California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
WHAT IS IT?
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a privacy law that gives California residents more control over their personal information. Consumers in California will be able to download their data, opt out of the sale of their data, delete their data and have a better understanding of what data is being collected and why.
HOW CCPA AFFECTS YOU
As a California consumer, you can choose how a business collects and uses your personal information. The CCPA defines the “sale” of data very broadly and includes sharing your information with our 3rd-party partners to improve your experience. For example, we may share your information with 3rd-parties to create a personalized experience and make relevant promotional offers available to you. You can manage your preferences regarding the sale of your data, delete collected data and download a copy of your data through our Privacy Center.
HOW WE USE YOUR DATA
When you sign up with Rakuten, we collect personal information from you and your connected accounts. We use this information for a range of purposes including account management and general service improvement. Your data also helps us find deals and ads that are relevant to you and provide you with a more personalized experience based on your shopping history.
WHAT TYPE OF DATA WE COLLECT
We’ve organized the data we collect by category:

OPT OUT OF THE SALE OF YOUR DATA
Under the CCPA, you can choose to opt out of having your personal information sold to other businesses, third parties, and other Rakuten companies. Opting out of the sale of your data will not change your access to our service, or change the product offerings available through Rakuten.
DOWNLOAD YOUR DATA
You can choose to download a copy of your Rakuten data.
Once you request to download a copy of your data, we’ll provide you with links to download your personal information. It may take 45 days to process your request. You can view the status of this download request in your Privacy Preferences. For your security, your files will only be available to download for 30 days.
REQUEST TO DELETE YOUR DATA
You can request to delete data stored in your Rakuten account at any time. This includes data such as search history and other information that is not needed to maintain your account. It may take up to 45 days to process your request to delete your data. You can view the status of this request in your Privacy Preferences.
Depending on the types of data being requested for deletion, you may be required to delete your Rakuten account. Choosing to delete your account can’t be undone, and you’ll stop earning Cash Back and rewards when we start the deletion process. If you have Cash Back or American Express Membership Rewards® points on the way, you can choose to wait for your rewards and we’ll delete your account after we send your final payment. If you have a pending Rakuten Hotels reservation, you can choose to wait for your Cash Back to be paid out in the next payment cycle after your completed stay. You can view the status of your request in your Privacy Preferences.
