This section of the Privacy Policy (“CA Policy”) supplements and amends the information contained in our Privacy Policy with respect to California residents. This CA Policy applies solely to individuals, visitors, users, and others who are natural persons and residents of the State of California (“consumers” or “you”).


The CA Policy describes our policies and practices regarding the Personal Data we collect, use, and disclose about you, including Personal Data you submit or we obtain when you use the Services, including accessing this website. This CA Policy is adopted in part to comply with the CCPA.

Any terms defined within the CCPA have the same meaning when utilized within this CA Policy. The other provisions of the Policy continue to apply except as modified in this CA Policy. Note, however, that Personal Data as used in this CA Policy does not include:

  • Publicly available information from government records.
  • De-identified or aggregated consumer information.
  • Information excluded from the CCPA’s scope, such as personal information covered by certain sector-specific privacy laws, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the California Confidential Medical Information Act (CMIA), the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FRCA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) or California Financial Information Privacy Act (FIPA), and the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act of 1994.

Consumer Rights. Pursuant to the CCPA, and as detailed below, consumers have various rights with respect to their Personal Data:

  • Request to Delete. You have the right to request that we delete your Personal Data from our records and direct any service providers or contractors to delete your Personal Data from their records, subject to certain exceptions. Upon receipt of a confirmed verifiable consumer request (see below), and as required by the CCPA, we will delete and direct any service providers or contractors to delete your Personal Data from our records.

We are not required to comply with your request to delete your Personal Data if it is necessary for us (or our service providers or contractors) to maintain your Personal Data in order to

  • Complete the transaction for which the Personal Data was collected, provide a good or service requested by you, or reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform a contract between the us and you.
  • Help to ensure security and integrity to the extent the use of your Personal Data is reasonably necessary and proportionate for those purposes.
  • Debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise his or her right of free speech, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act pursuant to Chapter 3.6 (commencing with Section 1546) of Title 12 of Part 2 of the Penal Code.
  • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that confirms or adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the Company’s deletion of the information is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the ability to complete such research, if you have provided informed consent.
  • To enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with us and compatible with the context in which you provided the information.
  • Comply with a legal obligation.

Upon receipt of a confirmed verifiable consumer request (see below), and as required by the CCPA, we will provide a response to such requests.

If you are under the age of 18, and a registered user of any Service where this CA Policy is posted, California law permits you to request and obtain removal of content or information you have publicly posted. You may submit your request using the contact information in the Policy. Please be aware that such a request does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information you have posted and that there may be circumstances in which the law does not require or allow removal even if requested.

  • Request to Know. You have the right to request that we disclose the following to you as it relates to the 12-month period preceding its receipt of your verifiable consumer request:
  1. The categories of Personal Data we have collected about you.
  2. The categories of sources from which the Personal Data was collected.
  3. The business or commercial purpose for collecting Personal Data.
  4. The categories of Personal Data we disclosed for a business purpose.
  5. The categories of third parties with whom we disclose Personal Data.
  6. The specific pieces of Personal Data we collected about you.

Upon receipt of a verifiable consumer request (see below), and as required by the CCPA, we will provide a response to such requests.

  • Request to Correct Inaccurate Information. You have the right to request that we correct inaccurate Personal Data that we maintain. Upon receipt of a verifiable consumer request (see below), and as required by the CCPA, we will provide a response to such requests.
  • Direct the Company to Limit the Use of Sensitive Personal Information. You have the right to direct that we limit the use of sensitive personal information we collect about you to (i) uses that an average consumer would expect are reasonably necessary to provide the goods and or services you have requested, (ii) perform certain other activities permitted under the CCPA, and (iii) what is permitted by applicable law. Your right to direct the Company under this paragraph applies only to sensitive personal information that we collect or processed for the purpose of inferring characteristics about you.
  • Nondiscrimination. We will not discriminate against you in violation of the CCPA for exercising any of your CCPA rights. For example, we generally will not provide you a different level or quality of goods or services if you exercise your rights under the CCPA.

Submitting Consumer Rights Requests. To submit any of the Consumer Rights requests as outlined above, please contact us at 833-278-9963 or legal@quincetx.com. We reserve the right to only respond to verifiable consumer requests. A verifiable consumer request is one made by any individual who is:

  • the consumer who is the subject of the request,
  • a consumer on behalf of the consumer’s minor child, or
  • by a natural person or person registered with the Secretary of State authorized to act on behalf of a consumer.

If we request, you must provide us with sufficient information to verify your identity and/or authority to act on behalf of the consumer. In general, we may ask you to provide identifying information that we already maintain about you or we may use a third-party verification service. In either event, we will try to avoid asking you for sensitive Personal Data to verify your identity. We may not be able to respond to your request or provide you with Personal Data if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Personal Data relates to you. However, making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. Additionally, you will need to describe your request with sufficient detail to allow us to review, understand, assess, and respond. Personal Data collected from an individual to determine whether a request is a verifiable consumer request may not be used or disclosed for any other purpose except as required by law. We will endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) calendar days of receipt, but we may require an extension of up to forty-five (45) additional calendar days to respond and we will notify you of the need for the extension.

If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the receipt of your verifiable consumer request. With respect to Personal Data collected on and after January 1, 2022, and to the extent expressly permitted by applicable regulation, you may request that such disclosures cover a period beyond the 12 months referenced above, provided doing so would not require a disproportionate effort by the Company.

The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. To the extent permitted by the CCPA, we will respond to no more than two requests during any 12-month period.

You may authorize a natural person or a business registered with the California Secretary of State to act on your behalf with respect to the right under this CA Policy. When you submit a Request to Know or a Request to Delete, unless you have provided the authorized agent with a qualifying power of attorney, you must provide your authorized agent written permission (signed by you) to act on your behalf and verify the authorized agent’s identity with us. We reserve the right to deny requests from persons or businesses claiming to be authorized agents that do not submit sufficient proof of their authorization.

Do Not Track. “Do Not Track” is a privacy preference that you can set in your Internet search browser that sends a signal to a website that you do not want the website operator to track certain browsing information about you. However, because our website is not configured to detect Do Not Track signals from a user’s computer, we are unable to respond to Do Not Track requests.

Questions. If you have questions about this CA Policy, please contact us as described in the Policy.
