14. DO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS HAVE SPECIFIC PRIVACY RIGHTS?

In Short: Yes, if you are a resident of California, you are granted specific rights regarding access to your personal information.

CCPA Rights

Your CCPA rights are described below. You can make a Request to Know or a Request to Delete under the CCPA by clicking the Privacy Request link at the top of this page.

Right to Know

You have the right to request the following information about the personal information we have collected about you in the past 12 months:

  • the categories and specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you
  • the categories of sources from which we collected the personal information
  • the business and commercial purposes for which we collect personal information
  • the categories of third parties with whom we share the information
  • the categories of personal information about you that we disclosed for a business purpose, and the categories of third parties to whom we disclosed that information for a business purpose We will provide If you make a Request to Know more than twice in a 12-month period, we may require you to pay a small fee for this service.

Right to Delete

You have the right to request that we delete any personal information about you that you have provided to us. We will permanently delete from our records any personal information that is not necessary for our business operations and direct our service providers to do the same.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) 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, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, 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 et. seq.). *Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information's deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research's achievement, if you previously provided informed consent. *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.

Right to Non-Discrimination

If you exercise your CCPA consumer rights:

  • We will not deny goods or services to you
  • We will not charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties
  • We will not provide a different level or quality of goods or services to you

Right to Opt-Out

You have the right to opt out of the sale of your personal information. Career Karma does not sell your information in the conventional sense in exchange for money. However, we use ad networks to serve interest-based ads to our website visitors. To do this, we allow ad networks to collect information about your electronic activity while on our website (such as what products you view or add to your cart). They do this through third party cookies and similar tracking technologies placed on our website. We use this information to advertise to you after you leave our website. We may also share email addresses of customers with third party ad networks for purposes of interest-based advertising. This may be considered a “sale” of information under the CCPA. If you do not want us to provide this information to our advertisers, you may opt out by following this Do Not Sell My Personal Information link.

Request Verification

Before we can respond to any CCPA requests, we will need to verify that you are the consumer who is the subject of the CCPA request. Verification is important for preventing fraudulent requests and identity theft.

The verification process depends on which type of request you make and how you make it. Typically, identity verification will require you to confirm certain information about yourself based on information we have already collected. For example, we will ask you to verify that you have access to the email address we have on file for you that is associated with your name. If we cannot verify your identity based on our records, we cannot fulfill your CCPA request.

For a request that seeks specific personal information, we require a higher level of verification and also ask that you sign a declaration stating that you are the consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request, as required by the CCPA.

In some cases, we may have no reasonable method by which we can verify a consumer’s identity. For example:

  • If a consumer submits a request but we have not collected any personal information about that consumer, we cannot verify the request.
  • If the only data we have collected about a consumer is gathered through website cookies (i.e., the consumer visited our website but had no other interaction with us), we are unable to reasonably associate a requester with any data collected; therefore, we cannot verify the request.
  • If we process the consumer’s information as a service provider to another organization, we are not permitted to respond in a substantive way to that consumer’s CCPA request.

Authorized Agent

A California resident’s authorized agent may submit a Request to Know or a Request to Delete under the CCPA by emailing us at privacy@careerkarma.com. Requests submitted by an authorized agent will still require verification of the person who is the subject of the request in accordance with the process described above. We will also ask for proof that the person who is the subject of the request authorized an agent to submit a privacy request on their behalf. An authorized agent that has power of attorney pursuant to California Probate Code section 4121 to 4130 must submit proof of statutory power of attorney, but consumer verification is not required.

We also make the following disclosures under the CCPA:

Personal Information We Collect

Below are the categories of personal information we collect:

  • Name or alias, email address, telephone number, postal address, IP address, unique identifier (such as cookies and device ID), internet or electronic activity, inferences *If you received a laptop through Reskill America: Passport number, driver’s license number, or other government-issues identifier *If you choose to share photo or videos of yourself: audio information and visual information *If you choose to share your job information: employment-related information *If you choose to share protected class information in our surveys: age, race, color, ancestry, national origin, citizenship, religion or creed, marital status, and veteran or military status
