CCPA defines “sale” broadly to include any transfers or disclosures to other businesses or third parties for monetary or other valuable consideration (hereinafter referred as “CCPA-defined transfers”). While we do not obtain financial compensation for your personal information, we may share it with third-parties for service improvement, research and development, customer relation management and promotion and advertisement (including but not limited to tailoring your experience on the Site, providing you with high-quality and relevant content (including interest based advertising), and developing and improving our products and services)

            https://www.japanican.com/ccpa.html

5. Your Rights and Requests

If you are a California resident, you have the following rights under the CCPA:

I.          Request to disclose to you the following information covering the 12 months preceding your request:

(I)        The categories of Personal Information we collected about you;

(II)       The categories of sources from which we collected such Personal Information;

(III)      The business or commercial purpose(s) for collecting such Personal Information about you;

(IV)      The categories of third parties with whom we shared such Personal Information; and

(V)       The specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you.

II.         Request to delete Personal Information we collected from you

III.        Non-Discrimination for the exercise of the rights under the CCPA

To make a request for the disclosure or deletion described I. and II. above, please contact us by using the following means:

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 personal information or an authorized representative, which may include: providing your email and phone verification, known customer information, and/or account sign-up authentication or other information (including but not limited to passport related information and social security related information) needed to verify your identity depending on the sensitivity of personal information in question.

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

If you use an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete described I. and II. above, you may specify your agent by providing the authorized agent written permission to do so. In addition, we will request sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify your agent is the person about whom you assign.

We use good faith efforts to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days after its receipt. If we need more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and the needed extension period in writing.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. For data portability requests, we will select a commercially reasonable format to provide your Personal Information that is commonly useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance, but we do not guarantee that all formats are useable in all media. 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 provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

6. Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time.  The “Date last updated” mentioned at the top of this page states when this Privacy Policy was last updated and any changes will become effective upon our posting the revised Privacy Policy.

Where required by CCPA or other applicable law, we will request your consent to any such changes.  We will provide the revised Privacy Policy by email or by posting notice of the changes on our website or through any relevant services.
