California Collection Notice
If you are a California resident, California law requires us to provide you with some additional information regarding how we collect, use, and share your “personal information” (as defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”)), other than the personal information we collect in connection with providing financial products and services.
Depending on how you interact with our website and services, in the preceding 12 months, we may have collected the following categories of personal information about you, in addition to the information we collect in connection with providing financial products and services:
- Identifiers, such as your name and contact information, IP address, and mobile device identifiers

In the preceding 12 months, we have used and disclosed this information for the purposes and to the categories of third parties described above.
Your California Privacy Rights
If you are a California resident, you may have certain rights. California law may permit you to request that we:
- Provide you the categories of personal information we have collected or disclosed about you in the last twelve months; the categories of sources of such information; the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling your personal information; and the categories of third parties with whom we shared personal information.
- Provide access to and/or a copy of certain information we hold about you.
- Delete certain information we have about you.
- Opt you out of the sale of your personal information. As noted below, we do not “sell” your personal information, as that term is defined by the CCPA.
You may have the right to receive information about the financial incentives that we offer to you for your personal information (if any). You also have the right to not be discriminated against (as provided for in applicable law) for exercising certain of your rights. Certain information may be exempt from such requests under applicable law. For example, we need certain types of information so that we can provide the RMI Website to you and for compliance with applicable law.

To do so, you must provide us with written authorization or a power of attorney, signed by you, for the agent to act on your behalf. You will still need to verify your identity directly with us.
The CCPA sets forth certain obligations for businesses that “sell” personal information. Based on the definition of “sell” under the CCPA and under current regulatory guidance, we do not believe we engage in such activity and have not engaged in such activity in the past twelve months. We share certain information as set forth in the Information Use and Sharing section, above, and allow our service providers to collect certain information about your activity, for example through cookies as explained in Cookies / Tracking Technologies section, above.

Please note we may take reasonable steps to verify your identity and the authenticity of the request.
