California Consumer Privacy Act
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides consumers who are California residents with specific rights regarding their personal information effective January 1, 2020. Under California Civil Code sections 1798.83-1798.84, California residents are entitled to ask for a notice detailing categories of personal information we share with third parties or corporate affiliates of those third parties or corporate affiliates' direct marketing purposes. The notice will identify the categories of information shared and will include identification of third parties and affiliates with which it was shared, including their names and addresses. California residents may email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 978-255- 2670. If a request is made via email, please include your name, street address, city, state, and zip code in the body of the email and write California Consumer Privacy Act in the subject line of the email.
Please note the following:
- Users may change their personal information by emailing or calling;
- Some Internet browsers include “Do Not Track” signals that give control over the collection and use of web browsing information. Because uniform standards for “Do Not Track” signals have not yet been adopted, we do not process or respond to such signals in users’ web browsers at this time; and
- We allow and authorize only Shopify and VeraCore to collect users’ device information and personal information on the Site.

Right to Request Deletion of Personal Information
As a California consumer, you have the right to request that we delete any or all of your Personal Information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete and direct our service providers to delete your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request to delete your personal information if retaining the personal information is necessary for us or our service providers to:

- Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 seq.)

- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us
- Comply with a legal obligation
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it
Right to Non-Discrimination if You Exercise any of Your Rights
You have the right not to be discriminated against for exercising any of your CCPA rights. We would never:
- Deny goods or services
- Charge different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or impose penalties
- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services
- Suggest you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services
How to Exercise Your Rights to Know and to Delete
To exercise your rights to know and/or to delete described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
- Call: 978-255-2670
- Email: email@example.com
Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may make a verifiable consumer request twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or your authorized representative.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with your personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
Response Timing and Format
We will confirm receipt of your verifiable consumer request within ten (10) days and provide you with information about how we will process the request, describing our verification process and when you should expect a response. We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer 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. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period immediately preceding our receipt of your verifiable request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your Personal Information that is useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer 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.
