EXERCISING YOUR CALIFORNIA ACCESS, DELETION, AND OPT-OUT RIGHTS
We may use information collected from or about you, including your Personal Information and Usage Information, to:
You have the right to request that we disclose to you what Personal Information we collect, use, disclose, and sell, including the right to request that we provide to you the specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you in the prior 12 months (“Right to Know”) and you have the right to ask us to delete the Personal Information we collect about you (“Right to Delete”), subject to exceptions set forth in the CCPA. California residents also have the right to opt-out from the sale of their Personal Information. These rights are subject to some limitations, such as when we are retaining data to comply with our own legal obligations. You will not be required to create an account with us in order to submit a request. More information on each of these rights is below.
If you are an agent submitting a request on a user’s behalf, please send an email to email@example.com with a declaration signed by the individual who is the subject of the request authorizing you to make the request on their behalf. The written permission must state your full legal name, the full legal name of the individual who is the subject of the request, and needs to be clear about the permission. Alternatively, you may submit a copy of a power of attorney under Probate Code sections 4000-4465. In either case, please also indicate in your email the nature of your request. The consumer’s identity, in addition to your own, will need to be independently verified in order for us to be able to fulfill your request. We may also ask the consumer to directly confirm with us that they provided you permission to submit a request. Please keep in mind that if we do not receive adequate proof that you are authorized to act on the consumer’s behalf, we may deny the request.
When you request access to the Personal Information we have collected or deletion of your Personal Information, we will typically provide the requested information within 45 days, and we will notify you within that time period if we need additional time to process your request. When you opt-out from the sale of your Personal Information, we will honor your request as soon as feasible, but no later than 15 days from the date we receive your request.
RIGHT TO KNOW
If you are a California resident and would like to request information about the Personal Information we have collected about you in the prior 12 months, please contact us with your request at this email address firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the following information to assist us in verifying your request: your first and last name, email address, mailing address, and telephone number (if you have provided it).You may also call us toll-free at 1.800.828.7280.
In order to have us provide specific pieces of information, we will require a signed declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the consumer whose Personal Information is the subject of the request.
If we are unable to verify that the individual submitting the request is the same individual about whom we have collected information (or someone authorized by that individual to act on their behalf), we will not be able to provide the requested information.
We will provide the requested information free of charge up to two (2) times in a 12-month period, but please note that where we receive unfounded, excessive, or repetitive requests, we may elect to decline the request. Note also that we will not be able to provide information we do not ordinarily retain in the course of our regular business practices.
RIGHT TO DELETE
The CCPA also provides a right to request that we delete personal information we have collected about you and for us to direct service providers to do the same, with certain exceptions as set forth in the CCPA. Note that you may also delete certain Personal Information you have provided to us through your online account.
If you are a California resident and would like to request that we delete your information, please contact us with your request at this email address email@example.com and provide the following information to assist us in verifying your request: your first and last name, email address, mailing address, and telephone number (if you have provided it).You may also call us toll-free at 1.800.828.7280.
To ensure that we do not delete your personal information in response to a fraudulent request, once you submit the request, we will follow up to confirm that you want your information to be deleted.
RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OF THE SALE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
The CCPA also provides a right to California residents to request to opt-out of the sale of Personal Information. We may allow third-party advertising and analytics companies to collect data from visitors to our Sites, some of which may be considered “personal information” under the CCPA, to provide us information about use of the Sites and to better serve you more relevant, personalized advertisements.
We do not sell your personal information for monetary compensation, but our online advertising practices (and certain analytics or similar activities) may potentially be considered “sales” under the CCPA under certain circumstances.
The Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) offers tools for California consumers to send requests under the CCPA to opt out of the sale of personal information by some or all of the participating companies (https://www.privacyrights.info/).
Additionally, some third-party advertising and analytics companies are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) or the DAA Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. You may want to visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp, which provides information regarding targeted advertising and the “opt-out” procedures of NAI members. You may also want to visit or http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ , which provides information regarding targeted advertising and offers an “opt-out” by participating companies in the DAA Self-Regulatory Program. (Note that these are cookie-based opt-outs. If you disable your cookies or upgrade your browser after opting out, or if you use different computers or browsers, you will need to indicate your opt-out choices across those other computers and browsers.)
You may also be able to limit the access these third-party advertising companies have to information about you when you use our Sites by installing a browser or browser extension that can enable you to block the functionality of some tracking technologies.
Please be aware that utilizing these mechanisms does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads while online.

Instant Brands does not knowingly sell Personal Information of minors younger than 16 years of age.
Right to Non-Discrimination for the Exercise of a Consumer’s Privacy Rights
