Under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, California residents have the right to request:
- to know additional information about whether and how we have collected, used, disclosed, and sold Personal Information about them
- to know specific pieces of Personal Information we have about them
- that we opt them out of the “sale” of their Personal Information (“Right to Opt Out”), which can be done at the below “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link
- the deletion of the Personal Information we have about them.
California residents also have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment if they exercise the rights list above.
Requests for Deletion and to Know About Information Collected
If you make a request for deletion of Personal Information or a request to know about Personal Information we have collected, we may require that you provide information and follow procedures so that we can verify the request and your jurisdiction before responding to it. The verification steps we take may differ depending on the request you make. We will match the information that you provide in your request to information we already have on file to verify your identity. If we are able to verify your request, we will process it. If we cannot verify your request, we may ask you for additional information to help us verify your request.
California residents will be required to submit their first and last name and email address and may also be asked to provide their telephone number or address so that we can verify the request. Please provide as much of the requested information as possible to help us verify the request. We will only use the information received in a request for the purposes of responding to the request.
California law permits California residents to use an authorized agent to make privacy rights requests. We require the authorized agent to provide proof of the California resident’s written permission (for example, a power of attorney) that shows the authorized agent has the authority to submit a request for the California resident. An authorized agent must follow the process described below to make a request. We will additionally require the authorized agent to verify his/her own identity.
Exercising the Right to Deletion and to Know About Information Collected
California residents may exercise their right to deletion and to know about information collected by:
Exercising the Right to Opt Out
California residents may exercise their right to opt out by:
You may submit a request to opt out through an authorized agent. If you do so, we will follow the same verification procedures as described above for requests for deletion and requests to know about information collected.
Exercising Your Rights Across Multiple Urban One Services.
We avoid sharing identifiable information across our family of Urban One brands and affiliates. If you make a CCPA rights request on one site, we may be unable to apply that request to all the Urban One branded sites you use. If you use multiple Urban One Services and wish to make an access request, deletion request, or opt-out request related to more than one of them, the best way to do that is to submit a separate request on each Urban One Service using the rights request web form linked below.
Other California Requirements
California minors under 18 years old may request the removal of any information that they post to the Urban One Services by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon such request, Urban One will anonymize, or remove from public view, any content posted by a minor to one of its websites, unless required by law to retain such content or information.
Urban One does not currently take actions to respond to “Do Not Track” signals because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a standard once one is created.
Under California’s “Shine the Light” law, California residents who provide certain personal information (as defined by California Civil Code §1798.83) in obtaining products or services for personal, family, or household use are entitled to request and obtain from us once a calendar year information about the customer information we shared, if any, with other businesses for their own direct marketing uses. If applicable, this information would include the categories of customer information shared, the names and addresses of those businesses with which we shared customer information for the immediately prior calendar year, and descriptions of the likely types of marketing the third parties would send.
To obtain this information from us, please contact us using the “How to Contact Us” information below with “Request for California Privacy Information” on the subject line and in the body of your message. If you are a California resident, we will provide the requested information to you at your email address in response.
Please be aware that not all information sharing is covered by the “Shine the Light” requirements, and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response.
