Your Rights and Choices

The CCPA provides consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

Right to Know and Data Portability

You have the right to request that Visier disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we disclose to you:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you;
  • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you;
  • Our business or commercial purposes for collecting that personal information;
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information;
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request);
  • The categories of personal information that were disclosed for business purposes in the last 12 months preceding the verifiable consumer request.

In accordance with our obligations under the CCPA, we do not disclose social security number, driver’s license number or any government ID, financial account number, health insurance or medical ID number, account passwords, or security questions and answers.

Deletion Requests

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 confirm your verifiable consumer request, we delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

Exercising Your Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by:

Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12 month period. This verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we are unable to verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. This may include matching information you provide with data we have on you such as email address, phone number, a recent communication we may have sent, or an event you may have attended. We only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to confirm and authenticate your identity or authority to make the request.

Response Time and Format

We endeavor to respond to your verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) calendar days of receipt. If we require an extension (up to 90 days) we inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We deliver our written response by mail or electronically at your choice.

The disclosures we provide only cover the 12 month period preceding the verifiable request receipt. If applicable, our response explains the reasons why we are unable to comply with a request. For data portability requests, we provide your personal information in a readily useable format that allows you to transmit the information to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that a fee is required, we tell you why and provide a cost estimate before completing your request.


We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under CCPA. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

  • Deny you goods or services;
  • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services;
  • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services;
  • Suggest you receive a different price or rate or different level of quality of goods or services.
