Supplemental Notice for California Consumers

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) gives California residents the right to know what personal information ECG Management Consultants (ECG) collects about them, including whether it is being sold or disclosed to third parties. The CCPA also grants certain rights to California residents, including the right to delete their personal information (subject to certain exceptions) and the right to prevent ECG from selling their personal information. Companies are prohibited from retaliating or discriminating against consumers for exercising their rights under the CCPA.

All companies need to collect and share consumers’ personal information for everyday business purposes, marketing, and maintenance of the safety, security, and integrity of their websites and other assets, among other reasons. This Supplemental Notice provides the information required under the CCPA and applies to both ECG’s online and offline activities. For more information about how we collect, use, and share information through our websites and online services, please review our ECG Privacy Statement.

If you are a California resident, you have the following rights under the CCPA with respect to your personal information:

Right to Notice

Before or at the time we collect personal information from you, you have the right to receive notice of the personal information to be collected and the purposes for which we use it. This Supplemental Notice is intended to satisfy this requirement.

You also have the right to request that we disclose to you the categories of personal information we have collected about you in the preceding 12 months, along with the categories of sources from which the personal information was collected, the purpose for collecting or selling the personal information, the categories of third parties with whom we shared the personal information, and the categories of third parties with whom we sold the personal information.

Right of Access

You have the right to request that we disclose or provide you with access to the specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you in the preceding 12 months.

Right to Deletion

You have the right to request that we delete the personal information we collect from you. However, in certain situations we are not required to delete your personal information, such as when the information is necessary in order to complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected, to provide a good or service requested by you, to comply with a legal obligation, to engage in research, to secure our websites or other online services, or to otherwise use your personal information internally in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information.

Right to Opt Out of the Sale of Personal Information

ECG has not sold any personal information in the preceding 12 months.

Right Not to Be Subject to Discrimination

You have the right to be free from discrimination or retaliation for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA as described above.

You can exercise your rights by emailing [email protected].

VERIFICATION: We value the security and confidentiality of your personal information. Therefore, if you exercise your right to notice, right of access, or right to deletion, we must first verify your identity to make sure that you are the person about whom we have collected personal information. We verify every request carefully.

You may designate an authorized agent to make a request to access, delete, or opt out of the sale of your information on your behalf. When you use an authorized agent to submit a request for access or deletion, you must provide the authorized agent with written permission to do so, and, in certain circumstances, we may ask you to verify your own identity directly with us. We may deny a request from an authorized agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by you to act on your behalf.
