Your California Rights and Choices

California residents, under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), have specific rights regarding their Personal Data. This section describes how to exercise those rights and our process for handling those requests.  (To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may charge a reasonable fee to comply with your request.)

1.1     Information from our clients

We also acknowledge that you may have rights under the CCPA in connection with the Personal Data we process on behalf of our clients. If Personal Data about you has been processed by us as a service provider on behalf of a client and you wish to exercise any of the rights described below, please provide the name of our client on whose behalf we processed your Personal Data. We will refer your request to that client and will support them to the extent required by applicable law in responding to your request.

1.2     Right to request access to your Personal Data

California residents have the right to request that we disclose what categories of Personal Data that we collect, use, disclose, or sell about them. In particular, California residents may request:

  • the specific pieces of Personal Data that we have collected about you;
  • the categories of Personal Data we have collected about you;
  • the categories of sources from which the Personal Data was collected;
  • the categories of Personal Data about you we disclosed for a business purpose or sold;
  • the categories of third parties to whom the Personal Data was disclosed for a business purpose or sold; and
  • the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling the Personal Data.

 

1.3     Right to request deletion of your Personal Data

You may also request that we delete any Personal Data that we collected from you. However, we may retain Personal Data for certain important purposes, as set out by law. When we receive and verify your request to delete your Personal Data we will proceed to delete the data unless an exception applies.

California residents may exercise their CCPA privacy rights by sending an email to privacyinquiries@saatchi.com or by contacting us at 1-833-983-0087.

For security purposes (and as required under California law), we will verify your identity – in part by requesting certain information from you – when you request to exercise your California privacy rights.  For instance, if you request categories or specific pieces of Personal Data we have collected about you, you may need to confirm your possession of an identifier (such as an email address) or to provide a piece of identification that confirms you are the person you claim to be.

Nevada law (NRS 603A.340) requires each business to establish a designated request address where Nevada consumers may submit requests directing the business not to sell certain kinds of Personal Data that the business has collected or will collect about the consumer. A sale under Nevada law is the exchange of Personal Data for monetary consideration by the business to a third party for the third party to license or sell the Personal Data to other third parties.
