This California Consumer Privacy Act Notice (“Notice”) is provided by Collectors Universe, Inc. and its affiliate companies. These companies are referred to in this Notice as “we” or “us.”
This Notice explains how we collect, use, and disclose personal information about California residents. The Notice also explains certain rights that California residents have under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). This Notice explains how California residents can exercise their rights under the CCPA to request that we: (1) provide certain personal information that we have collected about them during the past 12 months, along with related information described below, or (2) delete certain personal information that we have collected from them.
The CCPA only applies to information about residents of California. If you are not a resident of California, you may submit a request and we will process it, as described in this Notice, even though the CCPA does not require us to do so. In accepting, processing, and responding to requests by individuals who are not California residents, we will apply all of the same limitations and exceptions under the CCPA to those requests as apply to requests made by California residents. We reserve the right to change or stop the practice of accepting requests from individuals who are not California residents at any time and without prior notice.
Under the CCPA, “personal information” is information that identifies, relates to, or could reasonably be linked with a particular California resident or household. This information is referred to in this Notice as “Personal Data.”
We collect and disclose Personal Data in a variety of contexts. For example, we collect and disclose Personal Data to provide products and services, and for our employment and human resource purposes. We do not disclose Personal Data for any other purpose.
The Personal Data that we collect, use, or disclose about a specific California resident will depend on, for example, our relationship or interaction with that individual.
During the past 12 months, we have collected the following categories of Personal Data:
During the past 12 months, we have also disclosed the categories of Personal Data listed above internally for our business purposes and otherwise with the person’s consent (e.g., in set registry profiles or forum signatures) . We have not, however, sold Personal Data that is subject to the CCPA’s sale limitations. The CCPA defines a “sale” as the disclosure of Personal Data for monetary or other valuable consideration.
The purposes for which we collect and use Personal Data depend on, among other things, our relationship or interaction with a specific California resident. The table below lists the purposes for which we collect and use Personal Data in different contexts.
|Purposes for Collection and Use||Examples|
|Provide and manage products and services||
|Support our everyday operations, including to meet risk, legal, and compliance requirements||
|Manage, improve, and develop our business||
|Support employment, infrastructure, and human resource management||
The sources from which we collect Personal Data depend on, among other things, our relationship or interaction with a specific California resident. The information below lists the categories of sources from which we collect Personal Data in different contexts.
A California resident has the right to request that we:
If you are a California resident, a business may not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under the CCPA.
CCPA requires us to verify the identity of anyone making an Access Request or a Deletion Request, and we must deny any such request if we cannot verify the requestor’s identity. In addition, privacy and data protection laws, other than the CCPA, apply to much of the Personal Data that we collect and use. When these laws apply, Personal Data may be exempt from, or outside the scope of, Access Requests and Deletion Requests. As a result, in some instances, we may decline all or part of an Access Request or Deletion Request related to this Personal Data. This means that we may not provide some or all of this Personal Data when you make an Access Request. Also, we may not delete some or all of this Personal Data when you make a Deletion Request.
As examples, our processing of or response to an Access Request or Deletion Request may not include some or all of the following Personal Data:
The types of Personal Data described above are examples. We have not listed all types of Personal Data that may not be included when we respond to or process Access Requests or Deletion Requests.
In addition to the above examples, we may not include Personal Data when we respond to or process Access Requests or Deletion Requests when the CCPA recognizes another exception. For example, we will not provide the Personal Data about another individual where doing so would adversely affect the data privacy rights of that individual. As another example, we will not delete Personal Data when it is necessary to maintain that Personal Data to comply with a legal obligation.
If you are a California resident, you can make an Access Request or a Deletion Request by:
