Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will delete your personal information from our records (and direct our service providers to do the same), unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
- Support compliance with a legal obligation.
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
If you wish to exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to Inventus Power Attn: Corporate Controller 1200 Internationale Parkway, Woodridge, IL 60517; (630) 410-7900; 1-877-423-4242; firstname.lastname@example.org.
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to 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 portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative
- Describe your request with sufficient 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. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
Response Timing and Format
We will confirm receipt of your request within ten (10) business days. If you do not receive confirmation within the 10-day timeframe, please contact us at the contact information provided below.
We endeavor to substantially respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to another 45 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
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 our receipt of your verifiable request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights
We do not sell your personal information, and do not disclose your personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If that changes, an opt-in notice will be provided to relevant individuals, and this Notice will be amended to describe your rights under California’s Shine the Light law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83).
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
- Deny you goods or services.

- Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
- Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
We do not currently offer financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that could result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. If that changes, an opt-in notice will be provided to relevant individuals.
Please be aware that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, Inventus Power cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit on or through the Website and you do so at your own risk.
