How To Exercise Your California Privacy Rights

Exercise Your Right to Know or Right to Delete

You may submit a request to exercise your California Privacy Rights through the mechanisms described below. We will need to verify your identity before processing your request, which may require us to request additional personal information from you or require you to log into your account. We will only use personal information provided in connection with a California Privacy Rights request to review and comply with your request. You may also designate an authorized agent to make requests on your behalf. In order to be able to act, authorized agents must submit a request using the email address below and provide sufficient evidence to demonstrate that the requestor is an authorized agent with written permission to act on your behalf.

In certain circumstances, we may decline a request to exercise the Right to Know or Right to Delete described above, particularly where we are unable to verify your identity. If we are unable to comply with all or a portion of your request, we will explain the reasons for declining to comply with the request.

To exercise your Right to Know and/or your Right to Delete, please submit a request by emailing privacy@mealpal.com with the subject line "California Privacy Rights Request".

Exercise Your Right to Opt-out

Unless you have exercised your Right to Opt-out, we may disclose or "sell" your personal information to third parties for monetary or other valuable consideration. The third parties to whom we sell personal information may use such information for their own purposes in accordance with their own privacy policies. Remember, CCPA defines data "sales" broadly. While MealPal may disclose or otherwise share your personal information with select third parties, we do not sell your data to third parties in the traditional sense of the phrase, meaning we do not collect, compile and then sell your data to data brokers, data resellers or other similar parties.

To exercise the Right to Opt-out of personal information sales, please submit a request by emailing privacy@mealpal.com with the subject line "California Privacy Right to Opt-out".

You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your Right to Opt-out. However, we may ask you to provide additional personal information so that we can properly identify you to track compliance with your opt-out request. We will only use personal information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request. If you choose not to provide this information, we may only be able to process your request to the extent we are able to identify you in our data systems.
