  1. Notice of privacy rights of California residents

If you are an eligible California resident, the Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides you with specific rights with respect to our collection and use of your Personal Information over the past twelve months. This California Privacy Rights Section supplements this Privacy Policy and applies solely to eligible residents of California as of January 1, 2020. Any terms not defined in this section have the same meaning as defined in the CCPA.

  • Right to know about Personal Information collected, disclosed, or sold

You have the right to request that we provide certain information to you about our collection and use of your Personal Information over the past twelve (12) months.  Specifically, you have the right to request disclosure of the categories of Personal Information and specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you over the last 12 months. Upon the submission of a verifiable consumer request we will disclose to you:

  • the categories of Personal Information we collected about you;
  • the categories of sources from which Personal Information was collected;
  • the business or commercial purpose for collecting Personal Information;
  • the business or commercial purpose for disclosing or selling Personal Information; and
  • the categories of third parties with whom we sold or disclosed the category of Personal Information for a business purpose.

We will also provide the specific pieces of Personal Information we collected about you, subject to certain exceptions under applicable law, if you also request access to such information.

  • Right to request deletion of Personal Information

If you are a California resident, you also have the right to request that we delete any of your Personal Information that we collect or maintain about you, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will conduct a reasonable search of our records in order to locate any Personal Information we have collected about you that is eligible for deletion, and delete such Personal Information. To the extent we have shared any Personal Information collected about you with service providers that is eligible for deletion, we will direct those service providers to delete that Personal Information as well. SCP may not be able to comply entirely with your request to delete all of your Personal Information as set forth under the CCPA. Specifically, we are not required to delete any Personal Information we have collected about you that is necessary for us and our service provider(s) to:

  • Complete the transaction for which the Personal Information was collected, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, provide a good or service requested by you, or reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform a contract between SCP and you.
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; or prosecute those responsible for that activity.
  • Debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise his or her right of free speech, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act pursuant to Chapter 3.6 (commencing with Section 1546) of Title 12 of Part 2 of the Penal Code.
  • 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 our deletion of the information is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of such research, if you have provided informed consent.
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with us.
  • Comply with a legal obligation, such as retaining records for a period of time as set out in local, state, or federal laws.
  • Otherwise use your Personal Information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided your information.

Following a deletion request, any Personal Information about you that was not deleted from our systems due to the above exceptions will only be used for the purposes provided for by the applicable exceptions.

  • Right to opt-out of the sale of Personal Information

If you are a California resident and SCP sells or discloses Personal Information about you to third parties, you may have the right to request that SCP not sell your Personal Information.

To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us by visiting the following Internet Web page link:

Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Once you make a verified opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize Personal Information sales. However, if at a later time, you wish to allow us to sell your Personal Information to third parties, you must opt-in to such sharing, and may be do so by contacting us at info@southcoastplaza.com. If a transaction requires the sale or transmission of your Personal Information in order to complete the transaction, we will notify you and provide instructions on how you can opt-in.

  • Right to non-discrimination for the exercise of a consumer’s privacy rights

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your privacy rights.  Unless permitted by applicable law, we will not: (i) deny you goods or services; (ii) charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties; (iii) provide you a different level or quality of goods or services; or (iv) suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

  • Exercising your California privacy rights

You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your CCPA rights. To exercise the CCPA rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

Only you, the person to whom you have given power of attorney, or an otherwise authorized agent registered with the California Secretary of State, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your Personal Information. However, you may make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. Additionally, you may only make a verifiable consumer request for access twice within a 12-month period. 

Your verifiable consumer request must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or an authorized representative. 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. While we may ask for Personal Information to verify the requestor or consumer’s identity when making a request, we will only use that Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

  • Response timing and format

We will make our best effort to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. Within ten (10) days of receiving the request, we will confirm receipt and provide information about our verification and processing of the request. SCP will maintain records of consumer requests made pursuant to CCPA as well as our response to said requests for a period of at least twenty-four (24) months.

If you have an account with us, we may require you to take delivery of our written response through that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response electronically, though you may alternatively choose to receive delivery by mail.  The response will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.  Requests for the specific pieces of information that we have collected about you will be sent in a portable, readily useable format that you may transmit to another entity without hindrance.

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.

  • Your rights under “Shine the Light”

In addition to your rights under the CCPA, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents to request information regarding our disclosure, if any, of their Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If this applies, you may obtain the categories of Personal Information shared and the names and addresses of all third parties that received Personal Information for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately prior calendar year (e.g., requests made in 2020 will receive information about 2019 sharing activities). You may also request that we do not share your Personal Information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such requests, send an email to info@southcoastplaza.com, specifying that you seek your “California Customer Choice Privacy Notice.” Please allow thirty (30) days for a response. Please note that not all information sharing is covered by the “Shine the Light” law requirements and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response.

When contacting us, please indicate your name, address, email address, and what Personal Information you do not want us to share with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Please note that there is no charge for controlling the sharing of your Personal Information or for processing this request.
