California Consumer Privacy Act
California residents (“CA customers”) have certain rights concerning their personal information, including under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). The preceding sections of this notice describe Props’ practices regarding the collection, use, disclosure, and sale of personal information. This section supplements the preceding sections by describing CA customers’ additional rights with respect to their personal information and explaining how to exercise such rights. As provided above, we collect and use the following categories of personal information stated in the CCPA for the business and commercial purposes described in this notice: real name; username; postal address; email address; telephone number; social security number; driver’s license, state identification, and passport numbers; date of birth and age; profile photographs; credit card, debit card, and bank account numbers and other payment and financial information; tax information and documents; commercial information, including records of products or services purchased, obtained, or considered; information on users’ interaction with the Website and Application(s) and other websites and applications, including information on preferences, usage, communications, subscriptions, SNS usernames, associations, likes, and public profile information; and inferences drawn from such information. We collect this personal information from the categories of sources described above. We may disclose the foregoing categories of personal information for our business and commercial purposes to the extent permitted by applicable law.
Right to Know About Personal Information Collected, Used, Shared, or Sold.
CA customers have the right to request that we disclose the following information for the period covering the 12 months preceding their request:
- the categories of personal information we collected about you;
- the categories of sources from which we collected personal information about you;
- the categories of personal information that we have disclosed about you for our business purposes and the categories of suppliers to whom the personal information was disclosed;
- the categories of personal information that we sold to third parties and the categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold, if any;
- the business or commercial purpose(s) for which personal information about you was collected, shared or sold; and • the specific pieces of personal information we collected about you.
Right to Request Deletion of Personal Information.
CA customers have the right to request that Props delete the personal information we maintain about them, subject to certain exceptions.
Right to Opt-Out of the Sale of Personal Information.
CA customers have the right to opt-out of a business’s sale of their personal information. Under the CCPA, the terms “sell,” “selling,” or “sale” mean selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, a CA customer’s personal information to another business or third party for monetary or other valuable consideration. The CCPA provides that a business does not sell personal information when:
- the customer uses or directs the business to intentionally disclose his or her personal information or uses the business to intentionally interact with a third party, as long as the third party does not also sell the personal information; or
- the business uses or shares with a service provider personal information of a customer that is necessary to perform a business purpose, as long as (i) the business has provided appropriate notice that personal information is being used or shared and (ii) the service provider does not further collect, sell, or use the personal information of the customer except as necessary to perform the business purpose.
As described above, we and certain other companies place tracking technologies on our Services, which allow us and such companies to receive information about your activity on our Services that is associated with your browser or device. Based on our current understanding of the CCPA, Props believes this is not a “sale” of personal information and that we have not sold the personal information of CA customers, including minors under 18 years of age, within the preceding 12 months. CA customers may control the use of certain tracking technologies and request to opt-out of the “sale” of personal information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Right to Non-Discrimination for Exercising Privacy Rights.
Props will not discriminate against CA customers for exercising their rights under the CCPA.
How To Exercise Your Rights.
You may submit a request by emailing us at email@example.com. Please note that Props may deny or fulfill a request only in part, based on our legal rights and obligations. Please also note that, except as otherwise provided by applicable California law, for purposes of these rights, personal information does not include information about job applicants, employees and other of our personnel or information about employees and other representatives of third-party entities we may interact with.
When we receive a request, we will verify the identity of the requestor and undertake to respond within the periods set by California law. If a CA customer has a password-protected account with Props, we may verify their identity through Props’ existing authentication practices and will require him or her to re-authenticate themselves before disclosing or deleting the customer’s data. If a CA customer does not have a password-protected account, we will take reasonable steps to verify their identity in accordance with the CCPA prior to responding any request. The verification steps may vary depending on the sensitivity of the personal information. If we cannot verify a requestor’s identity using these methods, we may use an appropriate third-party verification service.
Designating an Authorized Agent to Submit Privacy Requests.
CA customers may use an authorized agent to submit a Request to Know or a Request to Delete. An authorized agent is a person or entity registered with the California Secretary of State that a CA customer has authorized to act on his or her behalf. If you choose to submit a privacy request to PROPS through an authorized agent, we may require that you provide the agent with written permission to do so and that the agent verify their own identity with PROPS. If your privacy request is submitted by an agent without proof that they have been authorized by you to act on your behalf, we may deny the request.
“Shine the Light” Law
A CA customer who has provided personal information to a business with whom he has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes is entitled to request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. In general, if the business has made such a disclosure of personal information, upon receipt of a request by a CA customer, the business is required to provide a list of all third parties to whom personal information was disclosed in the preceding calendar year, as well as a list of the categories of personal information that were disclosed.
We have opted for this alternative approach. As stated in this notice, we give customers a mechanism to opt out of having their personal information disclosed to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Therefore, we are not required to maintain or disclose a list of third parties that received your personal information for marketing purposes. If you wish to opt-out of sharing your personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
