- Information excluded from the CCPA’s scope, like: health or medical information covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”) and the California Confidentiality of Medical Information Act (“CMIA”) or clinical trial data; personal information covered by certain sector-specific privacy laws, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FRCA”), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (“GLBA”) or California Financial Information Privacy Act (“FIPA”), and the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act of 1994.

- Indirectly from you. For example, from observing your actions on our websites.
- From third-party business partners such as social media sites, ad networks, and analytics providers.
- To fulfill or meet the reason you provided the information. For example, if you share your name and contact information to request a price quote or ask a question about our products or services, we will use that personal information to respond to your inquiry. If you provide your personal information to purchase a product or service, we will use that information to process your payment and facilitate delivery. We may also save your information to facilitate new product orders or process returns.

Litehouse will not collect additional categories of personal information or use the personal information we collect for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing you notice.
3. Sharing Personal Information. Litehouse may disclose your personal information to a third party for a business purpose. We do not disclose your Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Rather, we, like many businesses, sometimes hire other companies to perform certain business-related functions on our behalf. Examples include mailing information, maintaining databases, hosting services, and processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function, which may include Personal Information. Be advised that when we disclose personal information for a business purpose, we enter a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract.
We share your personal information with the following categories of third parties:
(A) Service providers.
(B) Data aggregators.
Disclosures of Personal Information for a Business Purpose
In the preceding twelve (12) months, Litehouse has disclosed to a third party the following categories of personal information for a business purpose:
- Commercial information.
- Internet or other similar network activity.
- Inferences drawn from other personal information.
4. In the preceding twelve (12) months, we have not sold personal information, and we will not sell your personal information. Your Rights and Choices.

Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights
You have the right to request that Litehouse disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months.

(ii) disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories
that each category of recipient obtained.
We will disclose this information in writing and will deliver the information by mail or electronically, at your option, in a readily usable format that allows you to transmit the
information from one entity to another.

Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), 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 us or our service provider(s) to:

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.

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 us by either:
Calling us toll-free at 1-800-669-3169, or
Submitting a request to our website, available here: ____TBD____, or
Emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. To designate an authorized agent, you must provide [sufficient evidence to show that the requestor is an authorized agent with written permission to act on your behalf.] You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
(i) Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
(ii) Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. We 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
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (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. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, 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 reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance. We do 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 tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
5. Non-Discrimination. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
- Deny you goods or services.
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
- Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
6. Notice of Financial Incentive. You have the right to receive equal service and price and not be discriminated against even if you exercise any of your CCPA rights. However, the CCPA allows us to offer certain financial incentive programs that may result in different prices, rates, or quality levels as long as we obtain your prior opt-in consent and the difference in price, rates or quality levels is directly related to the value that is provided to us by your personal information. We currently provide the following financial incentive program(s):
[insert (1) name of financial incentive program, (2) a succinct summary of the financial
incentive or price or service difference offered, (3) a description of the material terms,
including the categories of personal information implicated, (4) how the consumer can opt-in,
