A California resident has the right to request that Hammerton delete any personal information that it has collected about the California resident, and that Hammerton direct any service provider to delete the California resident’s personal information from its records. Such a request may be referred to as a ‘request to delete’. However, pursuant to the CCPA, your information may not be deleted under certain circumstances, including where maintenance of your personal information is necessary: 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 that you requested or that is reasonably anticipated within the context of your ongoing business relationship with Hammerton, or otherwise perform a contract between Hammerton and you; to detect security incidents, protect against or prosecute fraudulent or illegal activity; to enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with Hammerton; to comply with a legal obligation; or to otherwise use your information internally in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information.
For more information about these and other situations in which we may not delete your information, please see California Civil Code Section 1798.105(d).

In addition, the California resident may be required to verify their own identity with Hammerton. Hammerton may deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by the California resident to act on their behalf. Such requirements, however, will not apply where a California resident has provided the authorized agent with power of attorney pursuant to Probate Code section 4000 to 4465.
A California resident has the right, at any time, to direct Hammerton not to sell their personal information. This right may be referred to as the right to opt-out. You may opt out of the sale of your personal information by submitting a “Stop of Sale” request at [email protected]. If Hammerton has a good faith, reasonable, and documented belief that a request opt-out is fraudulent, it may deny the request. A California resident may use an authorized agent to submit a request to opt-out on the California resident’s behalf. The California resident must provide the authorized agent with written authorization do so. Hammerton may deny a request from an authorized agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by the California resident to act on the California resident’s behalf.
In addition, Hammerton does not and will not sell the personal information of a California resident it has actual knowledge is under the age of 16 without affirmative authorization (known as “opt-in”). Hammerton will not discriminate against a California resident because the California resident exercised any of their rights under the CCPA, including, but not limited to, by:
- Denying goods or services to the California resident;
- Charging different prices or rates for goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties;
- Providing a different level or quality of goods or services to the California resident;
- Suggesting that the California resident will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
Hammerton may offer financial incentives, including payments to California residents as compensation, for the collection of personal information, the sale of personal information, or the deletion of personal information. Hammerton may also offer a different price, rate, level, or quality of goods or services to the California resident if that price or difference is directly related to the value provided to Hammerton by that resident’s data. Hammerton will notify California residents of such financial incentives. Hammerton will not use financial incentive practices that are unjust, unreasonable, coercive, or usurious in nature.
