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. 

Right to Designate an Authorized Agent

Users of the Services can designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA if they provide that agent with their User ID information. Please note that this action would allow such agent access to all information contained in the Application. If a user chooses to take this action, they do so entirely at their own risk and we disclaim all responsibility and liability for how such agent may access, use or disclose the information they obtain. 

The agent will need to have your User ID to make a request. We are not able to identify a user based on name or email address since we do not collect this information. Agents must submit requests to privacyact.fastnews@mobileposse.com. Users can provide their User ID information using the process described below. 

Limitations on the Number of Requests

You 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 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 cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.  If we are unable to link your request with your User ID, we will provide you instructions on how you can locate your User ID on your device. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.  We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request. We will retain this information in accordance with the CCPA.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request 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, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt.  The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

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.

Our Services are not intended for children under 16 years of age. No one under age 16 may provide any personal information on our Services. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 16. If you are under 16, do not use or provide any information on our Services. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 16 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information.
