Your Rights Under the CCPA

1. Right to Know About Personal Information Collected, Disclosed, or Sold Under the CCPA, you have a right to request that we disclose the categories of personal information we have collected, used, disclosed, and sold. We call this as a “categories” request. You also have the right to request that we disclose the specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you, which we call a “specific pieces” request. These are referred to collectively as “Right to Know” requests under the CCPA.

2. Right to Request Deletion of Personal Information You also have a right to delete the personal information we’ve collected about you. The “Right to Delete” is subject to several legal exceptions, such as when we are required by another state or federal law to retain your information.

3. Right to Opt-Out of the Sale of Information The CCPA provides consumers with the right to opt-out of the sale of their personal information. The CCPA defines a "sale" as disclosing or making available to a third-party personal information in exchange for monetary or other valuable consideration. While we do not sell personal information for monetary value, we may disclose personal information to third parties, such as vehicle manufacturers, in such a way that may be considered a “sale” of personal information under the CCPA. To direct us to stop the sale of your personal information, click here to submit a request using our interactive web form. We do not sell personal information of minors who we know are under 16 years of age.

4. Right to Non-Discrimination for the Exercise of Your CCPA Rights You have a right not to receive discriminatory treatment for the exercise of the privacy rights conferred by the CCPA.


Verification of Right to Know and Deletion Requests

To protect against fraud, identity theft, and the unauthorized disclosure or deletion of personal information, we require that consumers submitting requests under the CCPA first verify their identity. This may include a combination of SMS (text message) verification, email verification, and one or more questions regarding the consumer’s particular interaction or transaction with our dealership. If the consumer fails to verify their request via these methods, or the information provided by the consumer otherwise does not match our existing records, we will deny the request.


How to Submit a CCPA Request


To submit a Right to Know, Delete, Opt-Out, or Opt-In request, click here or call our toll free number at (559) 899-3711.

Authorized Agents


A consumer may designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA on the consumer’s behalf. If a consumer wishes to authorize another person to act as an authorized agent on the consumer’s behalf, the consumer must provide the authorized agent permission to do so. An authorized agent can submit a CCPA request on behalf of a California resident by clicking here.

To help prevent fraudulent requests, we reserve the right to deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof that he or she has been authorized by the consumer to act on the consumer’s behalf. As proof that the agent has been duly authorized by the consumer to submit a CCPA request, the agent will be required to upload either (1) power of attorney signed by consumer, or (2) other signed permission from the consumer. Pursuant to California Probate Code Sections 4300 to4310, if an agent provides power of attorney signed by the consumer (“principal”) that purports to give the agent authorization to submit the request on the principal’s behalf, we may require that the agent provide information reasonably necessary or appropriate to identify the agent and principal and to facilitate the request. This includes, but is not limited to, identification of the agent and principal and the current and permanent residence addresses of the principal. If the agent provides some other signed permission from the consumer, we may require that the consumer (1) verify their identity directly with us through a combination of SMS (text message) verification, email verification, and one or more questions regarding the consumer’s particular interaction or transaction with our dealership and (2) confirm that he or she provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request.
