Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that The Savvy Sampler delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions listed within the CCPA (for example, if we need to complete a transaction or detect security incidents). Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
In order to make a verifiable consumer request as described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to The Savvy Sampler by either:
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. In order for The Savvy Sampler to properly process your request, please ensure that your verifiable consumer request:
- Contains sufficient information that allows The Savvy Sampler to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
- You will need to provide us with your e-mail address that you used to register with The Savvy Sampler and your physical mailing address for The Savvy Sampler to verify your identity.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows The Savvy Sampler to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to your request. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. We will only use the personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
We will make our best efforts to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of receipt. If we require more time to respond, we will let you know the reason and the extension period in writing. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with the request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily usable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your requests unless the requests are excessive, repetitive, or unfounded. If we determine that your request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights
You have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information at any time (the right to “opt-out”). Consumers who opt-in to the sale of their personal information may opt-out of future sales at any time. To exercise your right to opt-out, you may submit a request to us by visiting the following Internet Web Page link: “DO NOT SELL MY PERSONAL INFORMATION”. Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales. However, you may change your mind and opt back into personal information sales at any time by registering with The Savvy Sampler again. We will only use your personal information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request.
The Savvy Sampler will not discriminate against you for exercising your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not: deny you goods or services, charge you a different price for goods or services, provide you with a different level or quality of goods or services, suggest that you may receive a different price for goods or services, or suggest that you may receive a different level or quality of goods or services.
