This California Consumer Privacy Act Privacy Policy explains howCovered Care, LLC and Byte (collectively “we,” “us” and “our”) collect, use, and disclose personal information relating to California residents covered by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). This notice is provided pursuant to the CCPA.

Under the CCPA, ‘Personal Information’ is information that identifies, relates to, or could reasonably be linked directly or indirectly with a particular California resident. The CCPA, however, does not apply to certain information, such as information subject to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (“GLBA”).

The specific Personal Information that we collect, use, and disclose relating to a California resident covered by the CCPA will vary based on our relationship or interaction with that individual. For example, this Disclosure does not apply with respect to information that we collect about California residents who apply for or obtain our financial products and services for personal, family, or household purposes. For more information about how we collect, disclose, and secure information relating to these customers, please refer to our Privacy Notice [link to GLBA notice].

Keeping Personal Information secure is one of our most important priorities. Consistent with our obligations under applicable laws and regulations, we maintain physical, technical, electronic, procedural and organizational safeguards and security measures that are designed to protect personal data against accidental, unlawful, or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure, or access, whether it is processed by us or elsewhere.

Rights under the CCPA

If you make a Right to Access request, you will receive the following information about you:

This Right to Access is subject to certain restrictions and is not available to our employees and employees of our business partners and service providers also do not have a Right to Access under the CCPA.

Right to Request Deletion.  You have the right to request that we and our service providers delete any Personal Information about you that we have collected from you upon receipt of a verifiable request. This right is subject to the same exceptions as for Right to Access requests.

Submitting Requests.  You can submit your request by calling us at [800 number] or visiting our request website at https://www.  We will acknowledge receipt of your request and advise you how long we expect it will take to respond if we are able to verify your identity.We will work to process all verified requests within 45 days pursuant to the CCPA.

Verifying Requests.  To verify a California Consumer’s identity, we may request up to three pieces of Personal Information about you when you make a request to compare against our records. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity.  An authorized agent may submit a request on your behalf.If an authorized agent submits a request on your behalf, we may require proof of authorization and verification of identity directly from you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use Personal Information provided in your request to verify your identity. We reserve the right to take additional steps as necessary to verify the identity of California Consumers where we have reason to believe a request is fraudulent.

In some instances, we may not be able to honor your request. For example, we will not honor your request if we cannot verify your identity or if we cannot verify that you have the authority to make a request on behalf of another individual. Additionally, we will not honor your request where an exception applies, such as where the disclosure of Personal Information would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of another consumer or where the Personal Information that we maintain about you is not subject to the CCPA’s access or deletion rights.

We will advise you in our response if we are not able to honor your request. We will not provide social security numbers, driver’s license numbers or government issued identification numbers, financial account numbers, health care or medical identification numbers, account passwords or security questions and answers, or any specific pieces of information if the disclosure presents the possibility of unauthorized access that could result in identity theft or fraud or unreasonable risk to data or systems and network security.
