CCPA RIGHTS FOR CALIFORNIA CONSUMERS
The CCPA provides California consumers with certain rights with regard to their personal information. This Section explains those rights. If you are a California consumer and would like to exercise any of those rights, please see Section 4.E below for more information on how to submit a request.
RIGHT TO KNOW ABOUT AND ACCESS YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
If you are a California consumer, you may have the right to request that Nassau provide you with information regarding what personal information about you we have collected, used, disclosed, or sold in the preceding twelve (12) months. Once we receive your request and verify your identity, we will disclose to you one or more of the following as requested:
- The categories of personal information we have collected about you in the preceding twelve (12) months.
- The categories of sources from which we collected your personal information in the preceding twelve (12) months.
- The business or commercial purposes for collecting your personal information in the preceding twelve (12) months.
- The categories of third parties with whom we shared your personal information in the preceding twelve (12) months.
- The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you in the preceding twelve (12) months.
You may only make a consumer request to know about or access your personal information twice within a twelve (12)-month period.
RIGHT TO DELETE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
If you are a California consumer, you may have the right to request that Nassau delete certain of your personal information that we have collected from you. However, this right to deletion does not apply to any of your personal information that is subject to an exception under the CCPA. Once we receive your request and verify your identity, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information in our records that is not subject to any of the CCPA exceptions.
RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OF THE SALE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
RIGHT TO NON-DISCRIMINATION
Nassau will not discriminate against any California consumer who exercises any of the rights described above. Specifically, except as permitted by the CCPA, we will not deny you goods or services; charge you different prices or rates, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties; provide you with a different level of service or quality of goods or services; or suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
HOW TO SUBMIT A REQUEST
If you are a California consumer and would like to exercise any of the CCPA rights identified above, you may submit a request by either completing a request on www.nfg.com, sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
or by calling us at 1-800-813-8180.
SUBMITTING A REQUEST THROUGH YOUR AUTHORIZED AGENT
If you are a California consumer, you may have the option to designate an authorized agent to submit a request on your behalf, so long as the authorized agent has your written permission to do so and you have taken steps to verify your identity directly with us. If you would like to designate an agent, your agent must register as such with the California Secretary of State and submit a copy of this registration along with your consumer request to us. We may need to contact you directly to verify the request.
HOW WE VERIFY YOUR REQUEST
We cannot fulfill your request to provide you with or delete your personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.
To verify your identity, we will ask that you provide the following information when you submit your request:
- Date of Birth
- Email Address
- Policy Number (if applicable)
Depending on your type of request or the information requested by you, we may require additional information in order to verify your identity and fulfill your request. If we cannot successfully verify your identity, we will inform you of that fact.
We will respond to your request within forty-five (45) calendar days. However, in certain circumstances, we may require additional time to process your request, as permitted by the CCPA or other applicable law. We will advise you within forty-five (45) calendar days after receiving your request if such an extension is necessary and why it is needed. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the twelve (12)-month period preceding our receipt of your request. If we cannot fulfill your request, our response to you will also explain the reason why we cannot fulfill your request.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
