9. NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
California consumers have additional rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
Your Rights and Choices Under the CCPA
Right to Know and Access the Information Collected About You
If you are a California resident, you have the right to request that Datawhere disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we have received and verified your request, we may disclose to you, subject to the type of request made and allowable exceptions under the CCPA:
The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you.
The categories of personal information we collected about you.
The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
Our business or commercial purpose for collecting that personal information.
However, Datawhere will not at any time in response to a request disclose a consumer’s financial account number, an account password, or security questions and answers.
Datawhere is not required to retain any personal information collected for a single, one-time transaction, if the information is not regularly retained by Datawhere, or re-identify any anonymous or de-identified information, in order to disclose that information to you.
Deletion Request Rights
If you are a California resident, you have the right to request that Datawhere delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we have received and verified your request, we will delete your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
Comply with a legal obligation.
Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
Exercising Your Rights
If you are a California resident and you wish to exercise your rights to know the information Datawhere has collected about you and/or request that Datawhere delete the information about you, you will need to submit a verifiable consumer request so that Datawhere is able to corroborate your identity and provide your information to you.
To exercise your rights, please submit a verifiable request by:
Calling us at 855-372-CCPA
Emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information for data and to delete data. You may only make a verifiable consumer request for data access twice within a 12-month period.
The verifiable consumer request must:
Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
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 the personal information relates to you.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. However, we do consider requests made through your password protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account.
You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment for exercising your privacy rights under the CCPA, and Datawhere will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights after you have exercised those rights.
A business’s denial of a consumer’s request to know, request to delete, or request to opt-out
for reasons permitted by the CCPA or the California Attorney General CCPA Regulations shall not be considered discriminatory.
