Your Option Regarding Information About You, and How to Exercise Your Options
Under California law, you have the right to request that we disclose what personal information we collect, use, disclose, and sell. We want to respect your wishes, and we have established processes by which you can exercise your options regarding information that we have collected from you. To exercise your options as described in this Privacy Statement, you may contact us in one of four ways: by telephone at +1-949-367-9375,by sending an email request to email@example.com, or by post at: Smart Systems Technologies, Inc., 9 Goodyear, Irvine, CA 92618. To effectively exercise your privacy options, you must use one of these Communication Methods.
This list describes the types of requests you may make to us regarding information we have collected from you:
- Request to Know: You may ask us to furnish you with (i) the categories and specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you; (ii) the categories of sources from which we collect information about you; (iii) the business or commercial purposes for collecting information about you; and (iv) the categories of third parties with whom we share (or have shared in the prior 12 months) personal information about you.
- Request to Delete: You may ask us to delete any personal information about you that we have collected from you and to direct our service providers to delete your personal information from their records. After verifying your request, we will comply as further described below, unless we determine that there is a lawful basis for retaining the information, including because the information is necessary to: (i) complete a transaction or perform a contract between us; (ii) ensure security; (iii) debug or repair errors; (iv) exercise a legal right; (v) comply with another law or a legal obligation; (vi) conduct research; (vii) enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with our consumer’s reasonable expectations; (viii) otherwise use the information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information.
- Opt-Out of Sale: You may request that we not sell your personal information in the future, if you wish, and we will honor your request.
We will make commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate your request within 45 days; however, we may notify you during the initial 45 day period that we will extend the timeframe by up to 45 additional days, if an extension is reasonably necessary in order to fulfill your request. We will fulfill the same request from you up to two times in any twelve-month period, but we are not able to fulfill redundant requests more frequently than that.
We will not discriminate against you because you have made a request described in this Privacy Statement or otherwise exercised your rights under applicable law. We may offer financial incentives or offer you a different price, level, or quality of goods or services in connection with programs that require you to disclose certain personal information, but only if you opt in to such an incentive program. If you opt in to any such incentive program, you make revoke your consent to share your personal information at any time, as described in the terms and conditions of those programs.
How Will You Verify My Identity?
For your privacy and security, and to prevent fraud and other harmful activities, when we receive a request through one of the Communication Methods, we need to ensure that the person submitting the request is the person they purport to be. Accordingly, we may take reasonable measures to verify the identity of the person submitting the request. Verification is typically a two-step process. First, we ask you to provide identifying information when you submit a request, whether through our web form, toll-free telephone number, mail, or other approved Communication Method. This information will include your first name, middle name, last name, email address, shipping address and telephone number. Providing accurate information that matches our records is the first step in helping us to identify the correct information, verify the validity of the request, and protect your data. In the second step of verification, we may ask you to submit evidence proving your identity. You may submit this information along with your request or after your request. The evidence we may request from you, and the degree of certainty we will be required to reach regarding your identity and the authenticity of your request, will depend upon the nature of your request, the nature of the information we have about you, and your ability to furnish information. For requests of specific pieces of personal information about a consumer, we will verify your identity to a reasonably high degree of certainty; whereas for requests to know the categories of personal information collected and used about a consumer, we will verify identity to a reasonable degree of certainty. We may ask you to submit a signed statement and a redacted copy of identifying information (such as a government-issued ID), or to submit a signed, notarized statement. If we ask you to verify your identity, you must promptly cooperate with our efforts so that we can fulfill your request. If you do not comply, your request cannot be fulfilled; and if you delay in complying, the fulfillment of your request is likely to be delayed as a result.
What About Requests from Authorized Agents?
If you submit a consumer privacy request on behalf of another person, you will be required to demonstrate your legal authority to act on behalf of that person, and we may contact you for verification purposes. For the protection of our customers, you must furnish all information requested and must demonstrate your authority to our satisfaction before we can fulfill your request.

Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control.

Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices, should a data breach occur, we will notify all site users via an in-site notification within 7 business days of discovering the breach.
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

- We will not use false or misleading subject lines or email addresses in email communications;
