California law permits residents of California to request certain details about how their information is shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please contact us at Campaign Support.
California Business & Professions Code Section 22575(b) (as amended effective January 1, 2014) provides that California residents are entitled to know how the Campaign responds to “Do Not Track” browser settings. The Campaign does not currently take actions to respond to Do Not Track signals because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a standard once one is created.
Pursuant to the California Shine the Light Law (Cal. Civil Code Section 1798.83), California residents have the right to request from a business, with whom the California resident has an established business relationship, certain information with respect to the types of personal information the business shares with third parties for direct marketing purposes by such third party and the identities of the third parties with whom the business has shared such information during the immediately preceding calendar year.
Although, as a non-profit with fewer than 20 employees, the Campaign is not subject to the California Shine the Light Law, any future disclosures to services providers will strive to be consistent, however, with the spirit of the Shine the Light Law. In the future, we may share your personal information with service providers as necessary to perform a campaign business purpose, including fundraising, publicity, sponsorships, e-commerce or other campaign related activities, and in a manner consistent with applicable law.
Further, as a non-profit, we are not a “business” subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) that goes into effect on January 1, 2020. Any disclosures to services providers will strive to be consistent, however, with the spirit of the CCPA (Cal. Civ. Code Section 1798.135 as of its effective date on January 1, 2020).
