The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) requires businesses that collect personal information from California residents to make certain additional disclosures. The CCPA applies to you if you reside in the State of California. The CCPA provides California residents with the following rights:

As described in detail in Section 1 “Personal Information Collected” above we may collect the following categories of information about you through you visiting our Site or the Products:
We care about the security of your personal information and take reasonable and appropriate technical and organizational measures designed to prevent loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction of personal information – remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. No security system is impenetrable, and we cannot guarantee the security of our systems or your information. For this reason, you should be mindful of the information you provide to us.
If you are located in the European Economic Area (EEA), Cequence Security, Inc. is the data controller of your information. Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information in Section 5 “Use of Personal Information” will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. However, we will normally collect personal information only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information to perform under an agreement with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you.
If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform under an agreement with you, we will indicate this at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as the possible consequences, if any, if you do not provide your personal information). Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of a third party), we will indicate to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.
If you have questions about the legal basis for processing or want to find out more, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We retain personal information as long as necessary for the purposes for which the personal information is used and for longer periods as necessary for us to comply with applicable law. For example, we retain your account information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with Products you have requested or authorized, including maintaining and improving the performance of the Products and protecting system security. We also retain personal information as needed to maintain appropriate business and financial records, protect our legal interests, resolve disputes, or comply with legal or regulatory requirements. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it, or if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will store your personal information using appropriate security measures and take appropriate steps designed to isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

If we become aware that we have collected personal information from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.
