YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
On January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) went into effect. The law requires companies to notify California residents about how their data is collected, used, and shared, and in some cases gives them rights to access and delete that data. This section provides Runzheimer’s disclosures as required by the CCPA. These disclosures supplement and incorporate the statements in the other portions of the Privacy Notice. This section applies to all visitors, users, and others who reside in the State of California.
Information We May Collect
Runzheimer collects User information from Users and Clients in order to administer and provide Runzheimer Services to Runzheimer Clients and Users and for the other purposes identified in this Privacy Notice. We may collect the following categories of information, as defined in the CCPA. The examples listed are only illustrative of potential types of data within each category, and Runzheimer does not necessarily collect that data about every individual.
Sources of California Personal Information
We obtain the above categories of personal information from the following categories of sources:
- Directly from you: For instance, you may provide us with information when signing up for an account
- Indirectly from you: For example, we may observe your interactions on our website
- From third parties: For example, your employer may provide us with information related to the services that we provide.
- From publicly available information
Use of California Personal Information
We may use any of the above categories of collected User information to provide services requested from Users or Clients, maintain and improve our services, communicate with Users and Clients about Runzheimer Services and affiliated third-party services, market Runzheimer services, prevent potentially illegal activities, protect the rights and property of Runzheimer and third parties, respond to inquiries of Runzheimer Clients and Users, and for any other purpose to which the User has consented. Our use and disclosure of California Personal Information is more fully described above, in the section entitled “How We Use This Information”.
Sharing California Personal Information
We may disclose your personal information to your employer or to another third party, as more fully described in the section above entitled “Sharing Information). The vast majority of data that Runzheimer collects and discloses to its clients is in its capacity as a service provider, as defined by CCPA. Accordingly, Runzheimer does not “sell” CCPA-covered personal information.
In the past 12 months, Runzheimer has disclosed the following categories of personal information for a business purpose:
- Categories of personal information described in Cal. Civ. Code 1798.80(e)
- Commercial Information
- Internet or other electronic network activity information
In the past 12 months Runzheimer has disclosed personal information to the following categories of third parties:
- Clients (i.e., the users’ employers)
- Service providers
Your rights under the CCPA
The vast majority of the personal information that Runzheimer collects is related to employees, as part of a service that we provide via their employers. Most of the rights provided under the CCPA do not currently apply to employment-related personal information collected from California-based employees, job applicants, contractors, or similar individuals. The CCPA also currently exempts personal information reflecting a written or verbal business-to-business communication from many of its requirements.
Moreover, Runzheimer typically acts as a service provider to its Clients, which are typically employers. The Clients solely determine the purposes and means of processing Clients’ personal information. To the extent that Runzheimer collects or processes CCPA-covered personal information in its capacity as a service provider, requests for access to CCPA-covered data and deletion must be directed to the Runzheimer Client. For instance, if you want to access or delete data collected via Runzheimer, you must contact your employer, which will then work with Runzheimer to process your request.
In the rare instance that the CCPA rights apply to the personal information and Runzheimer does not collect or process data in its capacity as a service provider, you have the following rights:
- Access to Personal Information Collected or Sold and Data Portability: You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see “Exercising Your Rights” section), we will disclose to you:
- The categories of personal information we collected about you;
- The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you;
- Our business or commercial purpose for collecting that personal information;
- The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information;
- The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request;
- If we disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, a separate list disclosing disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.
- Deletion of Personal Information: You have the right to request deletion of personal information. If you wish to do so, please contact us at any method listed below. The right to deletion is subject to certain exceptions, such as if we need the personal information to provide Services or comply with legal obligation.
- No Discrimination: You will not be subject to discrimination for exercising any of your privacy rights.
To exercise any applicable access, data portability, and deletion rights, please submit a verifiable consumer request by: sending an email to email@example.com, calling toll-free +1 (866) 618-5646, or sending mail to Runzheimer International LLC, a subsidiary of Motus Operations, LLC, Two Financial Center, 60 South Street, Boston, MA 02111.
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative, which may include:
- Your name
- Additional information depending upon the type of request and the sensitivity of the information.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We use good faith efforts to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days after its receipt. If we need more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and the needed extension period in writing. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability 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.
You may designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA on your behalf.
The California Shine the Light Law, Cal. Civ. Code Section 1798.83, requires companies to disclose certain information about information shared with third parties that is used for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. These disclosure requirements only apply if Runzheimer were to share personal information with third parties for the third parties to market their own services and products directly to consumers. If you are a California resident, you may request information about the disclosure of your personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, calling +1 (866) 618-5646, or sending mail to Runzheimer International LLC, a subsidiary of Motus Operations, LLC, Two Financial Center, 60 South Street, Boston, MA 02111.
