Definition of Personal Information (CCPA and CPRA)
California “Shine the Light” Law/Your California Privacy Rights
California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits consumers who are California residents, to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, information about the categories of personal information (as defined in the Shine the Light law), if any, that we disclosed in the preceding calendar year to third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Our disclosure requirements apply only if we share our consumers’ personal information with third parties for them to directly market their own products to those consumers, instead of assisting us with our own business. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, contact us as provided in the “Contact Us“ section below.
Information DTNA Collects
As more fully explained in the Privacy Statement above, DTNA’s Sites collect information that identifies, relates to, describes, references, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or device (“ Personal Information”).

Sharing Personal Information/ Disclosures of Personal Information for a Business or Commercial Purpose
DTNA may disclose your Personal Information to a third party for “business” or “commercial” purposes (as defined under the CCPA).

Your Rights and Choices
The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their Personal Information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights
You have the right to request that DTNA disclose certain information to you about its collection and use of your Personal Information over the past 12 months. Once DTNA receives and confirms your verifiable consumer request, DTNA will disclose to you:
Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that DTNA delete any of your Personal Information that DTNA has collected and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once DTNA receives and confirms your verifiable consumer request, DTNA will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your Personal Information from its records, unless an exception applies.
DTNA may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for DTNA or its service provider(s) to:
Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by sending us a message to DTNAprivacy@daimlertruck.com. 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 DTNA to reasonably verify you are the person about whom DTNA collected Personal Information or an authorized representative. This means that in making a request you may be required to: provide your email and phone number, customer information, and/or account sign-up authentication or other information needed to verify your identity depending on the sensitivity of the Personal Information that is the subject of the request.
DTNA 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. If DTNA is unable to verify your identity, we reserve the right to deny the request. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with DTNA. DTNA will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
If you choose to use an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete your information, DTNA may require that you: (1) provide the authorized agent written permission to do so; and (2) verify your own identity directly with DTNA. DTNA will not require these steps if we have received proof that you have provided the authorized agent with a power of attorney pursuant to California Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465. DTNA may deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by you to act on your behalf. DTNA may also deny a request from an agent that does not meet the requirements for authorized agents under the CCPA.
Once DTNA has verified your identity (and your authorized agent, as applicable), DTNA will respond to your request as appropriate. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may charge a reasonable fee to comply with your request. If we are unable to complete your request in whole or in part, we will let you know why.
Response Timing and Format
DTNA makes reasonable efforts to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If DTNA requires more time (up to ninety (90) days), DTNA will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. DTNA will deliver its written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures DTNA provides will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. DTNA’s response will also explain the reasons DTNA cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, DTNA 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, specifically by electronic mail communication.
DTNA does not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If DTNA determines that the request warrants a fee, DTNA will tell you why it made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
However, DTNA may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive DTNA offers 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.
Changes to DTNA’s California Privacy Notice
DTNA reserves the right to amend this privacy notice at its discretion and at any time. When DTNA makes changes to this privacy notice, it will post the updated notice on DTNA’s Sites and update the notice’s effective date. Your continued use of DTNA’s Sites following the posting of changes constitutes your acceptance of such changes.
If you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Statement, the ways in which DTNA collects and uses your information, your choices and rights regarding such use, or wish to exercise your rights under California law, please contact DTNA.
