PRIVACY NOTICE FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
Last Revised: 3/12/2020
CALIFORNIA CONSUMER PRIVACY ACT: AP & CCPA
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
Access to Specific Information
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection, disclosure, and use of your California personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you the categories of information collected about you over the past 12 months, as well as the categories of third parties to whom the California personal information has been disclosed.
Categories of California personal information may include but not be limited to: identifiers (e.g., technical, financial, government identifiers); contact information; physical characteristics or description information; internet or electronic network activity information; geolocation information; commercial information; electronic or similar information; professional or employment related information; education information; legally protected classifications; and other information that identifies or can be reasonably associated or linked with you.
Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that we delete any of your California 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 if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
Exercising Access and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by (1) calling us toll-free at 1-877-319-8840, (2) submitting a request via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or (3) submitting a request via the mail to: Aldridge Pite, LLP, Attn: Compliance Department, Fifteen Piedmont Center, 3575 Piedmont Road NE, Suite 500, Atlanta, Georgia 30305.
Only you, or your authorized agent (i.e., person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf), may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or deletion twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you
Notice Regarding Right to Opt-Out of Sale of Personal Information
Although the CCPA permits the right to opt-out of the sale of California personal information, AP does not sell personal information.
Response Timing and Format
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five calendar (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, 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 preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. 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 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 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.
As required or permitted under applicable law, please note that we may take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to information or acting on your request to exercise your rights. We may limit our response to your exercise of the above rights as permitted under applicable law. We may not discriminate against you in response to your exercise of the above rights.
OTHER CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
Because we value your privacy we have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act and thus will not distribute your personal information to outside parties without your consent or as specifically described above.
California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits users of our Website that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please write to using one of the methods described under the heading “Contact Us,” below.
If you have any questions or comments about the ways in which we collect and use your information described in this notice, your choices and rights regarding such use, or wish to exercise your rights under California law, you make contact us by:
Aldridge Pite, LLP
Attn: Compliance Department
Fifteen Piedmont Center
3575 Piedmont Road NE, Suite 500
Atlanta, Georgia 30305
We will respond to you as expeditiously as possible, subject to business operational considerations.
This Notice is Effective as of January 1, 2020.
