I. Access: You have the right to request, twice in a 12-month period, that we disclose to you the following information we have collected, used, and disclosed about you during the 12 months preceding your request:

  • The categories of Personal Information we collected about you;
  • The categories of sources from which we collected such Personal Information;
  • The business or commercial purpose(s) for collecting such Personal Information about you;
  • The categories of third parties with whom we shared such Personal Information; and
  • The specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you.

II. Deletion: You have the right to request that we delete certain Personal Information we collected from you.

How to Submit a Request. To make an access or deletion request (described above), please contact us by any of the following means:

  • Toll-free telephone number: 1-833-929-2977
  • E-mail address: privacy-ccpa@faq.konami.com

Verifying Requests. To help protect your privacy and maintain security, we will take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to your Personal Information or complying with your deletion request.

We consider an access or deletion request made through your password-protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to Personal Information associated with that specific account.

In addition, if you do not have, or cannot access, a password-protected account with us, we will verify an access or deletion request by using the following procedures:

(1) If the relevant product or service has an inquiry function, we will consider the request submitted through the inquiry function to be sufficiently verified. However, if we suspect that the request has been made by someone other than the actual user of the product or service, we will verify your identity by asking you to provide information that only the person who used the product or service may know.

(2) If the relevant product or service has no inquiry function, we will verify your identity by sending a customer number to you through a notification function within the relevant product or service, and requesting that you reply to us with that number. However, if the product or service has no notification function or you cannot use it, we will verify your identity by asking you to provide information that only the person who used the product or service may know.

If you use an authorized agent to make an access or deletion request on your behalf, we may require you to (1) provide the authorized agent signed permission to do so, (2) verify your own identity directly with us (as described above), and (3) directly confirm with us that you provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request.

Additional Information. If you choose to exercise any of your rights under the CCPA, you have the right to not receive discriminatory treatment by us. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may charge a reasonable fee to comply with your request.
