Notice for California Users – Your California Privacy Rights
This section is applicable to residents of California. If you are a resident of California, you have certain rights described below. The following do not apply to individuals who do not live in California on a permanent basis.
• RIGHTS PROVIDED BY CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1798.83
A California resident who has provided personal data to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes (a "California Customer") may request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. In general, if the business has made such a disclosure of personal data, upon receipt of a request by a California Customer, the business is required to provide a list of all third parties to whom personal data was disclosed in the preceding calendar year, as well as a list of the categories of personal data that were disclosed. California Customers may request further information about our compliance with this law by mailing us at 1320 Main Street, Columbia, SC 29201 or emailing us at email@example.com. Please note that we are only required to respond to two requests per California Customer each year under Code Section 1798.83.
• RIGHTS UNDER THE CALIFORNIA CONSUMER PRIVACY ACT
1. You have a Right to Know About Personal Information Collected, Disclosed, or Sold.
California residents have the right to request that we disclose what personal information we collect, use, disclose, and sell. This is called the “Right to Know”. Under the Right to Know, you can request a listing of the types of personal information we have collected about you, the sources of that information, how we use the information (e.g., our business or commercial purposes for collecting or selling personal information), other individuals and business with whom we share personal information, and the specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you.
If you would like the above information, you may contact us through our webpage or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact information is at the bottom of this section. When you make a request under your Right to Know, you can expect the following:
a) We will verify your identity. You will need to provide your full name, email address, and phone number in order for us to verify that you are who you say you are.
b) We will confirm our receipt of your request within 10 days. If you have not received a response within a few days after that, please let us know by contacting us at the webpage or phone number listed below.
c) We will respond to your request within 45 days. If necessary, we may need an additional period of time, up to another 45 days, but we will always reply within the first 45-day period and, if we need an extension, we will explain why.
d) In certain cases, a Request to Know may be denied, for example, if we cannot verify your identity or if providing you the information could create an unreasonable risk to someone’s security (for example, we do not want very sensitive information disclosed inappropriately). If we deny your request, we will explain why we denied it. If we deny a request, we will still try to provide you as much of the information as we can, but we will withhold the information subject to denial.
In the last twelve months, the categories of Personal Information we have collected about you are listed above in the section titled: The Types of Information We Collect.

e) In certain cases, a request for deletion may be denied, for example, if we cannot verify your identity, the law or our ethical obligations require that we maintain the information, or if we need the information for internal purposes such as keeping records of any warranties. If we deny your request, we will explain why we denied it, and delete any other information that is not protected from deletion.
3. Right to Opt-Out of the Sale of Personal Information
California consumers have a right to opt-out of the sale of their personal information. However, as we do not sell any of your information to anyone for any purpose, we are exempt from these requests.
