Your Rights and Choices

The CCPA provides California Consumers 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 Munger Tolles disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months:

  • 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 sold your Personal Information, the categories of Personal Information that each category of recipient purchased; and
  • If we disclosed your Personal Information for a business purpose, the categories of Personal Information that each category of recipient obtained.

To make such a request, you may either call (866) 967-1414 or submit a request here: https://www.mto.com/about-us/data-subject-request. Please note that your request is subject to verification, and that we are not obligated to provide personal information in response to such a request if a consumer makes more than two requests in a 12-month period.

Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that Munger Tolles delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. To make such a request, you may either call (866) 967-1414 or submit a request here: https://www.mto.com/about-us/data-subject-request. Please note that your request is subject to verification.

We also reserve the right to deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

  • Complete the transaction for which the Personal Information was collected;
  • Provide a service requested by you;
  • Continue the ongoing business relationship with you within the reasonably anticipated context of that relationship;
  • Perform a contract between you and Munger Tolles;
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for that activity;
  • Debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality;
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another California resident to exercise his or her right of free speech, or exercise another right provided for by law;
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act;
  • 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;
  • To enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with the expectations of you based on your relationship with us;
  • Comply with legal obligations;
  • Otherwise to be used internally in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the Personal Information; or
  • Provide employment and related benefits.

Right To Opt Out Or Opt In

If you are a California consumer, you have the right to opt out of having your personal information sold to third parties. If you are a California consumer under the age of 16 but at least 13, you have the right to only have your information sold if you opt in and affirmatively authorize the sale of your personal information; if a California-resident child is less than 13, then the child’s parent or guardian must opt in and affirmatively authorize the sale of personal information. Our current practice is to not sell your Personal Information for monetary or other valuable consideration and we have not done so in the preceding 12 months. As described above in this notice, we may share your personal information with other entities, such as when we pay a service provider to assist us with processing your Personal Information and receive that service in return.

Right Of Non-Discrimination

You have a right to exercise your rights under the CCPA without being subject to discrimination, including, but not limited to, by:

  • Denying you goods or services.
  • Charging you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
  • Providing you a different level or quality of goods or services.
  • Suggesting that you will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

This right does not prohibit a business from charging a consumer a different price or rate, or from providing a different level or quality of goods or services, if that difference is reasonably related to the value provided to the business by the consumer’s data. In certain instances, we may need your information. For example, when you apply for a position with us, we may need the information provided on your resume to evaluate your application for employment. If you request that we delete this information, we may not be able to consider your application.
