2. Your privacy Rights Under California Law
Under California law, subject to certain exceptions, California residents have the following rights with respect to their Personal Information:

Once we receive and confirm your verifiable request, which may require collection of additional information from you, we will delete and direct our service providers to delete your Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

3. How to Enforce your California Privacy Rights
If you would like to exercise your rights listed above, please send an email to info@southgeorgiaanodizing.com or call us toll-free at (866) 651-3027. You have a right not to receive discriminatory treatment by any business when you exercise your California privacy rights.
While we take measures to ensure that those responsible for receiving and responding to your requests are informed of your rights and how to help you exercise those rights, when contacting us to exercise your rights, we ask you to please adhere to the following guidelines:
Tell us which right you are exercising. Specify which right you want to exercise and the Personal Information to which your request relates (if not to you). If you are acting on behalf of another, please clearly indicate this fact and your authority to act on such consumer’s behalf.
Help us verify your identity. Provide us with information to verify your identify. Please note that if we cannot initially verify your identity, we may request additional information to complete the verification process. Any Personal Information you disclose to us for purposes of verifying your identity will solely be used for the purpose of verification.

Direct Our Response Delivery. Please provide us with an e-mail or mailing address through which we can provide our response. If you make the request by email, unless otherwise requested, we will assume that we can respond to the email address from which you made the request.
Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable request related to your Personal Information. You may also make a verifiable request on behalf of your minor child. You may only make a verifiable request for access to specific information twice within a 12-month period.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Children’s Privacy
We do not knowingly solicit or collect Personal Information online from children under the age of 13. Please contact us by emailing info@southgeorgiaanodizing.com if you believe we may have collected such information without parental or guardian consent.
