CCPA FAQs

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) gives California consumers the right to access and have control over some of the personal information businesses collect about them.

For more information on the CCPA: California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018

If you’re under 18 years old, you still have all the rights mentioned on this site. However, a parent or guardian must make your data privacy request in writing and send it to us by mail.

If you are a parent or guardian of a minor and would like to receive a disclosure or opt out of the sale of personal information on behalf of your child, here’s what you’ll need to provide:

  1. A written request stating the CCPA request you would like to make.
  2. One piece of documentation that provides ‘sufficient proof of authority’ that you have authority to act on behalf of the minor or dependent such as:
    • An order issued by a court of law
    • A document issued by a Federal, State, or local government agency in the United States showing proof of parentage, including a birth certificate
    • With respect to a protected consumer who has been placed in a foster care setting, a written communication from a county welfare department or its agent or designee, or a county probation department or its agent or designee, certifying that the protected consumer is in a foster care setting under its jurisdiction
  3. Information or documentation that provides ‘sufficient proof of identification’ to verify your identity and the identity of the minor/dependent, such as:
    • A social security number or a copy of a social security card issued by the Social Security Administration
    • A certified or official copy of a birth certificate issued by the entity authorized to issue the birth certificate
    • A copy of a driver’s license, an identification card issued by the motor vehicle administration, or any other government issued identification

Please send your letter and documentation to the following address:

Aristotle Privacy officer
205 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE
Washington, DC 20003

Currently, you may submit your request online or by mail at:

Aristotle Privacy Officer,
205 Pennsylvania Avenue,
SE, Washington, DC 20003

or by contacting us at 888-217-9600. For mail requests, please allow sufficient time for us to verify your identity and locate your information.

This option is not available for non-California residents at this time. Deletion of publicly available information such as voter files is also not available at this time.

Opt-out requests take up to 45 days to process. Data privacy disclosure and deletion requests typically take up to 45 days, but may take as long as 90 days. If we expect the request to take longer than 45 days, we’ll try to let you know.

You can receive your results by mail at this time. Results won’t be emailed.

We’ll notify you to confirm your request was submitted. Results will be mailed to you at the address you supply so long as that address is verified from your request. If we cannot verify your request you will be notified either by mail or email that the request does not match our information on file. We will not be able to provide more information about why your information did not match as that would disclose information about you or another individual to a potentially unauthorized party.

A data privacy disclosure includes the specific pieces of personal information Aristotle has received from you and other sources which are neither part of the public record or publicly available information.

No. Only information covered by the CCPA will be disclosed as part of the request. The CCPA does not cover publicly available and other information because is protected by other privacy laws, which Aristotle abides by, or it is exempted in the CCPA or other legislation.

If you live in California and want to opt out of having Aristotle sell the information that’s found in your data privacy disclosure, you can complete an opt-out request online. Aristotle will process this request in keeping with the CCPA regulations. Please note that the CCPA regulations may specifically exempt some or all parts of your data from the opt-out process depending on the use of such data. An example of this is your official Voter file which is used for free speech and other political activities.

We don’t support disputes of data privacy disclosure information.

If the inaccurate information you see on your data privacy disclosure is from on your Voter, driver or other file as supplied by the state or municipality, you should approach the issuing agency to correct that information.

No. The disclosure will not contain sensitive information as defined by Aristotle. This includes at a minimum any Social Security numbers.

You can make up to two data privacy disclosure requests in a 12-month period.

There is no option to opt out of Aristotle selling specific pieces of information. If you choose to opt out, this will include all non-publicly available information found on your data privacy disclosure that is covered by the CCPA.

CCPA-related requests provide you the benefit of having more control of the collection and use of your personal information. However, by opting out of the sale of your personal information, you may be limiting your involvement in political speech, debate and communications.
