Effective Date: January 14, 2020
This Site utilizes a Service Provider ("Service Provider"). Service Provider has a platform that it licenses to the Site Owner and performs services related to your purchase. These services include, but are not limited to: (i) processing orders, (ii) verifying order details and confirming validity of payment information, (iii) charging your credit or debit card, and (iv) coordinating the delivery of purchased tickets. Service Provider does not design or market the Site and its sole relationship with the Site Owner is that of independent contractor. Service Provider and Site Owner shall collectively be referred to as "We" and “Us” within these Terms, and references to “our” refer to both Site Owner and Service Provider.
Ticket Purchase Policy:
When you find desirable tickets and wish to purchase them, you fill out and submit the information requested on the Site, which constitutes an order. This order is an offer to purchase the tickets from the seller. Once you submit the order, you cannot cancel or retract it. Upon the submission of the order, a hold will be placed on your credit or debit card for the funds necessary to purchase these tickets. You will receive an email sent to the address you provide to Us promptly after you place your order. It is your responsibility to provide a valid email address, and to confirm all information contained in your order submission. Neither of these actions complete the sale. Rather, a completed sale is dependent on the seller's acceptance of the order and written notice of confirmation to you that the order is accepted. Upon the seller's acceptance of the order, your credit or debit card used in placing the order will be charged. By placing an order, you authorize Service Provider to charge your method of payment for the total order amount, including all fees and charges. Please note that the price you pay may be higher than the face value of the tickets. A large number of ticket resellers list their tickets on the Site, and all ticket listings, locations, descriptions, and pricing are provided by the ticket sellers. We do not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided by ticket sellers presented on the Site, and We are not responsible for errors within the inventory listed for sale. It is the purchaser's responsibility to verify any possible inconsistency or discrepancy in the ticket location, description and/or price by calling our Customer Service Department at 800-854-2196 before the order is placed. If We find an error when processing your order, you will be notified of the error and provided with available options, including the option of cancelling your order.
Ticket Purchase Policy:
We reserve the right to replace tickets with comparable or upgraded tickets. When this occurs, We shall be considered to have fulfilled our obligations under these Terms. Definitions of "comparable" and "upgraded" are made at our reasonable discretion. Should We fail to deliver any confirmed ticket purchase, our sole obligation or liability shall be limited, unless otherwise required by law, to the return of any payment made by you in relation to the undelivered ticket. We reserve the right to cancel and refund your order at any time for any reason.
Due to the large volume of ticket sellers listing tickets, locations, descriptions and pricing of similar or equal tickets may vary.
100% Buyer Guarantee
The 100% Buyer Guarantee means that your transaction will be safe and secure, the tickets shall be delivered prior to the event, the tickets shall be identical, comparable, or better than the tickets you ordered, and the tickets shall be valid and authentic. Your only recourse under the 100% Buyer Guarantee is compensation made in relation to the tickets.
All sales are final. If an event is canceled, We will refund the purchase price (including delivery charges, less possible restocking fees), or will issue a credit for use on a future purchase, as determined in our sole discretion (unless otherwise required by applicable law). To qualify for compensation, you must return your tickets as soon as possible, but within ten (10) business days after you receive notice offering you compensation. No compensation will be given without the original tickets, unless otherwise determined by Us in our sole discretion. Postponed or rescheduled events will not be compensated. We, in our sole discretion, will determine when an event is cancelled.
If, for reasons of maintaining social distancing or other safety reasons related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the entity putting on the event has announced a seating or attendee capacity reduction of greater than 15%, then, at our sole option, We reserve the right to cancel tickets for seating locations eliminated by the venue or to deem such event cancelled in its entirety. In the event that We deem an event cancelled in its entirety based on a reduction in capacity: (i) all outstanding orders for such event will be cancelled; and (ii) the event will be reposted for sale with the adjusted capacity and known restrictions. Any buyers whose tickets have been cancelled pursuant to this paragraph shall receive compensation for such cancellation as described above. This provision and cancellation policy, as well as all other terms relating to the COVID-19 pandemic contained in this Agreement, will also apply to any circumstances caused by any other communicable disease or illness that has or is capable of having a similar effect to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Event Dates and Times:
Event date, times, venue and subject matter may change. We are not always notified of such changes. It is your responsibility to monitor the event and to confirm any changes to the event with the entity putting on the event. In certain instances, a venue, promoter, or any entity putting on the event will require a ticket holder to relocate his or her seat or otherwise change the seating configuration in a manner beyond our control. We shall not be held responsible for any such change and will not be obligated to provide a refund or any other compensation in the event such a change occurs.
Denial of Admission:
If you have difficulty getting into an event using the ticket you purchased from Us, you are required to contact our Customer Service Department at 800-854-2196immediately for assistance. If the problem is not resolved, it is your responsibility to obtain proof from the venue of denied entry. Upon receipt of valid proof that the tickets purchased through the Site failed to provide you entry, or if We otherwise determine in our sole discretion that the ticket was invalid, your sole remedy will be to receive compensation for the cost of the ticket including all fees and delivery charges.
Delivery of Tickets:
In most cases, tickets will be delivered by the method and timeframe designated in the ticket listing. Photo ID may be required to accept delivery. For listings with no designated delivery method, tickets will typically be shipped via our preferred carrier, UPS. Tickets may not ship out immediately. In all cases, Service Provider reserves the right to deliver tickets for any order as late as one (1) hour prior to the event. Valid delivery services on the day of the event may include, in Service Provider's sole discretion, Will Call at the venue box office, email (when applicable), courier or pick up at a location outside the venue designated by Service Provider. Delivery designations, such as "e-Tickets" or "Instant Download", do not constitute guarantees of delivery any sooner than the day of the event. Typically such tickets will be delivered as designated. However, in some cases, delivery may first require additional verification or be subject to delays on behalf of the seller. It is your responsibility to contact our Customer Service Department at 800-854-2196if you do not receive tickets within 48 hours of the event. Failure to do so may disqualify you from receiving a refund for any ticket you claim was not delivered, unless failure to receive notice is waived by Us in our sole discretion.
Lost, Stolen, or Damaged Tickets
Please keep your tickets in a safe place. We are not responsible for lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed tickets and are under no obligation, and, in many instances, are not able, to replace the tickets. Please note that direct sunlight or heat can damage certain types of tickets.
As a buyer, you grant Service Provider permission to charge your credit or debit card for the purchase of tickets in the full amount of your order, including all fees and charges included at the time of checkout. Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express and PayPal are valid payment methods for purchasing tickets.
Ticket Holder Behavior Policy:
You agree to abide by all rules and policies of the venue, promoter and anyone else responsible for putting on the event. Should you fail to abide by those rules and policies, you shall be subject to all applicable penalties, including denial of admission to or removal from the event, restriction of future rights to access the venue, fines, and legal or other expenses associated therewith. Further, should any violation result in the loss of the ticket seller's season ticket rights or right to use any other tickets at that venue, or the right to purchase other tickets from that venue, you shall be held liable for all reasonable costs, expenses and losses associated with said loss including, but not limited to, all direct, indirect, vicarious, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special or punitive damages, including lost profits.
Neither the Site Owner nor the Service Provider is the official box office, or affiliated in any way with any venue, promoter, team, league or organizing group of any event for which tickets may be sold on the Site. Neither Site Owner nor Service Provider is associated with any official organizer of the events for which tickets are listed. Rather, the Site is an independent marketplace for the sale of event tickets on the secondary market and Service Provider is the platform and service provider related to secondary marketplace sales.
Changes in Terms and Conditions:
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change these Terms at any time. If We change any term or condition, said modification, revision and additional information shall be posted here and shall automatically replace the terms and conditions and become binding on all users of this site. Your continued use of the site following our posting of revised terms and conditions constitute your acceptance of the revised agreement.
We prohibit the use of the Site for any unlawful conduct. All users must comply with all local, state, federal and international laws, ordinances and regulations. By using this Site, you agree not to use any false personal information or use an invalid or unauthorized credit or debit card. You agree not to use or permit anyone to use information provided through the Site for any unlawful or unauthorized purpose.
Investigations and Consequences:
A purchaser who is the subject of a complaint or whom We believe may have violated these Terms or applicable law will be subject to investigation by Service Provider. You agree to cooperate fully in such investigation including, but not limited to, providing any and all information demanded by Service Provider. If Service Provider finds, in its sole discretion, a user: (a) is unwilling to cooperate with any investigation; (b) has engaged in any illegal, unlawful or fraudulent conduct or otherwise violated these Terms or applicable law or has acted in concert with anyone so engaged; or (c) has provided information that Service Provider is unable to authenticate or verify, Service Provider may take any action it deems appropriate, including, but not limited to, canceling orders, issuing a warning, blocking your access to the Site, preventing you from finalizing pending transactions, or exercising any other remedy available to Us (including civil, criminal or injunctive redress). You agree that monetary damages may not provide a sufficient remedy to Us for violations of these Terms and may be difficult to ascertain or calculate and you consent to injunctive or other equitable relief for such violations.
We reserve the right to report to appropriate law enforcement authorities or other relevant third parties any activity that either Service Provider or Site Owner believes, in its respective sole discretion, may in any way violate any local, state, federal or international law.

The Site and Service Provider's platform, including all Site software, databases, trademarks, logos, service marks, proprietary information and materials (and any intellectual property and other rights relating thereto) ("Our Property") is owned or licensed by Site Owner and/or Service Provider and will remain the property of the same. You acknowledge and agree that you do not acquire any ownership or licensing rights by using the site. You may not use any of Our Property in connection with any product or service that is not offered by Site or Service Provider in any manner that is likely to cause confusion with respect to Service Provider's or Site Owner's business, or in any manner that disparages Site Owner or Service Provider. Nothing contained on the Site should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel or otherwise, any license or right to use any of Our Property without the express written permission of Site Owner or Service Provider, in our respective sole discretion.

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold the Site Owner and Service Provider, and each of our respective parents, affiliates, licensors, suppliers, advertisers and sponsors, and their respective employees, consultants, agents and other representatives ("Indemnified Parties") harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, costs (including reasonable attorneys' fees) and other expenses that arise directly or indirectly out of or from: (a) your breach of any of these Terms; (b) any allegation that any information you submit or transmit to the Site infringes or otherwise violates the copyright, trademark, trade secret or other intellectual property or other rights of any third party; (c) any federal, state, or county tax obligation or amounts due or owing under any tax regulation, law, order or decree or any dispute concerning the tax status of us; (d) your acts or omissions in connection with your use of this Site; and (e) any claim brought by a third-party (a "Third Party Claim") against any of the Indemnified Parties in respect of which recovery may be sought under clauses (a) through (d) above.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You are responsible for any and all legal fees incurred by you, Site Owner or Service Provider associated with your disputed charges and chargebacks for purchases made, or tickets listed, on this Site.
Arbitration and Dispute Resolution:
You on the one hand and Site Owner and Service Provider on the other hand, each agree that any and all disputes, controversies, or claims arising out of or relating to: (i) these Terms; (ii) your use of, or access to, this Site; (iii) Site Owner's and Service Provider's services; or (iv) any tickets or other items sold or purchased through this site shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration in Chicago, Illinois, rather than in court. SPECIFICALLY, YOU HEREBY AGREE TO WAIVE ALL RIGHTS AND CLAIMS TO A TRIAL BY JURY. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this agreement to arbitrate. Customer satisfaction is our number one goal. To that end, Site Owner and Service Provider are committed to resolving disputes with its customers in a fair and efficient manner. Prior to commencing any arbitration related to this Agreement, you agree that if you have a dispute with Site Owner or Service Provider, you must first contact our Customer Service Department at 888-684-3582. If our Customer Service Department is unable to achieve a satisfactory resolution, then you must notify Us in writing about your claim by sending the accompanying form by certified mail to: OnlineCityTickets, Attn: Arbitration Department, PO Box 94, Winter Park, FL 32790. It is important that you provide as much information as possible. Our representative will respond within thirty (30) days of receiving this notice. If the matter is not resolved to your satisfaction, then you agree to begin arbitration by submitting a Demand for Arbitration to the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). You further agree that exclusive jurisdiction for any such arbitration shall be Chicago, Illinois. The Demand for Arbitration and the AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Agreement to arbitrate or the Terms is void or voidable. The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the state of Illinois. The arbitrator's award will be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in a court having jurisdiction thereof.
You can choose to reject this agreement to arbitrate. If you do not wish to be bound by this agreement to arbitrate, you must notify Us in writing within thirty (30) days of the date that you first access this site. Your written notification must include your name and address, as well as a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with Site Owner and/or Service Provider through arbitration. Written notification should be mailed by certified mail to: OnlineCityTickets, Attn: Arbitration Department, PO Box 94, Winter Park, FL 32790.
YOU ON THE ONE HAND AND SITE OWNER AND/OR SERVICE PROVIDER ON THE OTHER HAND AGREE THAT EACH MAY ONLY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING UNLESS BOTH YOU AND SITE OWNER AND/OR SERVICE PROVIDER (AS THE CASE MAY BE) ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE WAIVER IS MATERIAL AND ESSENTIAL TO THE ARBITRATION OF ANY DISPUTES BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND IS NON-SEVERABLE FROM THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE CLAIMS. IF THE WAIVER IS LIMITED, VOIDED OR FOUND UNENFORCEABLE, THEN THE PARTIES' AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE SHALL BE NULL AND VOID WITH RESPECT TO SUCH PROCEEDING, SUBJECT TO THE RIGHT TO APPEAL THE LIMITATION OR INVALIDATION OF THE WAIVER. UNLESS YOU, SITE OWNER, AND SERVICE PROVIDER COLLECTIVELY AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIMS. ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER SITE USERS.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules, unless otherwise stated in this agreement to arbitrate as set forth in these Terms. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, at your request, Site Owner and/or Service Provider (whichever is the subject of the arbitration) will pay all filing, administrative and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration. Any request for payment of fees by Site Owner and/or Service Provider should be submitted by mail to the AAA along with the Demand for Arbitration. In the event the arbitrator determines the claim you asserted in the arbitration to be frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, you agree to reimburse Site Owner or Service Provider, as the case may be, for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by Site Owner or Service Provider.
For transactions involving tickets to events in Illinois, pursuant to 815 ILCS 414/1.5(c), you, Service Provider, and Site Owner may elect to submit complaints against one another to the AAA, under its rules and procedures. Such complaints shall be decided by an independent arbitrator in accordance with these Terms and you, Service Provider and Site Owner further agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the State of Illinois for complaints involving a ticket event held in Illinois.
Service Provider or Site Owner has the right, in its respective sole discretion, to modify, suspend or discontinue any part of this Site at any time, with or without notice.

We, in our sole discretion, with or without cause, and without prior notice, may terminate your access to the Site.

You are responsible for paying any sales taxes that may be applicable.
These Terms, the use of the Site, and any sale of tickets hereunder will be governed by the laws of the state of Illinois, without reference to conflict of law principles.

The Site is owned and operated by OnlineCityTickets.com (the “Site Owner”). In addition, the Site utilizes a service provider (the “Service Provider”), which has a platform that it licenses to the Site Owner and performs services related to transactions made through the Site. The Site Owner and Service Provider are collectively referred to as “us”, “we” or “our” throughout this policy.

1. How We Collect and Use YOUR PERSONAL Information
A. What Is Personal Information? Personal information refers to information that we can use to personally identify a specific individual. Different states and countries define personal information (and similar terms, such as personal data and personally identifiable information) to include different things, but it generally includes information like your name, mailing address, email address, and phone number. It may also include your computer or mobile device IP address, if that IP address can be linked to a particular person, or geo-location information, again if that information can be used to pinpoint a specific person.
B. Providing Personal Information Is Your Choice. You are in control of whether you provide us with your personal information – you can visit and view the Site without disclosing any personal information about yourself. However, if you choose to make use of certain features of the Site, you may need to provide certain personal information to us. For example, if you choose to use the Site to purchase tickets, list tickets for sale, or otherwise post content, you will need to create an account on the Site, and will be required to enter certain personal information.
If you are not comfortable with providing information to us, you should not do so. Although that will affect your ability to use our ticket sales platform, that is your choice. If you do provide us with any personal information, you agree that it will be accurate and complete, and you understand that it is your responsibility to update your personal information as necessary to keep it current.
C. The Personal Information We Collect, Why We Collect It, and How We Use It. The amount and type of personal information we collect from you depends on your activities and use of our Site. Below, we describe the types of personal information we collect, our reasons for collecting that information, and how we use it.
Device and Browsing Information. When you visit our Site, we may collect your device IP address, referring website(s), browser and device types, and the pages that you visit. We collect this information to provide you with a more personalized Site experience. Note that although this information may be considered personal information under some laws, we do not link it to other personal information about you.
Identification and Contact Information. This is information that identifies you as an individual (like your first and last name), and information that enables us to contact you (like your email address, mailing address, or phone number). It also may include information about you, such as information about tickets purchased and how you have interacted with our Site.
We will collect this information if you create an account on our Site (which will be required if you want to list or purchase tickets), if you sign up to receive our emails, newsletters, or other promotional materials, or if you participate in any interactive services or features our Site may offer from time to time, such as contests, surveys, and other activities. We will also be provided with your name and email address if you reach out to us using our “Contact Us” features of the Site.
We collect and use this information for the purposes of (a) verifying your identity when you create an account, list tickets, make a purchase, or access certain features of our Site; (b) transacting business with you, which includes managing your account on our Site, fulfilling orders, contacting you about your purchases, conducting customer service, and seeking feedback on our products and services; (c) responding to any inquiry you send to us; and (d) subject to your right to opt out and subject to applicable law, sending you newsletters and other promotional materials.
Billing Information. If you purchase tickets using our Site, the Service Provider will collect applicable billing information from you, such as credit card or bank account information, or, depending on payment options, information about your PayPal account. The Service Provider collects and uses this information to process required payments.
D. Certain Generally-Applicable Uses of Personal Information. In addition to the specific uses described above, the personal information we collect may be used for the following additional purposes, all of which are related to our operation of our business and our provision of services:
E. How Long We Keep Personal Information. We collect personal information for as long as we continue to have a business need to do so (which will be at least as long as you continue to maintain an active account on the Site or have an open listing or purchase order pending), unless a longer period is required by law. Business needs include legal, taxation, accounting, risk management, and other business purposes.
2. HOW AND WHY WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION
We do not sell, rent, or lease any personal information that we collect about you through the Site to anyone for any purpose, other than as disclosed, unless you have given us your separate express permission to do so.
3. COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGY
Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, and we do not link the information stored in cookies to any personal information that you submit when using our Site.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies and other tracking technologies, but you can usually change your settings to prevent that, such as by having your device warn you each time a cookie is being sent or choosing to turn off all cookies. On our Site, you will be able to disable all cookies other than persistent cookies that are required when you make a purchase. This can be done through your web browser settings, and because each browser is different, you should look at your browser’s “Help” menu to learn how to modify your cookie settings.
If you do disable cookies from your browser you may not be able to access certain sections of the Site that use essential cookies, and this may make your experiences on the Site less efficient.
We cannot control any third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.
C. Do Not Track Requests. Currently, certain browsers offer a “do not track” (DNT) option. This option, using a technology known as a DNT header, sends a signal to websites visited by the user about the user’s DNT preference, if any, set on the browser. We do not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals. We cannot make this commitment because there is not a common understanding among industry groups, technology companies, or regulators about how to interpret the DNT signal.
4. Third party sites and SOCIAL SHARING FEATURES
Our Site may offer social network and similar sharing features, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and similar buttons, which let you share information related to the Site through your preferred social media platforms. If you permit a connection between our Site and your social network page(s), we (and the social network) may be able to identify you, and associate the information we (and they) receive with information we (and they) already have about you. In addition, depending on how you use those features and your settings with the social network provider(s), the information you share to your social network pages will be available to others, including your friends and/or the public. For more information about how your information may be shared through those social networks once it is provided to them, you should review the privacy policies of those social networks.
5. Our Security Measures
We use a variety of industry-standard security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information, including measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. We store the personal information you provide on secure (password- and firewall-protected) servers. All electronic financial transactions conducted through our Site are protected by encryption technology.
Unfortunately, no electronic data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we believe that we use reasonable measures to protect personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted or otherwise provided to us or received from us.
If you have an account on our Site, it is your responsibility for keeping the password confidential. We will never ask for your password (except when you create your account and log into our Site).
6. YOUR RIGHTS REGARDING Your Information

8. INTERNATIONAL USERS
Additional Information for California Residents
1. APPLICABILITY OF AND GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THIS CALIFORNIA PRIVACY NOTICE
This California Privacy Notice has been adopted to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, referred to as the “CCPA”, so any terms defined in the CCPA (such as “personal information,” “consumer,” “service provider,” “third party,” and “sale/sell”) will have the same meaning when used in this California Privacy Notice. For example, a “consumer” refers to a natural person that is a resident of the state of California.
2. THE CATEGORIES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
For purposes of the CCPA, the table below describes the categories of personal information we have collected within the last 12 months and the categories of third parties with whom we have shared that information for a business or commercial purpose.

3. INFORMATION ABOUT SALES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
In the past 12 months, we have not sold any personal information.
While the CCPA has a broad definition of what constitutes a sale of information, many types of transfers of information do not qualify as “sales” under the CCPA. We have carefully evaluated the manner in which we share information to determine that we do not sell your personal information.
As noted above, we share information with our service providers (including Service Provider) who need the information in order to perform contracted services for us. This may include transfers such as those to Service Provider as necessary to process orders for tickets, and transfers to our credit card processors to complete payments. We enter into agreements with each service provider that limit the purposes for which the personal information may be used and that require the third party to keep that personal information confidential. With these protections, these transfers are not considered “sales” under the CCPA.
4. YOUR RIGHTS AND CHOICES REGARDING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION UNDER THE CCPA
The CCPA provides California residents with certain specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights, and explains how to exercise them. Please note that your rights are subject to limitations and exceptions described in the CCPA.
If you make a request to delete your personal information, we can deny that request if we or our service providers need to keep the information to:
To exercise any of the rights described above, you must submit a verifiable consumer request to us. You can do so by:
Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you expressly authorize to act on your behalf, can make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
If you contact us to exercise your California privacy rights, you must attest to the fact that you are a California resident, and provide us with a current California address. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with information if we cannot identify you or confirm your authority to make the request, so any request will require you to provide sufficient information to allow us to reasonably verify your identity and/or the identity and authorization of your agent (if applicable). We will only use any personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requesting party’s identity or authority to make the request, by matching that information with the personal information we already have about you. If you have an account on the Site, we will also verify your identity using our standard authentication practices for your account.
We will respond to any verifiable consumer request in the manner and within the timeframes required by the CCPA.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within any 12-month period.
5. OTHER CALIFORNIA RIGHTS
In addition to the CCPA, California’s “Shine the Light” law permits California residents to request certain details about our disclosure of their personal information to third parties for those third parties’ own direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident and you would like to make such a request, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that there are legal limits on how often you can make such a request, and we are only obligated to respond to one information request per customer per year.
In addition, if any California residents under the age of 18 have used the Site, created an account, and posted content or information on the Site, they can request removal by contacting us at email@example.com, detailing where the content is posted and confirming that they posted it. Following such a request, we will terminate the unauthorized account, and will make reasonable good faith efforts to remove any post or information from public view, or anonymize it so that the minor cannot be individually identified. However, removal of public postings cannot ensure complete or comprehensive removal, as third parties may republish, archive, or cache web content in a manner that is out of our control.
