Statutory Compliance

Your California Privacy Rights

If you are a resident of California, the CCPA grants you the following specific rights regarding your Personal Information. In compliance with California law, we provide California residents with certain information and access upon request. Please be aware that not all information sharing is covered by these requirements and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response.

— Right to Know

You have the right to submit a verifiable consumer request (“Consumer Request”) that we disclose the following to you in a readily useable format covering the 12 month period preceding your request:

  1. The categories of Personal Information we have collected about you;
  2. The categories of data collection sources of the Personal Information we have collected about you;
  3. Our business or commercial purpose(s) for collecting Personal Information;
  4. The categories of third parties with whom we share Personal Information;
  5. The specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you; and
  6. The categories of Personal Information we have disclosed for a business purpose.

We are not required to retain any information about you if it is only used for a one-time transaction and would not be maintained in the ordinary course of business. We also are not required to reidentify Personal Information if it is not already stored in the manner above, nor are we required to provide the Personal Information to you more than twice in a 12 month period.

If you would like to know if we have disclosed Personal Information about you to specific third parties, you may also email contact us at nwyc.com/support to receive information about the categories of Personal Information that we disclosed to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. You may receive the names and addresses of those third parties, and you may request this information for the year prior to your request. Note that these particular requests may only be made once per calendar year. Additionally, please be aware that only sharing activities required by California law will be included in our response to your Consumer Request.

— Right to Opt Out

In response to your written request, we will provide you with a notice describing the cost-free means to opt-out of our sharing your Personal Information with third parties with whom we do not share the same brand name, if the third-party will use such information for its direct marketing purposes.

— Right to Request Deletion

You have the right to request that we delete any Personal Information that we have collected from you and direct service providers to do the same. However, we are not required to comply with a request to delete, if it is necessary for us to retain the Personal Information in order to:

  1. Complete the transaction for which we collected the Personal Information;
  2. Provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you;
  3. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent or illegal activity, take all necessary and appropriate steps to mitigate current and future risk or prosecute those responsible for such activities;
  4. Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality;
  5. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise his or her free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law;
  6. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.);
  7. 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;
  8. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us;
  9. Comply with legal obligations; or
  10. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
— Right to Non-Discrimination

You have the right to be free from discrimination when you exercise your consumer rights under the CCPA, including by us not:

  1. Denying you goods or Services;
  2. Charging you a different price or rate for goods or Services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties;
  3. Providing you a different level of quality of goods or Services; or
  4. Suggesting that you may receive a different rate for goods or Services or a difference level or quality of goods or Services.

In order to exercise your rights, you must submit a Consumer Request, which must then be verified. Generally, in order to verify your requests, we will compare the Personal Information we have about you to pieces of Personal Information we will request in the course of processing your request. The Personal Information required for verification may include your name, email address, phone number, shipping address, or the date of your last purchase from us. We will deliver a response to you within 45 days of receiving the verifiable Consumer Request. Verifiable Consumer Requests may be submitted through one of the following methods:

  • Call us at (214) 342-0299; or
  • Submit a request via email at nwyc.com/support entitled “Consumer Request.”

You may appoint an authorized agent to submit Consumer Requests on your behalf. Should you choose to do so, for your and our protection, we will require you to verify your identity directly with us and directly confirm that you have provided the authorized agent permission to submit the Consumer Request. Should your authorized agent fail to submit proof that he or she have been authorized to act on your behalf, we will deny the Consumer Request.
