In order for you to use our Site, we need to collect and process certain types of personal information. We define personal information as information about you that is personally identifiable to you, such as your contact information (e.g., name, email address, or telephone number), and any other non-public information that is associated with such information (collectively, “Personal Information”). It does not include aggregate information where your identity had been removed, deidentified, or made anonymous. Depending on your use of our Site, this may include:
Sponsor Network may use the Personal Information we collect for the following purposes:
SponsorNetwork will never sell or rent any of your Personal Information, and we will never share your Personal Information publicly without your consent. However, we may share any and all of your information in the following instances:
We take the security of your Personal Information seriously and follow industry-standard practices to protect the data we collect and process. SponsorNetwork has therefore put in place commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the personal information that SponsorNetwork collects. Access to Personal Information will be restricted to our authorized personnel who require the information in order to perform their duties properly. In addition, access will be limited to only that information that is strictly necessary for the performance of those duties.
Remember, the safety and security of your information also depends on you. You must take precautions to protect the security of any personally identifiable information that you may transmit over any public or untrusted network by using encryption and other techniques to prevent unauthorized persons from intercepting or receiving any personally identifiable information. You are responsible for the security of your information when using unencrypted, open access, public or otherwise unsecured networks. No method of transmission over the internet or electronic storage is completely secure, so SponsorNetwork cannot guarantee its absolute security.
In the event you disclose any of your Personal Information in a public forum, the information in that disclosure will be treated as public, we will not take any steps to protect, secure, or delete that disclosure, and you should not have any expectation of privacy or confidentiality with regards to that disclosure.
You may modify, change, or correct your Personal Information by contacting us at email@example.com.
In accordance with the obligations under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), we set forth the following additional notices and policies with respect to the residents of California who use the Service.
The following are categories of Personal Information collected from consumers, the categories of sources from which the information was collected, and the business purpose for which the information was collected and disclosed within the last twelve (12) months. We only make these business purpose disclosures under written contracts that describe the purposes, require the recipient to keep the personal information confidential, and prohibit using the disclosed information for any purpose except performing the contract. Note that SponsorNetwork DOES NOT SELL Your Personal Information.
Right to Know/Access Personal Information: California residents have the right to request access to categories of Personal Information collected about you within the last 12 months and information regarding the source of that information, the business or commercial purposes for which we collect it, and the third parties and service providers with whom we share it. If we sold or disclosed your Personal Information for a business purpose, then California residents have the right to two separate lists disclosing (1) the sales, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient purchased, and (2) disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained. Lastly, California residents have the right to specific piece of personal information we collected, or a data portability request.
Right to Request Deletion of Personal Information: Subject to certain exceptions under Cal. Civ. Code §1798.105(c) and (d), California residents have the right to, at no charge, request 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 delete or deidentify personal information not subject to an exception from our records and will direct our service providers to take similar action.
Right to Opt Out of Sale of Personal Information: Under the CCPA, California residents have the right to opt-out of our sale of their Personal Information. SponsorNetwork does NOT SELL any personal information to another business or a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration.
Right to Non-discrimination: The CCPA prohibits discrimination against California residents for exercising their rights under the CCPA. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not (a) deny you goods or services, (b) charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties, (c) provide you a different level or quality of goods or services, or (d) suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
How to Submit a Request to Exercise Your Rights
You may submit a request to exercise your rights as listed above by contacting us in any of the following manners:
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a request to know or delete related to your personal information. (See Authorized Agent section below). You may also make a request as an Authorized Agent to know or delete on behalf of your child by following the same instructions listed above.
Any request received from a California resident will be responded to as required by law. You may only submit a request to know twice within a 12 month period.
Persons with disabilities may obtain this notice in alternative format upon request by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to process a request to exercise a California residents’ rights, we must verify your request. We do this by asking you to provide personal identifiers we can match against information we may have collected from you previously; and by confirming your request using the email or telephone account stated in the request.
California Residents may authorize another individual or a business registered with the California Secretary of State, called an authorized agent, to make requests on your behalf. We require that you and the individual complete affidavits in order to verify the identity of the authorized agent and confirm that you have authorized them to act on your behalf.
We will confirm receipt of your request within 10 business days. If you do not receive a confirmation with the 10-day timeframe, please contact us at email@example.com. We endeavor to substantively respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to another 45 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your 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 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, specifically by email.
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.
A business may offer financial incentives for the collection and use of California residents' personal information, provided it is not unjust, unreasonable, coercive or usurious, and is made available in compliance with applicable transparency, informed consent, and opt-out requirements. California residents may not be included in such incentives without their prior informed opt-in consent. SponsorNetwork DOES NOT offer any rewards programs, incentives or price differences for the collection or sharing of data at this time.
