Your Rights and Choices
The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information, including the rights of access, data portability and deletion.
If you are a California resident and we, as a service provider, have processed personal information about you on behalf of our customers, and you wish to exercise your CCPA rights, you are requested to inquire with our customer directly.
If you wish to make your request directly to us, please provide the name of our customer on whose behalf we processed your personal information. We will refer your request to that customer and will support them to the extent required by CCPA or other applicable California privacy laws in responding to your request. You may submit a verifiable consumer request to us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collect personal information or an authorized representative.

We endeavor to respond to a consumer request within sixty (60) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.

HealthEC does not engage in the sale of personal information to third parties. Notwithstanding, you have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information at any time (the "right to opt-out"). Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales may optout of future sales at any time.
To exercise the right to optout, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us by emailing us at email@example.com.
Once you make an opt-out request, you may change your mind and opt back into personal information sales at any time by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
