Supplementary Information for California Consumers
If you are located in California, you may have rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”). The CCPA requires Venntel to provide California consumers with certain information about the processing of their “personal information” and rights available to them with respect to such personal information.
The CCPA defines “personal information” as “any information that directly or indirectly identifies, relates to, describes, or can be associated with or reasonably linked to a California resident or household” including, name, address, mobile device identifiers, precise location data, IP and cookie identifiers, inferences, and biometric data.
The following table discloses what categories of “personal information” (as defined by the CCPA) we have collected from or about California consumers within the last twelve (12) months:

Your Rights in Connection with Personal Information
The CCPA grants you a number of rights (subject to certain exceptions) with respect to your personal information that companies may hold about you. Each of your rights is outlined in more detail below:
How to Exercise your Rights
In order to exercise any of the rights described above, please contact us by either:
We may need to request specific and/or additional information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access or delete your personal information. This is a security measure designed to prevent the disclosure of your personal information to a person who has no right to receive it. We will only use this information to verify your identity or authority to make the request. An authorized agent submitting a request on behalf of a consumer must demonstrate that the consumer provided written permission, signed by the consumer authorizing the agent to act on the consumer’s behalf. For requests for information and deletion, Venntel may require that the consumer verify its own identify directly with Venntel and directly confirm that the consumer provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request.
We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. We will not charge you a fee for access to your personal information (or to exercise any of your other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, excessive, or manifestly unfounded, or we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We will not be obligated to respond to more than 2 requests for data access/data portability in a 12-month period. Any responses will cover the 12-month period preceding your request.
If you have opted out of the sale of your personal information, you may change your mind and opt back in at any time by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CCPA prohibits discrimination against California consumers for exercising their rights under the CCPA and imposes requirements on any financial incentives offered to California consumers related to their personal information. Venntel will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.
