We will not collect additional categories of personal information or use the personal information we collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing you notice. In such event, we will notify you by updating this Notice.
Disclosures of Personal Information for a Business Purpose
WE DO NOT AND WILL NOT SELL YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. We may disclose your personal information to a third party for a business purpose. When we disclose personal information for a business purpose, we enter into a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract.
In the preceding twelve (12) months, Beacon Pointe may have disclosed the categories of personal information listed above for business purposes to the following categories of parties (excluding disclosures we may be prohibited from reporting under applicable law):
- Our affiliated and un-affiliated service providers to help conduct our business.
- Third parties to whom you direct or authorize us to disclose your personal information, independent of or in connection with products or services we provide to you.
Your Rights and Choices
The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion below), we will disclose to you:
- The categories of personal information we collected about you.
- The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
- Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
- The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
- The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
- If we disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, identification of the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.
Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion below), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
- Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
- Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
- Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
- Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 seq.).
- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
- Calling us at 866-272-1272.
- Emailing us at email@example.com.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. However, for Beacon Pointe clients, we do consider requests made through your password protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account.
The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized agent, which may include: name, phone number, email and/or mailing address. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. Please refer to the list of available data rights above.
Only you, or an authorized agent, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. An authorized agent is a person or business entity registered with the California Secretary of State that a consumer has legally authorized to act on their behalf. If you are an authorized agent and submit a data-rights request on behalf of a consumer, we may require that the consumer provide you with written authorization on their behalf and verify their own identity directly with us.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period.
Response Timing and Format
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not: deny you goods or services, charge you different prices or rates for goods or services (including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties), provide you a different level or quality of goods or services, or suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

When we make changes to this privacy notice, we will post the updated notice on the Website and update the notice’s effective date. Your continued use of our Website following the posting of changes constitutes your acceptance of such changes.
