In the course of using the Sites, Standard Process may ask users for their name, email address, postal address, mobile or other telephone number, fax number, care provider’s name, personal health information and payment information, and other relevant information. Standard Process may collect additional information depending on how you are using the Sites, such as:
In many cases, users choose the amount of information they supply. There may be instances in which some of the information that we ask users to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. In such cases, if users do not provide mandatory personal information with respect to a particular activity, users will not be able to engage in that activity. Standard Process also may collect certain information that is not personally identifiable when you visit our Sites, such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, the domain name of your Internet service provider, aggregate data about the number of visits to the Sites, and/or aggregate data about the pages visited.
Information gathered through the Sites may be transferred, used, and stored in the United States and in foreign jurisdictions in which we, our agents, customers, and other users of the Sites are located, and by accessing the Sites, you consent to the transfer, use, and storage of your information in those jurisdictions.
Standard Process uses non-personally identifiable information—whether non-identifying, de-identified, anonymized, or aggregated (collectively, “De-identified Data”)—to improve the design and content of the Sites and to enable Standard Process to personalize your online experience. Standard Process may use the De-identified Data to analyze the Sites’ usage as well as create services and/or products to fit your needs. Also, Standard Process may share this De-identified Data with Standard Process’ related entities, advertisers, partners, and/or other third-party vendors. Standard Process shall own such De-identified Data and may maintain copies of such as part of its records.
Except as otherwise indicated, Standard Process uses the personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”):
The De-identified Data and Personal Information may be disclosed, transferred, assigned, licensed, distributed, and/or sold as part of Standard Process or its assets. In addition, if Standard Process becomes the subject of a bankruptcy or insolvency proceeding, whether voluntary or involuntary, Standard Process or its trustee in bankruptcy may disclose, sell, assign, license, or otherwise transfer such information in a transaction approved by the appropriate court.
The Sites are not intended for children under the age of 16. Standard Process does not knowingly collect personal information from users under 16 years of age.

If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under the age of 16, please contact us at email@example.com.
The Site does not respond to “do not track” requests. All traffic is treated as equal and processed the same. If you desire to have your browsing be private, we suggest that you use your web browser’s private or incognito function, or similar options.

Standard Process uses reasonable efforts to implement security measures designed to help protect against the risk of loss, misuse, and alteration of any information under Standard Process’ control. Nevertheless, please keep in mind that such security measures may not prevent all loss, misuse, or alteration of information on the Sites, and transmission of information over the Internet and on mobile platforms is not always secure, which means we cannot and do not guarantee the security or confidentiality of any information that you provide to us. Given this reality, your use of our Sites and your decision to provide personal information to us is at your own risk. Standard Process is not responsible for any damages or liabilities relating to any such security failures.
Furthermore, email is not a secure form of communication. Please do not send us your Social Security number, credit card number, or other sensitive personal information via email. Although we will take reasonable measures to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to and from our Sites or over mobile networks; any transmission is at your own risk.

We may use third-party analytics on the Sites to enable us to continually improve the content we offer to you, for systems administration purposes, to evaluate your use of the Sites, to compile reports on activity, to analyze performance metrics, and to collect and evaluate other information related to the Sites. Some of our analytics can be used to track users over time, for geo-location purposes, and across third-party websites.

We may use the information we collect to serve you more relevant advertisements. Further, we may collect information about where you saw the ads we serve you and what ads you clicked on. You may see certain ads on the Sites or across other websites on the internet based on information we or the third-party analytics we use have collected. This may include information from your past visits to the Sites and other information that was collected through automatic means (such as cookies and web beacons).

The CCPA provides California residents with specific rights regarding their personal information, described below. Below are your CCPA rights and how to exercise those rights.
You have the right to request that Standard Process disclose certain information to you about its collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. You may request:
You have the right to request that Standard Process delete some or all of the personal information that it has collected from you and retained, subject to a number of exceptions. Standard Process is not required to delete personal information that is: (i) necessary to complete a transaction with you or for warranty or product recalls; (ii) used for security purposes, to prevent fraud, to fix errors, or to comply with law; (iii) reasonable for Standard Process to use for internal purposes given its relationship with you; or (iv) compatible with the context in which you provided the information. The list of exceptions above is not exhaustive, and we may also deny a deletion request as otherwise permitted by law.
You have the right to request that Standard Process amend your personal information if it is inaccurate or outdated, such as an outdated address. Standard Process is not required to correct information that is subjective, such as an opinion.
In certain circumstances, you have the right to limit our non-essential use of your personal information, including Sensitive Personal Information.
To exercise your rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to Standard Process by either:
Only you, or a person that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. If you are making a request on behalf of another person, you must provide written legal documentation that you are authorized to act on behalf of that individual.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
Standard Process may not be able to fulfill your request or provide you with personal information if it cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. To verify your identity, Standard Process may request up to three pieces of personal information about you, and Standard Process reserves the right to take additional steps as necessary to verify your identity if it has reason to believe a request is fraudulent.
Standard Process endeavors to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If Standard Process requires more time (up to 90 days), it will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. Standard Process will deliver the written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
Any disclosures Standard Process provides will only cover the 12-month period preceding the date it receives your verifiable consumer request. The response Standard Process provides will also explain the reasons it cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, Standard Process 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 hindrance.
Standard Process does not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If Standard Process determines that the request warrants a fee, it will tell you why it made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
You have the right to not be discriminated against for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, Standard Process will not:
