This California Residents Notice applies to the personal information we collect, both online and offline, about California consumers, including personal information that we collect:
As used in this California Residents Notice, “personal information” means any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California resident or household; it does not include publicly available information made lawfully available by state or federal governments or anonymised information that cannot reasonably identify, relate to, describe, be capable of being associated with, or be linked directly or indirectly to a particular individual.
A list of what is defined under the CCPA as personal information includes:
Our collection, use and disclosure of personal information about a California resident will vary depending upon the circumstances and nature of our interactions or relationship with such resident. Pursuant to the CCPA, we may collect and disclose for a business purpose the following categories of personal information (as defined by the CCPA).
We may collect the above categories of personal information directly from you, automatically about your use of our Websites, and from third parties such as clients of our legal services, government and public entities, public records, data aggregators and resellers, parties and related parties in litigation matters and others.
We use these categories of personal information we collect to provide our legal and other Services (See the ‘HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION’ section above for more information)
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) provides California residents with five core rights to data privacy and autonomy, and an additional private right of action of compensation in the event of data breaches:
We are required to notify California residents, at or before the point of collection of their personal information, the categories of personal information collected and the purposes for which such information is used.
California residents have the right to request, at no charge, deletion of their personal information that we have collected about them and to have such personal information deleted, except where an exemption applies. We will respond to verifiable requests received from California residents as required by law.
California residents have the right to request and, subject to certain exemptions, receive a copy of the specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about them in the prior 12 months and to have this delivered, free of charge, either (a) by mail or (b) electronically in a portable and, to the extent technically feasible, readily useable format that allows the individual to transmit this information to another entity without hindrance.
California residents have the right to opt-out of our sale of their personal information. Further businesses may not knowingly sell personal information about minors under 16 years old without prior express consent.
We do not offer any such incentives at this time.
