SPECIAL NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS

In compliance with California law, we provide California residents with certain information and access upon request (“Consumer Request”). This Policy outlines how California residents can request the information and what you can receive.

If you would like to submit a Consumer Request, you can contact PLANTKOS® at the email address provided below. If you choose to submit a Consumer Request, you must provide us with enough information to identify you and enough specificity on the requested data. PLANTKOS® will only use the information it receives to respond to your request. PLANTKOS® will not be able to disclose information if it cannot verify that the person making the Consumer Request is the person about whom we collected information, or someone authorized to act on such person’s behalf.

“Personal information” means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. “Personal information” does not include publicly available information.

  1. Request to Access. You may submit a Consumer Request to obtain a copy of or access to the personal information that PLANTKOS® has collected on you.
  2. Request to Know. You may submit a Consumer Request to receive information about PLANTKOS®’ data collection practices.

    Please note that the categories of personal information and sources will not exceed what is contained in this Policy. Additionally, PLANTKOS® is not required to retain any information about you if it is only used for a one-time transaction and would not be maintained in the ordinary course of business. PLANTKOS® is also not required to reidentify personal information if it is not stored in that manner already, nor is it required to provide the personal information to you more than twice in a twelve-month period.

  3. Request to Delete. You may request that PLANTKOS® delete your personal information. Subject to certain exceptions set out below we will, on receipt of a verifiable Consumer Request, delete your personal information from our records and direct any service providers to do the same.

Please note that we may not delete your personal information if it is necessary to:

  • complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected;
  • provide a good or service requested by you, or reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform a contract between you and us;
  • detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive activity, and take all necessary and appropriate steps to mitigate current and future risk;
  • debug and repair internal information technology as necessary;
  • undertake internal research for technological development and demonstration;
  • exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise his or her right of free speech, or exercise another right provided for by law;
  • comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act;
  • engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when our deletion of the information is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of such research, provided we have obtained your informed consent;
  • enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with us;
  • comply with an existing legal obligation; or
  • otherwise use your personal information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information.

PLANTKOS® may not, and will not, treat you differently because of your Consumer Request activity. As a result of your Consumer Request activity, we may not and will not deny goods or services to you; charge different rates for goods or services; provide a different level quality of goods or services; or suggest any of the preceding will occur. However, we can and may charge you a different rate, or provide a different level of quality, if the difference is reasonably related to the value provided by your personal information.
