Important Information for California Residents

This section applies only to California residents.  It describes how we collect, use and share Personal Information of California residents in operating our business, and their rights with respect to that Personal Information.  For purposes of this section, “Personal Information” has the meaning given in the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) but does not include information exempted from the scope of the CCPA. 

Your California privacy rights. As a California resident, you have the rights listed below. However, these rights are not absolute, and in certain cases we may decline your request as permitted by law.

·       Information.  You can request the following information about how we have collected and used your Personal Information during the past 12 months:

o   The categories of Personal Information that we have collected.

o   The categories of sources from which we collected Personal Information.

o   The business or commercial purpose for collecting and/or selling Personal Information.

o   The categories of third parties with whom we share Personal Information.

o   The categories of third parties to whom the Personal Information was sold or disclosed for a business purpose.

o   The business or commercial purpose for collecting and/or selling Personal Information.

·       Access.  You can request a copy of the Personal Information that we have collected about you during the past 12 months. 

·       Deletion.  You can ask us to delete the Personal Information that we have collected from you.

·       Opt-out of sales.  In the unlikely event that we were sell your Personal Information, you can opt-out.  In addition, if you direct us not to sell your Personal Information, we will consider it a request pursuant to California’s “Shine the Light” law to stop sharing your personal information covered by that law with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

·       Opt-in.  If we know that you are younger than 16 years old, we will ask for your permission (or if you are younger than 13 years old, your parent’s or guardian’s permission) to sell your Personal Information before we do so.

·       Nondiscrimination.  You are entitled to exercise the rights described above free from discrimination. This means that we will not penalize you for exercising your rights by taking actions such as denying you services; increasing the price/rate of services; decreasing service quality; or suggesting that we may penalize you as described above for exercising your rights.  

How to exercise your rights

You may exercise your California privacy rights described above as follows:

·       Right to information, access and deletion. You can request to exercise your information, access and deletion rights by:

o   emailing privacy@kidzsportshub.com  

·       Right to opt-out of the “sale” of your Personal Information.  We do not sell your Personal Information in the conventional sense (i.e., for money).  However, like many companies, we use services that help deliver interest-based ads to you.  California law classifies our use of these services as a “sale” of your Personal Information to the companies that provide the services. This is because we allow them to collect information from our website users (e.g., online identifiers and browsing activity) so they can help serve ads more likely to interest you. You can request to opt-out out of this “sale” of your personal information here: Do Not Sell My Personal Information.

We cannot process your request if you do not provide us with sufficient detail to allow us to understand and respond to it.

We will need to verify your identity to process your information, access and deletion requests and reserve the right to confirm your California residency.  To verify your identity, we may require you to log into your  account (if applicable), provide government identification, give a declaration as to your identity under penalty of perjury and/or provide additional information.  Your authorized agent may make a request on your behalf upon our verification of the agent’s identity and our receipt of a copy of valid power of attorney given to your authorized agent pursuant to California Probate Code Sections 4000-4465.  If you have not provided your agent with such a power of attorney, you must provide your agent signed permission to exercise your CCPA rights on your behalf, provide the information we request to verify your identity, and provide us with written confirmation that you have given the authorized agent permission to submit the request. Authorized agents are required by California law to implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices to protect their clients’ information.
