California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

This notice describes the rights of Californians under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). The CCPA requires businesses like us to provide certain information to our California consumers. We fully describe our practices to all our members and visitors in our Privacy Policy but use this separate notice to ensure that we meet the CCPA’s requirements. This notice contains the following:

  • We Do Not Sell Your Personal Information
  • Your CCPA Rights
  • The CCPA Categories of Personal Information We Share for a “Business Purpose”

1. We Do Not Sell Your Personal Information
The CCPA requires us to disclose whether we sell your personal information. We do not sell your personal information.

2. Your Rights Under the CCPA
The CCPA provides Californians with the following rights:

2.1 Requests for Information
You (or your authorized agent) have the right to request a copy of your personal information. Under the CCPA, you can also request that we disclose how we have collected, used, and shared your personal information over the past 12 months, including the categories of personal information we collected and our purposes for doing so; the categories of sources for that information; the categories of third parties with whom we shared it for a business purpose and our purposes for doing so.

2.2 Your Right to Opt Out of Sales
We do not sell personal information, so we don’t have an opt out option.

2.3 Your Right to Notification
Under the CCPA, a company like Ringler cannot collect new categories of personal information or use them for materially different purposes without first notifying you.

2.4 Nondiscrimination for exercising your CCPA Rights
The CCPA prohibits businesses from discriminating against you for exercising your rights under the law. Such discrimination may include denying services, charging different prices or rates for services, providing a different level or quality of services, or suggesting that you will receive a different level or quality of services as a result of exercising your rights.

2.5 Your Right to Delete Personal Information
You can request that we delete your personal information or that we delete specific information by filling out our form. We honor such requests, unless an exception applies, such as when the information is necessary to complete the transaction or contract for which it was collected or when it is being used to detect, prevent, or investigate security incidents, or comply with laws.

3. The CCPA Categories of Personal Information We Share for a “Business Purpose”
While we do not sell your personal information, we may share it to support our own operational purposes in providing Services to you, as described in our Privacy Policy. These operational purposes, known as “business purposes” under the CCPA, are described below.

3.1 Service Providers and Other Notified Purposes
We may share personal information with Service Providers, as defined by the CCPA, in order to have them perform services specified by a written contract or with others for a notified purpose permitted by the CCPA (e.g., to respond to law enforcement requests)

3.2 Security Purposes
In order to secure our Services, including to detect, prevent and investigate security incidents or violations of our Professional Community Policies or applicable laws, we may share personal information with our partners, service providers, law enforcement and related companies.
