California Resident Privacy Rights

If you are a California resident, California law may provide you with additional rights regarding our use of your personal information; subject to exclusions from the rights granted under California law with respect to certain information governed by certain sector-specific privacy laws.

California Resident Rights

Subject to certain exceptions under California law, California residents may have the following rights with respect to their personal information collected by Naturally Slim:

  • The right to know and access. California residents have the right to request Naturally Slim disclose (i) a copy of the personal information that we collect about you; (ii) the categories of personal information that we collected about you in the preceding 12 months; (iii) the categories of purposes for which such personal information was disclosed in the preceding 12 months; (iv) the categories of sources such personal information was collected for; and (v) the categories of third parties such personal information may have been shared with.
  • The right to deletion. California residents have the right to request that Naturally Slim delete the personal information that we or our vendors collected about you. There may be circumstances under which we will be unable to delete your personal information, such as if we need to comply with our legal obligations or complete a transaction for which your personal information was collected. If we are unable to comply with your request for deletion, we will let you know the reason why.
  • The right to equal service. If a California resident chooses to exercise any of these rights, Naturally Slim will not discriminate against the California resident in anyway. If a California resident exercises certain rights, such California resident may be unable to use or access certain features of the Sites.
Exercising California Resident Rights

To exercise any of these rights, contact us at 855-999-7549 or complete the form available at https://www.naturallyslim.com/imgD/NS_CCPA_consumer_request_form.pdf and send it to privacy@naturallyslim.com. In connection with submitting a request, you must provide the following information: name, email, phone number, address and employer or insurance carrier associated with and you must state what type of request you are making.

Only a California resident, or someone legally authorized to act on such California resident’s behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to his or her personal information. In general, Naturally Slim has the right to require you to provide written permission granting authority to your representative and for your agent to verify its identity directly with us, and we may deny a request from your representative who does not submit proof of authorization as we request.

A California resident may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must provide sufficient information that allows Naturally Slim to reasonably verify the requestor is the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative and describe the request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. Naturally Slim cannot respond to a request or provide personal information if we cannot verify the identity or authority to make the request.

Naturally Slim will endeavor to confirm receipt of a request within 10 days following submission and provide information about how we will process the request. Naturally Slim will endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to an additional 45 days), we will provide notice in writing explaining the reason for the extended time period.

Making a verifiable consumer request does not require a California resident to create an account with us. We may deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the request receipt date. If we deny a request, we will provide a response explaining the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.

How We Respond to “Do Not Track” Signals

Some web browsers have “Do Not Track” or similar features that allow you to tell each website you visit that you do not want your activities on that website tracked. At present, the Sites do not respond to “Do Not Track” signals and consequently, the Sites will continue to collect information about you even if your browser’s “Do Not Track” feature is activated.

“Shine the Light” Law

California's "Shine the Light" law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our Site that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to privacy@naturallyslim.com.

Nevada residents may have certain rights to opt-out of sales of their personal information under Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 603A.
