Your Rights and Choices
The CCPA provides consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your rights and how to exercise them.
As a service provider as defined in CCPA, personal information collected by an employer (a business, as defined in CCPA) and retained in a FOUNDATION database is not subject to a verifiable consumer request, data portability or deletion request through Foundation Software, Inc. Such requests should be directed to the business that collected the information (i.e. the employer).
Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights
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, 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 or selling 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 (“a data portability request”).
- If we disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, a list stating the disclosures and identifying the categories of personal information that each category of recipient obtained.
Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that we delete the personal information that we have collected and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:
- Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
- Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
- Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
- Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
- Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 seq.).
- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
- Calling us at (800) 246-0800
- Visiting https://foundationsoft.com/ccpa-request-for-information/
Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize 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 request twice within a 12-month period.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request. Information provided for a verifiable consumer request is not retained after the completion of the request. Follow-up information may be requested to verify a consumer’s identity.
Response Timing and Format
Verifiable consumer requests will be responded to within 45 days of receipt. If we require an extension (up to 90 days), we will inform you, along with a reason for the extension, through contact information provided in your verifiable consumer request. 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 readily-usable format to provide the data.
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.
Request to Opt in or Opt out
We do not sell your personal information. If, in the future, we anticipate selling your personal information to any party, we will provide you with the means to exercise your opt-out and opt-in rights as required by the CCPA.
