CCPA Privacy Rights (Do Not Sell My Personal Information)
Under the CCPA, among other rights, California consumers have the right to:
Request that a business that collects a consumer's personal data disclose the categories and specific pieces of personal data that a business has collected about consumers.
Request that a business delete any personal data about the consumer that a business has collected.
Request that a business that sells a consumer's personal data, not sell the consumer's personal data.
If you make a request, I have one month to respond to you. If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact me. Please note, though, that data is only collected as part of the registration process. My removing the data equates to removing your account. Should you have your account removed, you will still be able to use all the features of the site with the exception of commenting and accessing resources.

I would like to make sure that you are fully aware of all of your data protection rights. Every user is entitled to the following:
The right to access – You have the right to request copies of your personal data. I might charge you a small fee for this service, payable in advance.
The right to rectification – You have the right to request that I correct any information you believe is inaccurate. You also have the right to request that I complete the information you believe to be incomplete.
The right to erasure – You have the right to request that I erase your personal data, which means deleting your account.

The right to data portability – You have the right to request that I transfer the data that I have collected to another organization, or directly to you, under certain conditions. I might charge a small fee for this service, payable in advance.

Another part of our priority is adding protection for children while using the internet. I encourage parents and guardians to observe, participate in, and/or monitor and guide their online activity.
The Accidental Coder does not knowingly collect any Personal Identifiable Information (PII) from children under the age of 13. If you think that your child provided this kind of information on this website, I strongly encourage you to e-mail me immediately and I will use my best effort to promptly remove such information.
