Your California Consumer Privacy Rights

Section 1798.83 of the CA Civil Code known as the ‘Shine the Light’ Law, requires any operator of a website to permit its California-resident customers to request and obtain from the operator a list of what personal information the operator disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes, for the preceding calendar year; and the addresses and names of such third parties. Qurium Solutions does not share any personal information collected from this site with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

Section 1798.100 et seq. known as the ‘California Consumer Privacy Act’ (CCPA) grants consumers various privacy rights to their personal information including rights to request a business to disclose what personal information it collects, sells and discloses about them, the right to request deletion of personal information a business collects, right to opt-out of the sale of the personal information to a third party, as well as the right not to be discriminated against for exercising their rights. To make a consumer privacy request, a business must provide a means to submit the request and once received, the business must verify it. The CCPA mandates that a business separately disclose (list) the categories of personal information it collects, sells and discloses about consumers during the past 12 months. Once verified, a business must respond to the consumer request within a 45 day period (unless extended) with categories of personal information collected, sold or disclosed about the consumer matched as closely as possible against the lists. For personal information collected, the business must also respond with specific pieces of personal information.

To submit a request, contact Qurium Solutions at privacy@supplier.io or 800-536-6046
