B.  California Privacy Rights
If you are a resident of California, the CCPA provides you with the following rights regarding your personal information: 

Right to Know and Access Your Information: You have the right to request information about our collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information over the past twelve (12) months concerning: 

  • The specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you
  • The categories of personal information that we have collected about you
  • The categories of sources from which we collected the personal information
  • The purpose for collecting or selling the personal information
  • The categories of personal information that we have disclosed about you, the purpose for disclosing such personal information and the categories of third parties with whom we disclosed such personal information
  • The categories of personal information that we have sold about you, as well as the categories of third parties to whom we sold such personal information

Please note that we may still use aggregated and de-identified personal information that does not identify you or any individual.

Right to Deletion: You have the right to request that we delete certain personal information about you that we have collected about you. We may not be able to fulfill your request if we (or our service providers) need to retain your personal information for certain authorized purposes, such as to provide a good or service you requested, to secure our services, to protect against fraud, to improve our services, or to comply with or exercise rights under applicable law.

Right to Non-Discrimination: You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment against you (e.g., through denying goods or services, charging different rates for goods or services, or providing a different level or quality of goods or services) for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA.

How to Exercise Your Access and Deletion Rights. To exercise your access and deletion rights as described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request by contacting us at privacy@buildout.com.

Verifiable Consumer Requests. Only you, or your agent registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a request related to your personal information. You may only make a request for access to your personal information twice within a 12-month period. We may need to verify your identity (and if applicable, your agent’s authority to make the request on your behalf) before we are able to process your request. We will ask you to provide certain information to verify your identity: name, email address, and telephone number. If an authorized agent makes the request on your behalf, then (i) we will need proof that you have provided the agent with power of attorney; (ii) you must provide the agent with signed permission to submit a request to access or delete; (iii) you must verify your identity directly with us; or (iv) you must confirm with us that you provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request.

You must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information. During the verification process, we will try to match the information you provided against known information in our databases. If we still need additional information, we also may contact you or your authorized agent by email or telephone number to ask you additional questions about the services we last provided to you, so that we can match your identity with the personal information we have about you. In some instances, we may ask you to declare under penalty of perjury that you are a consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request. 

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. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

If we cannot verify your identity or sufficiently differentiate you from another consumer, or cannot confirm an agent’s authority to act on your behalf, we are not required to fulfill your request.

Your request must contain sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate and respond to it, otherwise we may not be able to respond to it. 

Response Timing and Format. We attempt to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days after we receive it. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing within 45 days after we receive your initial request. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period immediately preceding the date we receive the verifiable consumer request. The response we provide will also provide the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For access requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Complaints. In compliance with the CCPA, we commit to resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection or use of your personal information. We ask that you kindly contact us at privacy@buildout.com, so that we have an opportunity to resolve your complaint.

Do Not Track.  Some internet browsers – like Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari – include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals.  Since uniform signals have not been adopted, we do not currently process or respond to “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals.

California’s Shine the Light law. California residents with an established business relationship with us can request information once a year about sharing their personal information with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident and would like to request more information under the California Shine the Light law, you can email us at privacy@buildout.com.

B.  California Privacy Rights
If you are a resident of California, the CCPA provides you with the following rights regarding your personal information: 

Right to Know and Access Your Information: You have the right to request information about our collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information over the past twelve (12) months concerning: 

  • The specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you
  • The categories of personal information that we have collected about you
  • The categories of sources from which we collected the personal information
  • The purpose for collecting or selling the personal information
  • The categories of personal information that we have disclosed about you, the purpose for disclosing such personal information and the categories of third parties with whom we disclosed such personal information
  • The categories of personal information that we have sold about you, as well as the categories of third parties to whom we sold such personal information

Please note that we may still use aggregated and de-identified personal information that does not identify you or any individual.

Right to Deletion: You have the right to request that we delete certain personal information about you that we have collected about you. We may not be able to fulfill your request if we (or our service providers) need to retain your personal information for certain authorized purposes, such as to provide a good or service you requested, to secure our services, to protect against fraud, to improve our services, or to comply with or exercise rights under applicable law.

Right to Non-Discrimination: You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment against you (e.g., through denying goods or services, charging different rates for goods or services, or providing a different level or quality of goods or services) for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA.

How to Exercise Your Access and Deletion Rights. To exercise your access and deletion rights as described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request by contacting us at privacy@buildout.com.

Verifiable Consumer Requests. Only you, or your agent registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a request related to your personal information. You may only make a request for access to your personal information twice within a 12-month period. We may need to verify your identity (and if applicable, your agent’s authority to make the request on your behalf) before we are able to process your request. We will ask you to provide certain information to verify your identity: name, email address, and telephone number. If an authorized agent makes the request on your behalf, then (i) we will need proof that you have provided the agent with power of attorney; (ii) you must provide the agent with signed permission to submit a request to access or delete; (iii) you must verify your identity directly with us; or (iv) you must confirm with us that you provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request.

You must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information. During the verification process, we will try to match the information you provided against known information in our databases. If we still need additional information, we also may contact you or your authorized agent by email or telephone number to ask you additional questions about the services we last provided to you, so that we can match your identity with the personal information we have about you. In some instances, we may ask you to declare under penalty of perjury that you are a consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request. 

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. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

If we cannot verify your identity or sufficiently differentiate you from another consumer, or cannot confirm an agent’s authority to act on your behalf, we are not required to fulfill your request.

Your request must contain sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate and respond to it, otherwise we may not be able to respond to it. 

Response Timing and Format. We attempt to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days after we receive it. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing within 45 days after we receive your initial request. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period immediately preceding the date we receive the verifiable consumer request. The response we provide will also provide the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For access requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Complaints. In compliance with the CCPA, we commit to resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection or use of your personal information. We ask that you kindly contact us at privacy@buildout.com, so that we have an opportunity to resolve your complaint.

Do Not Track.  Some internet browsers – like Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari – include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals.  Since uniform signals have not been adopted, we do not currently process or respond to “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals.

California’s Shine the Light law. California residents with an established business relationship with us can request information once a year about sharing their personal information with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident and would like to request more information under the California Shine the Light law, you can email us at privacy@buildout.com.
