Privacy Notice for California Residents

This “Privacy Notice for California Residents” section only applies to California residents. This notice describes how we collect, use and disclose your personal information (as defined in the CCPA), and your rights with respect to that personal information.

Information We Collect

Clauses 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4 describe the personal information we may collect from you, including the categories of sources of that information. We collect the information for the purposes of described in section 3.1. We share this information as described in section 3.5. We will retain your personal information as set forth in section 3.6. For the purposes of this clause 7, we may use the terms “personal information” and “Personal Data” interchangeably.

Your Rights

The CCPA provides California residents with specific rights to request information about Previse’s collection, use and disclosure of your personal information over the prior twelve (12) months, and ask that we provide you with the following information:

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.

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 from which we collect personal information;

purpose for collecting, using or selling personal information;

the categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information;

the specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (known as “data portability request”); and

if applicable, categories of personal information sold about you and the categories of third parties to which the personal information was sold.

Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you 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 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; or

comply with a legal obligation.

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 at: help@previ.se. Only you, or someone legally authorized 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 twice within a 12-month period.

The verifiable consumer request must:

provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative, which may include: First Name, Last Name, Email used to register with Previse, and Phone Number; and

describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

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. However, we do consider requests made through your password protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

Sensitive personal information

We do not use or disclose sensitive personal information except for purposes for which you do not have a right to limit the use and disclosure of sensitive personal information under the CCPA. For example, we may use Sensitive personal information to provide you products or services you have requested. “Sensitive personal information” includes Social Security number, government-issued identification, bank account and routing numbers, credit and debit card information, voice identification and Photo IDs or Precise Geolocation (each capitalized terms have the meanings ascribed to them under the CCPA).

Please refer to section 5 above to understand the categories of personal data that we process and disclose to third parties, the purposes for which we process personal data, and the categories of third parties that we disclose personal data. As residents in a State subject to the U.S. Data Protection Laws, you may be entitled to the same rights described in section 3.6 and section 8.2. However, these rights are not absolute, and we may decline your request as permitted by the applicable U.S. Data Protection Laws.
