    Access

    California residents have the right to request what personal information we collected, used, disclosed, and sold about them within the preceding 12 months. Once we receive your request and confirm your identity and California resident status, we will disclose to you the information that we have collected about you, as required by the CCPA.

     

    Deletion

    California residents have the right to request the deletion of their personal information that we collect or maintain. Once we receive your request and confirm your identity and California resident status, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. Such exceptions include, but are not limited to, when the personal information is necessary to complete a transaction or provide goods or services to you, detect security incidents, comply with the law, and for internal uses reasonably aligned with your expectations.

    Opt-Out

    California law requires us to identify, for the 12-month period prior to the date of this Privacy Policy, what information Continental has “sold” about you, and you have a right to opt-out of such sale. We do not sell any personal information of minors under the age of 16 without receiving affirmative authorization to do so. Please note, Continental does not sell or rent your information to third parties for profit, to data brokers, or in any way other than those intended to improve your online experiences and the relevance of offers made to you through Continental’s and its subsidiaries’ websites. There are instances where Continental has shared personal information in order to provide our customers with personalized services or customized offers to improve your online experiences, and to improve our products and services. We do this in ways that are intended to extend the Continental experience to our customers in a variety of environments. Depending on the circumstances and the contractual obligations in place, this sharing may be a “sale” under applicable law and you may have the right to request that we stop such sharing as more fully set forth below. This sharing includes:

    Identifiers such as a real name, alias, postal address, geolocation information, unique personal identifier (such as a device identifier; cookies, beacons, pixel tags, mobile ad identifiers and similar technology; customer number, unique pseudonym, or user alias; telephone number and other forms of persistent or probabilistic identifiers), online identifier, Internet Protocol address, email address, account name, and other similar identifiers;

    Non-Discrimination

    California Residents have the right to not receive discriminatory treatment if and when they exercise their rights to access, delete, or opt-out under the CCPA.

    This means we cannot, for example: Deny goods or services to you; Charge different prices or rates for goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or by imposing penalties; Provide a different level or quality of goods or services to you; or

    Suggest that you will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
