Your privacy rights 

Under the California Consumer Privacy Act, CCPA, California residents 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 verify your request, we will disclose to you: 

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you. 
  • The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected. 
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you. 
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling any personal information. 
  • The categories of personal information about you that was sold or disclosed for a business purpose. 
  • The categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold or disclosed for a business purpose, by category or categories of personal information for each category of third parties to whom the personal information was sold. 

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 verify your request, 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: 

  • 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 agreement with you. 
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities. 
  • Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality. 
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law. 
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act. 
  • Enable internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us. 
  • 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. 

To exercise the rights described above, please submit a verifiable request to us by emailing us at [email protected] or by calling us at (844) 484-8372 and requesting to speak with our privacy coordinator. 

Only you or a person that you authorize to act on your behalf may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. If you wish to authorize another to act on your behalf, please be advised that Vivera Pharmaceuticals may require that you provide the authorized agent with written permission to submit a request and verify your own identity directly with us, unless the authorized agent has a power of attorney. However, you may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. 

Our verification process works as follows. Before we may process a request, in order to protect your privacy, we will ask you to confirm a few pieces of information that we have on our records about you, for example: 

  • Your address 
  • Your zip code 
  • Your customer number or recent order number 
  • Your email address 

If your request is for deletion of personal information, we will need to re-verify you before we delete your information. 

You may make a verifiable consumer request up to two times within a 12-month period, without charge. Unfortunately, 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 that 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. 

We try to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension time period (up to 90 days). If you have an account with us, we will deliver our response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding receipt of your request. The response we provide will also explain any reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. 

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

Do Not Sell My Personal Information 

You have the right to direct us not to sell any personal information we collect. To exercise your right to opt-out, please send an email to [email protected] 

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. 

Changes in Notice 

If we decide to change our Notice in whole or in part, we will notify you of any material changes to our Notice as required by law. We encourage you to check regularly to see if our Privacy Policy or Notice has changed.
