YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS (FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS ONLY)

Section 1798.83 of the California Civil Code requires select businesses to disclose policies relating to the sharing of certain categories of customers' Personal Information with third parties. These businesses are required to accept requests for disclosures of these policies from customers but are only required to honor one request per calendar year. Businesses have thirty (30) days to respond to each inquiry to the designated address. Each inquiring customer will receive an explanation of the categories of customer information shared and the names and addresses of any third party businesses. In limited circumstances, customers' failure to submit requests in the manner specified will not require a response from the business.

If You are a California resident, You may request such information from Us by sending a letter to the address on the “Contact” > “At Your Service” link on our website.  In your letter, please provide your name, address, and email address, as well as a request that We provide such information to you, by using the following or similar verbiage, “I request that Commonwealth Contractors Group Self-Insurance Association provide its third party information sharing disclosures required by section 1798.83 of the California Civil Code.”
