4.1. Your rights. If you are a Virginia resident at the time we collect your personal data you may be able to assert the rights listed below. Please note that VCDPA permits us to deny a request: (a) when denial of the request is required or authorized by law; (b) when granting the request would have a negative impact on another’s privacy; (c) to protect our rights and properties; (d) where the request is excessive or overly burdensome, or (e) for other lawful reasons. If we deny your request, we will explain the reasons in our response.
- Right to access. You may have the right to confirm with us whether we are processing your personal data. You may also request access to such personal data.
- Right to correct. Subject to certain exceptions, you have the right to request that we rectify, correct, or update your personal data held by us that is inaccurate.
- Right to delete. Under certain circumstances, you may have the right to request that we delete the personal data that we hold about you. We may refuse your right to delete if it is reasonably necessary for us to provide a service requested by you; to maintain functionality and ensure security of our systems; to enable solely expected internal uses of your personal data; to exercise a right provided by law; or to comply with a legal obligation.
- Right to opt-out of sale. You have the right to opt-out of the sale of your personal data.
- Right to opt-out of profiling. Virginia users have the right to opt-out of “profiling,” which the VCDPA defines as solely automated processing of personal data to make certain decisions with a legal or similarly-significant effect on you (such as employment decisions, credit decisions, and access to basic goods and services). Inspired Taste does not engage in profiling as described above.
- Right Against Discrimination. You have the right not to be discriminated against for exercising any of the rights described in this section. We will not discriminate against you for exercising or requesting to exercise your rights.
4.2. How to exercise your rights. To exercise any of the above rights, please email Inspired Taste at firstname.lastname@example.org. For us to fulfill your request, you must provide sufficient information for us to reasonably verify that you are the consumer from whom we collected the personal data. The information you send for us to verify your identity will be used for this purpose only. If we are unable to verify your identity or if we suspect fraudulent activity, we may decline to comply with your request.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of receipt. If we require more time, we will notify you in writing of the reason and extension period. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. If we cannot comply with part or all of your request, we will explain the reasons in our response and provide instructions on how to appeal. Within 60 days of receipt of an appeal, we will provide a written explanation of the reasons for our decision.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable request to exercise the above rights, up to twice annually. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
