Your Right to Request the Deletion of California Information

Upon your request, we will delete the California Information we have collected about you, except for situations when that information is necessary for us to: provide you with a product or service that you requested; perform a contract we entered into with you; maintain the functionality or security of our systems; comply with or exercise rights provided by the law; or use the information internally in ways that are compatible with the context in which you provided the information to us, or that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with us.

How to Exercise Your California Rights

You may exercise your rights to request the access to or deletion of your California Information by visiting our Privacy Center. You can also contact us toll free at 833-WB-PRVCY (833-927-7829) or TTY: 833-PRVCY-TT (833-778-2988) and an agent will assist you with submitting a request. These requests are generally free.

When you submit a request, we will usually ask you to provide an email address which we will contact to confirm the request was not fraudulently submitted.

In addition, for access and deletion requests, we will use a third-party verification service to confirm that you are who you say you are. Our verification service does this by matching information you provide against information held about you in its records, or, if necessary, by allowing you to submit documents proving your identity.

If you are the parent of a child under 13 years of age, you may also submit a request on behalf of your child. In that event, we will ask you to provide your child’s email address, to verify your identity, and to submit a signed form authorizing us to proceed with the request regarding your child’s California Information.

You may also designate an authorized agent to submit a request on your behalf. To do so, we will require either (1) a valid power of attorney, or (2) signed written permission from you. In the event your authorized agent is relying on signed written permission, we may also need to verify your identity and/or contact you directly to confirm permission to proceed with the request.

Your authorized agent can make a request by contacting us toll free at 833-WB-PRVCY (833-927-7829) or TTY: 833-PRVCY-TT (833-778-2988).

Our Support for the Exercise of Your Data Rights

You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment if you exercise any of the rights explained in this section of the Privacy Policy. We are committed to providing you control over your California Information, we will not disadvantage you if you choose to exercise your rights.

California Consumers Under 16 Years Old

CCPA has specific rules regarding the use of California Information from consumers under 16 years of age. In particular, consistent with the CCPA, if we knowingly collect the California Information of a consumer under the age of 16, we will not sell the information unless we receive affirmative permission to do so. If the consumer is between the ages of 13 and 16 years of age, the consumer may provide that permission; if the consumer is under the age of 13, the consumer’s parent or guardian must provide the permission. As of the “Last Updated” date of this Privacy Policy, we do not have actual knowledge that we sell California Information of consumers under 16 years of age.
