- The right to know or request that a business disclose what Personal Information of yours that it collects, uses, discloses and sells.
- The right to request that a business delete Visitor Personal Information collected or maintained by the business.
- The right to opt-out of the sale or transfer of Visitor Personal Information for consideration by a business (aka “Do Not Sell My Information”).
- The right not to receive discriminatory or differentiated treatment by a business because you exercised a right conferred by the CCPA.
To submit a right to know, delete or opt-out (aka Do Not Sell My Information) request regarding Visitor Personal Information, click here. You may only make a verifiable customer request for access twice within a 12-month period. We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
If you submit a right to know or deletion request, HR Cloud will attempt to verify your identity with a reasonably high degree of certainty. HR Cloud will require you to sign a declaration attesting to your identity. Please see below for information on how to submit an authorized request on another’s behalf. If HR Cloud cannot verify your identity it will, in accordance with its obligations under the CCPA, decline to comply with your request.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (for a maximum total of 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless the request is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request. Alternatively, we may decline to respond to the request and notify you of our reason for doing so.
