At Brandify, we believe in supporting the rights of consumers. We also believe in providing our clients with the support required to navigate and adhere to these requirements in the context of our mutual activities.
On this page, we will describe how Brandify complies and helps its clients to comply with the principles of consumer privacy in general, and in particular with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union (EU) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in California.
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and verify your request, we will disclose to you any categories and specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you. Our communication will include the categories or sources from which the personal information is collected, the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling the personal information, and the categories of third parties with whom we may share personal information.
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 also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12 month period.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. We will therefore request that you provide sufficient information to allow us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative, and describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We endeavor to respond to verifiable consumer requests within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically according to your preference. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12 month period preceding receipt of the verifiable consumer request. The response we provide may also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request, unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. 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.
To make a request for information, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the Personal Information Request Form on our "Do Not Sell My Personal Information" page. We will contact you to verify your identity before completing your request.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect on May 25, 2018. Though the rules are designed to protect the privacy rights of people in the EU, they are being implemented by companies who do business outside the EU, because most online services are available globally.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) was voted into law in 2018 and is in effect as of January 1, 2020. The act requires that companies doing business in California provide protections for California citizens when it comes to buying, selling, sharing, storing, or utilizing personally identifiable information (PII) of various kinds.
GDPR outlines several specific privacy rights for persons in the EU. These rights relate to personal data such as your name, email address, phone number, profile photo, and anything else that could be used to identify you.
The right to be informed: A right to be informed about the use of your personal data;
The right of access: A right to access personal data we hold about you;
The right to rectification: A right to correct personal data about you that may be incomplete or inaccurate;
The right to be forgotten: In certain circumstances you can ask us to delete the personal data we have about you, unless there is a legal requirement on our part to keep it;
The right to restrict processing: A right for you to request a suspension of personal data processing;
The right to data portability: A right to ask us for a copy of your personal data; and
The right to object: A right for you to object to us with respect to our use of your personal data.
Similarly to GDPR, California’s CCPA regulation defines certain rights that apply to all California citizens who interact with companies doing business in the state. Rights under CCPA are outlined below.
The right to information: The right to request that a business that collects personal information about the consumer disclose to the consumer the following:
(1) The categories of personal information it has collected about that consumer.
(2) The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected.
(3) The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information.
(4) The categories of third parties with whom the business shares personal information.
(5) The specific pieces of personal information it has collected about that consumer.
The right to disclose: The right to request that a business that sells a consumer’s personal information, or that discloses it for a business purpose, disclose to that consumer:
(1) The categories of personal information that the business collected about the consumer.
(2) The categories of personal information that the business sold about the consumer and the categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold, by category or categories of personal information for each third party to whom the personal information was sold.
(3) The categories of personal information that the business disclosed about the consumer for a business purpose.
The right not to sell: The right, at any time, to direct a business that sells personal information about the consumer to third parties not to sell the consumer’s personal information by opting out through a link on the business’s Internet homepage, titled “Do Not Sell My Personal Information.”
The right to destroy: The right to request that a business delete any personal information about the consumer which the business has collected from the consumer
The right to non-discrimination: A right that guarantees we will not alter any prices or services offered to you if you choose to exercise these privacy rights.
To exercise any of your rights, or if you have any concerns regarding data use or privacy, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or submit a request on our “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” page.
