Sharing Personal Information

We may share or disclose your personal information with the following third parties:

We have centralized certain aspects of our data processing and administration in accordance with applicable laws in order to allow us to better manage our business.

For example, your personal information may be provided to managers or staff of our affiliates in other locations to enable those affiliates to provide us with support services.

As we continue to develop our business, we may buy or sell businesses in transactions such as mergers, reorganizations, acquisitions, or the purchase of all or a portion of business assets. We or our assets may also be purchased in these types of transactions. Personal information is often transferred as part of these transactions.

We may be required to disclose personal information if we are compelled to do so by a court of law or requested to do so by a governmental entity, regulatory authority or stock exchange, or if we determine it is necessary or desirable to comply with the law or to protect or defend our rights or property in accordance with applicable laws.

PRIVACY NOTICE FOR CALIFORNIA CONSUMERS

Last Updated: July 1, 2020

This Privacy Notice for California Consumers

This Privacy Notice for California Consumers does not apply to employment-related personal information collected from California-based employees, job applicants or independent contractors. The CCPA also temporarily exempts personal information reflecting a written or verbal business-to-business communication ("B2B personal information") from some its requirements and accordingly this Notice does not apply to B2B personal information in those circumstances.

Personal Information We Collect About California Consumers

When we talk about personal information in this Privacy Notice for California Consumers, we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, references, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer, household, or device.

Personal information does not include information that has been excluded from the scope of the CCPA, such as publicly available information from government records; de-identified or aggregated information; and certain categories of information governed by other sector-specific privacy laws.

Our Privacy Notice above describes the personal information we collect on or through this Site and in other situations and interactions with you. The personal information we collect, and have collected within the 12-month period preceding the date of this Privacy Notice for California Consumers, depending on the particular business situation or transaction, includes the following categories of personal information (as such are defined under the CCPA):

Category Examples and Explanation
Identifiers We collect identifiers, such as a name, alias, address, Internet Protocol address, email address, Social Security number, driver's license number, passport number, or other similar identifiers.
Personal information subject to the California Customer Records statute (Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.80(e)) We collect additional information, such as signature, physical characteristics or description, education, employment information, employment history, bank account number, credit card number, or any other financial information, and medical information.  Some personal information included in this category may overlap with other categories.
Protected classifications under California or federal law We collect information in protected classifications, such as age, race, sex, national origin and citizenship.

Online or other similar network activity We collect information as described in our Cookie Policy.

Use, Sources and Sharing of Personal Information of California Consumers

For the 12-month period prior to the date of this Privacy Notice for California Consumers, the Privacy Policy above describes the following: (a) the categories of sources from which we collect personal information in the section entitled How Personal Information is Collected, and (b) the commercial and business purposes for collecting the categories of personal information in the section entitled Use of Personal Information. In the 12-month period prior to the date of this Privacy Notice for California Consumers, we have disclosed the categories of personal information listed above for a business purpose to third parties as described in the Privacy Policy above under Sharing Personal Information.

California Consumer Privacy Rights

The CCPA provides consumers with specific rghts regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

Access.

You have the right to request that we provide certain information about our collection, use and disclosure of your personal information over the past 12 months. You can request that we disclose to you:

Although we do not sell personal information, you can request that we tell you the categories of information we sold and the categories of third parties to whom we sold each category of personal information.

Your request is subject to our verifying your identity and authority as described in the section called Verifying Requests.  We may deny your request to the extent permitted by the CCPA. We do not currently provide these access and data portability rights for B2B personal information.

Deletion

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collect from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Verifying Requests below), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. We may deny your deletion request as permitted by the CCPA. We do not currently provide these deletion rights for B2B personal information.

Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights

We do not sell personal information of consumers, including those known to be less than 16 years old. However, the CCPA provides that if you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information at any time (the "right to opt-out").

How to Submit a Request

To exercise the rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

In submitting an email request to exercise your rights, please provide us in the email with the State in which you reside, your name, a return email or phone number where we can contact you, or indicate we can reply to the email you send to us.  Please also identify which privacy rights you would like to exercise. In responding to you, we will take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to your personal information or comply with your request as described in Verifying Requests below.

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period.

Verifying Requests

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.

To help protect your privacy and maintain security, we will take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to your personal information or complying with your request. If you request access to or deletion of your personal information, we may require you to provide us with information about you to verify your identity.

The type of information that we ask for may vary depending on the type and sensitivity of the personal information we hold about you or that you request to know or delete. If additional information is required to verify your request, we may contact you to provide us with that information before responding to your request for access or deletion. In addition, if you ask us to provide you with specific pieces of personal information, we will require you to sign a declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request. If you designate an authorized agent to make an access or deletion request on your behalf, that authorized agent must provide us with a copy of the signed written permission from you. We can deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof that the agent is authorized by you to act on your behalf. We may also require you to verify your own identity directly with us (as described above) and confirm with us that you provided that permission.

We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.

Non-Discrimination

You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for the exercise of the privacy rights provided by the CCPA.

Additional Information

To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may charge a reasonable fee to comply with your request. This Privacy Notice for California Consumers is available in alternative formats upon request.  Please contact us as described in the section called CCPA Notice Contact Information to request this privacy notice in an alternative format.

Other California Privacy Rights

While we do not disclose personal information of consumers to third parties for their direct marketing purposes, California's "Shine the Light" law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to us or write to us as described in the section called CCPA Notice Contact Information.
