IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL PRIVACY INFORMATION FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
The information below should be read in conjunction with the other sections of our policy above.
In this section, OPEX Corporation provides information for California residents, as required under California privacy laws, including the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), which requires that we provide California residents certain specific information about how we handle their personal information, whether collected online or offline.
Under the CCPA, “personal information” is any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California resident. It does not include publicly available data as defined by the CCPA.
Except as otherwise set forth below under “Right to Opt-out of the Sale of Personal Information” and the “Right of Non-Discrimination,”” this section does not apply to California residents with whom we transact or communicate solely in the context of providing or receiving a product or service to or from a company that employs such residents or that engages such residents as contractors. This section also does not apply to the personal information we collect about job applicants, independent contractors, or current or former full-time, part-time and temporary employees and staff, officers, directors, or owners of OPEX Corporation or its affiliated companies.
Categories of Personal Information that We Collect, Sell, and Disclose: The table below sets out generally the categories of personal information (as defined by the CCPA) about California residents that we collect, sell, and disclose to others for a business purpose. We collect these categories of personal information from the sources described above in COLLECTING INFORMATION, and for the purposes described above in USING YOUR INFORMATION. Our collection, use, and disclosure of personal information about a California resident will vary depending upon the circumstances and nature of our interactions or relationship with such resident.
- Right to Opt-out of the Sale of Personal Information. California residents have the right to opt-out of our sale of their personal information. Opt-out rights can be exercised by contacting OPEX as set forth above in QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS. When you contact us, please indicate in the subject line that you are contacting us concerning the “California Consumer Privacy Act.”
- Notice at Collection. At or before the point of collection, notice must be provided to California residents of the categories of personal information collected and the purposes for which such information is used.
- Verifiable Requests to Delete and Requests to Know. Subject to certain exceptions, California residents have the right to make the following requests, at no charge: Request to Delete: California residents have the right to request the deletion of their personal information that we have collected about them and to have such personal information deleted, except where an exemption applies. Request to Know: California residents have the right to request and, subject to certain exemptions, receive a copy of the specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about them in the prior twelve months and to have this delivered, free of charge, either (a) by mail or (b) electronically in a portable and, to the extent technically feasible, readily useable format that allows the individual to transmit this information to another entity without hindrance. California residents also have the right to request that we provide them certain information about how we have handled their personal information in the prior twelve months, including the:
-categories of sources of personal information;
-business and/or commercial purposes for collecting and selling their personal information;
-categories of third parties/with whom we have disclosed or shared their personal information;
-categories of personal information that we have disclosed or shared with a third party for a business purpose;
-categories of personal information collected; and

California residents may make Requests to Know no more than twice every twelve months.

When you contact us, please indicate in the subject line that you are contacting us with regard to the “California Consumer Privacy Act.” We will respond to verifiable requests received from California consumers as required by law.
- Right to Non-Discrimination. The CCPA prohibits discrimination against California residents for exercising their rights under the CCPA. Discrimination may exist where a business denies or provides a different level or quality of goods or services, or charges (or suggests that it will charge) different prices, rates, or penalties on residents who exercise their CCPA rights, unless doing so is reasonably related to the value provided to the business by the residents’ data.
- Financial Incentives. A business may offer financial incentives for the collection, sale, or deletion of California residents’ personal information, provided the incentive is not unjust, unreasonable, coercive, or usurious, and is made available in compliance with applicable transparency, informed consent, and opt-out requirements. California residents have the right to be notified of any financial incentives offers and their material terms, the right to opt-out of such incentives at any time, and may not be included in such incentives without their prior informed opt-in consent. We do not offer any incentives at this time.
