Specifically, this Notice applies to our processing activity when we are acting as a “business” under the CCPA—meaning that we control the purposes and means of processing your personal information. This section explains Shipt’s collection, processing, and disclosure of personal information relating to California consumers or households.
As defined by the CCPA, “personal information” includes any information that identifies, relates to, describes, references, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.

Made available by a person to whom the consumer has disclosed the information if the consumer has not restricted the information to a specific audience.
That is lawfully obtained, truthful information that is a matter of public concern.
That is deidentified or aggregate consumer information.
Excluded from the CCPA’s scope, personal information is covered by certain sector-specific privacy laws such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
In the past 12 months, Shipt has collected the following categories of personal information from consumers and disclosed such information to the following categories of third parties for the business purposes further described below.

We may disclose your personal information in response to a court order, subpoena, search warrant, law or regulation.
Shipt collects these categories of personal information from the following sources:
Direct collection: We collect information directly from you when you choose to provide it to us by filling out forms on our website, engaging in transactions with us, signing up to receive promotional or information communications from us, communicating with us about our services, or otherwise directly providing the information to us as described above.
Indirect and technology-based collection: We also collect certain information from you indirectly when you visit, use, or navigate our Services.

The type and scope of personal data obtained from social media platforms depends on the type of APIs and permissions set out by the respective platforms and the administrative permissions granted by customers, where applicable.
Third-party collection: From time-to-time, we may obtain marketing or lead lists from third party vendors.

Sensitive Personal Information
Shipt does not collect or process “sensitive personal information” (as defined by the CCPA) for the purposes of inferring characteristics about California consumers.

Do Not Share Requests: Contact Shipt at 877-557-1484 or click this link.
The CCPA requires us to comply with a consumer request to opt out of sales or sharing as soon as feasibly possible, but no later than fifteen (15) business days from the date the request is received. No verification is required; however, we may deny a request to opt-out of sales or sharing if we have a good-faith, reasonable, and documented belief that the request is fraudulent. In the event we deny a request for this reason, we will inform the consumer that we are not complying with the request and provide an explanation of why we believe the request is fraudulent.
Requests may be made using an authorized agent, if the consumer provides the agent with written permission signed by the consumer to act on the consumer’s behalf. We may deny a request if the applicable agent does not submit proof that it has been authorized by the consumer to act on the consumer’s behalf.
Once a consumer makes an opt out request, we will honor such request for at least twelve (12) months before asking the consumer to reauthorize personal information sales or sharing.
Additionally, if a consumer initiates a transaction or attempts to use a product or service that requires the sale or sharing of the consumer’s personal information, we may inform the consumer that the transaction, product or service requires the sale or sharing of the consumer’s personal information and provide the consumer instructions on how to opt in to sales or sharing.
Shipt uses an advertising service, Criteo, for internet based retargeting advertising. Criteo works through the use of a web pixel on Shipt’s website that will collect electronic information about you. Shipt does not see this information, which is transmitted directly to Criteo. Criteo considers the use of their product to be a potential data sale under California law. Accordingly, if you wish to opt out of the use of Criteo services with respect to your data, you may do so via Criteo’s opt out mechanism.
Process for an Access/Data Portability, Deletion or Correction Request
You will be required to provide at least 4 pieces of information which may include your name, mailing address, email address and phone number. Shipt will use this information to search our systems and determine if we have information about you. If we are able to locate information about you, we will fulfill your request. If we are not able to match the 4 pieces of information you submit, we may only be able to provide you with a report that includes the categories of Personal Information we collect, use, disclose or sell.
A link to your access report will be sent to you by email, which will be sent to the email address you provided at the time you submitted your request.
If you are an authorized agent, you will be required to submit your name, mailing address, email address and phone number as well as the name, mailing address, email address and phone number of the individual you are making a request on behalf of. Shipt will use the individual’s information to search our systems and determine if we have information about the individual. If we are able to locate the information about the individual, we will fulfill the request. As an authorized agent you will receive an email confirming that we received the request along with a second email asking you to fill out a certification form confirming your information and certifying that you have the right to make this request on behalf of the individual. Once the report is ready, it will be sent to the email address you have given us.
The CCPA requires us to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt; however, we may extend that period by an additional 45 days. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response via e-mail. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the twelve (12)-month period preceding the receipt of the verifiable consumer request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access twice within a twelve (12)-month period, provided that you may request disclosure beyond the 12-month period as permitted by the CCPA. We will not charge a fee to process or respond to a verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing the request.
Our Commitment Not to Discriminate
Consistent with the CCPA, we will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights 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 with a different level or quality of goods or services.
Suggesting that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
