in a standardized format, and the information will not be specific to you individually.
