Requests to Exercise Your Rights

RIGHT TO KNOW REQUEST - Under the CCPA, you have a right to request information about our collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information over the prior 12 months, and ask that we provide you with the following information:

1.Categories of and specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you.

2.Categories of sources from which we collect personal information.

RIGHT TO DELETE REQUEST - You also have a right to request that we delete personal information, subject to certain exceptions. You may exercise your right by emailing

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:

1.Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, or otherwise perform our contract with you.

2.Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.

3.Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.

4.Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.

5.Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).

6.Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information's deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research's achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.

7.Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.

8.Comply with a legal obligation.

9.Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

We will delete or deidentify personal information not subject to one of these exceptions from our records and will direct our service providers to take similar action. In some cases, we will deidentify or anonymize your personal information in order to prevent fraud or determine whether you are a former user if you decide to re-register on the Acquire platform.

HOUSEHOLD REQUESTS - We currently do not collect household data. If all the members of a household make a Right to Know or Right to Delete request, we will respond as if the requests are individual requests.

REQUESTS, GENERALLY - Please note, if you do not have a registered buyer or seller account on the Acquire platform we will not have enough information about you to verify your Right to Know and Right to Delete requests, as we do not keep sufficient information necessary to reidentify and link you to a prior visit to the Acquire website where data may have been collected. As such, we will be unable to verify and honor your requests. You may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information twice per 12-month period. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA.

REQUESTS MADE THROUGH AGENTS - You may designate, in writing or through a power of attorney, an authorized agent to make requests on your behalf to exercise your rights. Before accepting such a request from an agent, we will require the agent to provide proof you have authorized it to act on your behalf, and we may need you to verify your identity directly with us.

Sale of Personal Information

We do not sell your personal information to anyone.
