5. Consumer Rights

You have the right to request that we disclose to you (i) the categories of personal information we collected about you and the categories of sources from which we collected such information; (ii) the specific pieces of personal information we collected about you; (iii) the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information about you; and (iv) the categories of personal information about you that we sold or disclosed for a business purpose and the categories of third parties to whom we sold or to whom we disclosed for a business purpose such information in the preceding 12 months.

You have the right to request that we delete personal information we collected from you subject to certain exceptions.

You have the right to “opt out” of your personal information being sold to certain third parties.  This right can be exercised by submitting a Do Not Sell My Personal Information request.

You also have the right to not be discriminated against in pricing and services because you exercise any of your rights under the CCPA. LNRS does not offer financial incentives or price or service differences to consumers in exchange for the retention or sale of a consumer’s personal information.

For personal information subject to the CCPA, the information of consumers less than 16 years of age may not be sold, unless the consumer, in the case of consumers at least 13 years of age and less than 16 years of age, or the consumer’s parent or guardian, in the case of consumers who are less than 13 years of age, has affirmatively authorized the sale of the consumer’s personal information.

6. How to Make a Request

You may make a request for the disclosures, opt-out, or deletion described above through our California Consumer Privacy Act Homepage.

You may be required to submit proof of your identity for these requests to be processed. We may not be able to comply with your request if we are unable to confirm your identity or to connect the information you submit in your request with personal information in our possession. You may designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf subject to proof of identity and authorization.

We will respond to your request consistent with the CCPA, which does not apply to certain information, such as information made available from government records, certain data subject to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) and certain other laws, and where its application is preempted by, or in conflict with, federal law or the United States or California Constitution.

7. Changes

We will update this CCPA Notice from time to time. Any changes will be posted on this page with an updated revision date.
