Your Rights and Choices
The applicable privacy regulations provide the following rights regarding your personal information:
Right to Know - Categories Request
You have the right to request, twice in a 12-month period, the following information about the personal information we have collected about you during the past 12 months:
- The categories of personal information we have collected about you;
- The categories of sources from which we collected the personal information;
- Our business or commercial purposes for which we collected, sold, or shared the personal information;
- The categories of third parties to whom we sold or shared the personal information, by category or categories of personal information for each category of third parties to whom the personal information was sold or shared;
- The categories of personal information about you that we disclosed for a business purpose, and the categories of persons to whom we disclosed that information for a business purpose.
Right to Know - Specific Pieces
You have the right to request a transportable copy of the specific pieces of personal information we collected about you in the 12-month period preceding your request. Please note that personal information is retained by us for various time periods, so there may be certain information that we have collected about you that we do not retain for a 12-month period and thus, it would not be able to be included in our response to you. Also, under your applicable state’s law, you may be limited to a certain number of “right to know” requests in any 12-month period.
Right to Delete
You have the right to request that we delete certain personal information that we collected from you. Please understand that we cannot delete personal information in those situations where our retention is required for our own internal business purposes or otherwise permitted by relevant U.S. Privacy Laws (such as fraud prevention or legal compliance). When we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
Right to Correct
You have the right to request that we correct inaccuracies that you find in your personal information maintained by us. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to correct any inaccurate information and we will instruct our service providers or any contractors to correct such information. We will also inform you whether or not we have complied with your request, including any basis for denial of the request.
Exercising Your Rights
As permitted by certain privacy regulations, certain requests you submit to us are subject to an identify verification process (“verifiable request”). We will not fulfill such requests unless you have provided sufficient information for us to reasonably verify you are the individual about whom we have collected personal information. To complete your request, please contact us by either:
- Emailing us at with the subject line “Exercising Your Privacy Rights”
- Visit the “Contact Us” page on our website and send a message entitled “Exercising Your Privacy Rights”
Only you, or a person registered with the appropriate governmental authority that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable request on behalf of your minor child. If you submit a request on behalf of another person, we may require proof of authorization and verification of identity directly from the person for whom you are submitting a request.
To help protect your privacy and maintain security, we take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to your personal information or considering your deletion or correction request. The verifiable request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative, which may include your name and email address;
- 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 personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. We will review the information provided as part of your request and may ask you to provide additional information via email or other means as part of this verification process.
Making a verifiable request does not require you to create an account with us. However, we do consider requests made through your password protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 888.983.1606. We endeavor to respond to a verifiable request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 45 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable 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 Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights
Under various privacy regulations, you have the right to opt-out of certain processing activities. Some regulations have opt-outs specific to Targeted Advertising activities (which California’s regulation refers to as “cross-context behavioral advertising” and others simply as “targeted advertising”), which involve the use of personal information from different businesses to target advertisements to you. California provides you the right to opt-out of sharing, which includes providing or making available personal information to third parties for such targeted advertising activities, while other states provide you the right to opt-out from processing personal information for targeted advertising more broadly. There are differing concepts of what the sale of personal information means under various state regulations, all of which, however, at a minimum, require making available personal information to a third party.
We may use certain personal information that you provide to us to advertise to you. This may include making available your information to certain third parties in a way that may constitute a sale and/or sharing (for purposes of targeted advertising). When you opt-out pursuant to the instructions below, it will opt you out of the sale, sharing, targeted advertising.
To opt-out of our processing of your non-cookie personal information (such as, for example, your email address) for targeted advertising or the sale or sharing of such data, make an opt-out request.
If you would like to submit a request to opt-out of our processing of your cookie personal information, you need to exercise a separate opt-out request on our cookie management tool found on our home page.
Global Privacy Control (“GPC”)
Some privacy regulations require businesses to process GPC signals, which is a signal sent by a platform, technology, or mechanism, enabled by individuals on their devices or browsers, that communicate the individual’s choice to opt-out of the sale or sharing of personal information or processing of personal information for targeted advertising. To use GPC, you can download an internet browser and follow the settings to enable the GPC. We have configured the settings of our platform to receive and process GPC signals on our Website. Thus, for example, if you visit our Website on a particular browser that has been used to activate the GPC, we will apply the GPC signal to cookie personal information collected on that browser. If you log onto that browser, we will be able to apply the GPC signal to non-cookie personal information (but only if and after you have logged into your user account on that browser). If you visit our Website using a different browser, and the GPC is not enabled, we will not be able to apply the prior GPC signal from the original browser to cookie personal information on that different browser unless you login to your user account on that different browser. However, we will continue to apply your opt-out communicated via the GPC on the first browser.
We process GPC signals in a frictionless manner, meaning we do not charge a fee for use of our service if you have enabled GPC, change your experience with our Website if you use GPC, or display any notification or pop-up in response to the GPC.
You may also submit a request to opt-out by emailing us at email@example.com. You will need to provide your First Name, Last Name, Email Address and confirmation of the state in which you reside.
Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least 12 months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales. However, you may change your mind and opt back in to sharing personal information by filling out a form with the requested information and submitting that form.
You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your opt-out rights. We will only use your 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 rights under any applicable privacy regulation. In particular, unless permitted under the law, we will not:
- Deny you goods or services.
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
- Provide you with a different level or quality of goods or services.
- Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
We also may offer you certain incentives if you participate, for example, in our private Facebook Group. To join the group, we will have access to your name attached to your profile and your response to our questions relating to the age of your child[ren], how did you hear about the group, and what you hope to get out of group participation. Participation in the group will provide you with early access to product launches, obtain group only discounts, have chances to win free products and prices, and interact or see guests.
We reserve the right to change this Policy. If we decide to make changes, we will post the updated policy on our Website so you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and the circumstances, if any, we disclose it. The date this Rights Policy was last revised is identified at the top of the page. You are responsible for ensuring that we have an up-to-date active and deliverable email address for you, and for periodically visiting our website and the Policy to check for any changes. Your continued use of our Website following the posting of changes constitutes acceptance of such changes. Where required by applicable data protection laws, we will also seek your consent to any material changes that affect how we use your information.
If you need help with unsubscribing, or have questions regarding this Rights Policy, the ways in which we collect, share, and use your information as described in this Policy, your choices and rights regarding such use, or wish to exercise your rights under the law, please contact us at:
