RE/MAX will not collect additional categories of personal information or use the personal information we collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing you notice.
We may disclose your personal information to third-party service providers for a business purpose or disclose your personal information to other third-parties, subject to your right to tell us not so share your information (see Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In).
When we disclose personal information to third-party service providers for a business purpose, we enter into contracts that describe the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract. When we disclose your personal information to other third-parties, the CCPA prohibits those third parties from selling it unless you have received explicit notice and an opportunity to opt-out of further sales.
In the last 12 months, we have disclosed the following categories of personal information:
We disclose your personal information for the following categories of third parties:
The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion), we will disclose to you:
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
If you have any questions about your rights, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
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.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.
We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
For instructions on exercising sale opt-out rights, see Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer 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 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 provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
You have the right to request we not disclose your personal information to non-service provider third parties at any time (the "right to opt-out"). To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us by emailing email@example.com
Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least 12 months before asking you to reauthorize personal information disclosures to non-service provider third parties. However, you may change your mind and opt back into personal information disclosures to non-service provider third parties at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your opt-out rights. We will only use personal information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can resultin different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information's value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
