We will comply with all applicable federal and state laws and regulations concerning the protection of the privacy and security of our customers’ personal information. CentiMark respects individual privacy and recognizes the need for appropriate protection and management of personal information that may be provided by our customers.
We have developed privacy principles to guide future decision-making and to ensure customer’s personal information provided to us is safeguarded.

Notices to California Consumers
California Consumer Privacy Act
1. We Do Not Sell Your Personal Information
The CCPA requires us to disclose whether we sell your personal information. We do not sell your personal information.
2. Your Rights Under the CCPA
The CCPA provides California consumers with the following rights:
2.1 Right to Know About Personal Information Collected, Disclosed, or Sold
California consumers have the right to request any of the following information regarding personal information collected about the consumer or the consumer's household during the last twelve (12) months ("Request to Know"):
1. The categories of personal information collected about you.
2. The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected.
3. The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information.
4. For personal information sold or exchanged for value with a third party: categories of personal information and categories of third parties.
5. For personal information disclosed to a third party for our business purpose: categories of personal information and categories of third parties.
6. The specific pieces of personal information collected about you (except for sensitive personally identifiable information).
The process by which we verify and respond to your requests is explained below under "How to Make a Verifiable California Consumer Request" and "How We Will Respond to a California Consumer Request."
2.2 Right to Request Deletion of Personal Information
California consumers have the right to request that a business delete any personal information about the consumer which the business has collected from the consumer, subject to a range of exceptions permitted by law ("Request to Delete"). For example, a business is not required to delete personal information if it is necessary to complete a transaction, is reasonably used for an ongoing business relationship, or is used internally in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which the consumer provided the information.
Once we receive and verify your request, we will delete the requested personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. The process by which we verify and respond to your requests is explained below under "How to Make a Verifiable California Consumer Request" and "How We Will Respond to a California Consumer Request."
2.3 Right to Opt-Out of Sale of Personal Information
California consumers have the right to direct a business not to sell their personal information to others. Since we do not sell personal information, we do not have an opt-out.
2.4 Right to Non-Discrimination for the Exercise of a Consumer’s Privacy Rights
California consumers have a right not to receive discriminatory treatment by the business for exercising the privacy rights conferred by the CCPA. As such, we will not discriminate against a California consumer for exercising any of the rights described in this section. This means that, except as legally permitted, 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.

By email: email@example.com
Please note that in order for us to verify certain requests (including verification of your identity, California residency, and—for requests made on behalf of someone else—your relationship with the individual on whose behalf the request is being made), you may be required to confirm information that we have on file for you; including email address, phone numbers, full names, mailing address and other personal information. We reserve the right to deny a consumer request if the identity or authority of the requesting party cannot be confirmed.
5. How We Will Respond to a California Consumer Request
For any Request to Know or Request to Delete, we will respond within ten (10) business days and may request additional information necessary to verify that you are permitted to make the request. We will respond to any verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) calendar days of receiving it, subject to delays and exceptions permitted by law. If we require more time to respond, we will let you know the reason why and the extension period in writing. If you have a password-protected online account with us, we will respond via that account. If you do not have an online account, we will use the email address or U.S. Postal address provided to us when making the request.
For Requests to Know, our response will cover the twelve (12) month period preceding our receipt of the request. If we cannot comply with all or part of your request, we will explain the reasons why.
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.
6. Designating an Authorized Agent
California consumers may designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA on the consumer’s behalf. An authorized agent may be a natural person or a business entity registered with the Secretary of State. We may require the authorized agent to provide proof that the consumer gave the agent signed permission to submit the request on the consumer’s behalf. We may also require the consumer to either verify their own identity directly or confirm that they provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request.
7. Personal Information of California Minors
We do not sell the personal information of minors under 16 years of age.
California “Shine the Light” Law
Under California Civil Code Section § 1798.83, California's "Shine the Light" law, California residents who provide personal information in obtaining products or services for personal, family or household use are entitled to request and obtain, once per calendar year, information about the customer information we shared, if any, with other businesses for their own direct marketing uses. The “Shine the Light” law does not apply to collections of personal information in other contexts (e.g., business-to-business relationships, or situations in which no consumer-business relationship has formed). While CentiMark is strictly business-to-business and does not market to consumers, California residents may submit their requests by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with their name and address and noting “California Shine the Light Request” in the subject line. The request will be processed within thirty (30) days of receiving.
