The CCPA provides California Consumers with several rights, including the following: the right to know what Personal Information is collected about them; the right to know how their Personal Information may be used; the right to know to whom their Personal Information is disclosed; the rights to request access to and/or deletion of their Personal Information; and the right to request that their Personal Information not be sold under certain circumstances.
Through the CaPP, Alliant Power will identify the Personal Information the Company may collect and share, explain the privacy rights of California Consumers, and provide one or more ways for California Consumers to exercise their rights.

The Company may collect Personal Information from California Consumers when they interact with the Company online (through our websites, our other websites) or offline (such as through employment-related paperwork). The Personal Information the Company may collect from California Consumers will depend on the nature of the Company’s interaction with the California Consumers, but can include the following categories of information that the Company has collected in the preceding twelve (12) months:

- Alliant Power Has Not Sold/Does Not Sell California Consumers’ Personal Information
In the last twelve months, Alliant Power has NOT sold any Personal Information pertaining to California Consumers to any third parties and will not sell such information going forward.
- The Rights Of California Consumers Under The CCPA
The CCPA provides California Consumers with specific rights. These rights include the following:
- The Right to Know. California Consumers have the right under the CCPA to request that the Company disclose to them: a) the categories and specific pieces of Personal Information the Company has collected about them; b) the categories of sources from which the Company collected the information; c) the categories of Personal Information that the Company has sold or disclosed to a third party and the categories of recipients of that information; and d) the business or commercial purpose(s) for the Company’s collection, disclosure and/or sale of the Personal Information that pertains to them.
- The Right to Deletion. California Consumers have the right under the CCPA to provide a verifiable request to Alliant Power for the deletion of any Personal Information that the Company has collected about them.
- The Right to Opt-Out. California Consumers have the right under the CCPA to opt-out of the sale of their Personal Information.
- The Right to Non-Discrimination. California Consumers have the right not to be discriminated against for exercising any of their rights under the CCPA.
- How California Consumers May Exercise Their Rights
The Company will respond to requests made pursuant to applicable law so long as it can verify the individual submitting the request. California Consumers can exercise their rights by: 1) emailing a request to mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org; or 2) contacting Alliant Power by telephone at: 800.735.7358.
To process any request for access or deletion, the Company must be able to verify the identity of a California Consumer to a reasonable degree of certainty. To verify that identity, California Consumers must provide the required information when completing the online request form or making a telephonic request, including by providing the last 4 digits of the California Consumer’s social security number. The Company will ask California Consumers to provide their contact information and additional identifiers based on their relationship with the Company. Before the Company processes the request, it will match these data points with a third-party identity verification service and data points the Company currently maintains to verify the California Consumer’s identity.
A California Consumer may also submit a request through an authorized agent. To submit such a request, an authorized agent must submit either a power of attorney that complies with California law and reflects that he/she represents the California Consumer who the agent claims to represent, or a document executed by the California Consumer that authorizes the agent to make the CCPA request on the California Consumer’s behalf. The Company may also request that the California Consumer follow the process above to ensure that his/her identity is appropriately verified.
- Certain Limitations May Appy To The Efforts Of California Consumers’ Efforts To Exercise Their Rights
Please note that the Company may not be required to provide California Consumers with any of the specific pieces of information the Company has collected about them or delete any related information if the Company is unable to verify their identity.
In addition, the Company may not be required to delete certain information under certain circumstances. The CCPA includes exemptions providing that the Company does not have to delete data that, for example, is necessary to comply with applicable legal obligations, complete a transaction, detect security issues, or for certain other internal purposes.
