Your Rights and Choices
The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
- Access Rights: You have the right to request that Alpine disclose what personal information about you it collects, uses, discloses, and sells.
- Deletion Request Rights: You have the right to request that Alpine delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions.
To exercise the access and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by emailing Us at: email@example.com
Only you, or a person 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. Upon submitting a request, we will attempt to verify your identity by matching the identifying information provided by you (or your authorized representative) to the personal information already maintained by us. The type of information you must provide depends on the type of request you make. Alternatively, we may use a third party verification service to verify your identity. You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. 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 that the personal information relates to you.
- The Right to Opt-Out/Opt-In to Sale of Your Personal Information:
We do not knowingly sell personal information. We allow third parties to set cookies on our website to provide us with business services. However, we aim to provide users with control over the collection and use of personal information. As a result, we have provided options for you to opt-out of the collection and disclosure of personal information. Please see our Cookie Notice for more information.
- The Right Against Discrimination: You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by Alpine for the exercise of the privacy rights conferred by the CCPA.
If you are using an authorized agent to submit a request to know or request to delete, you must provide the authorized agent written permission to do so. Written permission must be submitted to Alpine as part of the verification process and the agent must also verify their own identity with us using the verification methods described above. We may deny requests from an agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by the consumer to act on their behalf.
