Privacy Rights for California Residents

If you are a California resident, California law requires us to provide you with some additional information regarding your rights with respect to your “personal information” (as defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”)).

If you are a California resident, the CCPA allows you to make certain requests about your personal information. Specifically, the CCPA allows you to request us to:

  • Inform you about the categories of personal information we collect or disclose about you; the categories of sources of such information; the business or commercial purpose for collecting your personal information; and the categories of third parties with whom we share/disclose personal information.
  • Provide access to and/or a copy of certain personal information we hold about you.
  • Delete certain personal information we have about you.
  • Provide you with information about the financial incentives that we offer to you, if any.

The CCPA further provides you with the right to not be discriminated against (as provided for in applicable law) for exercising your rights.

Please note that certain information may be exempt from such requests under California law. We also will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before responding to a request, which may include, at a minimum, depending on the sensitivity of the information you are requesting and the type of request you are making, verifying your name, email address, phone number, or other information. You are also permitted to designate an authorized agent to submit certain requests on your behalf. In order for an authorized agent to be verified, you must provide the authorized agent with signed, written permission to make such requests or a power of attorney. We may also follow up with you to verify your identity before processing the authorized agent’s request. Certain information may be exempt from such requests under applicable law. For example, we need certain types of information so that we can comply with a legal obligation. In some circumstances if you still ask us to delete your information, you may no longer be able to access or use our services. If you would like further information regarding your legal rights under California law or would like to exercise any of them, please email or call 1-800-352-5845.

California residents may opt out of the “sale” of their personal information. We do not “sell” California residents’ personal information under the CCPA, based on our current understanding of the definition of sell. We do share certain information as set forth in the “How We Share Data” section section of our Privacy Policy and allow third parties to collect certain information about your activity, for example through cookies, as explained in the “Cookies and Online Analytics” section of our Privacy Policy.

With regard to personal information collected through the Reading Plus application, you should direct requests to exercise applicable rights to the local education agency on whose behalf we handle the data. If we receive a request from an individual directly in relation to information collected through the Reading Plus application, we will refer that request to the appropriate local education agency and await each local education agency’s instructions on how to handle it.
