California Consumer Privacy Act

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), effective January 1, 2020, gives California consumers enhanced rights with respect to their personal information that is collected by businesses. First, California consumers may opt out of having their personal information sold to other persons or parties. Second, they have a right to know:

  1. What specific pieces of information a business has about the consumer;
  2. Categories of personal information it has collected about the consumer;
  3. Categories of sources from which the personal information is collected;
  4. Categories of personal information that the business sold or disclosed for a business purpose about the consumer;
  5. Categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold or disclosed for a business purpose; and
  6. The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information

In addition, California consumers can request that the personal information a business has collected about them be deleted from the business’s systems and records.

Company may be considered a covered business under the CCPA as it collects and processes the personal information of California consumers. This Privacy Policy provides the required notices to California consumers. The CCPA also prohibits covered businesses from providing discriminatory treatment to California consumers if they exercise their rights under the Act.

We do not rent or sell your personally identifiable information (such as name, address, telephone number, and credit card information) to unaffiliated third parties for their marketing purposes. We may share your information with third parties to provide products and services you have requested, when we have your consent, or as described in this Privacy Policy.

To make a “request to know” or request to delete your personal information, send us an e-mail at support@Notivatehealth.com.
(Please put either “Request to Know” or “Request to Delete” in the subject heading of your email.) We will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor these requests whether or not you would qualify as a California consumer under the CCPA.

If and to the extent we are considered a covered business under the CCPA: We will confirm receipt of your request within 10 days along with a description of what steps we will take to verify and respond. We must provide the requested information or delete your personal information within 45 days of receipt of your request but can use an additional 45 days, but we must let you know the additional time is needed.

When contacting us, we may ask you to provide certain, limited personal information, such as your name, email address and/or account login ID and/or password, to verify your request and to match with our records and systems. This is also to protect against fraud. We will not retain this personal information or use it for any other purpose. Also please be advised that we need to search our records and systems only for the preceding 12 months.

Residents of other states may also have similar rights to request information about or delete their personal information. To inquire about exercising these rights, please contact us at support@Notivatehealth.com.

Pursuant to California’s “Shine The Light law (California Civil Code § 1798.983), California residents are entitled, once a year and free of charge, to request the disclosure of certain categories of personal information to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year, if any. Under the law, a business should either provide California customers certain information upon request or permit California customers to opt out of this type of sharing. You may request this information by contacting us at support@Notivatehealth.com.

Indicate in the email subject line, “California Shine The Light Request.” Please include your mailing address, state of residence, and email address with your request.
