We disclose your PII for a business purpose to the following categories of third parties:

While we do not sell PII in exchange for any monetary or other valuable consideration, we do share PII for other benefits that could be deemed a “sale,” as defined by the CCPA (Cal. Civ. Code 1798.140(t)(1)). This includes sharing PII with advertising networks, website analytics companies, and event sponsors.

  1. Your Rights and Choices

The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their PII. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

Access to Specific Information Right

  • The categories of PII we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources for PII we collected about you.
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting that PII.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that PII.
  • The specific pieces of PII we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
  • If we sold or disclosed your PII for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing: (a) sales, identifying PII categories that each category of recipient purchased; and (b) disclosures for a business purpose, identifying PII categories that each category of recipient obtained.

Deletion Request Right

You have the right to request that we delete any of your PII we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your PII from our records, unless an exception applies.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:

  1. Complete the transaction for which we collected PII, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
  2. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
  3. Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  4. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  5. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 seq.).
  6. Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
  7. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  8. Comply with a legal obligation.
  9. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

Exercising Your Rights

To exercise your rights under the CCPA, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either: (a) sending an e-mail to us at [email protected]; or (b) submitting a request through  web portal form; or (c) sending a letter to us at MeaTech 3D Ltd.,18 Einstein St., PO Box 4061, Ness Ziona 7414001or (d) calling us at +972-77-541-2206.

Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your PII. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected PII 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 PII if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the PII relates to you.  Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use PII provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

  1. Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to the registered email associated with the account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your PII that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

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.

  1. PII Sales Opt Out And Opt In Rights

You have the right to direct us to not sell your PII at any time (the “right to opt-out”). We do not sell PII of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “right to opt-in”) from either the consumer who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer who is between 13 and 16 years of age. Consumers who opt-in to PII sales may opt-out of future sales at any time. To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us by visiting the following our webpage or sending us a message: https://meatech3d.com/contacts/.

Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize PII sales. However, you may change your mind and opt back in to PII sales at any time by visiting our website and sending us a message. We will only use PII provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request.

  1. Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.

California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our websites or Services that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of PII to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
