If you are a resident of the states of California, Colorado, Virginia, or another state that has passed similar comprehensive privacy legislation, your state’s privacy protections extend to your use of the Service. Throughout this Privacy Notice you will find information required by such state laws regarding the categories of personal information collected from you, the purposes for which we use personal information, and the categories of third parties your data may be shared with. This information is current as of the date of the Notice and is applicable in the 12 months preceding the effective date of the Notice.
Your state law may provide you with certain rights with regard to your personal information. These rights may include the following:
- Right to know;
- Right to access;
- Right to delete
- Right to correct;
- Right to data portability; and
- Right to opt-out of or limit certain uses, processing, and or disclosure.
As a resident of California, Colorado, Virginia, or another state that has passed similar comprehensive privacy legislation, your state law provides you the ability to make inquiries regarding your personal information. Specifically, the degree to which this information is not already provided in this Privacy Notice or through some other means, you have the right to request disclosure about the collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months, including:
- The categories of personal information collected about you.
- The categories of sources for the personal information collected about you.
- The business or commercial purpose for collecting your personal information.
- The categories of third parties with whom your personal information was shared.
- The specific pieces of personal information collected about you.
- If your personal information was disclosed for a business purpose, the personal information categories disclosed and the categories of third parties to which the information was disclosed.
- If your personal information was sold in the past 12 months, the personal information categories sold and the categories of third parties to which the information was sold.
Requests you make regarding your personal information collected and retained may be subject to certain exceptions. Amplifon will inform you of such exceptions in its response to your request. If Amplifon is selling, re-selling, or otherwise distributing your personal information in exchange for monetary compensation, advertising, or other purposes, you may have the right to opt-out or limit such sales or disclosures. However, at this time, Amplifon does not sell, re-sell, distribute for re-sale, or share, as that term is defined in applicable legislation, your personal information. Finally, you have the right to not receive discriminatory treatment by Amplifon or any business for exercising any of the rights provided under your state law.
If we receive a request from you, we will first make a determination regarding the applicability of your state’s law, and we will then take steps to verify your identity prior to responding. The steps to verify your identity may vary based on our relationship with you, but, at a minimum, it will take the form of confirming and matching the information submitted in the request with information already held by Amplifon and/or contacting you through previously used channels to confirm that you submitted the request (i.e. confirming identity through contact information that we have on file, not the contact information submitted to make the request).
Depending on your jurisdiction, you may make requests regarding your data one to two times a year, free of charge. However, Amplifon may charge a reasonable fee or deny a request that is considered manifestly unfounded or excessive. Amplifon will respond to your request within 45 days, unless the law states a different time period and/or the law provides for an extension, which Amplifon will inform you of a need for extended time to respond. If for any reason your request is denied, Amplifon will provide a “no action” explanation within the 45-day period. If your jurisdiction offers you a right to appeal such denial, you will be informed of your right to appeal that decision.
