This Privacy Notice for California Residents (“CCPA Notice”) supplements the information contained in the Privacy Notice and applies solely to all visitors, users and others who reside in the State of California (“Consumers”). We have created this CCPA Notice in order to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”).
A number of statutory exceptions apply under the CCPA and to this CCPA Notice, meaning that the following information is currently excluded from the scope of this CCPA Notice:
How we collect, use and disclose personal information about our employees, contractors and job applicants who are California residents is addressed in a separate notice and therefore outside the scope of this CCPA Notice.
In addition, personal information does not include:
Consumers who have a visual disability may be able to use a screen reader or other text-to-speech or text-to-Braille tool to review the contents of this notice.
Below are the categories of personal information (as listed in the CCPA) that we have collected about Consumers in the preceding 12 months and, for each category of personal information collected, the categories of sources from which that information was collected and the business or commercial purposes for which the information was collected.
Jobtrees will not collect additional categories of personal information or use the personal information we collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing you notice.
Jobtrees may disclose your personal information as explained in more detail above.
Disclosures of Personal Information for a Business Purpose
In the preceding twelve (12) months, Jobtrees has disclosed the following categories of personal information for a business purpose:
B. Categories of personal information described in subdivision (e) of Section 1798.80
F. Internet or another similar network activity
G. Geolocation data
I. professional or employment-related information
K. Inferences drawn from other personal information
Sales of Personal Information
In the preceding twelve (12) months, Jobtrees has not sold (as defined in the CCPA) your personal information.
The CCPA provides Consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information, provided that we are able to verify their identities as explained in this section.
You have the right to request that Jobtrees disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive your request and verify your identity (see Exercising Your Rights), we will disclose to you:
Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that Jobtrees delete your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive your request and verify your identity (see Exercising Your Rights), 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) for certain reasons as permitted and set forth in the CCPA.
Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable Consumer request related to your personal information.
An authorized agent is a natural person, or a business entity registered with the Secretary of State that a Consumer has authorized to act on his or her behalf. When a Consumer uses an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete, Jobtrees may require that the Consumer provide the authorized agent written permission to do so and verify their own identity directly with Jobtrees, unless the Consumer has provided the authorized agent with a valid power of attorney. Jobtrees may deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by the Consumer to act on his or her behalf.
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable Consumer request to us by either:
You may only make a verifiable Consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable Consumer request must:
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. Please note that the methods for verification are set forth in the CCPA, which also requires us to consider a number of factors, such as type, sensitivity and value of the personal information or risk of harm posed by unauthorized access or deletion, on a case-by-case basis.
We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable Consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
Response Timing and Format
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable Consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of the verifiable Consumer’s request. If applicable, our response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable Consumer request unless it 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.
You may not be discriminated against because you exercise any of your rights under the CCPA.
If you have any questions regarding this CCPA Notice, please contact Jobtrees here:
As of the date of last update and review of this Privacy Notice, we have no reason to believe that we have collected, disclosed, sold or otherwise processed the personal information of more than 10 million Consumers in the preceding calendar year.
