The rights in this section apply solely to California residents, and do not apply to individuals living elsewhere. The following rights are not absolute, and we may be entitled to refuse requests, wholly or partly, where exceptions under applicable law apply. Any terms used in this notice and policy that are defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this Policy.

  • Right to be informed: You have the right to be informed of the specific personal information we may collect about you, the categories of personal information collected about you, the sources from which your personal information was collected, and the business or commercial purposes for which your information is used, disclosed or sold, as well as the categories of third parties to whom your information is disclosed or sold.
  • Right of access and to obtain a copy: You have the right to request access to and obtain a copy, no more than twice in a twelve-month period, of your personal information collected during the 12 months before your request. If requested, we shall provide you with a copy of your Personal Information which we collect as permitted by the CCPA. You also have the right to receive your Personal Information in a structured and commonly used format so that it can be transferred to another entity (“data portability”).
  • Right of deletion: You have the right to request that your personal information be deleted, subject to certain exceptions. For example, your request to delete is subject to the need to complete transactions for which the personal information was collected and comply with legal obligations.

If you would like to exercise your rights, please contact The Larkin Company via the following means. You should include your name, address, email address and a description of the request being made.

You may also designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf. You may make such a designation by providing the agent with your written and signed permission to act on your behalf and by directly confirming with us that you have provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request. As permitted by law, we may require you to verify your identity in response to a request even if you choose to use an agent. The authorized agent will also need to verify its own identity directly with us.

After you or your authorized agent submit a request, we require a high degree of certainty that we have verified that the requester is, in fact, the consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request. We will endeavor to do so using the personal information that we, or one of our vendors, consultants, or service providers, have about the consumer. We may need to obtain additional personal information from the consumer or from other third-party sources to verify the requester’s or authorized agent’s identity, in which case, such additional personal information will be used solely for verification purposes. If we are unable to verify your identity, we reserve the right to deny your requests.

Other California Privacy Rights: California’s “Shine the Light” law (California Civil Code section 1798.83) gives customers who are California residents the right to ask, once a year, (1) what personal information was disclosed to third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year; and (2) the identities of the companies with whom the information was shared. The terms “customers” and “personal information” have the meaning given by the Shine the Light (California Civil Code Sec 1798.83).

We do not share personal information, as defined in California Code Civil Section 1798.83, with third parties for their direct marketing purposes absent your consent. If you are a California resident, you may request information about our compliance with California’s Shine the Light law by sending us a written request to or by mailing us a letter to: The Larkin Company, 1376 Lead Hill Blvd, Ste #150, Roseville, CA 95661, (Attention: Privacy Inquiry). Any such written request must include “California Shine the Light Law Request” in the first line of the description and include your name, street address, city, state, and zip code. We are only required to respond to one Shine the Light law request per customer per year, and we are not required to respond to requests made by means other than through this email address and mailing address. Further note that “Shine the Light” rights and CCPA rights are provided under different statutes and must be exercised separately.
