Online Privacy Protection Policy for California Residents

“Shine the Light” Law
California’s “Shine the Light” law (Cal. Civ. Code Sections 1798.80, et seq.) provides California residents with the right to receive certain disclosures when personal information that has been collected online is shared with third parties for direct-marketing purposes.

If you are a California resident and you provided personal information directly to F. Gavina & Sons, Inc. or via the F. Gavina & Sons, Inc. website in the past, and/or if you do so in the future, you are entitled to submit a request in writing to the Company for a description of the information we may have provided to third parties. To submit your written request, please send it to us using our contact form and let us know you are writing in regards to the “California Privacy Request.”

Within 30 days after receipt of your request, we will send you a list of the categories of personal information disclosed to third parties during the immediately preceding calendar year, along with the names and addresses of the third parties who actually received such information, if any.

We reserve our right not to respond to requests sent more than once in a calendar year.
Please note that the California “Shine the Light” law does not cover all categories of information that may be collected and disclosed or shared, and our policy relates only to information covered by the law.
