Once we receive your request and confirm your identity, we will review your request to see if an exception allowing us to retain the information applies. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
- Complete the transaction for which we collected the Personal Information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
- Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
- Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
- Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
- Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 seq.).
- Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
We will delete or deidentify Personal Information not subject to one of these exceptions from our records and will direct our service providers to take similar action.

Response Timing and Format
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels.

Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
We maintain administrative, technical, and other safeguards designed to prevent unauthorized access to, use of, or disclosure of Personal Information. We use reasonable technological processes and security measures to protect the Website. Even with the best technology, no website is perfectly secure against an authorized intrusion or access of Personal Information we collect and maintain.
When you place orders through the Website, all of your order information (including Personal Information, such as a credit card number) is transmitted through the internet using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt and secure order data before sending it to a secure server. This technology is designed to prevent someone other than us or a service provider with which we engage from capturing and viewing your Personal Information. If your web browser cannot support this level of security, you will not be able to order products through the Website.
