Privacy Notice for California Residents

This Privacy Notice for California Residents (“Privacy Notice”) supplements the information contained in our Privacy Policy, accessible at https://bionaturae.com/privacy-policy , and applies solely to all visitors, users, and others who reside in the State of California (”consumers” or “you”). Bionaturae ("bionaturae," "We," “Us,” or “Our”) adopts this notice to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) and other California privacy laws.

Bionaturae will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and nonpersonal-identifying information to anyone.

The CCPA provides California consumers specific rights concerning their personal information, including, the right to request that we disclose what personal information we collect, use, disclose, and sell. This Section describes your rights and how you may exercise those rights as well as describes how we and third parties handle your personal information.

You or your authorized agent can request: 1) a disclosure of your personal information we collect, or use; 2) to delete your personal information we collect, or maintain. We do not sell any personal information. If you choose to submit a request through an authorized agent, we will require proof that the authorized agent has your written permission to submit a request on your behalf. Additionally, we may require you to verify your identity with us through the verification process detailed below.

If you choose to exercise these rights, we will not discriminate against you because of it. However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information's value and will be described to you in writing. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.

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, we will disclose to you:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you..
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you.

You also 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 to delete, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

You may submit a request to know or request to delete, free of charge, by emailing us at info@bionaturae.com, or by calling us at 1 (860) 535 0494. Note that for requests to delete, we will require you to separately confirm that you want your personal information deleted. To verify your identity, we require you provide your name and email or any other information necessary to verify your identity. For some requests, we may also require you to sign a declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request. Once submitted, you will receive an email within 10 days that we will use to verify your identity and provide confirmation of your request. We will respond to your request to know or request to delete within 45 days from the day we receive the request. If necessary, we may extend the time period to a maximum total of 90 days from the day we receive the request. In such case, you will receive an email notifying you of the extension and explaining the reason for the extension. Any disclosure in response to a request to know will cover the 12-month period preceding the business’s receipt of the request and will be delivered in a readily useable format, by mail or electronically at the consumer’s option.

Your request to know or request to delete may be denied for any reason allowable under the CCPA. For example, we may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

  • Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
  • Comply with a legal obligation.
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it or any other purpose permitted by the CCPA.

Similarly, we may deny requests:

  • For specific pieces of personal information if the disclosure creates a substantial, articulable, and unreasonable risk to the security of that personal information, your account with us, or the security of our systems or networks.
  • To access or delete information that is de-identified.
  • If your identity cannot be verified to a degree of certainty required by the CCPA.
  • From an authorized agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by the consumer to act on the consumer’s behalf.
