Your California Privacy Rights

If you are a California resident, you have certain privacy rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA Rights”). This section describes those rights and how you can exercise them with the NLM Foundation.

You can request to know what personal information we have collected, used, disclosed, and sold in the preceding 12 months. You can also request that we delete your personal information. We may not delete all of your personal information if one of the following exceptions applies:

  • Transactional: to complete a transaction for which the personal information was collected, provide a good or service requested by you, or perform a contract we have with you;
  • Security: to detect data security incidents;
  • Error Correction: to debug or repair any errors;
  • Legal: to protect against fraud or illegal activity or to comply with applicable law or a legal obligation, or exercise rights under the law, such as the right to free speech; or
  • Internal Use: to use your personal information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information (i.e. to improve our services).

To submit a request to know or a request to delete, please click here. In order to verify your identity, we will send you a verification email. In order to designate an authorized agent to act on your behalf you must provide the authorized agent with written permission to do so, and your authorized agent must submit that written proof by mail or e-mail to the address specified in this Policy (see Contact Information) so that it is received prior to the time the agent makes the request on your behalf. A request to know or a request to delete may alternatively be initiated by calling us at (781) 237-1311. If you wish to make multiple requests under this section, we recommend sending the deletion request last, as we will not be able to fulfill your other requests once we have deleted your information.

We do not and will not sell any personal information (as “sell” is defined in CCPA ). We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA Rights and, to the extent the NLM Foundation is providing goods or services, we will not deny you goods or services, charge you a different price, or provide you with a lesser quality of goods or services if you exercise any of your CCPA Rights.

The date the privacy policy was last revised is identified at the top of the page.
