6. Additional Policies in Compliance with the CCPA
The CCPA affords California consumers the rights with respect to their Personal Information set forth in this section.
6.1 Right to Know About Personal Information Collected, Used, Disclosed, or Sold
California consumers have the right to request that the Company disclose what personal information it has collected, used, disclosed, and sold over the 12-month period preceding the Company’s receipt of such a request. To exercise this right, a California consumer must submit to the Company a verifiable request to know such information. This request can be submitted by following the procedures set forth in the Contact Us section.
6.2 Right to Request Deletion of Personal Information
California consumers have the right to request the deletion of their personal information collected or maintained by the Company. To exercise this right, a California consumer must submit to the Company a verifiable request to delete such information. This request can be submitted by following the procedures set forth in the Contact Us section.
6.3 Right to Non-Discrimination for the Exercise of a Consumer’s Privacy Rights
California consumers have the right to not be discriminated against because the consumer exercised any of the consumer’s rights under the CCPA. That means that the company may not deny goods or services to the consumer, charge different rates for goods or services, or provide a different level or quality of goods or services if the consumer chooses to exercise their rights under the CCPA (unless the different rate or different level or quality is reasonably related to the value to the business of the consumer’s data).
6.4 Submitting a CCPA Data Request
To submit a request to know about the Personal Information we collect about you as described in Section 6.1 or a request for deletion of your Personal Information as described in 6.2, please contact us by calling this toll free number 1-855-761-TOPA (8672) or by emailing us at CCPA@topa.com.
We are required to verify the identity of the individual submitting a request to know or delete a request. To verify your identity, you must provide:
- If Topa has previously received your email address, Topa may verify that you have access to that email address by sending a verification code; or
- Verification of government issued identification. In the event the person requesting the information is not the individual we have on record Topa may require legal documents to support the requestor’s legal authority to obtain and access those records
California consumers may designate an authorized agent to exercise a CCPA right on the consumer’s behalf. If a consumer utilizes an authorized agent to exercise a CCPA right, the following proof that the agent has been authorized to act on the consumer’s behalf will need to be provided:
- Proof of written permission by the consumer for the authorized agent to act on his or her behalf and separate verification of the consumer; or
- Proof that the authorized agent holds a power of attorney to act on the consumer’s behalf pursuant to Cal. Probate Code §§ 4000-4465
