Terms used in this section and not otherwise defined have the meaning given to them under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CPRA”).

Specifically, unless certain exceptions apply, the CPRA allows the following:
a. Right to know
You can request information about the categories of personal information we collect or disclose about you; the categories of sources of such information; the business or commercial purpose for collecting the personal information; and the categories of third parties with whom we share/disclose personal information.
Society should respond to those requests with details on which personal information was collected within the prior 12 (twelve) months, and under certain circumstances, beyond the prior 12 (twelve) month period.
b. Right to opt-out
You have the right to opt-out of businesses selling and sharing your data.
c. Right to delete
You can request Society to delete their personal information if it is no longer needed, and Society has the obligation to request third parties that have bought or received the personal information in question to also delete it.
d. Right to Data Portability

The data subject has the right to limit the use and disclosure of their sensitive personal information.

We reserve the right to verify your identity before responding to a request, which may include, at a minimum, depending on the sensitivity of the information you are requesting and the type of request you are making, verifying your name, email address, phone number, or other information. You are also permitted to designate an authorized agent to submit certain requests on your behalf.
In order for an authorized agent to be verified, you must provide the authorized agent with signed, written permission to make such requests or a power of attorney. We may also follow up with you to verify your identity before processing the authorized agent’s request.
Please note that certain information may be exempt from such requests under California law. For example, we need certain information in order to provide the Services or to comply with legal obligations, so we would need to either reject the request to delete the information or, if we are legally permitted to delete it, we would need to terminate our provision of the Services to the data subject after deleting it.
If you would like further information regarding your legal rights under California law or would like to exercise any of them, please email email@example.com.
California residents have the right to opt out of the “sale” or “sharing” of their personal information.
California law broadly defines “sale” in a way that may include allowing third parties to receive certain information such as cookies, IP address and/or browsing behavior for interest-based advertising or related purposes.
Although Society does not currently sell personal information in exchange for any monetary consideration, we may share personal information for these purposes in such a way that could be deemed a “sale” as defined by the CPRA.
We also share certain information as set forth in “Cookies and other Tracking Technologies” section. For details on how to opt out of cookies, please see the “Cookies Policy”.
