The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) provides California residents rights regarding the collection and use of their personal information, subject to certain exceptions. An authorized party may submit requests on your behalf. The authorized party must provide a valid power of attorney, or proof of registration with the California Secretary of State as an authorized agent on your behalf.
Generally, California residents have the following rights:

CCPA applies to California residents only. For purposes of CCPA, a California resident is a person who currently lives in California, or is domiciled in California but is outside of the state for a temporary or transitory purpose. The rights described above do not apply to residents of other U.S. states or persons who reside outside of the United States.
There are certain activities, information, and circumstances involving the collection, use, processing, sale, or disclosure of personal information that are exempt or excluded from CCPA. CCPA exemptions and exclusions include, but are not limited to:
Personal information collected or sold if every aspect of the commercial transaction takes place wholly outside of California.
Deidentified or aggregate consumer information.
GLBA:The CCPA does not apply to personal information collected, processed, sold or disclosed pursuant to Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and its implementing regulations (GLBA). GLBA is the federal law that regulates the collection, disclosure, and safeguarding of individuals' nonpublic personal information who obtain financial products or services primarily for personal, family, or household purposes from a financial institution. For example, if you are a California resident and you have a personal financial product with us, such as a personal credit card, the CCPA rights do not apply to the personal information associated with that account. There are other types of personal information that are not covered by the rights and limitations in the CCPA.
Business-to-Business Relationships: Until January 1, 2021, CCPA access and deletion requests do not apply to personal information that (1) reflects written or verbal communications or transactions between TC and you, and (2) was collected while you were acting in the capacity of an employee, owner, officer, director, or contractor of a company, in the context of TC's business relationship with that company. For these purposes, a company includes sole proprietors, partnerships, non-profits, and government entities.
Employment Related Activity: Until January 1, 2021, CCPA access, opt out, and deletion requests do not apply to personal information that is (1) collected about you in the course of acting as a former or current job applicant, employee, owner, director, officer, or contractor of TC, and (2) used solely in the context of that role. This exemption also applies to personal information of others collected in the course of your acting in one of these roles, if it is your emergency contact information or necessary to administer your benefits.
You will not receive a confirmation to a request to opt-out. Consistent with applicable law, we will opt you out of sales at your request.
Third-party sites may have different Privacy and Security policies than TrademarkCounsels. You should review the Privacy and Security policies of any third-party website before you provide personal or confidential information.
You will receive a response to your verified request within 45 days of submission, unless we notify you prior to the 45 days that the delivery date of response will be extended by an additional 45 days. Along with the response to the verified request, you will receive a copy of certain information TC has collected on you during the 12 months immediately preceding the date of your verified request. This will include any information provided in your verified consumer request form. TC is not obligated to provide a response more than twice in a 12-month period; this period begins upon your submission of the verified consumer request.
Consistent with applicable law, we will delete your personal information in response to your request.
