Notice of Right to Opt Out of Sale/Sharing


You may at any time direct CRC to stop selling or sharing your personal information, which is called the “Right to Opt Out”. Once you make an opt out request, CRC will comply within 15 business days, and will wait at least 12 months before asking you to reauthorize sales or sharing. You may exercise your right to opt out of sale/sharing by calling 866-858-5158, by clicking the Do Not Sell or Share my Personal Informaton link from bottom of website or on the CRC home page, or by enabling a preference signal, described further in the section titled “Opt Out Preference Signals”.  


Notice of Right to Limit Use of Sensitive Personal Information

CCPA provides you with a “right to limit” companies from using your sensitive personal information to infer characteristics about you for certain purposes – for example, for marketing.  Since CRC does not engage in any of those limitable activities, we do not provide a related opt out.

Retention of Personal Information


CRC has established product and business-level criteria for retention and disposal according to business requirements, laws, regulations, and applicable industry standards.


Right to Know


Consumers under the CCPA may exercise their “Right to Know” to request that we disclose certain information we may have collected about them over the last 12 months, the categories of sources from which that information was collected, the business or commercial purpose(s) for which the information was collected, and the categories of third parties with whom we share personal information.


Right to Correct

You have the right to request correction of inaccurate information maintained by CRC.  In many instances, such updates are best made by emailing by calling 866-858-5158, and some corrections may require specific documentation to be provided as required by law. If you provide us documentation, it will only be used or maintained for the purpose of correcting the information and complying with our recordkeeping requirements under the CCPA. CRC also provides privacy request links as described below.

Right to Delete

You have the right to request deletion of personal information that CRC has collected, subject to certain exceptions. For example, we may deny your request if retaining the information is necessary for us to complete a transaction you requested or comply with our legal obligations.

Consumers are welcome to submit requests for more information by clicking here or by calling 866-858-5158.


All requests must be verified prior to receiving a response. Requesters will be asked to supply certain basic personal information to enable us to validate that the requestor is the consumer who is subject of the request. Information submitted for verification purposes will only be used to verify the requestor’s identity and/or authority to make a request on another’s behalf.  Requests made on another person’s behalf can only be accepted upon receipt of documentation that the requestor is an authorized agent, parent, or legal guardian of the consumer whose information is being requested. 


Upon submission of a request, CA consumers will receive an initial response confirming receipt within 10 days. A full response will be provided to CA consumers within 45 days (unless an extension of up to 45 additional days is requested, upon which the consumer will receive notice and an explanation for the extension).   Please note CRC is also a service provider; for example, providing underwriting services or property insurance If you are an employee, customer, representative, or otherwise associated with one of these clients, we encourage you to reach out to the business directly to exercise your rights specific to this information.

Opt Out Preference Signals


Your internet browser may give you control over certain of your privacy preferences via a Global Privacy Control (GPC) signal. This is a setting in your browser that notifies the websites you visit of your preferences to opt out of selling or sharing your personal information under California law. If you have opted out via the GPC signal, CRC sites will recognize this signal and process your preference automatically as it pertains to tags, cookies and pixels that collect personal information when you visit Please note, you will need to enable the signal on each browser that you use, as the signal is processed at the browser-level and is not applied if you visit from a different browser or device that does not have the GPC signal enabled. CRC does not sell/share any non-browser-based data.



The submission of a "Right to Know", "Right to Correct", or "Right to Delete" request or exercising any of the above rights will have no impact on the service and/or pricing you receive from us. It will not result in any denial of goods or services, or different prices, rates or quality of goods or services, nor will it result in retaliation against an employee, applicant, or independent contractor. 


Consumers Under 16 years of Age


CRC products and services are not intended for consumers under the age of 16, and we do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 16 without consent. CRC does not knowingly share the personal information of minors under the age of 16 for cross-contextual advertising.



This notice may be revised from time to time, so please review this page periodically. Any changes will become effective when we post the revised notice on the site.
