8.2 Rights under the CCPA. The CCPA provides California Consumers with additional rights regarding Personal Information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly with a particular consumer or household. The categories of Personal Information we collect are generally described hereinabove but differ for individual consumers depending on the Services used by such consumers. Under the CCPA, qualifying California Consumers may have the following rights:
8.2.1 Right to Know and Right to Delete. A California Consumer has the right to request that we disclose what Personal Information we collect, use, disclose and sell. A California consumer also has the right to submit requests to delete Personal Information. When we receive a request to know or delete from a California consumer, we will confirm receipt of the request within a reasonable time, in our sole discretion, and provide information about how we will process the request, including our verification process. We will respond to such requests as required under the applicable law.
8.2.2 Right for Disclosure of Information. A California consumer may also submit requests that we disclose specific types or categories of Personal Information that we collect. Under certain circumstances, we will not provide such information, including where the disclosure creates a substantial, articulable and unreasonable risk to the security of that Personal Information, Customers’ account with us, or the security of our systems or networks. We also will not disclose California Consumers’ social security numbers, driver’s license numbers or other government-issued identification numbers, financial account numbers, any health insurance or medical identification numbers, or account passwords and security questions and answers. In the event that we receive requests from a California consumer who has a relationship with you (for example, from an employee or client of a customer), we will inform you.
8.3 Submitting Requests. If you are a California consumer and would like to make any requests under the CCPA, please direct them to the communication channels provided hereinabove.
8.4 Designated Agent. You may designate an agent to make a request on your behalf. That agent must have access to your account in order for us to verify the request. You may make such a designation by providing the agent with written permission to act on your behalf. We will require the agent to provide proof of that written permission. As permitted by law, we may require you to verify your own identity in response to a request, even if you choose to use an agent.
8.5 Non-Discrimination. Profasee will never discriminate against you, including by denying or providing a different level or quality of services should you choose to exercise your options under the CCPA.
9.2 All processing of Personal Information of EEA Residents is performed by us in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679) of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of natural persons regarding the processing of Personal Information and on the free movement of such data (“GDPR”).
9.3 Under the GDPR, we are a processor or co-processor of the Personal Information of EEA Residents. Our purpose for collecting and processing Personal Information from or about EEA Residents is to authenticate contacts and to provide our Services to our customers, who may be controllers or processors of Personal Information about EEA Residents. The legal basis for collecting Personal Information is to fulfill these purposes, including contracts between us and those for whom we provide Services. We also rely on your consent to use our Services, including receiving communications regarding our Resources.
9.4 We will not share the Personal Information that we obtain about residents of the EEA with third parties except as described above regarding Personal Information.
9.5 Under the GDPR EEA Residents may also have the right to: obtain confirmation that we hold Personal Information about the resident, request access to and receive information about the Personal Information we maintain about the resident, receive copies of the Personal Information we maintain about the resident, update and correct inaccuracies in Personal Information, object to the continued processing of Personal Information, and have the Personal Information blocked, anonymized or deleted, as appropriate. The right to access Personal Information may be limited in some circumstances by local law. We are also limited by the terms of our agreements with our customers in responding to such requests and may refer any requests received from EEA Residents to our Customers.
9.6 If you qualify, in order to exercise these rights, please contact us through one of the channels of communication provided hereinabove should you have any queries.
