Categories of Sources of Personal Information Collected
CWC obtains personal information from consumers using the Site (as defined in the Policy), individuals or entities using the Site on behalf of consumers, or individuals or entities with whom or which CWC has a business relationship. CWC may also obtain personal information from employees in the ordinary course of business.
CWC uses personal information collected by it for one or more of the following purposes:
CWC does not sell any personal information to third parties. CWC may share personal information with third parties that enable CWC to provide products and services and otherwise conduct its business operations. Categories of third parties with whom or which CWC may share personal information include the following:
The following is a summary of a consumer’s rights under the CCPA:
Consumers have the right to request that CWC disclose certain information to them regarding their personal information as follows:
Consumers may request that CWC delete any personal information retained by CWC, subject to certain exceptions. Upon receiving and confirming a verifiable consumer request, CWC will delete (and direct its service providers to delete) personal information from CWC’s (or such service providers’) records, except that CWC may deny a request if retaining the personal information is necessary for CWC or one of its service providers to:
To exercise any rights described in these disclosures, a consumer must submit a verifiable consumer request to CWC as set forth in the Policy. Only a consumer, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that a consumer authorizes to act on behalf of the consumer, may make a verifiable consumer request relating to personal information. A consumer may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of a minor child.
A verifiable consumer request for access to personal information or data portability can only be made by a consumer twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
CWC cannot respond to a request or provide personal information if it cannot verify the consumer’s identity or authority to make the request, and confirm the personal information relates to the consumer. CWC will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
CWC endeavors to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days after its receipt. If CWC requires more time (up to an additional 45 days), CWC will inform the consumer of the reason and extension period in writing. CWC will deliver its written response by mail or electronically, at the consumer’s option. Any disclosures provided by CWC will only cover the 12-month period preceding receipt of the verifiable consumer request. The response provided by CWC will, if applicable, also explain the reasons it cannot comply with any portion of the request. For data portability requests, CWC will select a format to provide personal information that is readily useable and should allow the consumer to electronically transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
CWC does not charge a fee to process or respond to a verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If CWC determines that any request warrants a fee, it will tell the consumer why a fee is warranted and provide the consumer with a cost estimate before completing the request.
CWC will not discriminate against a consumer for exercising any rights under the CCPA. In particular, if a consumer exercises any such rights, CWC will not:
CWC may revise these disclosures from time to time by posting the revisions on the Site. Any such revision will take effect immediately upon such posting, but will only relate to personal information collected after such revision is posted. It is a consumer’s responsibility to periodically check the Site for revisions to these disclosures.
