Comments and Questions
Appendix A: California Residents
This Appendix A addresses legal obligations and rights laid out in the California Consumer Privacy Act, or CCPA. The CCPA imposes obligations upon businesses that meet the statutory thresholds for doing business in California and affords certain privacy rights to California residents with regard to information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with California consumers or households (“CCPA Covered Information”).
CCPA defines “sale’ very broadly. It includes the sharing of CCPA Covered Information (by a covered business) in exchange for anything of value. According to this broad definition, in the year before the date this policy was issued, Spectrotel may have sold unique and online identifiers, such as IP address, device IDs, or other similar identifiers, collected from your device.
Rights under the CCPA
If you are a California resident and the CCPA does not recognize an exemption that applies to you or your personal information, you have the right to:
- Request we disclose to you free of charge the following information covering the 12 months preceding your request:
- the categories of personal information about you that we collected.
- the categories of sources from which the personal information was collected.
- the purpose for collecting personal information about you.
- the categories of third parties to whom we disclosed personal information about you and the categories of personal information that was disclosed (if applicable) and the purpose for disclosing the personal information about you; and
- the specific pieces of personal information we collected about you.
- Request we delete personal information we collected from you, unless CCPA recognizes an exception; and
- Be free from unlawful discrimination for exercising your rights including providing a different level or quality of services or deny goods or services to you when you exercise your rights under the CCPA.
We aim to fulfill all verified requests within 45 days pursuant to the CCPA. If necessary, extensions for an additional 45 days will be accompanied by an explanation for the delay.
