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

- Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law;
- Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 seq.);
- 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 for the use of your personal information in such research;
- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us;
- Comply with a legal obligation; and
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided the personal information.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
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.
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
- Calling MOA at PROVIDE CONTACT NUMBER 952-883-8800 or
- Emailing MOA at email@example.com.
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 of that person and
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to the request.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity, or validate the authority and identity of the person registered with the California Secretary of State to authorized to act on your behalf, and confirm the personal information relates to you. 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.
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 the results of your request by your selected method, either 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 undue difficulty.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless such request is determined to be excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants such a fee, we will provide the basis for the decision to charge a fee and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
- Deny you services;
- Charge you different prices or rates for products or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or by imposing penalties;
- Provide you a different level or quality of product or services; or
- Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for products or services or a different level or quality of products or services.
