We may choose or be required by law to provide different or additional disclosures, relating to the processing of Personal information (as defined below) about residents of certain countries, regions or states. Please refer below for disclosures that may be applicable to you:
When we use the term “Personal Information” in this Privacy Notice, we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, to an individual. It does not include aggregated or deidentified information that is maintained in a form that is not reasonably capable of being associated with or linked to an individual.
Sometimes we collect Personal Information automatically when an individual interacts with our Services and sometimes we collect Personal Information directly from an individual. At times, we may collect Personal Information about an individual from other sources and third parties.

Individuals under the age of 13 should not use our Site or other Services, or otherwise provide us with any Personal Information either directly or by other means. If a child under the age of 13 has provided Personal Information to us, we encourage the child’s parent or guardian to contact us to request that we remove the Personal Information from our systems.

Effective Date: June 14, 2021
This California Privacy Notice (this “CA Notice”) supplements the information contained in our Privacy Notice and applies solely to California residents (“consumers” or “you”). This CA Notice describes how Edifecs, Inc. (“Edifecs”, “we”, “us” or “our”) collects, uses, discloses, and otherwise processes personal information of individual residents of the State of California, either online or offline, within the scope of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (the “CCPA”). Unless otherwise expressly stated, all terms in this CA Notice have the same meaning as defined in our Privacy Notice or as otherwise defined in the CCPA.
When we use the term “personal information” in this CA Notice, we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. This CA Notice does not apply to personal information we collect when we are acting as a “service provider” to process information pursuant to a contract with one of our business customers.
For the purposes of this CA Notice, personal information does not include:
We collect personal information from and about you for a variety of purposes. For example, we use personal information to provide you with information about our products and services, to provide our products and services to our customers, for the proper administration of our business, to improve our products and services for our customers, to protect the safety and integrity of our business, and to comply with legal obligations.
To learn more about the types of personal information we collect and the purposes for which we use this information, please refer to the “Our Collection of Personal Information” and the “Our Use of Personal Information” sections of our Privacy Notice.
In the last 12 months, we have collected the following categories of personal information:
We collect this information from the following sources: directly from you, from our business partners and affiliates, from your browser or device when you visit our Site or use our Services, and from third parties that you permit to share information with us.
The categories of third parties to whom we disclose your personal information for a business purpose may include: (i) other brands and affiliates in our family of companies; (ii) our service providers and advisors; (iii) marketing and strategic partners; (iv) promotional partners; (v) ad networks and advertising partners; (vi) analytics providers; and (vii) social networks.
In the previous 12 months, we have disclosed the following categories of personal information to third parties for a business purpose: Identifiers, California Customer Records, Commercial Information, Internet/Network Information, Geolocation Data, Sensory Information, Other Personal Information and Inferences.
We do not sell personal information.
As a California resident, you may be able to exercise the following rights in relation to the personal information about you that we have collected (subject to certain limitations at law):
|The Right to Know|
You have the right to request any or all of the following information relating to your personal information we have collected and disclosed in the last 12 months, upon verification of your identity:
|The Right to Request Deletion||You have the right to request the deletion of personal information we have collected from you, subject to certain exceptions.|
|The Right to Opt Out of Personal Information Sales||You have the right to direct us not to sell personal information we have collected about you to third parties now or in the future.|
|The Right to Non-Discrimination|
You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment for exercising these rights.
However, please note that if the exercise of these rights limits our ability to process personal information (such as in the case of a deletion request), we may no longer be able to provide you our products and services or engage with you in the same manner.
To exercise your consumer rights, please submit a request by:
Before processing your request, we will need to verify your identity and confirm you are a resident of the State of California. In order to verify your identity, we will generally either require the successful authentication of your account, or the matching of sufficient information you provide us to the information we maintain about you in our systems. This process may require us to request additional personal information from you, including, but not limited to, your name, email address, phone number, company name, and/or date of last interaction with Edifecs.
In certain circumstances, we may decline a request to exercise the rights described above, particularly where we are unable to verify your identity or locate your information in our systems. If we are unable to comply with all or a portion of your request, we will explain the reasons for declining to comply with the request.
In certain circumstances, you are permitted to use an authorized agent (as that term is defined by the CCPA) to submit requests on your behalf through the designated methods set forth in this California Privacy Disclosures where we can verify the authorized agent’s authority to act on your behalf. For consumer requests, we require the following for verification purposes: (a) receiving a power of attorney valid under the laws of California from you or your authorized agent; or (b) receiving sufficient evidence to show that you have provided the authorized agent signed permission to act on your behalf. We may also require you to verify your identity directly with us pursuant to the instructions set forth in these California Privacy Disclosures, and/or to confirm with us directly that you have provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request on your behalf.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inform us if you are under the age of 16 and are interested in using our Services, or if you are the parent or guardian of someone under 16 who is interested in doing so. We do not sell the personal information of consumers we know to be less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “Right to Opt In”) from either the minor who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a minor less than 13 years of age.
California's “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section §1798.83) provides certain rights to California residents that have an established business relationship with us with regard to the disclosure of certain types of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To opt-out of having your personal information disclosed to third parties for their direct marketing purposes, please contact us at email@example.com and provide your contact information to be added to our suppression list.
We will update this CA Notice from time to time. When we make changes to this CA Notice, we will change the “Effective Date” at the beginning of this CA Notice. All changes shall be effective from the date of publication unless otherwise provided in the notification.
If you have any questions or requests in connection with this CA Notice or other privacy-related matters, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
