Under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), California residents have the following rights: (1) the right to know, which is the right to request that SECURE MEDICARE QUOTES disclose information about, or a copy of, the types of personal information we collect, use, and disclose about them; (2) the right to delete, which is the right to request that we delete personal information that is collected or maintained by SECURE MEDICARE QUOTES; and (3) the right to non-discrimination, which is the right to be free from discrimination for exercising any consumer rights under the CCPA. We may limit our responses to any requests under the CCPA as permitted by law. For example, we need to maintain certain information to provide our services to you or for legal and compliance purposes.
To exercise your rights to know or delete under the CCPA, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us toll-free at (877) 882-0432. For verification purposes only, we will collect a limited number of personal identifiers, send those through a secure verification system, ask you follow-up questions through our online portal or representative, and then confirm whether your identity has been verified.
You may also designate an authorized agent to make a request to know or delete on your behalf. To designate an authorized agent, you must provide the natural person, or entity registered with the California Secretary of State, with written permission to submit such a request. You (or your agent) will still be required to verify your identity. However, if an authorized agent has been provided with power of attorney in accordance with the California Probate Code, then no additional written authorization is required. All agents must submit proof to SECURE MEDICARE QUOTES that they have been authorized by any consumer(s) to act on their behalf.
