Your Rights and Choices

The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal

Access to Specific Information and Data Portability 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 categories of personal information we collected about you.

  • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.

  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.

  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.

  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability

  • request).

  • If we sold or disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, two separate lists

  • disclosing: 

  • sales, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient purchased; and 

  • disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

We do not provide these access and data portability rights for B2B personal information.

Deletion Request Rights

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. Deleting your personal information may make it impossible for you

to access or use our services.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service

provider(s) to:

A. Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or

service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing

business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted

in accordance with federal law, or otherwise perform our contract with you.

 

B. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or

prosecute those responsible for such activities.

 

C. Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.

 

D. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or

exercise another right provided for by law.

 

E. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).

 

F. Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public

interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s

deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you

previously provided informed consent.

 

G. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your

relationship with us.


H. Comply with a legal obligation.

 

I. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in

which you provided it.

 

We do not provide these deletion rights for B2B personal information.

Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable

consumer request to us by emailing us at privacy@afn.global.

 

Only you, or someone legally authorized 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:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.

  • 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.

 

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.

Response Timing 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 90 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.

Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights

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. 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

emailing us at privacy@afn.global. 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

emailing us at privacy@afn.global.

 

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.

Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the

CCPA, we will not:​

  • Deny you goods or services.

  • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts orother benefits, or imposing penalties.

  • Provide you 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.

However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.

We reserve the right to amend this Notice at our discretion and at any time. When we make changes to

this Notice, we will post the updated Notice on the Website and update the Notice’s effective date.

Your continued use of our Website following the posting of changes constitutes your acceptance of such

changes.
