Links to Third-Party Websites
We implement and maintain reasonable security appropriate to the nature of the personal information that we collect, use, retain, transfer or otherwise process. While we are committed to developing, implementing, maintaining, monitoring and updating a reasonable information security program, no such program can be perfect; in other words, all risk cannot reasonably be eliminated. Data security incidents and breaches can occur due to vulnerabilities, criminal exploits or other factors that cannot reasonably be prevented. Accordingly, while our reasonable security program is designed to manage data security risks and thus help prevent data security incidents and breaches, it cannot be assumed that the occurrence of any given incident or breach results from our failure to implement and maintain reasonable security.

Rights Under California Law
If you are a resident of California, you may have rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), as described in this section of our Privacy Notice. Please note that we operate substantially in a business-to-business (“B2B”) context and nearly all of personal information we obtain, use and share is covered in whole or in part by applicable CCPA exemptions for B2B data, financial data covered by federal law such as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, and employment-related data. We do not sell personal information subject to CCPA.
Individuals who are California residents and whose information is covered by the relevant provisions of the CCPA, and is not subject to applicable exemptions, may have the following privacy rights, provided that the appropriate level of authentication is provided:
to request disclosure of personal information we collect and share about you during the 12-month period preceding our receipt of the request, including:
the categories of personal information we have collected about you
the categories of sources from which we collected the personal information
the business or commercial purposes for which we collected or sold the personal information
the categories of third parties with which we shared the personal information
the categories of personal information that we have shared with service providers who provide services to us
the specific pieces of personal information we collected
to request deletion of personal information we have collected about you.
There may be some types of personal information that can be associated with a household (a group of people living together in a single home). Requests for access or deletion of household Personal Information must be made by each member of the household. We will verify each member of the household using the verification criteria explained below. If we are unable to verify the identity of each household member with the degree of certainty required, we will not be able to respond to the request. In addition, we may not comply with requests that would infringe on the privacy rights of other individuals. We will notify you to explain the basis of our denial.
You have a right not to be discriminated against for the exercise of the privacy rights conferred by the CCPA. If you exercise any of the rights explained in this Privacy Notice, we will continue to treat you fairly and not discriminate against you on the basis that you have exercised such rights.
To respond to your requests, we will ask you for at least two pieces of personal information and, for requests for specific pieces of personal information, we will ask you for at least three pieces of personal information. The information we require may vary depending on your relationship to us, and may include your full legal name, residential address, email, phone, as well information we may have on file about you or other information that may be necessary to verify your identity. If you are requesting on behalf of another consumer, we may request additional information from you and/or the consumer to verify their identity. If you are legally entitled to such rights, you may designate an agent to submit a request on your behalf. The agent can be a natural person or a business entity that is registered with the California Secretary of State. If you would like to designate an agent to act on your behalf, you and the agent will need to comply with our agent verification process.
