Effective Date: As of January 1, 2020
The California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”), a new privacy law that provides California consumers certain rights regarding their personal information (“PI”) became effective on January 1, 2020. However, as of that date the California Attorney General had not completed the rule making process to establish the regulations for covered businesses to implement the law. Accordingly, we are delaying our full implementation of the law until we have definitive guidance from final regulations, and it will take some time following the date the regulations are final to implement them. Further, we may from time-to-time update information in this and other notices regarding our data practices and your rights, modify our methods for responding to your requests, and/or supplement our response to your requests, as we continue to develop our compliance program to reflect the development of the law and our understanding of how it relates to our data practices. In the meantime, if you are a California consumer and would like to register a request under your “right to know about personal information collected, disclosed or sold” (including your right to obtain copies of specific pieces of PI and/or information about categories of PI practices), your “right to request deletion of personal information,” or your “right to opt-out of the sale of personal information,” (“CCPA Rights”) you may contact us at our Consumer Rights Request page here or email us at email@example.com. We will respond to your request as soon as we have guidance on how to properly verify your identity and the means to respond; however, note that CCPA Rights do not apply to PI collected from (a) job applicants, current and former employees or independent contractors (“HR Data Subjects”), or (b) representatives of another business in connection with business communications or transactions (“B-to-B Data Subjects”).
We and third parties may associate cookies with our Website that track your activities on our Website, and/or across time and other services. Although there is not yet a consensus, we currently do not believe that the collection of data by third party cookies and related technologies associated with our Website result in a sale of your PI by us. However, to learn how you can exercise certain choices regarding these activities, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.
Some browsers may enable you to turn on or off a so-called “Do Not Track” signal. Because there is no industry consensus on what these signals should mean and how they should operate, we do not look for or respond to “Do Not Track” signals.
California Civil Code section 1798.83 permits individual Website users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed their PI (if any) for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the type of PI disclosed to those parties. If you are a California resident and would like to request this information, please submit your request in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will revise this California Privacy Notice from time-to-time as the law becomes clearer and we are able to provide you with better information on your CCPA rights and how to exercise them.
