INFORMATION FOR RESIDENTS OF CALIFORNIA
California Consumer Privacy Act
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides California residents with rights to receive certain disclosures regarding the collection, use, and sharing of “Personal Information,” as well as rights to access and control Personal Information. The CCPA defines “Personal Information” to mean “information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.” Certain information we collect may be exempt from the CCPA because it is considered public information (i.e., it is made available by a government entity) or covered by a federal privacy law.
To the extent that we collect Personal Information from you as a “business” that is subject to the CCPA, that information, our practices, and your rights are described below.
Right to Information Regarding the Categories of Personal Information Collected and Disclosed: Please see the description set forth below and elsewhere in this policy.
Right to Access Information: You have the right to request access to Personal Information collected about you and information regarding the source of that information, the purposes for which we collect it, and the third parties and service providers with whom we share it. We are required to verify your identity before we can act on your request. Please note that if we hold your Personal Information as a service provider to our customer, it may be necessary for you to submit your access request directly to that customer.
Right to Request Deletion of Information: You have the right to request in certain circumstances that we delete Personal Information that we have collected directly from you. We are required to verify your identity before we can act on your request. We may have a reason under the law why we do not have to comply with your request, or why we may comply with it in a more limited way than you anticipated. Please note that if we hold your Personal Information as a service provider to our customer, it may be necessary for you to submit your access request directly to that customer.
Right to Information Regarding Participation in Data Sharing for Financial Incentives: At this time we do not provide any financial incentives to consumers, however, if we start to use these types of incentives we will update this policy.
To the extent that we collect Personal Information from you as a “service provider” to another business that is subject to the CCPA, then it may be necessary for you to submit access, deletion, or other requests you have directly to the companies that you have a direct relationship with.
Rights to Request Access and/or Deletion of Your Personal Information
California residents have the right to request that we disclose what Personal Information we collect and use, as well as the right to request that we delete certain personal information that we have collected from you. To help ensure unauthorized parties do not access your Personal Information, we will require you to verify your identity before we can act on your request. If you are asking for access on behalf of someone else, we will require verification of your identity, as well as proof of authorization by the individual whose personal information you wish to access. Please note that if we hold your Personal Information as a service provider to our customer, it may be necessary for you to submit your access request directly to that customer.
There may be information that we will not return in response in your access request, such as information that would affect the privacy of others or interfere with legal requirements. There are also instances when we will not be able to implement a deletion request, such as when we need to retain the information to provide your service or fulfill a legal obligation. You may submit a request to exercise your rights by sending your request to email@example.com. Please note that based on the limited Personal Information we process, we may not be able to identify you based on your name, postal address, or other direct identifiers.
Categories of Personal Information Collected and Disclosed
The following is a description of our data collection practices, including the Personal Information we collect, the sources of that information, the purposes for which we collect information, and whether we disclose that information to external parties. We may use any and all of the information for any of the purposes described in this policy, unless limitations are listed. The categories we use to describe the information are those enumerated in the CCPA.
Personal Identifiers: We or our customers may collect your email address, username, IP address, device identifiers, and other information about your device.
Commercial Information: When you engage in transactions, we or our customers may create records of goods or services purchased or considered, as well as purchasing or consuming histories or tendencies.
