Interest-Based Advertising

On Quidient Sites, Quidient may collect information about your online activities for use in providing you with advertising about products and services tailored to your individual interests. This section of the Privacy Policy provides details and explains how to exercise your choices.

You may see certain ads on other websites because Quidient participates in advertising networks. Ad networks allow Quidient to target messaging to users through demographic, interest-based and contextual means. These networks track your online activities over time by collecting information through automated means, including using cookies, web server logs, and web beacons. The networks use this information to show you advertisements that may be tailored to your individual interests. The information Quidient’s ad networks may collect includes data about your visits to websites that participate in the relevant advertising networks, such as the pages or advertisements you view and the actions you take on the websites. This data collection takes place both on Quidient Sites and on third-party websites that participate in the ad networks.

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 Quidient disclose certain information to you about Quidient’s collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once Quidient receives and confirms your verifiable consumer request, Quidient will disclose to you:

  • The categories of personal information Quidient collected about you.
  • Quidient’s business or commercial purpose for collecting that personal information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom Quidient shares that personal information.
  • The specific pieces of personal information Quidient collected about you (also called a data portability request).

Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that Quidient delete any of your personal information Quidient collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once Quidient receives and confirms your verifiable consumer request, Quidient will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

Quidient may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for Quidient or Quidient’s service providers to:

  1. Complete the transaction for which Quidient collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of Quidient’s ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform Quidient’s contract with you.
  2. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
  3. Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  4. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  5. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 seq.).
  6. Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
  7. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with Quidient.
  8. Comply with a legal obligation.
  9. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided the personal information.

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 email at [email protected].

Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows Quidient reasonably to verify you are the person about whom Quidient collected personal information or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows Quidient to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to the request.

Quidient cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if Quidient cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.  Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with Quidient. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

Quidient endeavors to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of receipt.  If Quidient requires more time (up to 90 days), Quidient will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.  If you have an account with Quidient, Quidient will deliver our written response to the registered email associated with the account.  If you do not have an account with Quidient, Quidient will deliver a written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures Quidient provides will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt.  The response Quidient provides will also explain the reasons Quidient cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, Quidient will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

Quidient does not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless the request is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.  If Quidient determine that the request warrants a fee, Quidient will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.


Quidient will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, Quidient will not:

  • Deny you use of Quidient’s Services.
  • Provide you a different level or quality of Services.

Changes to Our Privacy Notice

Quidient reserves the right to amend this Privacy Notice at Quidient’s discretion and at any time. The date this Privacy Notice was last updated is identified at the bottom of this page. You are responsible for periodically visiting the Quidient website and this Privacy Notice to check for any changes.
