  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on the consumer’s relationship with Niacet;
  • Comply with a legal obligation; and
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of personal information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

Verifiable Consumer Requests

To exercise your rights described in these disclosures, you must submit a verifiable consumer request to Niacet as set forth in the Policy.  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 relating to your 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 Niacet to reasonably determine you are the person about whom Niacet collected personal information or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows Niacet to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

Niacet cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if it cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.  Niacet will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

Niacet’s Response

Niacet endeavors to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt.  If Niacet requires more time (up to an additional 45 days), Niacet will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.  Niacet will deliver its written response by mail or electronically, at your option.   Any disclosures provided by Niacet will only cover the 12-month period preceding receipt of the verifiable consumer request.  The response provided by Niacet will, if applicable, also explain the reasons it cannot comply with a request.  For data portability requests, Niacet will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to electronically transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

Niacet does not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.  If Niacet determines that any request warrants a fee, it will tell you why a fee is warranted and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

No Discrimination

Niacet will not discriminate against you for exercising any rights under the CCPA.  In particular, if you exercise any such rights, Niacet will not:

  • Deny you goods or services;
  • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties;
  • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services; or
  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services, or a different level or quality of goods or services.

However, Niacet may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels.  Any such financial incentives offered by Niacet will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the material aspects of such financial incentives.  Your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time, is required before you obtain such financial incentives.

Revisions

Niacet may revise these disclosures from time to time by posting the revisions on the Site.  Any such revision will take effect immediately upon such posting, but will only relate to personal information collected after such revision is posted.  It is your responsibility to periodically check the Site for revisions to these disclosures.
