To Exercise Your Rights to Know, Access, Correct, Delete and/or “Shine the Light”
Please submit a request by filling out our Privacy Rights Request Form or by calling 1-800-298-5018 (Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM – 9:00 PM Eastern)
We may need to verify your identity before processing most requests, which may require us to obtain additional personal information from you. In order to verify your identity, we will generally require either the successful authentication of your account, or the matching of sufficient information you provide us to the information we maintain about you in our systems. Please provide your name, email address and mailing address in the original request, as well as an explanation of the rights you wish to exercise. We will only use the personal information provided in connection with a Privacy Rights Request to review and comply with the request. If you do not provide this information, we may not be able to verify or complete your request in all circumstances.
If you wish to submit a verifiable consumer request on behalf of another individual we will also need sufficient information to verify that the individual is the person about whom we collected personal information and that you are authorized to submit the request on their behalf. Please see the “Authorized Agents” section below for more information.
In certain circumstances, we may decline a request to exercise the rights described above, in accordance with applicable law.
To Exercise Your Right to Opt Out of Personal Information Sales or Sharing (Profiling or Targeted Advertising)
As is common practice among companies that operate online, we permit third party advertising networks, social media companies and other third-party businesses to collect personal information directly from your browser or device through cookies or similar online tracking technologies when you visit or interact with our websites, use our apps or otherwise engage with us. For example, they may collect Internet/Network information, such as a cookie or device ID, browsing history and website usage, geolocation data, commercial information, and inferences or consumer profiles generated from your browsing history and interactions with our service as well as other sites and services. These third parties use this information for the purposes of serving ads that are more relevant, for ad campaign measurement and analytics, and for fraud detection and reporting and may sell or share that information to other businesses for advertising and other purposes.
We have two separate sets of instructions for exercising your Right to Opt Out: for Tracking Technology personal information (such as cookie ID, IP address, online IDs or electronic activity information) (“tracking PI”) and for information that we have previously collected directly from you or otherwise about you (such as your email address) (“non-tracking PI”). In either case, you do not need to create an account with us to exercise your Right to Opt Out.
How to Opt Out of non-tracking PI: To exercise your Right to Opt Out of non-tracking PI, please submit a request by clicking the button below:
DO NOT SELL OR SHARE MY PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may ask you to provide additional personal information (including your name, email address and mailing address) so that we can properly identify you in our dataset to facilitate the opt-out request. If you choose not to provide this information, we may only be able to process your request to the extent we are able to identify you in our data systems.
Once you make an opt-out request, you may change your mind and opt back in to personal information sales at any time by contacting us USstate.email@example.com.
How to Opt Out of tracking PI: To exercise your Right to Opt Out of tracking PI, visit the bottom of a Unilever brand homepage that links to this Notice and click on “AdChoices – Do Not Sell or Share” at the bottom of the page. You will be taken to our cookie management tool with instructions for using the toggle to enable certain cookie preferences on your device. Some advertising opt-outs may not be effective unless your browser is set to accept cookies. Furthermore, the options you select relating to interest-based advertising are browser and device specific. If you use a different device, change browsers, or visit a different Unilever brand website or delete the opt-out cookies, you may need to perform the opt-out task again. Where available, you may choose to enable an online tool that automatically communicates your universal opt-out preferences, such as the Global Privacy Control (“GPC”). You may need to use a specific browser or an extension that supports these tools and universal signals. When detected, we will process such a signal as Right to Opt Out of tracking PI request.
Personal Information of Children Under Age 16
We do not “sell” or “share” for targeted or cross-context behavioral advertising personal information of consumers we know to be less than 16 years of age unless we receive affirmative authorization from the child who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a child less than 13 years of age. The parent or the child who has opted into personal information sales or sharing may opt out of future sales at any time. If a parent, guardian or child has provided affirmative authorization, they may opt out of future processing at any time by contacting us at USstate.firstname.lastname@example.org.
In certain circumstances, you are permitted to use an authorized agent to submit privacy rights requests on your behalf. We may verify the authorized agent’s authority to act on your behalf as follows:
For requests to opt-out of personal information “sales” or “sharing,” we may ask you to provide a signed permission demonstrating your authorized agent has been authorized by you to act on your behalf.
For all other requests, we may ask you to provide sufficient evidence to show that you have provided the authorized agent signed permission to act on your behalf, verified your own identity directly with us pursuant to the instructions set forth in this Notice, and directly confirmed with us that you provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request on your behalf.
We do not discriminate against you for requesting any of the rights noted above. We are permitted to deny or limit your request in accordance with applicable laws.
