9. YOUR RIGHTS AND CHOICES RELATED TO PERSONAL INFORMATION AND MARKETING EMAILS

Your special right and choices listed here, if any applies to the jurisdiction you are living. If you are from California, you may have some special rights and choices. 

S.B. Web Technology respects your right to privacy and all the requirements set forth by the applicable laws and jurisdictions. 

Here is the list of actions you can take to manage your personal information and control how our marketing initiative interacts with you.

a. Clicking the “unsubscribe” link on any of our promotional emails:

It will stop us from sending promotional emails to you but won't stop us from sending information about a transaction initiated by you or about non-commercial and non-marketing matters such as any change in the privacy policy. 

b. Managing Privacy Information for California Residents:

According to California Consumer Protection Act, 2018 (CCPA), the residents of California have the right to know in detail what personal information about them is being collected by us and for what purpose we use such information. Especially, we have to:

  • Disclose the categories of your personal information we collect from you and the categories of sources of such personal information. 
  • Disclose you the categories of the sources of personal information we collect from you and any of our commercial or business purpose behind the collection of your personal information.
  • Delete certain personal information about you upon your request. 
  • Disclose you the categories of the third parties associated with us.
  • Disclose information about any financial incentive we offer to you if any.  

Therefore, as a California resident, you can request us to take specific actions about your personal information. Still, you shall collaborate on our services understanding that certain information can be exempted from your requests under California law. Such information is usually critical for us and is used by us to provide important services to you. 

Important notice regarding requests verification and agent submission:

When you make a request to us, we will first take appropriate measures to verify your identity. Such measures may include verifying your identity, name, email, address, and likewise information, and/or forwarding your verification email if necessary.

Furthermore, if you want to assign an agent or third party to send certain requests to us on your behalf, you must give the agent your written permission that must be signed. In such a scenario when your chosen agent makes a request, we shall also verify your identity before running further process.

Generally, one can make us request about three types of information processes. They are:

  • Requesting all the personal information we have about you as permitted by California law. 
  • Requesting information about how we collect, share, and use your personal information. 
  • Requesting to delete the personal information we have about you as permitted by California law.
  • Requesting to opt-out of the sale of your personal information

Thus, if you want to know more about your privacy rights or in case if you want to make a request to us exercising your legal rights under California law, please follow our opt-out policy.

c. Exercising your right to opt-out of the sale of personal information:

We are transparent about the sale of your certain personal information for purposes associated with providing you with offers, promotions, events, and opportunities that may interest you.

Legally, under CCPA. “sale” is defined to mean “selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, a consumer’s personal information to another business or a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration.”

In the context, our legitimate purpose of providing you with tailored advertising and giving you offers/opportunities (as per your interest) via sharing your information to third parties may also be deemed as the “sale” of personal information as per CCPA. Thus, for the reason to opt-out from S.B. Web Technology use of your personal information, we request you to:

Concludingly, we respect California’s initiative to provide privacy options to its residents. We also support CCPA’s principle of preventing discrimination against its residents for applying for their access, deletion, and opt-out rights associated with specific personal information. Adhering to CCPA and related California jurisdiction, we also clarify that we do not knowingly sell personal information of the minors under 16 years of age without proper authorization legally required by the law. 

If you are our employee or job candidate from any jurisdictions, California, or any, you can consult our "Human Resource Privacy Notice (California Employee Privacy Notice)" subsection under our section 17 Appendix.
