Privacy Notice and Consumer Rights Addendum for California Residents 

As of January 1, 2020, if you are a California resident, you may request a copy of your personal information. You may also request that we delete or amend all or part of your personal information. To submit a verified request, please contact us at info@themarketobserver.com and title the subject of your email “California Privacy Rights Request”. In response, we will request information from you to verify your identity.

California’s Shine the Light Law

California’s “Shine the Light” law, permits our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us a list of what personal data (if any) we disclosed to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes in the previous calendar year and the names and addresses of those third parties. Requests may be made only once per year per person, must be sent to the email address below, and are free of charge. However, we do not disclose personal data protected under the “Shine the Light” law to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes.

California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) –

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) provides rights for California residents to receive information from MOB about the information we collect and use about you. We adopt this notice to comply with the CCPA and any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this Policy. This CCPA Privacy Notice addendum also provides information to California residents about what information you can obtain from us.  The CCPA provides our users who are California residents the following rights:

Definitions. For purposes of this CCPA Privacy Notice addendum, the terms below have the following meaning:

Business purpose means “the use of personal information for the business’s or a service provider’s operational purposes, or other notified purposes, provided that the use of personal information shall be reasonably necessary and proportionate to achieve the operational purpose for which the personal information was collected or processed or for another operational purpose that is compatible with the context in which the personal information was collected.”

Commercial purpose means “to advance a commercial or economic interest, such as by inducing another person to buy, rent, lease, join, subscribe to, provide, or exchange products, goods, property, information, or services, or enabling or effecting, directly or indirectly, a commercial transaction,” explicitly excluding engaging in protected free speech.

Verified Request (or Verifiable Request) means a request that is made by a California resident on their own behalf, or on behalf of a California resident from whom they have received authorization, and that we can verify pursuant to its standard verification procedures. For your protection, we may request and verify specific pieces of information about you prior to sharing to any data with you.

Exceptions to Our Obligation to Provide or Delete Information. You should be aware that our obligations to you are subject to certain important exemptions that will limit the things we are required to provide to or do for you under this law. Specifically, the CCPA does not apply to personal information collected pursuant to Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA). This means that even if you submit a Verifiable Request, we are not required to provide information to you or delete your information if your information is required by us to provide any of the services we provide to consumers or clients. This will likely limit the amount of information you receive in response to a Verifiable Request under the CCPA. In addition, we are not obligated to delete information in response to a Verifiable Request if other regulations require us to maintain these records for a period of time.

Submission of a Verifiable Request. You may submit a Verifiable Request for deletion by visiting sending an email to thelist@whiteglovetrades.com Each Verifiable must include all of the following information:

  • First and Last Name
  • Mailing address (street, city, state, zip code)
  • Email address
  • Phone number

 

Upon receipt of your request, we must ensure it is a Verifiable Request. we will acknowledge our receipt of your request within ten (10) days, and we have forty-five(45) days to respond to you or request that you confirm your request to delete information we hold. If reasonably necessary to respond to your Verifiable Request, we may extend the deadline for our response to you by an additional forty-five (45) days, and if we choose to do so, we will notify you.

You may only make a Verifiable Request twice within a 12-month period.  We may deny your request if we are unable to verify your identity or have reason to believe that the request is fraudulent.

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.
