Your Rights and Choices with Respect to California Personal Information

The CCPA provides California residents with specific rights regarding California Personal Information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

Access and Data Portability Rights

You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your California Personal Information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see the section below on Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will disclose to you:

  • The categories of California Personal Information we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources for the California Personal Information we collected about you
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that California Personal Information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that California Personal Information
  • The specific pieces of California Personal Information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
  • If we sold or disclosed your California Personal Information for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing
    • disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the California Personal Information categories disclosed; and
    • sales, identifying the California Personal Information categories sold and that each category of recipient purchased.

Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that Medic Tours delete any of your California Personal Information, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your California Personal Information from our records, unless an exception under CCPA applies.

Right to Opt-Out of the sale of Personal Information to Third Parties

You have the right to request that Medic Tours does not sell your Personal Information to third parties. You may submit such requests via email at [email protected]. Once we receive your request, we will ensure that your Personal Information is not sold to third parties.

Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by:

Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your California Personal Information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected California Personal Information.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with your California Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the California Personal Information relates to you.

Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.

We will only use California Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

Any disclosures we provide in response to a request will only cover the 12-month period preceding the request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your California Personal Information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity 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 we reserve the right to either refuse to act on your request or charge you a reasonable fee to complete your request if it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.


You have a right to not receive discriminatory treatment for exercising your CCPA rights, and we will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.

Minors Under Age 16

We do not and will not “sell” the personal information of consumers we know to be less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “Right to Opt In”) from either the minor who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a minor less than 13 years of age.

Changes to this Notice

We reserve the right to amend this Notice at our discretion and at any time. When we make changes to this Notice, we will post the updated notice to the Services and update the notice’s date.
