Your Rights and Choices
The CCPA provides consumers with specific rights regarding their Personal Information. This section describes such rights and explains how to exercise them.

Right to Know About Personal Information. You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection, disclosure, sale and use of your Personal Information. Once we receive and verify your request, we will disclose to you the following (to the extent applicable to your request):

    • The categories of Personal Information we collected about you in the (12) months since the Last Update;
    • Specific pieces of Personal Information we collected about you in the twelve (12) months since the Last Update (also known as a data portability request);
    • The categories of sources from which we collected such Personal Information;
    • The Business Purpose for collecting that Personal Information about you; and
    • The categories of Personal Information we disclosed or sold for a Business Purpose and the categories of recipients to whom the Personal Information was disclosed or sold.

Right to Request Deletion. You have the right to request that we delete the Personal Information we have collected from you or maintain about you, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and verify your request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies.

Right to Opt-Out of the Sale of Personal Information. In the twelve (12) months preceding the Last Update, we have not sold your Personal Information. If you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right, at any time, to direct us to not sell your Personal Information (the “right to opt-out”) should we begin to do so. We will not knowingly sell the Personal Information of children under the age of 16, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “right to opt-in”) from either (i) the consumer who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or (ii) the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age. Consumers who opt-in to Personal Information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time.

To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us by clicking Do Not Sell My Personal Information. Once you make an opt-out request, we will not ask you to reauthorize Personal Information sales for at least twelve (12) months. However, you may change your mind and opt back in to Personal Information sales at any time by sending us an email making this request to privacy@horizon-brands.com.

You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your opt-out rights. We will only use Personal Information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request.

Right to Non-Discrimination. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. We will not (i) deny you products or services, (ii) charge you different prices or rates for products or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties (except for financial incentives permitted by the CCPA, see below), (iii) provide you a different level or quality of products or services, and (iv) suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for products or services or a different level or quality of products or services.

Notice on Financial Incentives. We may offer you certain financial incentives permitted under the CCPA for the collection, sale or deletion of your Personal Information that may result in different prices, rates, or quality levels, provided that: (i) the financial incentive is reasonably related to the value of your Personal Information and (ii) we provide you 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. Details about specific financial incentives such as materials terms, the Categories of Personal Information implicated, how you may opt-in to the incentive program, how you may exercise the right to withdraw, and a good faith estimate of the value of the data shall be disclosed to you at or before you opt-in to such financial incentives and provide Personal Information. 

Right to Designate an Authorized Agent. If you submit a request to know, delete or opt-out of the sale of your Personal Information through the use of an authorized agent, we may require that you (i) provide the authorized agent written permission to act on your behalf, and (ii) verify their identity directly with us. We may deny a request from an authorized agent that does not submit proof of authorization.

Submitting a Request to Know or Delete under the CCPA
. To exercise the rights to know or request deletion described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either: (a) visiting [WEBFORM] or (b) submitting your request by email to privacy@horizon-brands.com. You may only make a verifiable consumer request under the right to know twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must: (i) provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or an authorized representative; and (ii) describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. 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 related to you.

Verification Process and Required Information. We may need to request additional information from you to verify your identity or understand the scope of your request, although you will not be required to create an account with us to submit a request or have it fulfilled. We will require you to provide, at a minimum, your email address, full name, billing address (with zip code) and phone number, and some access requests may require (if you have made a purchase with us) that you identify some items ordered. If we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Personal Information relates to you, we will deny the consumer request in whole or in part and will not to disclose the information requested or, as applicable, will not delete the information requested. We will respond to any such consumer request with a denial, and will also explain why it has no reasonable method by which it can verify the identity of the requestor.

There may be information that is designated as Personal Information under the CCPA but this information, on its own, does not allow us to identify you in our systems—for example, search or browsing history. If this information is the only information we have collected on you, we will notify you that you are unidentifiable to us and we will be unable to comply with your request.

Response Timing and Format. We will confirm receipt of a verifiable consumer request within then (10) business days of its receipt. We will endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) calendar days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will notify you of the extension and provide an explanation of the reason for the extension in writing, and we will provide you with a response no later than ninety (90) calendar days of receipt of the request. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically. 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 useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance. We may charge a reasonable fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer requests if they are excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will inform you of the reasons for this decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Other California Privacy Rights
