We may request that you submit a signed statement under penalty of perjury that you are the individual you claim to be. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt. However, you may request that we disclose the required information beyond the 12-month period, and we will honor that expanded request unless doing so would involve a disproportionate effort. Your right to request required information beyond the 12-month period, and our obligation to provide that information, shall only apply to personal information collected on or after January 1, 2022.

·       Opt-Out Rights. To opt out of the sale of your personal information or the sharing of your personal information or to ask us to limit processing of your Sensitive Personal Information, you may submit a request to us by emailing us at Privacy@Rothco.com. You may also call us at +1-631-585-9446.

·       You may also opt out by activating a user-enabled global privacy control, such as a browser plug-in or privacy setting, device setting, or other mechanism, that communicates or signals your choice to opt-out of the sale and sharing of personal information. When we receive such a signal we will stop setting third party, analytics, or advertising partner cookies on your browser. This will prevent the sale or sharing of information relating to that specific device through cookies to our advertising or analytics partners. This option does not stop all sales or sharing of your information because we cannot match your device’s identification or internet protocol address with your personally identifiable information like your name, phone number, email address or ZIP Code. If you delete cookies on your browser, any prior do not sell or do not share signal is also deleted and you should make sure that your user-enabled setting is always activated.

 

B.     Our Responses.

We will acknowledge receipt of your request for access, correction or deletion within 30 business days and will endeavor to respond within forty-five days of receipt of your request, but if we require more time (up to an additional forty-five days) we will notify you of our need for additional time.

 

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 (e.g. Microsoft Excel file and/or Adobe PDF file).

For requests for deletion of your information, please understand that Privacy Laws permit us to retain certain information and not delete it under certain circumstances noted above in the description of Information Deletion Request Rights.

 

For requests that we not sell or share your information or limit processing or Sensitive Personal Information we will comply with your request promptly, and at least within 30 business days. Once we receive your request we will wait at least 12 months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales or sharing.

 

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity and confirm that the personal information relates to you.

 

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.
