California Consumer Privacy Act (hereafter, “CCPA”) is a California privacy law that is effective as of January 1, 2020.
Under CCPA, California consumers have several added rights and privileges that serve to protect their personal information from being used in a way that the consumer does not agree with. This notice is in place to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) of 2018 that went into effect as of January 1, 2020.
A consumer has the right to request and know what categories of information and what personal information we collect, how we collect it, and for what purpose we collect it.
CONSUMER’S RIGHT TO DEMAND DISCLOSURE
You have the right to demand that we disclose what categories of information we have or are collecting about you and what personal information we have collected or are collecting about you.
In an effort to maintain full compliance, we are disclosing the categories of information that we generally collect from and/or 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
We generally collect personal information, as listed under CCPA, in the form of:
- Email address
- IP address
- Mailing address
- Payment information
We collect the consumer information stated above through the following ways:
- Directly from you (e.g. through a comment forms, when you send an email to us or when you make a purchase through our online store).
- Indirectly from you (e.g. from your browser when you visit our site)
- From third parties (e.g. from our service providers such as Google Analytics)
You have the right to request disclosure of the personal information we collected about you by submitting a verifiable request. To do so, you can contact us at [email protected] or through our contact form.
CONSUMER’S RIGHT TO REQUEST DELETION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Under CCPA, a consumer has the right to contact the business that collected personal information about the consumer and request deletion of that information.
There are certain limited circumstances under which the business does not have to comply and delete the information, as follows:
● To provide and complete the transaction for which the information was collected in the first place (for example, selling and delivering goods and services);
● To be in compliance with a legal obligation;
● To carry out and be compliant with another legal requirement; and
● To keep the information for internal use that is reasonable to the consumer.
CONSUMER’S RIGHT TO DEMAND DISCLOSURE IN CASE OF SALE
As a consumer, you have the right to request full disclosure if a business sells or transfers your personal information for a business purpose. You have the right to know what specific information has been sold or transferred, to whom, and for what business purpose.
The CCPA defines selling as “selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, a consumer’s personal information by the business to another business or a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration”.
Math, Kids and Chaos may collect IP addresses and location information to serve personalized ads and pass it to Mediavine, who manages all third-party advertising on the Website. As a consumer, you may, under the CCPA, opt out of the ‘sale’ of your information in this way. You can do so by clicking on the ‘Do not sell my information’ tab on our website.
We do not sell any other personal information we collect from consumers.
CONSUMER’S RIGHT TO REQUEST THAT A BUSINESS DOES NOT SELL THEIR INFORMATION
Under CCPA, a consumer has the right to request that a business that collected personal information about the consumer does not sell that information to anyone.
In our efforts to comply with the CCPA, you can find a “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link on our website. If and when you select “Do Not Sell My Personal Information,” you will be able to opt out.
OUR BUSINESS WILL NOT DISCRIMINATE AGAINST ANY CONSUMER
If you choose to exercise your right and request that we never sell your information, in accordance with CCPA, we will not and cannot discriminate against you for choosing to exercise your right.
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 of your choice to exercise your CCPA right to forbid the selling of your information.
SECURING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Under CCPA, a business that collects or receives personal information about a 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 do our due diligence and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices to make sure that the consumer data and private information we collect is safe and secure.
All the systems containing consumer information are password protected. Access to payment processing service accounts requires password-protected login with two-factor authentication.
We take reasonable precautions on a daily basis to protect consumer information from unauthorized use, modification, destruction, and disclosure.
If you wish to exercise your rights under CCPA and make requests for disclosure or deletion of your personal information or disclosure about sale of information, you can contact us directly and make a verifiable consumer request.
We will respond as quickly as reasonably possible. Please keep in mind that we do not have to comply with requests if you make them more than twice during a 12-month period.
In order to be able to respond to your request, we will need to be able to verify your identify to a sufficient degree of certainty.
Please make your verifiable requests by contacting us at [email protected] or by contacting us through our contact page.
EFFECTIVE AS OF 25 September 2020.
