The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides eligible California residents with specific rights with respect to our collection, retention, and use of Personal Information. This California Privacy Rights section supplements this Privacy Policy and applies solely to eligible residents of California as of January 1, 2020. Any terms not defined in this section have the same meaning as defined in the CCPA.

(a) Right to Know About Personal Information Collected, Disclosed, or Sold

You have the right to request that we provide certain information to you about our collection and use of your Personal Information over the past twelve (12) months. Specifically, you have the right to request disclosure of the categories of Personal Information and specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you over the last 12 months. Upon the submission of a verifiable consumer request we will disclose to you:

(i) the categories of Personal Information we collected about you;
(ii) the categories of sources from which Personal Information was collected;
(iii) the business or commercial purpose for collecting Personal Information;
(iv) the business or commercial purpose for disclosing or selling Personal Information; and
(v) the categories of third parties with whom we sold or disclosed Personal Information for a business purpose.

We will also provide the specific pieces of Personal Information we collected about you, subject to certain exceptions under applicable law, if you also request access to such information.
If you have visited our websites, we may have collected information about you and the Device you used to engage with our websites, such as an IP address, device type, operating system, time of visit, and other similar information, as discussed above. Such information will not be stored with other personal information that identifies you (such as your name, postal address, email address, etc.), and we therefore will not be able to reasonably associate this device-level information with you. Thus, we may not be able to provide you with specific information, or delete specific information that we have collected that cannot be reasonably associated with you. You may exercise your privacy rights for device-level data by engaging with the consent management platform displayed when you enter our websites.

(b) Right to Request Deletion of Personal Information

You also have the right to request that we delete Personal Information that we have collected and maintain about you, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will conduct a reasonable search of our records in order to locate any Personal Information we have collected about you that is eligible for deletion, and delete such Personal Information. To the extent we have shared any Personal Information collected about you with service providers that is eligible for deletion, we will direct those service providers to delete that Personal Information as well. For the sake of clarity, however, Hyundai Motor Company may not retain any Personal Information subject to a deletion exception as set forth under the CCPA.

(c) Right to Opt-Out of the Sale of Personal Information

If Hyundai Motor Company sells or discloses personal information about you to third parties, you may have the right to opt-out and request that Hyundai Motor Company not sell your Personal Information.

You may submit "Do not Sell my Personal Information” request via email at here.

(d) Right to Non-Discrimination for the Exercise of a Consumer’s Privacy Rights

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your privacy rights. Unless permitted by applicable law, we will not:
(i) Deny you goods or services.
(ii) Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
(iii) Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
(iv) Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

(e) Exercising Your California Privacy Rights

You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your CCPA rights. If you are a California resident and would like to exercise your rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act, you may submit a request via email at here.

Requests to exercise your rights under the CCPA require verification of your identity, and may be made only by you, your parent or guardian (if you are under 18 years of age), a person to whom you have given power of attorney pursuant to California Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465, or an authorized agent that is registered with the California Secretary of State. If a parent or guardian is submitting a request on behalf of a minor, the parent or guardian must submit proof that they are the parent or guardian of the subject consumer, and must verify the consumer’s identity.
Your verifiable consumer request must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or that you are an authorized representative of such person. We will not respond to your request or provide you with Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Personal Information relates to you. While we may ask for Personal Information to verify the requestor or consumer’s identity when making a request, we will only use that Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. Additionally, you may only make a verifiable consumer request for access twice within a 12-month period.

(f) Response Timing and Format

We will make our best effort to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. Within ten (10) days of receiving the request, we will confirm receipt and provide information about our verification and processing of the request. Hyundai Motor Company will maintain records of consumer requests made pursuant to the CCPA as well as our response to said requests for a period of at least twenty-four (24) months.
The response will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. Requests for the specific pieces of information that we have collected about you will be sent in a portable, readily useable format that you may transmit to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your 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 your request.

(g) Your Rights Under “Shine the Light”

You may exercise your rights under California’s Shine the Light law (Civil Code Section 1798.83) by utilizing the “Do not Sell my Personal Information” request via email at here.
