12. CONTROLS FOR DO-NOT-TRACK FEATURES

In addition, we may offer you financial incentives for the collection, sale, and retention and use of your personal information as permitted by the CCPA that can, without limitation, result in reasonably different prices, rates, or quality levels.

Exercising California Privacy Rights

Please use this link or send a written request with your first name, last name, street address, city, state, zip code and email address you used on our site, Written request should be mailed to: Black Bear Diner ATTN: Privacy Desk P.O. Box 991850 Redding, CA 96099-1850. You may also call 833-203-4993.

How we will verify that it is really you submitting the request:

When you submit a Right to Know, Right to Access, or Right to Delete consumer request through one of the methods provided above, we will ask you to provide some information in order to verify your identity and respond to your request. Specifically, we will ask you to verify information that can be used to link your identity to particular records in our possession, which depends on the nature of your relationship and interaction with us. For example, we may need you to provide your name, address, email, phone number, and information regarding the nature of your interaction or transaction. If your sole interaction with us was as a website visitor, then in order to verify your identify, we may need to ask you to provide your name, email, phone number, IP address, device ID, browser ID, and/or cookie ID.

How to authorize an agent to act on your behalf

You can authorize someone else as an Authorized Agent who can submit a consumer request on your behalf. To do so, you must either (a) execute a valid, verifiable, and notarized Power of Attorney or (b) provide other written authorization that we can then verify. When we receive a consumer request submitted on your behalf by an Authorized Agent, that person will be asked to provide written proof that they have your permission to act on your behalf, and we will also contact you and ask you for information to verify your own identity directly with us and not through your Authorized Agent.
