This Privacy Notice for California Residents (Notice) supplements the information provided by DhiWise, Inc. (“DhiWise”, “we”, “us” or “our”) in our privacy policies. This notice applies solely to
We adopt this notice to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) and any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this notice.
The CCPA provides California residents with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you the information you have requested. You may, under California law, request one or more of the following types of information:
You have the right to request that we 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, 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 email at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 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) additional 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.
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.
Although California law requires businesses to give individuals a right to opt out of the sales of personal information and bars the sale of personal information of minors younger than 16 without affirmative authorization, we neither sells personal information nor has customers that are minors. Accordingly, this set of rights does not apply to us.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. If you or your representative exercises rights under CCPA, we will not:
California law requires online service providers to disclose in their privacy policies how they respond to “do not track” signals. These signals are settings in browser software requesting that websites not track users’ activities. There is no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. Accordingly, we do not currently take action in response to these browser settings. If and when there are industry standard ways for responding to these signals, we may revisit our policy on responding to these signals.
Under California Business and Professions Code Section 22581, a business with actual knowledge that a minor has posted information to its website must allow minors with registered accounts with the business the right to request and obtain deletion of information they posted publicly with some exceptions. We do not allow minors to have registered accounts with us and do not permit minors to use our website. However, registered users of social media accounts may post information to our blogs. Accordingly, although we may not be required to provide a right of erasure to minors, we will honor any requests from minors to delete any information they have posted on our blogs, which are publicly available. Any such request should include a detailed description of the specific content or information to be removed. Please be aware that applicable law may permit or require us to retain some or all of your posted information on a publicly available location.
We reserve the right to amend this Notice at our discretion and at any time. When we make changes to the Notice, we will post the updated Notice on our website and update the Notice’s effective date. Your continued use of our website and service following the posting of changes constitutes your acceptance of such changes.
