    Requests 

    If you are a Consumer, you can make requests to know what personal information we have collected you in the past 12 months or to delete your personal information via https://www.requesteasy.com/5f05-2084 or support@biglifejournal.com.

    We have not sold your Personal Information for the preceding 12 months from the date of the last review of this CCPA Privacy Notice.

    Please be aware that we do not accept or process requests through other means (e.g., via fax or social media). 

    We will review the information provided and may request additional information to ensure we are interacting with the correct Consumer. If you have a password-protected online account with us, you may be required to log-in to your account for identity verification. If you do not have an account with us, additional information to verify your identity may be required by law before we may take action upon such a request. This additional information may vary depending on the nature of your request and/or the nature of the information about which your request relates. In some cases, we may also be required by law to obtain a signed declaration under penalty of perjury from you that you are the subject of the request being made.  If we suspect fraudulent or malicious activity on or from your account, we will delay taking action on your request until we can appropriately verify your identity and the request as authentic.

    By law, we are not required to collect Personal Information that we otherwise would not collect in the ordinary course of our business, retain Personal Information for longer than we would otherwise retain such information in the ordinary course of our business, or reidentify or otherwise link information that is not maintained in a manner that would be considered Personal Information. If we have not requested specific additional information from you to verify your request, please do not send such information.

    We generally will aim to avoid requesting additional information from you for the purposes of verification. However, if we cannot reasonably verify your identity or more information is needed for security or fraud-prevention purposes, we may consider any of the following factors, alone or in combination, in requesting additional information:

    • The type, sensitivity, and value of the Personal Information collected and maintained about the Consumer, as applicable law requires a more stringent verification process for sensitive or valuable personal information;
    • The risk of harm to the Consumer posed by any unauthorized access or deletion;
    • The likelihood that fraudulent or malicious actors would seek the Personal Information;
    • Whether the Personal Information to be provided by the Consumer to verify their identity is sufficiently robust to protect against fraudulent requests or being spoofed or fabricated;
    • The manner in which we interact with the Consumer;
    • Available technology for verification; and
    • Other factors that may be reasonable in the circumstances, are consistent with industry practice, are recommended by California government officials, or which may be required by law or regulation following the effective date of this CCPA Privacy Notice.

    If your request is regarding household information, the same verification steps above may be required before we can provide you with aggregate household information. In addition, if you do not have a password-protected online account with us, for us to process a request for access to or deletion of specific pieces of information regarding your household, we may need all members of the household to make the request, and we may need to individually verify each household member and that each member making the request is currently a member of the house.

    We reserve the right to charge a reasonable fee or take other appropriate action in response to requests from a Consumer or household that are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of their repetitive character.

    You may designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf pursuant to applicable law. We accept documentation of your designation in the form of a valid power of attorney and/or a written authorization signed by you and the authorized agent. You must submit evidence of your designation of an authorized agent in writing to: 292 Newbury Str., St #284, Boston, MA 02115-2832, USA. We may require verification of your authorized agent in addition to the information for verification above for Consumers and households.      

    Children

    Our services are not directed to children, and we do not knowingly collect or sell Personal Information from children under the age of 16. If you learn that a child has provided us with Personal Information, then you may contact us through the Contact Us section below. 

    Notice of Financial Incentive

    We offer financial incentives to Consumers based upon the collection, retention or sale of a Consumer’s Personal Information calculated based on a good-faith estimate of the value of the Consumer’s data, which forms the basis for offering such financial incentives. The financial incentive offered is free resources. .
