Personal information does not include publicly-available information and information that is regulated by certain other applicable laws and exempt from the requirements of the CCPA, such as personal health information subject to The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996.
Right to Know & Data Portability

You may only make a verifiable “Right to Know” request twice within a 12-month period.
Right to Opt-Out

You have the right at any time to request that we delete your personal information. However, in some cases we cannot delete all or some of your personal information as required or permitted by applicable laws.
Right to Correct
You have the right to request that we correct inaccurate personal information that we maintain about you. However, in some cases, we may deny requests to correct inaccurate personal information, or may alternatively delete such personal information.
Right to Non-Discrimination
We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under the CCPA, such as by denying you products and services, charging you different rates or prices, including use of discounts or penalties, or suggesting or providing a different level of service or quality of products to you. However, we may charge a different price or provide a different level or quality of products and services if the price or difference is directly related to the value provided to you by your personal information.
