1-800-Dentist will verify the California Resident's identity by either matching the identifying information provided by the California Resident to the personal information of the California Resident already maintained by 1-800 Dentist, or use a third-party identity verification service that complies with the requirements of CCPA. In the event 1-800-Dentist cannot verify the identity of the California Resident from the information already maintained by 1-800-Dentist, 1-800-Dentist may request additional information from the California Resident which shall only be used for the purposes of verifying the identity of the California Resident seeking to exercise their rights under the CCPA, and for security or fraud-prevention purposes. To the extent possible, 1-800-Dentist will avoid collecting the types of personal information identified in CCPA Civil Code section 1798.81.5(d), unless necessary for the purpose of verifying the California Resident. Reasonable security measures to protect California Resident personal information will be employed by 1-800-Dentist in collecting, administering and responding to all verifiable requests from California Residents.
Only a California Resident or its agent, defined as a person registered with the California Secretary of State that a California Resident authorizes to act on its behalf, may make a verifiable request. Verifiable requests from California Residents or their agents shall be submitted to 1-800-Dentist by either:
A verifiable request only applies to personal information concerning California Residents which is maintained by 1-800-Dentist within the 12-month period preceding a California Resident's verifiable request. The verifiable request must: (i) Provide sufficient information that allows 1-800-Dentist to reasonably verify California Resident is the person about whom 1-800-Dentist collected personal information or an authorized agent; and (ii) Describe the request with sufficient detail that allows 1-800-Dentist to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. 1-800-Dentist cannot respond to a California Resident's verifiable request or provide California Resident or authorized agent with personal information if 1-800- Dentist cannot verify the California Resident's identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to California Resident. 1-800-Dentist will only use personal information provided in a verifiable request to verify the California Resident's identity or authority to make the request. California Resident is not required to create an account with 1-800-Dentist as a condition of making a verifiable request.
1-800-Dentist endeavors to respond to a California Resident's verifiable request within forty-five (45) days of receipt. 1-800-Dentist will acknowledge receipt of a California Resident's request within ten (10) days and provide information concerning how the request will be processed by 1-800-Dentist and when the California Resident should expect a response, except in instances where 1-800-Dentist has already granted or denied the request. If 1-800-Dentist requires additional time (an additional forty-five (45) days up to ninety (90) days total), 1-800 Dentist will inform California Resident of the reason and extension period in writing. 1-800-Dentist's response will also explain the reasons it cannot comply with a request, if applicable. Any part of a verifiable request from a California Resident that can be complied with will be complied with 1-800-Dentist. For example, 1-800-Dentist is not required to provide a California Resident with access to specific pieces of personal information if the disclosure creates a substantial, articulable, and unreasonable risk to the security of that personal information, the California Resident's account with the business, or the security of the business’s systems or networks. 1-800 is prohibited under the CCPA from disclosing a California Resident's Social Security number, driver’s license number or other government-issued identification number, financial account number, any health insurance or medical identification number, an account password, or security questions and answers in response to a verifiable request for access from California residents or their authorized agents. If California Resident who submitted the verifiable request has an existing account on file with 1-800-Dentist, 1-800-Dentist may deliver its written response to that account. If a California Resident who submitted the verifiable request does not have an account on file, 1-800-Dentist will deliver its written response via mail or electronically to the California Resident. Responses provided by 1-800-Dentist to California Residents electronically shall be portable and, to the extent technically feasible, in a readily useable format.
1-800-Dentist does not charge a fee to process or respond to California Residents verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded, in particular because of a repetitive character i.e. more than twice in a twelve (12) month period for any individual California Resident. If 1-800-Dentist determines that the request warrants a fee, 1-800-Dentist will inform a California Resident why it made that decision and provide California Resident with a reasonable cost estimate before completing the request or 1-800-Dentist may refuse to act on the request, and 1-800-Dentist will notify the California Resident of the reason for refusing the request.
1-800-Dentist will not discriminate against California Residents for exercising any of their CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, 1-800-Dentist will not:
However, 1-800-Dentist may offer California Residents certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive 1-800-Dentist may offer in the future will reasonably relate to the personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the financial incentive program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires California Resident prior opt in consent, which may be revoked at any time.
