You have the right to know:
You have the right to control your information by requesting:
- Deletion of certain personal information we have about you
- Correction of inaccurate Personal Information
California law places certain obligations on businesses that “sell” Personal Information to third parties or “share” Personal Information with third parties for “cross-context behavioral advertising” as those terms are defined under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). We do not “sell” or “share” the Personal Information covered by this Policy and have not done so in the twelve months prior to the effective date of this Policy. The CCPA also provides you with the ability to limit the use of your sensitive personal information for certain purposes. We do not process job applicant sensitive personal information for any purposes for which the right to limit applies.
You have the right to Access:
- Access to and/or a copy of certain personal information we hold about you
- Have an authorized agent exercise rights on your behalf
Please note that certain information may be exempt from such requests under California law. For example, we may not honor requests if the information you seek is protected by a legal privilege, seeks information beyond 12 months from the date of the request, or we reasonably believe the request is unfounded or excessive, among other possible reasons.
When you exercise one of your rights, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before responding to a request. In doing so, we may ask you for additional information so that we can match the identification information you provide to us with information we maintain in our files about you. If we are unable to verify you through this method, we have the right to request additional information from you.
You also have the right to not be discriminated or retaliated against for exercising your rights.
