Your Rights Under the CPRA

The CPRA provides California residents with the rights detailed below.  For convenience, and as required by the

CPRA, we explain how you can exercise those rights, to the extent they are applicable.

1)   Right to Request and Access Information.  You have the right to request that we disclose certain information about our collection and use of your personal information during the past twelve (12) months.  Specifically, you may request that we disclose:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you;
  • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you;
  • The business and commercial purposes for collecting your personal information;
  • The categories of third parties with whom we shared your personal information;
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you; and
  • If we disclosed your personal information for a business or employment purpose, the categories of personal information received by each category of third party.

2)   Right to Correct. You have the right to request that we correct personal information we collected from you, subject to any exceptions or limitations under the CPRA.

3)   Right to Restrict Use of Sensitive Data. You have the right to request to limit any use of sensitive personal information, which includes precise geolocation, race, ethnicity, religion, genetic data, private communications, and certain sexual orientation, health, and biometric information. Prime Therapeutics does not share any of this sensitive data with third party vendors that are not using the information for legally required purposes, such as HR reporting services to meet government contract and reporting obligations. Prime does not collect or process your sensitive personal information for the purpose of inferring characteristics, and therefore, this right does not apply.

4)   Right Against Retaliation. If a California employee, contractor, or job applicant exercises the rights discussed above, consistent with the CPRA, Prime will not discriminate or retaliate against that individual.

5)   Right to Request Deletion.  You have the right to request that we delete personal information we collected from you, subject to any exceptions or limitations under the CPRA.

How to Make Requests

To exercise the rights described above, you, or someone authorized to act on your behalf, must submit a request to us by either emailing us at  with the email subject “California Privacy Request”  or contacting Human Resources directly at: 866.469.1257.

Responding to Requests

Your request must allow us to reasonably verify that you are the individual regarding whom we collected the personal information and must describe the request with enough detail that we can understand and respond to it. You may only submit requests for access twice within any twelve (12) month period.  As indicated above, please be aware that the CPRA provides certain limitations and exception to the foregoing rights, which may result in us denying or limiting our response to your request.

The CPRA requires us to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days but permits us to extend that period by an additional forty-five (45) days, provided we notify you of the reason for the extension in writing.  We will notify you that we have received your request within ten (10) business days of its receipt.  In general, we will not charge a fee to respond to a verifiable request.  However, a request may be refused, or a reasonable administrative fee may be charged if the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of repetitiveness.

Privacy and data protection laws, other than the CPRA, apply to much of the personal information that we collect, use, and disclose. When these other laws apply, personal information may be exempt from, or outside the scope of, a request to know, delete, or correct. For example, information subject to certain federal privacy laws, such as the

Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, is exempt from CPRA requests. As a result, we may decline all, or part of your request related to exempt personal information. This means that we may not provide some, or all, of this personal information when you make a request to know. Additionally, we may not delete or correct some, or all, of this Personal Data when you make a request to delete or correct.

Authorized Agents

If you are a California resident, you may authorize an agent to make a request on your behalf. A California resident’s authorized agent may make a request on behalf of the California resident by using the submission methods listed above under “How to Make Requests.”  As part of our verification process, we may request that you provide, as applicable:

    • The requestor’s name; at least one of the following email address, phone number, or home address and a copy or photo of the Driver’s License, State ID, or Matricula Card.

    • The legal entity requestor’s active registration with the California Secretary of State.
