The above notice to California Residents pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act and the California Privacy Rights Act supplements the information contained in our Website Privacy Policy and corporate Privacy policies, procedures, and standards, and applies solely to employees, visitors, and other individuals who reside in the State of California (“consumers” or “you”). We adopt this notice to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 effective January 1, 2023 (“CPRA”) and other California privacy laws. Any terms defined in the CCPA and CPRA have the same meaning when used in this notice.

The CCPA and CPRA provide California residents with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA and CRPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.


Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights

You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal and sensitive information unless responding to the request is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable request, we will disclose to you:

  • The categories of personal information and sensitive information we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources for the personal and sensitive information we collected about you.
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting, using and/or disclosing that information.
  • The categories of third parties, contractors and service providers with whom we share, sell or disclose that personal information.
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
  • If we disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, a list of those disclosures, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.
  • Whether your information is sold or shared.
  • The retention period or criteria used for retention.

Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable request, 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:

  • Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide 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.
  • Help to ensure security and integrity to the extent the use of the consumer’s personal information is reasonably necessary and proportionate for those purposes.
  • Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
  • 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 the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  • Comply with a legal obligation.

Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please request or download the Personal Data Request Form and send it to Human Resources at HR@outdoorlivingsupply.net. Please include the information listed on the form to confirm your identity.  Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable request on behalf of your minor child.

You may only make a verifiable request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable request must:

  • Provide enough information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
  • 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. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable request to confirm the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.


Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. 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 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, specifically by electronic mail communication.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable 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.


Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights

The Company DOES NOT SELL your personal information.



We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA or CPRA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA or CPRA, we will not:

  • Deny you services.
  • Provide you a different level of service.
  • Discriminate in making employment decisions.

California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits employees that are California residents to request certain information regarding any disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send us an email via HR@outdoorlivingsupply.net.
