FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
AnswerNet’s Compliance with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
The following section is intended to comply with the requirements of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and should be read to supplement and enhance the above sections. Residents of California have specific rights with respect to their personal information, which are set forth below. AnswerNet is committed to adhering to the CCPA and protecting the personal information of consumers that interact with us through our customers/clients. From time to time, AnswerNet does obtain consumers’ personal information incidental to the work we perform for our customers/clients. AnswerNet does not sell, trade, share, transfer, or disclose consumers’ personal information, for any purpose, including but not limited to direct marketing. AnswerNet only possesses consumers’ personal information for the purposes determined by AnswerNet’s customers/client, incidental to the work AnswerNet performs for those customers/clients as a third-party business process outsourcing company.
CCPA Right to Request Information Regarding Disclosure to Third Parties
Notwithstanding that AnswerNet does not sell, trade, share, transfer, or disclose consumers’ personal information, for any purpose, including but not limited to direct marketing, once per year California consumers may request information about our disclosure of personal information to third parties or affiliate for direct marketing purposes. Please email us at email@example.com to make such a request. Please allow up to 30 days for us to process and respond to your request.
CCPA Right to Know
Up to two (2) times in a 12-month period, free of charge, subject to the limitations in the CCPA, California consumers may request a list of the categories of personal information AnswerNet has collected about them, the categories of sources from which such information was collected, the business purpose for collecting or selling the such information, and the categories of third parties to whom such information was disclosed or sold. California consumers may also request that we provide a copy of the specific pieces of personal information we have collected about them in the past 12 months in a machine-readable format.

CCPA Right to Delete
California consumers may make a request for AnswerNet to delete any personal information we have collected from them. The CCPA exempts certain information from deletion, i.e. information necessary for security and fraud detection. We also may keep information needed to provide you goods or services. For example, if you ask us to delete your data but continue providing you services through our customer/client with whom you have a business relationship, we will keep the information we need to continue providing you such services. When we respond to your request to delete, if applicable, we will explain what information we have retained and why we have such information. Because the CCPA does not consider anonymized or pseudonymized information to be “personal information,” and we are permitted to “delete” your information by anonymizing or pseudonymizing it.
To make a request to know or delete personal information, California consumers may:
In response to any request, and before releasing any data, AnswerNet will take reasonable steps to verify the identity of the requestor, including seeking a physical address and/or email address. If you so wish, you may designate an authorized representative to make a CCPA request; however, we will require verification of your authorization of the representative and their request. Unless otherwise required under the CCPA, your authorized representative must provide your contact details, and we will contact you directly to confirm that your authorization of the representative. Once you confirm, we will promptly respond to the rights request.
