TheCCPA 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 toSpecific Information and Data Portability Rights
You have the right to request that the Company disclose certain information to youabout our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access,Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will disclose to you:
You have the right to request that the Company delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access,Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), 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:
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:8
Only you, or a 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. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability 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.
Making a verifiable consumer 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.
For instructions on exercising sale opt-out rights, see PersonalInformation Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights.
ResponseTiming and Format
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45)days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to forty-five (45) days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, 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, specifically electronic delivery.
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.
PersonalInformation Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights9
If you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information at any time (the “right to opt-out”). We do not sell the personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “right to opt-in”)from either the consumer who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age. Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time.
To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us by visiting the following Internet Web page link:
Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales. However, you may change your mind and opt back in to personal information sales at any time by:
You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your opt-out rights. We will only use 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 CCPA rights.Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

1The policy should identify the date it was last revised and optionally, the date it was last reviewed. The CCPA requires HOMEMETA to review and update the privacy notice content at least every 12 months. If the annual review does not cause the business to change or alter the policy, it should add the optional "last reviewed" clause. This confirms that the required annual review took place but did not lead to changes requiring a new effective date.
2 When disclosing the personal information categories that HOMEMETA collects about consumers, the CCPA expects the privacy notice to reference and use the 11 categories listed in its personal information definition that most closely describe the personal information collected. This chart, where HOMEMETA affirmatively states whether it has or has not collected that type of personal information provides the required information in a clear, easy-to-understand format. It also helps HOMEMETA comply with the requirement to produce individualized lists by category on request. The company should carefully review and categorize the personal information it collects to complete the chart.
3 The CCPA requires the business to identify the categories of sources from which it collects personal information. While it does not elaborate on or provide examples of the source categories a business should use, HOMEMETA should describe them with sufficient detail to provide clear and meaningful disclosures about where acquired personal information originates.
4 Under the CCPA, HOMEMETA must disclose its purposes for collecting or selling personal information. This section provides optional clauses describing several common commercial or business purposes for using personal information. However, the Company should carefully review how and why it uses the personal information it collects to provide clear and accurate disclosures. The CCPA's purpose limitation clause prohibits using collected personal information for purposes not listed in the privacy notice or uses unrelated to those purposes (Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.100(b)). Therefore, the business should ensure that the provided list comprehensively describes both current and reasonably anticipated use cases.
5The CCPA requires that HOMEMETA to provide a statement on its personal information disclosures for a business purpose during the preceding 12 months that either: (a) States that no disclosures occurred OR (b) provides the categories of personal information disclosed, using the 11 categories listed in the personal information definition that most closely describe the personal information.
6The CCPA requires HOMEMETA to provide a statement on its personal information sales during the preceding 12 months that either (a) states that no sales occurred OR (b) provides the categories of personal information sold, using the11 categories listed in the personal information definition that most closely describe the personal information.The company should carefully review the types of personal information it sold to identify which categories it should list in the privacy notice.
7The CCPA notice must disclose the consumers' right to request deletion of their personal information and requires HOMEMETA to delete personal information from its records after receiving a verifiable consumer request, unless one of nine statutory exceptions allow the business to retain it. HOMEMETA must also instruct its service providers to delete any information that theCCPA requires it to delete under this consumer right.
8The CCPA only requires HOMEMETA to honor a consumer's access, data portability, and deletion rights if the person makes a verifiable consumer request that allows the business to reasonably verify the requester's identity and requires HOMEMETA to provide consumers with at least two methods for making verifiable requests to exercise these CCPA rights.
The methods must include at least:
(a) A toll-free telephone number; and
(b)A website address.
9Under the CCPA, a business selling a consumer's personal information must provide notice of the consumer's opt-out and opt-in rights by:
(a) Creating an internet webpage with the title"Do Not Sell My Personal Information" that enables a consumer (or other authorized person) to opt-out of personal information sales.
(b) Clearly and conspicuously linking to that page from either its: (1) public internet home page; or (2)a California-specific public internet home page, if it takes reasonable steps to direct allCalifornia consumers to that California home page instead of the general one.
(c) Including both a description of the right and a separate link to the "Do Not Sell My Personal Information" page in:(1) its online privacy policies, if they exist; and (2) any California-specific description of consumers' privacy rights.
