Specific considerations for residents of, and businesses within, the State of California.
The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) is a new data privacy law that establishes various rights for California state residents. The law applies to companies that do business in California and meet one of several criteria. CCPA requires giving residents the right to opt out of the “sale” of their “personal information” (as the law defines those terms), with the opt-out offered via a prominent “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link on the “selling” party’s homepage. CCPA does recognize certain exceptions to the definition of “sale,” such that not all transfers of personal information are “sales.” For example, transferring personal information to a “service provider” under the law is not a sale.
Under the terms of the CCPA, Creative Direct Marketing Group, CDMG Inc. is a Service Provider, and already has numerous safeguards in place for protecting consumer information across all of our products. We do not have any product offerings that establish a direct relationship between us and any consumers. We act exclusively as a Service Provider to facilitate the interactions between our business clients, and their consumers/customers.
CCPA provides five general “rights’ for the personal information for California consumers, including:
- To know whether and to whom their personal information is sold/disclosed, and to opt-out of its sale – As a service provider, we collect this information on behalf of, and share with, the business with whom you are already interacting, either through a response to an online ad, or in subsequent communication.
- To access their personal information that has been collected – Your consumer information exists in the systems of other businesses with whom you interacted. We have copies of that information in order to facilitate the interactions between you and the business, in case there is a communication problem sending the data to/from the business, and for analytics. The “System of Record” for your data exists at the businesses with whom you interacted.
- To have a business delete their personal information – As a California consumer, if you make a request to delete information from one of our clients or other client businesses, after they validate your identity and/or the relationship you have with an agent acting on your behalf, that business will be able to remove any information on our systems. Since our products are tools that our clients use, they generally have control over all the data in our systems, and in the instances where they do not have direct control to remove customer information, we will be providing tools and services to facilitate their requests.
- To not be discriminated against for exercising their rights under the Act (i.e. to receive equal service and pricing) – We are a Service Provider, with no direct relationship with any consumer, therefore it is impossible for us to discriminate in this way. We will comply with and facilitate all deletion requests from our Business customers.
For any current or previous clients of Creative Direct Marketing Group, CDMG Inc., to request the deletion of one of your consumers/customers or additional information on the data we have collected, please message us at email@example.com. As we do not have the direct relationship with our client’s consumers/customers, it is the client’s responsibility to verify the identity of the person(s) requesting deletion.
