The CCPA provides Users with certain additional rights and information regarding their personal information. This Supplement provides those disclosures and describes those additional rights and explains how such additional rights may be exercised. Please read this Supplement as an expansion of the terms of the Policy set forth above as to Users interacting or doing business with us.
Categories of Personal Information Collected.
Listed below are the categories of personal information that we collect and use in our business for commercial purposes. These categories of data do not all apply at all times or as to all Consumers and often our receipt of this data is based on a Consumer’s voluntary submission of it to us for specific purposes or transactions requested by the Consumer:
A real name, alias, email address or other similar identifiers.
B. Internet or other network activity
Online browsing history or other information relating to a Consumer’s interaction with websites, applications, or advertisements.
C. Order information
Contact information, identification information, financial information, shipping information.
Sale of Personal Information.
The CCPA requires that we disclose if we sell the personal information of Consumers to third parties which do not meet the definition of Service Providers under the CCPA. The common understanding of the term “sell” is to transfer property (in this case, personal information) for monetary consideration (i.e., cash), but under the CCPA, the definition of “sell” includes exchanging data for a business benefit other than cash. We do not sell, disclose, or transfer any Consumer’s personal information to a third party which does not meet the definition of Service Providers under the CCPA.
California Residents’ Rights
We extend the following rights to Users relating to their personal information that we have collected, used, or hold (collectively, “Data Rights”).
When Data Rights Do Not Apply. Data Rights are subject to certain exceptions and limitations based on the specific data processing activities involved or other legal constraints like law enforcement and litigation uses. If any of those exceptions or limitations should apply to a Data Rights request, we will explain in our response why (or the extent to which) we are unable to honour a user request.
Data Rights Described. A User’s rights relating to his or her personal information includes one or more of the following rights if and as applicable to a given request (a “Data Rights Request”).
The Right to Know. A User has a right to request that we disclose certain information to him or her about our collection and use of the User’s personal information over the past 12 months. Upon such a request, after verification of the User’s identity, we will confirm (i) the categories of personal information we have collected about the User, (ii) the categories of sources from which such information was collected, (iii) the business or commercial purpose for our collection, disclosure or use of such data, (iv) the categories of any third parties with which we shared such personal information for a business purpose, and (v) the specific pieces of personal information we have collected about the User.
The Right of Deletion. In some circumstances, a User has the right to request that we delete personal information that we have collected from or about the User. Those circumstances include when (i) the personal information is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or processed; (ii) the User withdraws his or her consent to any consent-based processing such as marketing; and/or (iii) our continued processing of such data violates this Policy or is otherwise unlawful. However, there are exceptions to the right of deletion, including when our retention and processing of such data is reasonably necessary to (A) complete the transaction for which such data was collected, to fulfil the terms of a written warranty or product recall or otherwise perform our contract with the User, (B) provide a product or service requested by the User or take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship, (C) detect security incidents or protect against deceptive, fraudulent or unlawful activity, (D) for internal use reasonably aligned with the User’s expectations under this Policy or applicable law, and/or (E) compliance with a legal obligation.
The Right to Data Portability. In certain circumstances under the Right to Know, a User has the right to access the specific pieces of his or her personal information that we collected from such User, by mail or electronically, and if provided electronically, in a portable, readily useable format to the extent technically feasible. However, this right does not apply where it is outweighed by other lawful needs or when the attempted return of it would adversely affect the rights or interests of others, such as when the personal information cannot be segregated from other protected data.
Right to Opt-Out of the Sale of Personal Information. If and to the extent we are deemed to Sell a User’s personal information to a third party, the User has the right to direct us to stop Selling the User’s personal information to such third parties (the “Right to Opt-Out”). To exercise the Right to Opt-Out, the User may submit a Data Rights Request Form to us invoking such right. The Consumer does not need to create an account with us to exercise his or her Right to Opt-Out. We will only use personal information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the requesting User’s request. A User’s exercise of the Right to Opt-Out will only apply to our disclosures to third parties which are not Service Providers and will not affect our own communications and transactions with our User or communications by our business partners with our Users in connection with our own business activities.
Any Data Rights Request must:
Users do not need to create an account with us to submit a Data Rights Request, but we do consider requests made through a password protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that account. We will only use personal information provided in the request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make it.
We will promptly confirm receipt of any such request (generally within ten 10 days) and endeavour to substantively respond to it after verification within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to another 45 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
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 or as otherwise agreed.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to verifiable Data Rights Requests unless excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.
Authorized Agent: The CCPA allows California consumers to designate an authorized agent to exercise their rights under CCPA. You can designate an authorized agent to submit requests on your behalf. However, we will require written proof of the agent’s permission to do so and verify your identity directly.
Right to Non-Discrimination. You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for the exercise of any your rights.
Should the changes affect processing activities on the basis of the User’s consent, Proto Future shall collect new consent from the User, where required.
