The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you:
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. 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.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by:
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
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.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. However, we do consider requests made through your password protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account.
We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
Authorized Agents. Only the consumer or an Authorized Agent may make a verifiable consumer request related to their Personal Information. An "Authorized Agent" is a person, or a business entity that is registered with the California Secretary of State, that consumers have authorized to act on their behalf or an individual granted authority under a written power of attorney issued pursuant to California Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465.
If you are an Authorized Agent who wishes to submit a request to know, a request to delete, or a request to opt-out on behalf of another consumer, please submit to us sufficient information to allow us to verify your identity to a reasonably high degree of certainty and either:
We may deny a request from an Authorized Agent who does not submit adequate proof that they have been authorized by the consumer to act on the consumer's behalf. We may also contact the consumer directly to confirm their identity and that they provided you permission to submit the request on the consumer's behalf.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) calendar days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 45 more calendar days), we will inform you of the reason and 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 a 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 verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the 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
Under California law, if you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right to opt-out of the sale of your personal information at any time (the "right to opt-out"). Consumers between age 13 and age 16 and parents of consumers under age 13 must give affirmative authorization (the right to "opt-in") for any personal information sales. Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time. NGC does not sell the personal information of its consumers, including any minors under 16 years of age.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.
However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information's value and contain written terms that describe the program's material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
We reserve the right to amend this privacy notice at our discretion and at any time. When we make changes to this privacy notice, we will post the updated notice on our Sites and update the notice's effective date. Your continued use of any of our Sites following the posting of changes constitutes your acceptance of such changes.
If you have any questions or comments about this notice, the ways in which NGC collects and uses your information described here and in the General Privacy Notice your choices and rights regarding such use, or wish to exercise your rights under California law, please do not hesitate to contact us at:
