Note that under the CCPA, a business does not "sell" personal information when a consumer uses or directs the business to intentionally disclose personal information or uses the business to intentionally interact with a third party, provided the third party does not also sell the personal information, unless that disclosure would be consistent with the provisions of this title. An intentional interaction occurs when the consumer intends to interact with the third party, via one or more deliberate interactions.
Your Rights and Choices
The CCPA provides consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information if they are California residents. The following is an overview of these rights and an explanation of how to exercise them.
You will need to prove your identity to us. If you have no password-protected account with us, you will need to provide us with at least 2 data points which we already maintain about you, and possibly other information and a signed declaration under penalty of perjury if the information maintained about you is of a sensitive nature. In some cases, we might not be able to successfully verify your information and in such a case, we will notify you as to why we cannot provide it. Note that the information you provide in your request will only be used to verify the request and your identity.
We do not offer financial incentives to consumers to induce their agreement for us to sell their personal information. Rather, if you do not agree, we might not be allowed to provide your information to third parties who have the quotes, services or other information you have requested. Note that under the CCPA, the "sale" of information does not include the disclosure of information at the consumer’s request.
