If you would like to request deletion of Personal Information, please see the section below which explains how to do so. If you do not have an account with Innovation Bakers, we may ask for some Personal Information in order to verify your identity and your rights to the data subject to your request.
Right to Opt-Out. Innovation Bakers does not sell your Personal Information to third parties as described in the CCPA. However, if you would like to opt-out of marketing communications, please see the section above titled “Opting-In and Opting-Out”.
Designating an Authorized Agent. California law permits California residents to designate an agent to manage their rights under California law. If you would like to designate an agent to manage your privacy preferences, you may do so using the mechanisms noted below under “Exercising California Privacy Rights”. Note that If you do not have an account with Innovation Bakers, we may ask for some Personal Information in order to verify your identity and your rights to the data subject to your request. We will also need sufficient Personal Information about your authorized agent to be able to identify them. As part of this process, you must have permission from your authorized agent to disclose their Personal Information to us for the purpose of acting as your agent.
