Your Rights and Choices

Right to Know and Data Portability

You have the right to request that We disclose certain information to You about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months (the “right to know”). Once We receive your request and confirm your identity (see Exercising Your Rights to Know or Delete), We will disclose to You:

  • The categories of personal information We collected about You.
  • The categories of sources for the personal information We collected about You.
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting that personal information.

  • The specific pieces of personal information We collected about You (also called a data portability request).

Right to Delete

You have the right to request that We delete any of your personal information that We collected from You and retained, subject to certain exceptions (the “right to delete”). Once We receive your request and confirm your identity (see Exercising Your Rights to Know or Delete), We will review your request to see if an exception allowing us to retain the information applies. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

  • Complete the transaction for which We collected the personal information, provide a service that You requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with You, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, or otherwise perform our contract with You.
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
  • Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  • Comply with a legal obligation.
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which You provided it.

We will delete or deidentify personal information not subject to one of these exceptions from our records and will direct our service providers to take similar action.

We do not provide these deletion rights for B2B personal information.

Exercising your right to know or delete

To exercise your rights to know or delete described above, please submit a request by emailing us at ask@sona.law.

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a request to know or delete related to your personal information.

You may only submit a request to know twice within a 12-month period. Your request to know or delete must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify You are the person about whom We collected personal information or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide You with personal information if We cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

We will only use personal information provided in the request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make it.

Response Timing and Format

We will confirm receipt of your request within ten (10) business days. If You do not receive confirmation within the 10-day timeframe, please contact us by sending an email to ask@sona.law.

We endeavor to substantively respond to a verifiable consumer request within thirty (30) days of its receipt. If We require more time (up to another 30 days), We will inform You of the reason and extension period in writing.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If We determine that the request warrants a fee, We will tell You why We made that decision and provide You with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against You for exercising any of your rights under this Privacy Policy.

Data Security

We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. Our website will be encrypted. We use LawPay, a third-party vendor to handle all payment transactions, and these payment transactions are subject to LawPay’s privacy policies and data security policies. Therefore, please refer to LawPay’s website for both their privacy and security policies.
