Your Rights and Choices

The CCPA provides California residents with specific rights regarding their Personal Information. This section describes your rights and explains how to exercise your rights.

Access to Personal 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 twelve (12) months. Therefore, once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you the following:

  • The categories of Personal Information we collected about you;

  • Our business purpose for collecting your Personal Information;
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share your Personal Information, if any; and

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, 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 Personal Information is necessary to comply with any legal obligation imposed (or reasonably foreseeable to be imposed) on us.

Exercising Access to Personal Information, Data Portability, and Deletion Request Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, or deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by:

  • Telephone at: 800-243-1189
  • Email at:
  • Mail at Attn: TNT California Privacy Policy, American Promotional Events, Inc., 4511 Helton Drive, Florence, Alabama 35630.

Please be advised that 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 only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a twelve (12) month period.

Your verifiable consumer request must: (1) provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person whom we collected Personal Information (or that you are an authorized representative thereof); and (2) describe your request in sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond it.

Response Time

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more than forty-five (45) days, up to ninety (90) days, we will inform you of the reason why and of the extension in writing. We will either deliver our written response to you electronically (such as through e-mail) on through the mail (such as through the United States Postal Service). Any disclosures we provide to you will only cover the twelve (12) month period preceding our receipt of the verifiable consumer request. If we cannot comply with a verifiable consumer request, our response will inform you of the reason why, to the extent that doing so does not waive any applicable privilege afforded to us.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request, unless it is excessive, repetitive, or unfounded. If we determine that your verifiable consumer request warrants a fee, we will inform you of the reason why and provide you with a cost estimate before proceeding.

For example, if you exercise any of your rights under the CCPA, we will not: (i) deny you goods or services; (ii) charge you different prices or rates for goods or services; (iii) provide you with a different quality or level of goods or services.
