Your Right to the Deletion of Personal Information
Under California Civil Code Section §1798.105, you have the right to request that Tradesmen delete any Personal Information about you that Tradesmen has collected from you.
Upon Tradesmen’s receipt of a verifiable consumer request from you to delete your Personal Information, Tradesmen will delete your Personal Information from its records, notify any service providers or contractors to delete your Personal Information from their records, and notify all third parties to whom Tradesmen has shared the Personal Information to delete your Personal Information, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.
Tradesmen may maintain a confidential record of deletion requests solely for the purpose of preventing the Personal Information of a consumer who has submitted a deletion request from being shared, for compliance with laws, or for other purposes, solely to the extent permissible under Title 1.81.5 of the California Civil Code.
A service provider or contractor must cooperate with Tradesmen in responding to a verifiable consumer request from you, and at the direction of Tradesmen, shall delete, or enable Tradesmen to delete and shall notify any of its own service providers or contractors to delete, Personal Information about you collected, used, processed, or retained by the service provider or the contractor.

Tradesmen, or a service provider or contractor acting pursuant to its contract with Tradesmen, another service provider, or another contractor, is not required to comply with your request to delete your Personal Information if it is reasonably necessary for Tradesmen, or the service provider or the contractor, to maintain your Personal Information in order to:
(1) Complete the transaction for which the Personal Information was collected, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, provide a good or service requested by you, or reasonably anticipated by you within the context of Tradesmen’s ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform a contract between Tradesmen and you.
(2) Help to ensure security and integrity to the extent the use of your Personal Information is reasonably necessary and proportionate for those purposes.
(3) Debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
(4) Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise that consumer’s right of free speech, or exercise another right provided for by law.

(6) Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research that conforms or adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when Tradesmen’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.
(7) To enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with Tradesmen and compatible with the context in which you provided the information.
(8) Comply with a legal obligation.
