This California Privacy Notice applies solely to California residents and their personal information as covered under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). The CCPA provides California residents with rights to receive certain disclosures regarding the collection, use, and sharing of “Personal Information,” as well as rights to know/access, delete, and limit sharing of Personal Information. The CCPA defines “Personal Information” as “information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.”
Artemis DNA’s core business is generally not subject to the CCPA. This California Privacy Notice does not apply to information we collect that is “medical information” governed by the California Confidentiality of Medical Information Act or “protected health information” governed by the privacy, security, and breach notification rules of HIPAA because this information is not within scope of the CCPA. For example, this California Privacy Notice does not apply the information we collect from you in connection with laboratory testing or your test results. See our Notice of Privacy Practices for information on our use and disclosure of medical information and other protected health information.
Certain other information we collect may also be exempt from the CCPA because it is considered public information (i.e., it is made available by a government entity) or covered by another specific federal privacy law.
To the extent that we collect Personal Information that is subject to the CCPA, that information, our practices, and your rights are described below.

Your Rights under the CCPA
Right to Know/Access Information
You have the right to request access to Personal Information collected about you and information regarding the source of that information, the purposes for which we collect it, and the third parties and Service Providers with whom we share it. You may submit such a request as described below. To protect our customers’ Personal Information, we are required to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
Right to Request Deletion of Information
You have the right to request in certain circumstances that we delete Personal Information that we have collected directly from you, subject to certain exceptions. You may submit such a request as described below. To protect our customers’ Personal Information, we are required to verify your identity before we can act on your request. We may have a reason under applicable law, rule, order, or regulation why we do not have to comply with your request, or why we may comply with it in a more limited way than you anticipated. If we do, we will explain that to you in our response.
How to Submit a Request
In order to process your request to know/access or delete Personal Information we collect, disclose, or sell, we must verify your request. We do this by asking you to provide personal identifiers we can match against information we may have collected from you previously.
You may authorize another individual or a business registered with the California Secretary of State, called an authorized agent, to make requests on your behalf. We require that you and the individual complete notarized affidavits in order to verify the identity of the authorized agent and confirm that you have authorized them to act on your behalf.
You may only make a request twice within a twelve (12) month period. Each request must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or that you have duly authorized the person making the request on your behalf.
We do not offer any rewards programs or incentives for the collection or sharing of data at this time. We will not discriminate against any individual for exercise of any CCPA rights.
