Third Parties with Whom Information May be Shared
APR may work with third parties that provide services to us to help us develop, operate, deliver, maintain, improve, and enhance our services.  APR may share your information to comply with the law, respond to valid government inquiries, comply with legal processes, and to permit APR to pursue available remedies or limit damages.

The purpose for Collecting Personal Information
We may disclose the personal information we collect from you for the following reasons:

  • To fulfill or meet the reasons you provided the information.
  • To provide support, personalize, and develop our website, products, and services.
  • To create, maintain, customize, and secure your account with us.
  • To process your requests, purchases, transactions, and payments and prevent transactional fraud.
  • To monitor, analyze, and research, such as trends, usage, and advertising-related services.
  • To provide you with support and to respond to your inquiries, including investigating and addressing your concerns, and monitoring and improving our responses.

Access to Specific Information
You have the right to request that APR disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months.  Once we receive and confirm your identity (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will disclose to you:

  • The type of personal information we have collected about you.
  • The type of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
  • Our business reasons for collecting personal information.
  • Third parties that we may share that personal information with.
  • The specific pieces of information we collect about you.

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.  Unless allowed by the CCPA, we will not take any of the following measures for exercising your CCPA rights:

  • Deny you goods or services.
  • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
  • Provide you different levels of quality of goods or services.
  • Suggest you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services.

However, we may offer you certain financial incentives allowed by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels.  Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we may offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects.  Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.

Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
To exercise your access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request by calling us at 909-396-5375 or emailing us at

You, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request about your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data twice within a 12-month period.  If you make a request, APR will try providing you with the requested data within 45 days, although circumstances may require more time.  APR will also provide you your information in a generally usable format to allow you to easily transmit the information.  Your request must: provide enough information that allows APR to reasonably verify you are the person whom we collected personal information and describe your request with enough detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.  We will only use the personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or the identity of the person with authority to make the request.

To the extent that your data is protected by the CCPA, you have the right to request that we delete your personal information.  California law, however, allows APR to retain your personal information under certain conditions, even if you have asked us to delete it.  In those situations, APR will retain that information.  Instances in which APR may retain your information include, but are not limited to: Providing you with goods or services; detecting or resolving security or functionality-related issues; complying with local, state, or federal law; conducting research in the public interest; protecting the right to free speech, and carrying out for internal reasons that you may reasonably expect from APR.

Sale and Disclosure of Personal Information
