6. Your California Privacy Rights

This section of the Policy provides additional information for California residents and describes our information practices pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act 2018, as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act 2020, and its implementing regulations (the “CCPA”). This section applies to “personal information” as defined in the CCPA, whether collected online or offline. This section does not address or apply to our handling of personal information that is exempt under the CCPA, such as publicly available information, deidentified information, or aggregated data.  

Retention of Personal Information. We retain your personal information for as long as needed, or permitted, based on the reason we obtained it (consistent with applicable law). When deciding how long to keep your personal information, we consider whether we are subject to any legal obligations (e.g., any laws that require us to keep records for a certain period of time before we can delete them) or whether we have taken any legal positions (e.g., issued any legal holds or otherwise need to preserve the information).

Your CCPA Rights. The CCPA provides California residents with certain rights regarding their personal information. Note that these rights only apply to personal information we collect and process under this Policy as a business or controller. For personal information we process on behalf of our customers, in our capacity as a service provider or processor, please submit your request directly to the relevant customer with whom you have a relationship, and we will provide reasonable assistance to that customer as necessary to enable them to respond to your requests to exercise your privacy rights. In general, California residents, including our customers’ employees who reside in California, have the following rights with respect to their personal information, subject to certain exceptions:

Right to Know/Access. With respect to the personal information we have collected about you, you have the right to request (subject to certain exemptions and exceptions):

  • The categories or personal information we collected about you;
  • The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected;
  • Our business or commercial purposes for collecting, selling, or sharing personal information;
  • The categories of third parties to whom we have disclosed personal information; and
  • A copy of the specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you.

Right to Correct. You have the right to request that we correct inaccuracies in your personal information.

Right to Delete. Subject to certain exceptions, you have the right to request we delete personal information we have collected from you.

Right to Opt-Out of Sales and Sharing. You have the right to opt-out of “sales” and “sharing” of your personal information, as those terms are defined under the CCPA. We do not “sell” or “share” personal information as defined by the CCPA. We do not sell or share sensitive personal information, nor do we sell or share any Personal Information about individuals who we know are under sixteen (16) years old.

Right to Limit Use of Sensitive Personal Information. We do not engage in uses or disclosures of “sensitive personal information” that would trigger the right to limit use of sensitive personal information under the CCPA.

Right to Non-Discrimination. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of the rights described in this section.

Exercising Your CCPA Rights. If you are a California resident and would like to exercise your CCPA rights, you may do so via any of the methods described below:

Verification. Before responding to your request, we must first verify your identity using the personal information you recently provided to us. You must provide us with your name, street address, city, state, zip code and an e-mail address or phone number. We will take steps to verify your request by matching the information provided by you with the information we have in our records. In some cases, we may request additional information in order to verify your identity, or where necessary to process your request. If we are unable to verify your identity after a good faith attempt, we may deny the request and, if so, will explain the basis for the denial.

Authorized Agent. You may designate someone as an authorized agent to submit requests and act on your behalf. Authorized agents will be required to provide proof of their authorization in their first communication with us, and we may also require that the relevant consumer directly verify their identity and the authority of the authorized agent.


7. Children’s Information
