11. Notice to California Residents

The information provided in this section applies only to California residents.
We are required by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) to provide to California residents an explanation of how we collect, use and share their personal information, and of the rights and choices we offer California residents regarding our handling of personal information.
This notice does not apply to any health or medical information we collect that is otherwise governed by California’s Confidentiality of Medical Information Act or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. This notice also does not apply to information related to our business contacts (including any partner physicians or therapists).
Personal Information We Collect, Use and Share
In addition to the information in our Privacy Policy, the following chart further describes our privacy practices with respect to the personal information of our California consumers.
Information we collect about you CCPA-defined categories (Definitions are available here.) Sources of personal information Purposes for which we may collect and use the personal information Categories of third parties to which we disclose the personal information
Account Registration Contact Information Correspondence Identifiers Online Identifiers Commercial Information You To provide our Website and products/services To send you marketing communications To respond to your requests None
Payment Information Purchases Identifiers Financial Information You Third Parties To provide our Website and products/services None
Automatically Collected Information Online Identifiers Internet or Network Information Inferences Automatic collection To provide our Website and products/services To send you marketing communications To advertise our services to you To create anonymous data for analytics Collected directly by advertising partners
Please note that we may also disclose all personal information to affiliates and service providers, or for purposes of corporate restructuring and compliance, as described in Disclosure of Your Information.
California Residents’ Privacy Rights
Except as excluded from the scope of this notice above, the CCPA grants California residents the following rights.
  • Information. You can request information about how we have collected, used and shared and used your personal information during the past 12 months. We have made this information available to California residents without having to request it by including it in this notice, in the above chart.
  • Access. You can request a copy of the personal information that we maintain about you.
  • Deletion. You can ask us to delete the personal information that we collected or maintain about you.
  • Opt-out of sale of your personal information. You have a right to opt out from the "sale" of your personal information. We do not sell your personal information in the conventional sense, i.e., for money. However, like many companies, we use services that help deliver interest-based ads to you. Our use of these services may constitute a “sale” of your personal information for purposes of the CCPA because the advertising partners that provide the services may collect information from our users (e.g., the device data and online activity data described above) to help them serve ads more likely to interest you. Please click the “Do Not Sell My Info” link at the footer of the Website to manage cookies used on our Website.
You are entitled to exercise the rights described above free from discrimination.
Please note that the CCPA limits these rights by, for example, prohibiting us from providing certain sensitive information in response to an access request and limiting the circumstances in which we must comply with a deletion request. If we deny your request, we will communicate our decision to you.
How to Submit a Request.
  • To request access to or deletion of personal information:
  • Identity verification. The CCPA requires us to verify the identity of the individual submitting a request to access or delete personal information before providing a substantive response to the request. We may attempt to verify your identity by asking you to confirm the information that we have on file about you or your interactions with us. Where we ask for additional personal information to verify your identity, we will only use it to verify your identity or your authority to make the request on behalf of another consumer.
  • Authorized agents. California residents can empower an “authorized agent” to submit requests on their behalf. We will require the authorized agent to have written authorization confirming such authority.
Shine the Light
It is our policy not to disclose personal information (as defined in California’s Shine the Light Law, California Civil Code Section 1798.83) provided to us by our users (as defined in the Shine the Light Law) to third parties for their direct marketing purposes if the customer has exercised an option that prevents that information from being disclosed to third parties for those purposes. Such customers may exercise this option by submitting a CCPA opt-out request to support@joinmonument.com.
