California Consumer Rights and Choices
California Privacy Laws provide consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your rights and explains how to exercise those rights. You may submit requests to us as described below and we honor those rights where they apply
Right to Know: You have the right to request that Sunwest Bank disclose personal information that it has collected, sold, or shared about you. This includes a request for any or all of the following:
- The categories of personal information we have collected about you.
- The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected.
- The categories of personal information that we have sold or disclosed for a business purpose about you.
- The categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold or disclosed for a business purpose.
- The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you.
- The business or commercial purpose for collecting, selling, or sharing personal information.
Right to Delete: You have the right to request that Sunwest Bank delete any personal information that we have collected, sold, or shared about you.
Right to Limit: In certain circumstances, you have the right to limit the use and disclosure of sensitive personal information. Our use of your sensitive personal information is solely for business purposes and not for those purposes for which a consumer may exercise a right to limit the use or disclosure under the CPRA. Therefore, we include this disclosure of information for information purposes only.
A business that collects personal information about a consumer must disclose to the consumer the information specified above upon receipt of a verifiable consumer request from the consumer. Additionally, the business must associate the information provided by the consumer in the verifiable consumer request to any personal information previously collected by the business about the consumer and identify by category or categories the personal information collected about the consumer in the preceding 12 months by reference to categories enumerated in California Civil Code Section 1798.130(c) that most closely describes the personal information collected.
Right to Opt-Out of Sale/Sharing: You have the right to direct a business that sells or shares personal information about you to third parties to stop doing so. Sunwest Bank does not sell or share any personal information as defined by the CPRA. Therefore, we include this disclosure of information for informational purposes only.
Right to Correct: You have the right to request that we correct inaccurate personal information that we maintain about you. Our goal is to keep your personal information accurate, and complete.
These rights do not apply to personal information collected or disclosed under certain exemptions under the CPRA. This includes, but is not limited to, personal information collected, processed, sold, or disclosed subject to the GLBA. Therefore, rights such as the Right to Know and Right to Delete do not apply to personal information collected, processed, sold, or disclosed pursuant to these exemptions.
