If we hold personal information about you that is incorrect, you have the right to tell us that it is incorrect and ask us to amend it. We will do this consistent with applicable law. If you would like to correct your personal information, please send an email to privacy@ElectroluxProfessional.com or call 1-888-994-7636.
SUBMITTING A VERIFIED CONSUMER REQUEST
California Request Process. If you reside in California, only you or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf may submit verified consumer requests to know information or for deletion. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child, if applicable. We will only use personal information provided in your verifiable consumer request to verify your identity or authority to make the request. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request. Such a request must provide sufficient information to allow Electrolux Professional to reasonably verify that you are (or are an authorized representative of) the person about whom Electrolux Professional collected the Personal Information, and describe your request with sufficient detail to allow Electrolux Professional to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. You may only make a verified consumer request to know information twice within a 12-month period.
Submitting Your Request. Your request will be verified using information you provide here. If you call 1-888-994-7636 you will be asked to provide the same information requested on the form for verification purposes.
Verifying Requests. Electrolux Professional will confirm receipt of your request within the time period prescribed by the CCPA/CPRA and/or its regulations, let you know how Electrolux Professional will process the request, and let you know Electrolux Professional’s verification process, and anticipated timeframe for response. Electrolux Professional may try to verify your request by asking you to provide certain information and matching it to the information Electrolux Professional maintains about you. Electrolux Professional will request at least two data points about you. Depending on the nature of your request, Electrolux Professional may require more data points to match and/or may require you to sign a declaration confirming under penalty of perjury that you are the consumer whose Personal Information is the subject of the request.
Response Timing and Format. Electrolux Professional will try to respond to a verified consumer request within forty five (45) days of receipt, but if Electrolux Professional requires more time to respond, it will let you know how long and why in writing. Electrolux Professional will respond to you by mail or electronically at your option. Any disclosures Electrolux Professional provides in response to your request will pertain only to the 12-month period immediately preceding receipt of the verifiable consumer request. If Electrolux Professional is unable to respond to the request, Electrolux Professional will explain why, if applicable. If Electrolux Professional is unable to verify your identity in connection with a request for specific pieces of information about you, Electrolux Professional will let you know (but will not disclose the specific pieces of information) and will evaluate the request as though it were a request for categories of Personal Information disclosed to third parties during the past 12 months. If Electrolux Professional denies a request due to conflict with federal or state law or an exception to the CCPA/CPRA, Electrolux Professional will explain the basis for the denial. If Electrolux Professional cannot verify your identity in connection with a request to disclose categories of information disclosed to third parties, Electrolux Professional will let you know, and will provide you information about its general business practices regarding collection, maintenance, and sale of Personal Information. If Electrolux Professional cannot verify the identity of an individual requesting deletion of personal data, Electrolux Professional will deny your request and will treat the request as a request to opt-out of sale. Electrolux Professional has no obligation to provide you with specific Personal Information if such disclosure creates a substantial, articulable, and unreasonable risk to security. In the event of unfounded or excessive requests, we may either charge a reasonable fee or refuse to act on the request, notifying you of our reason for refusing to act. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will notify you of the reason for that determination and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
USING AN AUTHORIZED AGENT TO SUBMIT A REQUEST
Only you or a person you authorize to act on your behalf may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. If you’re an authorized agent making a request you need to do the following:
- e-mail to Privacy@ElectroluxProfessional.com a copy of a power of attorney provided to you by the consumer, in compliance with California’s Probate Law; or
- e-mail to Privacy@ElectroluxProfessional.com proof of signed permission along with a copy of your ID and have the consumer directly confirm with us that they provided you permission to submit the request by sending an e-mail.
If you use an authorized agent, you may provide a power of attorney executed pursuant to California Probate Law.
YOUR RIGHT TO NON-DISCRIMINATION FOR THE EXERCISE OF A PRIVACY RIGHT
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA/CPRA rights. We will not:
- Deny you goods or services.
- Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
- Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services
