Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights 

You have the right to request that AARDVARK disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months.  Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you: 

  1. Sales, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient purchased; and 

  2. Disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions.  Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. 

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for AARDVARK or our service providers to: 

  1. Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, 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.

  4. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law. 

  5. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546). 

  6.

  7. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us. 

  8. Comply with a legal obligation. 

  9. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it. 


Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights 

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to AARDVARK by either: 


Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. 


You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period.


The verifiable consumer request must: 


AARDVARK cannot respond to your request or provide you with 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.  We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request. 


Response Timing and Format 

AARDVARK will strive to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt.  If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.  We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.  Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt.  The response we provide will also explain the response we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. 

AARDVARK does not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.  If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will explain how we determined that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request. 



AARDVARK will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.  Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not: 


We reserve the right to amend this CCPA policy or our Privacy Policy at our discretion and at any time.  When we make changes to either of these policies, we will make notice of this by the revision date of the policy on our Website(s).
