Prior versions of this Additional California Privacy Disclosures are available here.
Scope of Disclosures
These Additional California Privacy Disclosures (the “CA Disclosures”) supplement the information contained in our Privacy Notice and apply solely to individual residents of the State of California (“consumers” or “you”).
These CA Disclosures provide additional information about how we collect, use, disclose and otherwise process personal information of individual residents of the State of California within the scope of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended and/or supplemented (“CCPA”). For a detailed description of how we collect, use, disclose, and otherwise process personal information in connection with our services, please see our Privacy Notice.
Unless otherwise expressly stated, all terms in these CA Disclosures have the same meaning as defined in our Privacy Notice or as otherwise defined in the CCPA.
Personal Information Disclosures
When we use the term “personal information” in these CA Disclosures, we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. It does not include information that is made publicly available, that is deidentified or aggregated such that it can no longer reasonably be used to infer information about, or otherwise be linked to, you, or that is otherwise excluded from the CCPA’s scope.
These CA Disclosures also do not apply to information relating to our employees, contractors, applicants and other personnel. In addition, we often act as a “service provider,” as defined in the CCPA, processing personal information on behalf of our customers, and these CA Disclosures do not apply to the personal information processing we perform as a service provider.
As described in more detail in the Our Collection of Personal Information section in our Privacy Notice, we collect the following categories of personal information:
- Identifiers, such as full name and IP address
- California Customer Records (Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.80(e)), such as mailing address, email address, phone number and state and country of residence
- Commercial Information, such as product or service interests and orders
- Internet/Network Information, such as log file data (including operating system and browser type) and clickstream data (including your usage and activity on our web sites and online services)
- Geolocation Data, such as your general geographic location based on your IP address or more precise location when accessing our services through a mobile device
- Sensory Information, such as the sound of your voice from calls with us (where permitted by law).
- Professional/Employment Information, such as your title, company name, professional background and the nature of your relationship with us
- Other Personal Information, such as inquiries, requests or comments you choose to send us
- Inferences, such as predictions about which services may be of interest to you and your employer
We collect this information directly from you, from your browser or device when you interact with our services, from your employer, from information providers and from other publicly available sources. For more information about the personal information we collect and how we collect it, please refer to the Our Collection of Personal Information section of our Privacy Notice.
We collect personal information from and about you for a variety of purposes. For example, we use personal information to communicate with customers about our services, to provide customers with our services, and to otherwise operate our business. For more information about our use of personal information, please refer to the Our Use of Personal Information section of our Privacy Notice.
We may at times receive, or process personal information to create, deidentified information that can no longer reasonably be used to infer information about, or otherwise be linked to, a particular individual. Where we maintain deidentified information, we will maintain and use the information in deidentified form and not attempt to reidentify the information expect as required or permitted by law.
Disclosure, Sale, and Sharing of Personal Information
As further described in the Our Disclosure of Personal Information section of the Privacy Notice, we may disclose all of the personal information identified above to third parties for business purposes. The categories of third parties to whom we disclose personal information for these purposes include our affiliates, businesses you represent, data analytics providers, marketing partners, service providers, and certain other third parties where you have provided your consent or direction, we are engaging in a business transaction or reorganization, or we are addressing our legal obligations and rights.
We do not otherwise sell personal information or share personal information for purposes of targeted advertising. We also do not sell the personal information of individuals we know to be less than 16 years of age or share such information for targeted advertising purposes. In addition, we do not sell sensitive information or share sensitive information for purposes of targeted advertising, nor use sensitive information for the purpose of inferring characteristics about a consumer in a manner that would require our offering of the right to limit the use of such information.
Retention of Personal Information
We retain personal information only for as long as is reasonably necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected. However, if necessary, we may retain personal information for longer periods of time, until set retention periods and deadlines expire, for instance where we are required to do so in accordance with legal, tax, or accounting requirements set by a legislature, regulator, or other government authority.
To determine the appropriate duration of the retention of personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of personal information, and whether we can attain our objectives by other means, as well as our legal, regulatory, tax, accounting, and other applicable obligations.
