Your California Privacy Rights

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) provides California residents with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights

California resident users have the right to request that Donaldson Legal Counseling PLLC, disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past twelve months. Once the verifiable consumer request is received and confirmed, we will disclose:.

  • The categories of personal information collected about you
  • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also known as the data portability request.)
  • If we sold or disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing:
    • Sales, identifying the personal information categories that each category or recipient purchased; and
    • Disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category or recipient obtained.

The Company will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

  • Deny you goods and services
  • Charge you different rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties
  • Provide you a different level or quality of goods and services
  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods and services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

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.

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

  • Calling at (301) 332-2354

You, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize 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 twelve-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

The Company 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 not consider requests made through your password protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account.

We only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits users of our Website that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to admin@dlcesq.com.
