Please note that Personal Information does not include:

    • personal information covered by certain sector-specific privacy laws, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) or California Financial Information Privacy Act (CalFIPA), and the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act of 1994.

What we Sell and Right to Opt-Out

Citi Trends does not sell the personal information of minors under 16 years of age without affirmative authorization. Citi Trends does not sell our users’ personal information in the traditional sense (i.e., get paid to share your information); however, the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) defines “sale” very broadly, and it likely includes certain transfers of information by Citi Trends in the sense that Citi Trends sells and has sold personal information to third parties in the preceding 12 months as disclosed in the table below. As a California resident, you have the right to direct Citi Trends to stop selling your personal information, and to refrain from doing so in the future, which is called the “Right to Opt-Out.”

You may exercise your Right to Opt-Out by clicking “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” by submitting a request to privacy@cititrends.com.

Authorized Agent for Opt-Out: If you use an authorized agent to exercise your right to opt-out of the sale of personal information, please note that Citi Trends requires that the authorized agent submit proof in the form of a written authorization from you that they have been authorized to act on your behalf.

Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales.

We have sold. What personal information has Citi Trends sold to third parties over the last 12 months? Categories of third parties to whom this category of personal information has been sold
A. Identifiers: For example, a real name, alias, postal address, unique personal identifier, online identifier, Internet Protocol address, email address, account name, social security number, driver’s license number, passport number, or other similar identifiers.

Your Right to Request Deletion of Your Personal Information

You have the right to request that Citi Trends delete any of your personal information collected or maintained by Citi Trends, subject to certain exceptions. You can do this through a verified consumer request. That process is described below in the section, “Submitting a Verified Consumer Request.”

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

  • Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
  • Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  • Comply with a legal obligation.
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

Submitting a Verified Consumer Request

You have the right to submit verified consumer requests to know information or for deletion. The request to know can be for any or all of the following about you:

(1) Specific pieces of personal information that Citi Trends has;

(2) Categories of personal information Citi Trends has collected;

(3) Categories of sources from which the personal information is collected;

(4) Categories of personal information that Citi Trends sold or disclosed for a business purpose;

(5) Categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold or disclosed for a business purpose; and

(6) The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information.

The request to delete is to delete any of your personal information collected or maintained by Citi Trends, subject to certain exceptions.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request to know information twice within a 12-month period.  We 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 that the personal information relates to you. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

You can submit requests by emailing us at privacy@cititrends.com or by calling 844.968.1067.  Your request will be verified using information you provide. If you call 844.968.1067, you will be asked to provide the same information requested via email for verification purposes.

Once we receive your verifiable consumer request, we will send you an acknowledgement letter within 10 days which will describe our verification process. We will respond to your request within 45 days, if we are able to verify your identity. Requests for deletion will require a separate confirmation that you want your information deleted.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Please note that, in responding to our request, we are not permitted to disclose or provide you with your Social Security Number, Driver’s License Number, or other government issued identification number, financial account number, any health insurance or medical identification number, an account password, or security questions and answers.

Using an Authorized Agent to Submit a Request

Only you, a person registered with the California Secretary of State, or a person you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. If you use an authorized agent, you may provide a power of attorney executed pursuant to California Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465. If a power of attorney that meets those provisions is not submitted, you will be required to verify your identity directly by submitting a verified consumer request according to the procedures in the section “Submitting a Verified Consumer Request.” If anyone purporting to be an authorized agent for a consumer contacts us, we will require proof that the authorized agent has been authorized to act on the consumer’s behalf.

Your Right to Non-Discrimination for the Exercise of a Privacy Right

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

  • Deny you goods or services.
  • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
  • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

However, we 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 we offer 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. We currently do not provide such financial incentives.

Changes to Our Privacy Notice

Citi Trends reserves the right to amend this privacy notice at our discretion and at any time. When we make changes to this privacy notice, we will post the updated notice on the website and update the notice’s effective date. Your continued use of our website following the posting of changes constitutes your acceptance of such changes.
