Notice of Your Rights

The CCPA allows California residents to request that a business that collects California consumers’ personal information give consumers additional transparency and access to the specific pieces of personal information that the business has collected about the consumer. California residents also have the right to submit a request for deletion of information under certain circumstances.

SHINE THE LIGHT. Knewz Report does not collect or share any Personal Information as defined by California Civil Code section 1798.83. Therefore, the California “Shine the Light” law does not apply to the Knewz Report. Any requests for processing of information collection under “Shine the Light” will be legally rejected because they are not applicable.

RIGHT TO NON-DESCRIMINATION. Consistent with California law, if you choose to exercise your rights under the CCPA, we will not provide different quality of services unless those differences are related to your information.

RIGHT TO KNOW. To exercise your right under the CCPA to request a description of the information we have collected about you, you may email privacy@Knewzreport.com with the subject “CCPA RIGHT TO KNOW Request”, and explain your specific request in the message body. Alternatively, you may submit a CCPA request by legally declaring your status as a California Resident using the button below, and following the instructions provided.

RIGHT TO DELETE. To exercise your right to delete information we have collected about you, email privacy@Knewzreport.com with the subject “CCPA RIGHT TO DELETE Request”, and explain your specific deletion request in the message body.

RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF SALE. Although Knewz Report does not collect Personal Information as defined by California Civil Code section 1798.83, we use cookies as described as Advertising Cookies by our Website Cookie Policy to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests.

You have an option to opt-out from this if you wish once you legally declare your California Resident status below.

Once we receive your request, we may verify it by requesting information sufficient to confirm your identity, including by asking you for additional information. If you would like to use an agent registered with the California Secretary of State to exercise your rights, we may request evidence that you have provided such agent with power of attorney or that the agent otherwise has valid written authority to submit requests to exercise rights on your behalf.
