CCPA Rights to Know and Delete Information Are Not Available for Certain Personal Information


We may collect personal information about you in connection with you acting as a job applicant to or as an employee, director, officer, or contractor of Westcoast Firearms.  CCPA data rights are not available for personal information we collect about you in these contexts, including your emergency contact information and personal information that is necessary for us to retain to administer benefits for another person relating to you acting as a job applicant to or an employee, director, officer, or contractor of Westcoast Firearms.  Any personal information we collect and use under these circumstances will only be used within the context of your role or former role acting in such capacity.


There are various other exceptions to the data rights afforded under the CCPA.  As stated in the Data Retention section of our Privacy Policy, because Westcoast Firearms’ business is subject to federal laws and regulations that include various record-keeping requirements, our data retention practices are designed to comply with such laws.  To the extent a request is submitted as provided below and it is determined that an exception applies, Westcoast Firearms will respond to the request providing an explanation of the applicable exception within the processing time-frame.

Do Not Sell My Personal Information


In addition to your ‘right to know’ and ‘right to delete’ personal information collected about you, California resident consumers have the right to opt-out of the “sale” of their personal information, as such term is defined in the CCPA.  To facilitate exercise of this right, in addition to the opt-out methods generally available under the Privacy Policy, California resident consumers may direct Westcoast Firearms to refrain from sharing that personal information with certain third parties to the extent such disclosure is deemed a “sale” of information by using this link: Do Not Sell My Personal Information.

Authorized Agents


A California resident consumer can designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA on the consumer’s behalf.  An authorized agent is an individual or a business entity registered with the California Secretary of State that a consumer has authorized to act on his or her behalf.  If an authorized agent submits a request under the CCPA on behalf of a California resident consumer, we may require (a) documentation verifying authorization by the consumer to make the request, and (b) that the consumer on whose behalf the request is being made verify his or her identity directly with Westcoast Firearms.
