  1. Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

California residents have the right to delete the personal information we have collected from you and the right know certain information about our data practices in the preceding 12 months.

To exercise any of these rights, please submit a request by email at Help@micatu.com or call us at 1-888-705-8836. In the request, please specify which right you are seeking to exercise and the scope of your request. Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information.  You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. We may require specific account information from you to help us verify your identity and process your request. If we are unable to verify your identity, we may deny your request(s).  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.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period.  

  1. Right to Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.

  1. Shine the Light

California's "Shine the Light" law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our Website that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to Help@micatu.com.

Users from the European Economic Area

Legal Basis for Processing

If you are an individual resident in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), we collect and process information about you only where we have a legal basis for doing so under applicable European Union laws.  The legal basis depends on how you use the Website including (1) our need to collect and use the information to provide our services to you; (2) it satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as for research and development, to market and promote the services and to protect our legal rights and interests; or (3) you give us consent to do so for a specific purpose.

 

If you have consented to our use of information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place.  Where we are using your information because we or a third party (e.g. your employer) have a legitimate interest to do so, you have the right to object to that use, although, in some cases, this may mean no longer using the services. 

How to Access or Control Your Information

 

The General Data Protection Directive (“GDPR”) grants individuals residing in the EEA certain rights with respect to their information. These include the right to request a copy of your information, to object to our use of your information (including for marketing purposes), to request the deletion or restriction of your information, or to request your information in a structured, electronic format.  You can exercise these rights by contacting us at Help@micatu.com. 

 

The GDPR provides that we may limit or deny your requests in certain cases. For example, if fulfilling your request would reveal information about another person, or if you ask to delete information which we have compelling legitimate interests to keep, including as required by law. You may have the right to complain to a data protection authority in the country where you live, where you work or where you feel your rights were infringed if you have concerns about your rights.

Other International Users 

The Website is hosted in the United States (“U.S.”). If you are a consumer accessing the Website from Asia, or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use and disclosure that differ from laws of the U.S., your continued use of the Website, which is governed by U.S. law and these terms, indicates your consent to transfer of your information to the U.S.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

It is our policy to post any changes we make to our Privacy Policy on this page. If we make material changes to how we treat our users' personal information, we will notify you through a notice on the Website home page. The date the Privacy Policy was last revised is identified at the top of the page. You are responsible for ensuring we have an up-to-date active and deliverable email address for you, and for periodically visiting our Website and this Privacy Policy to check for any changes.
