California Consumer Privacy Act (hereafter, “CCPA”) is a California privacy law that will be effective as of January 1, 2020.
Under CCPA, California consumers have several rights and privileges that serve to protect their personal information from being used in a way they do not desire.
The consumer has the right to request and to know what categories of personal information we collect, how we collect it, and for what purposes we use it.
CONSUMER’S RIGHT TO REQUEST DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
You have the right to request disclosure of what categories of information we have or are collecting about you, and what personal information we have collected or are collecting on you.
In an effort to comply with the CCPA, we are disclosing the categories of information we are generally collecting about consumers.
As a consumer, you are free to request disclosure of your information at no extra charge to you if you make such requests no more than twice (2) during a 12-month period.
GENERAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
On our website at foodbloggerresources.com, we collect deidentified information on IP addresses, demographics, language, and country of origin. This information is used by Google Analytics to provide us aggregate information on which posts and pages are being visited and how frequently. This allows us to monitor our site’s traffic and helps with security related issues. We also use this information to plan new posts and pages and help us with our marketing strategies. We collect this information through opt-in forms, Word Press cookies, Google Analytics, and Facebook pixels.
You have the right to request disclosure of your collected personal information we have by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a letter to: Attention: Shelley, P O Box 370 Matador, Texas 79244.
CONSUMER’S RIGHT TO REQUEST DELETION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Under CCPA, a consumer has the right to contact the business that collected personal information and request deletion of that information.
Under limited circumstances, foodbloggerresources.com does not have to comply with requests to delete personal information. Personal information may be kept and used:
To complete a transaction or delivery of goods and services to our customers.
To comply with a legal obligation.
To comply with requirements imposed by law or requested by law enforcement agencies.
For internal business purposes related to serving our customers and managing our business.
CONSUMER’S RIGHT TO DEMAND DISCLOSURE IN CASE OF SALE OF foodbloggerresources.com
As a consumer, you have the right to request full disclosure if the business sells or transfers your personal information for a business purpose. You have the right to know what information specifically has been sold or transferred, to whom, and for what business purpose.
foodbloggerresources.com DOES NOT SELL PERSONAL INFORMATION we collect from consumers.
However, in the event we sell or transfer foodbloggerresources.com within the next 12 months, you will be given the option to opt-out if you don’t wish for your personal information to be sold.
The consumer has the right to request that we disclose what category of information we sold, the specific pieces of information we sold, to whom we sold it, and for what business purpose. Consumers can make this request by email: email@example.com or sending a letter to: Attention: Shelley, Food Blogger Resources, PO Box 370 Matador, Texas 79244.
CONSUMER’S RIGHT TO REQUEST BUSINESS NOT SELL INFORMATION
Under CCPA, a consumer has the right to request that a business which has collected personal information of a consumer does not sell that information to anyone.
In our efforts to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act, you can find a “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link in the footer of our website. This option will also be available on any opt-in forms that you find on our site.
If and when you select “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” you will be marked as opt-out in our records. Therefore, you can be sure that your personal information, and in general, identifying data collected on you will never be sold.
BUSINESS WILL NOT DISCRIMINATE AGAINST CONSUMER
If you choose to exercise your right to request that we never sell your information, we will not and cannot discriminate against you for choosing to exercise your rights.
You will have access to the same services, at the same prices as everyone else. The quality and conditions of products and services you receive will be the same as everyone else, regardless if you have exercised your CCPA right to forbid selling of your personal information.
SECURING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Under CCPA, a business that collects or receives personal information about the consumer must implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices.
If a business experiences a data breach, then it will be held liable if it did not implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices.
We strive, daily, to maintain reasonable security procedures and practices and to make sure that consumer data and private information is safe and secure.
These are the security practices we have in place to protect consumer data:
All the systems containing consumer information are on third party computer systems and are password protected and securely managed by their owners.
Our service providers use strong passwords, https, and other security protocols to protect the data used by foodbloggerresources.com for providing goods and services to our customers.
We take steps with our service providers to maintain secure access to our accounts over encrypted https.
Our website is on a secure server and can only be reached through https. We regularly manage the security of our website to prevent unauthorized access to personal information.
We take our obligation to protect consumers and their information from unauthorized use, modification, destruction, and disclosure very seriously, and we strive to keep that from happening.
If you wish to exercise your rights under CCPA and make requests for disclosure, deletion or disclosure about a sale of information, you can contact us directly by email or letter to make such requests. You can also contact us at anytime if you’re not happy about the way we’re handling your data.
We will respond as quickly as reasonably possible. Please remember that if you make more than two CCPA deletion requests during a 12-month period, we may have to decline your request or charge a fee to cover our costs for handling them.
You can contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail: Attention: Shelley, P O Box 370, Matador, TX 79244
EFFECTIVE AS OF January 1, 2020.
