CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

This section is applicable to residents of California. If you are a resident of California, you have certain rights described below. The following do not apply to individuals who do not live in California on a permanent basis.

Rights Provided by California Civil Code Section 1798.83

A California resident who has provided personal data to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes (a “California Customer”) may request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. In general, if the business has made such a disclosure of personal data, upon receipt of a request by a California Customer, the business is required to provide a list of all third parties to whom personal data was disclosed in the preceding calendar year, as well as a list of the categories of personal data that were disclosed. California Customers may request further information about our compliance with this law by mailing us at YMT Vacations, Legal Department, 400 Continental Blvd, Suite 200, El Segundo, CA 90245. Please note that we are only required to respond to two requests per California Customer each year under Code Section 1798.83.

Rights Under the California Consumer Privacy Act

This section of our Privacy Policy provides California residents with a comprehensive description of YMT Vacations’ online and offline practices regarding the collection, use, disclosure, and sale of personal information and the rights of California consumers regarding their personal information under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). This section applies to all California residents (but not including legal entities, such as companies). The section will not apply, however, if YMT Vacations does not collect any personal information about you or if all of the information we collect is exempt from the statute (for example, the CCPA does not protect information that is already protected by certain other privacy laws, and it does not protect information that is already publicly available).

You have a Right to Know About Personal Information Collected, Disclosed, or Sold.

The above sections describe how we collect, use, and disclose your personal information. YMT Vacations does not sell the personal information.

If you would like to request a copy of your information, please download and complete the Access Request Application Form available Here. Mail the completed form to us at YMT Vacations, Legal Department, 400 Continental Blvd, Suite 200, El Segundo, CA 90245.

California consumers have a right to request the deletion of their personal information collected or maintained by YMT Vacations. If you would like information about you to be deleted, please download and complete the Deletion Request Application Form available Here. Mail the completed form to us at YMT Vacations, Legal Department, 400 Continental Blvd, Suite 200, El Segundo, CA 90245.

Right to Opt-Out of the Sale of Personal Information

California consumers have a right to opt-out of the sale of their personal information. YMT Vacations however, does not sell Personal Information.

Right to Non-Discrimination for the Exercise of a Consumer’s Privacy Rights

You have a right not to receive discriminatory treatment by YMT Vacations for exercising any of your privacy rights conferred by the CCPA. YMT Vacations will not discriminate against any California consumer because such person exercised any of the consumer’s rights under CCPA, including, but not limited to:

  • Denying goods or services.
  • Charging different prices or rates for goods and services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties.
  • Providing a different level or quality of goods or services.
  • Suggesting that the consumer will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

YMT Vacations may, however, charge a different price or rate, or provide a different level or quality of goods or services, if that difference is related to the value provided to you by your data.

Authorized Agents

If you would like, you may designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA on your behalf. We will deny requests from agents that do not submit proof of authorization from you. To verify that an authorized agent has authority to act for you, we may require a copy of a power of attorney or require that you provide the authorized agent with written permission and verify your own identity with us.

SECURITY STATMENT

No data transmissions over the Internet are completely secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us over the Internet. You transmit such information at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. We use reasonable efforts to protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach or other unintended, unauthorized or criminal activity.

CHANGES TO THIS POLICY

Any changes to this Policy will be either posted on our website, brochure and/or made available on request. In the event we materially change the way in which we use your information, we will provide you with at least 30 days’ notice and ask you to affirmatively accept the changes.
