Your Rights and Choices
The CPRA, as amended by the CPRA, provides consumers (California residents and households) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA and CPRA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
Right to Know and Data Portability
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information and sensitive personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive your request and confirm your identity, we will disclose to you:
Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal and/or sensitive personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive your request and confirm your identity, we will delete or deidentify (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal and/or sensitive personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
Right to correct inaccurate personal information

Right to restrict sensitive personal information processing
You have the right to restrict how we use and disclose your sensitive personal information. Please note, however, that this restriction right does not apply to sensitive personal information that we collected or processed without the purpose of inferring characteristics about you.
Once we receive your request and confirm your identity (see Exercising Your Rights to Know, Delete, Share, Opt-Out, Restrict Processing), we will review your request to see if an exception allowing us to process the information applies. We may deny your request if processing the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
Exercising Your Rights to Know, Delete, Correct, Opt-Out from, Restrict, and your Data Portability Right
To exercise your rights to know, delete, correct, opt-out from, or restrict processing described above, please submit a request to us by either:
Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a request related to your personal information. You may also make a request on behalf of your child under 18 years of age.
You may only make a request to know, delete, correct, opt out from, restrict processing, or for data portability twice within a 12-month period. The request must:
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal and/or sensitive personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.
Making a request does not require you to create an account with us.
We will only use personal and/or sensitive personal information provided in a request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
For instructions on exercising your sale opt-out or opt-in rights, see Personal Information Sales or Sharing Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights.
Response Timing and Format
We will confirm receipt of your request within ten (10) business days. If you do not receive confirmation within the 10-day timeframe, please contact us using the contact information under Exercising Your Rights to Know, Delete, Correct, Opt-Out from, Restrict, and your Data Portability Right.

If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your 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 and/or sensitive personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your 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.
Personal Information Sales or Sharing Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights
If you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information or share your sensitive personal information for cross-context behavioral advertising purposes at any time (the “right to opt-out”). We do not sell or share for cross-context behavioral advertising purposes the personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “right to opt-in”) from either the consumer who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age. Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time.
To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us by visiting the following Internet Web page link: https://donotsellorshare.marquiswhoswho.com/
Note that although we will not sell or share your personal and/or sensitive personal information after you click that button, we will continue to share some personal and/or sensitive personal information with our partners (who will function as our service providers in such instance) to help us perform advertising-related functions such as, but not limited to, measuring the effectiveness of our ads, managing how many times you may see an ad, reporting on the performance of our ads, ensuring services are working correctly and securely, providing aggregate statistics and analytics, improving when and where you may see ads and/or reducing ad fraud.
Additionally, although clicking the “Do Not Share or Sell My Info” link will opt you out of the sharing or sale of your personal and sensitive personal information for advertising purposes, it will not opt you out of the use of previously collected, shared and sold personal information (except for personal information shared or sold within 90 days prior to your exercising your right to opt out) or all interest-based advertising. If you would like more information about how to opt out of interest-based advertising in desktop and mobile browsers on a particular device, please visit http://optout.aboutads.info/#/ and http://optout.networkadvertising.org/#. t.
Sensitive Personal Information Use Limitation
If you are age 16 or older, you have the right to direct us to limit the use of not sell your sensitive personal information at any time (the “right to opt-out”). We do not use the sensitive personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years old[, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “right to opt-in”) from either the consumer who is between 13 and 15 years old, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years old]. Consumers who opt-in to the use of their sensitive personal information may opt-out of future use at any time.
To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us by visiting the following Internet Web page link: https://limituse.marquiswhoswho.com/
Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales or the sharing of your sensitive personal information for cross-context behavioral advertising purposes. However, you may change your mind and opt back in to personal information sales or to the sharing of your sensitive personal information for cross-context behavioral advertising purposes at any time by clearing cookies from your browser or emailing email@example.com.
You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your opt-out rights. We will only use personal information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA or CPRA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA or CPRA (as applicable), we will not:
However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA and/or CPRA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your Personal Information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
