Under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA), California residents have certain rights related to their personal information. Alumni Nations recognizes the importance of its customers’ privacy rights and for that reason, most of the CCPA requirements have been part of Alumni Nation’s approach to data privacy since well before passage of the CCPA. Although the rights are described in more detail in the main body of our Privacy Policy, we outline them here for ease of reference.

First, Alumni Nations does not exchange your personal information for money.

Second, you may submit a verifiable request for the following information; a) categories of your personal information collected by us; b) purposes for which we collect your personal information; c) categories of sources from which we collect your personal information; and d) the specific personal information we have collected about you in the prior 12 months.

Third, subject to certain exceptions outlined, you may ask us to delete the personal information we have collected from you. We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Fourth, we will not discriminate against you on either a pricing or service basis, for exercising your privacy rights.  Finally, you may exercise your rights under by: a) deactivating and purging your account in your control panel settings or b) by sending an email to Privacy@alumninations.com to request access or deletion.
