In this supplemental California Privacy Notice (“California Privacy Notice” or “Notice”), we, Avellino Lab USA, Inc. (“Avellino”), disclose information about our data processing practices as required by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) and other California specific requirements. This Notice applies solely to California residents and their Personal Information covered by California law.

California law gives residents certain rights, including: a right to be notified of (and to request more information about) our data collection practices; the categories of data we process; the categories of third parties with whom data is shared; the right to request disclosure (up to twice per year) of the personal information we have about you or have had within the last 12 months: the right to delete that information (under certain circumstances); the right to know if your data is being sold; the right to know what personal information is being sold and to opt-out of such sales (if applicable); the right to receive a copy of your information in a “portable” form so that you may transfer it to other services; and, the right to not be discriminated against for exercising these rights. This Notice provides details on how we honor those rights and the process for exercising them.

Regardless of your location and jurisdiction, Avellino may, at its sole discretion, choose to extend these rights to all individuals, and to comply with reasonable requests in the manner detailed below. We do not charge for these services. Where you are entitled to exercise a right, we will respond to your request within the timeframe set out by applicable law (for California residents this is typically within forty-five (45) days). Where we provide answers on a voluntary basis, we will provide a response within a timeframe that we deem reasonable.

This Notice is a part of, and must be read in the context of, our Privacy Notice and our HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices.

The CCPA provides You with specific rights regarding Your Personal Information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

You have the right to request that we provide certain information to you about our collection and use of your Personal Information over the past twelve (12) months. Once we receive and verify your request, we will provide you with certain information such as the categories of your Personal Information collected, the sources of your Personal Information, and the business purposes for collecting your Personal Information and any additional information as required by the CCPA.

Once we receive and verify your request, we will delete, and direct our service providers to delete, your Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies. These exceptions may include where the Personal Information is necessary to complete the transaction for which we collected the Personal Information, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, comply with our legal or contractual obligations including retention of records for billing, tax, laboratory quality assurance, or other required recordkeeping under applicable regulations, or make other internal and lawful uses of that Personal Information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

Making Requests

To make such a request, please send an email to privacy@avellino.com and please include the phrase “Personal Information Privacy Request” in the subject line, the domain name of the website you are inquiring about, along with your name, address and email address. You may also send us a written request to Avellino Lab USA, Inc., ATTN: Privacy Office, 4300 Bohannon Drive, Menlo Park, CA 94025. At our option, we may respond to such requests by providing instructions about how our users can exercise their options to prevent our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

Only you, or a person duly authorized on your behalf, may make a request related to your Personal Information. You may also make a request on behalf of your minor child. You can designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA on your behalf if:

  • The authorized agent is a natural person or a business entity registered with the Secretary of State of California; and
  • You sign a written declaration that you authorize the authorized agent to act on your behalf.

If you use an authorized agent to submit a request to exercise your right to know or your right to request deletion, please have the authorized agent take the following steps in addition to the steps described above:

  • Mail a certified copy of your written declaration authorizing the authorized agent to act on your behalf to the mailing address indicated above; and
  • Provide any information we request in our response to your email to verify your identity. The information that we ask you to provide to verify your identity will depend on your prior interactions with us and the sensitivity of the personal information at issue.

If you provide an authorized agent with power of attorney pursuant to Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465, it may not be necessary to perform these steps and we will respond to any request from such authorized agent in accordance with the CCPA upon providing us with satisfactory evidence of their power of attorney status in accordance with Probate Code 4303(a).

You may only make a request twice within a twelve (12) month period. Each request must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or that you have duly authorized the person making the request on your behalf. Your request must contain sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. In some instances, we may not be able to comply with your request, in which case we will respond with the reasons that prevent us from complying.

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA.
