At Flustr, we are mindful of our responsibilities under the California Consumer Privacy Act (together with its implementing regulations, “CCPA”) regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of your Personal Information, both online and offline. This Privacy Notice applies only to California residents who are subject to the CCPA.
We collect information that identifies, relates to, describes, references, and is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household (“California Personal Information”). We have obtained the following categories of California Personal Information within the last twelve months:
For each of these categories, we obtain California Personal Information from a variety of sources. These sources include: yourself, with respect to both online and offline interactions you may have with us, our service providers; the devices you use to access our Site and Platform; and others consistent with this Privacy Notice. For more information, please see the “What Personal Information does Flustr Collect?” section of our Privacy Notice.
We use California Personal Information, identified in each of the above categories, for the business purposes listed below.
We may also use the information we collect for our own or our service providers’ other operational purposes, purposes for which we provide you additional notice, or for purposes compatible with the context in which the California Personal Information was collected. For more information, please see the “How we use your Personal Information” section of our Privacy Notice.
As is common practice among businesses that operate Internet websites and mobile apps, within the last 12 months, we may have shared identifiers, information about the use of our website and apps, and inferences drawn about you to our service providers (for the business purposes described above). To learn more about the categories of third parties with whom we share such information, please see the “How we share your Personal Information” section of our Privacy Notice. We may share California Personal Information with trusted providers to perform payment functions, offer collaborative workspaces, or provider other business functions.
When we disclose Personal Information for a business purpose, we execute a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to keep Personal Information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract.
If you are a California resident, you have certain rights related to your California Personal Information. You may exercise these rights free of charge except as otherwise permitted under applicable law.
As discussed above, the CCPA does not apply to information we obtain, use, or share in connection with certain business-to-business transactions. We will, however, continue to evaluate our business-to-business activities and update our Privacy Notice consistent with California laws and regulations, where applicable.
Right to Access/Know. You may request that we disclose to you:
Right to Delete Personal Information. You have the right to request that we delete and direct our service providers to delete California Personal Information about you which we have collected from you. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
Right to Opt-Out. The CCPA provides you with the right to opt out of the disclosure of Personal Information about you for consideration.
Right to Non-Discrimination. Subject to applicable law, we may not discriminate against you because of your exercise of any of the above rights, or any other rights under the CCPA. This means that we may not deny you goods or Platform, charge you different prices or rates for Platform, or provide you with a different level or quality of Platform (or suggest that we will do so), in response to a request made under the CCPA.
You, or someone you authorize, may request to exercise these rights by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that we are not responsible for notices that are not labelled or sent properly, or that do not have complete information. If applicable, we will provide you with information on how to submit the request or remedy any deficiencies with the request. Responses to your CCPA request will be delivered in the same manner that we received it.
Residents of the State of California may also request a list of all third parties to whom we have disclosed certain Personal Information (as defined by California law) during the preceding year for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident and would like such a list, please contact us via the Contact Information section provided below.
As required under applicable law, please note that we may take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to information or acting on your request to exercise your rights. You must provide us with enough information to allow us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected California Personal Information, or an authorized representative, and describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. Please include the statement “Attention: California Privacy Rights Request” in the subject line and body of your written request. We may limit our response to your exercise of the above rights as permitted under applicable law. We will review each request carefully and respond accordingly within the timeframe established by the CCPA.
Under California law, you may designate an authorized agent to make a CCPA request for California Personal Information on your behalf. To designate an authorized agent to act on your behalf, you must provide the agent with signed permission to do so, verify your identity with us directly, and confirm you authorized the agent to submit the request.
