Your Rights and Choices
The CCPA 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 to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights
You have the right to request that RMI disclose certain information to you about its collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once RMI receives and confirms your verifiable consumer request, it will disclose to you:
- The categories of personal information that RMI collected about you.
- RMI’s business or commercial purpose for collecting that personal information.
- The categories of third parties with whom RMI shares that personal information.
- The specific pieces of personal information that RMI collected about you (also called a data portability request).
Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that RMI delete any of your personal information that RMI collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once RMI receives and confirms your verifiable consumer request, RMI will delete (and direct its service providers to delete) your personal information from its records, unless an exception applies.
RMI may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for it or its service providers to:
- Complete the transaction for which RMI collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of RMI’s ongoing relationship with you, or otherwise perform its Services for you.
- Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
- Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
- Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
- Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 seq.).
- 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.
- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with RMI.
- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
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 RMI 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:
- Provide sufficient information that allows RMI to reasonably verify you are the person about whom RMI collected personal information or an authorized representative.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows RMI to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
RMI cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if it cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm that the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with RMI. RMI 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
RMI will try to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If RMI requires more time (up to 90 days), it will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If you are a co-employee of RMI, then RMI will deliver its written response to the email that you provided in the RMI Center or to your work-site employer. If you are not an RMI co-employee, then RMI will deliver its written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures that RMI provides will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response that RMI provides will also explain the reasons that it cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, RMI 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.
RMI does not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If RMI determines that the request warrants a fee, RMI will inform you why it made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
RMI will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, RMI will not:
- Deny you use of its Services.
- Provide you a different level or quality of Services.
