The purpose of this PNCR is to provide California residents with a description of GC Services’ online and offline practices regarding the collection, use, disclosure, and sale of personal information and of the rights of California consumers regarding their personal information.
The specific categories of personal information we may have collected about you is dependent on a variety of factors including, but not limited to, the circumstances surrounding why we may have been in contact with you. Generally, we may have collected personal information about individuals who are our employees, job applicants, prospective clients, customers of our clients, individuals who may be able to provide location information for customers of our clients, or individuals who have visited our website(s). Accordingly, in the preceding twelve (12) months, GC Services may have collected the following categories of personal information about you, as applicable:
This section describes your rights under the CCPA and explains how to exercise those rights. Please note this section does not apply to employment-related personal information collected from California-based employees, job applicants, contractors, or similar individuals.
In order to exercise your rights under the CCPA, you are required to submit a verifiable consumer request. The steps for submitting a verifiable consumer request are provided below in the section titled Submitting a Request Under the CCPA.
You have the right to request that GC Services disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you:
GC Services does not engage in the sale of personal information.
You have the right to request that GC Services delete any of your personal information that we collected and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, 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) to:
GC Services does not discriminate against consumers who exercise their rights provided by the CCPA.
To exercise your rights described above, you will need to submit a verifiable consumer request. We offer two (2) methods to submit your request:
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. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
We will be unable to respond to a 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. The type of information needed to verify your identity is dependent on the circumstances surrounding why we may have been in contact with you. Generally and for most individuals, however, your name, address, phone number, and your GC account number will likely be necessary for us to verify your identity.
We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
We will 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.
We will deliver our written response to you by mail or electronically, at your option.
Our response to a verifiable consumer request will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your verifiable consumer request.
If we are unable to comply with a request, we will provide a response which explains the reason(s) we are unable to comply with a request, if applicable.
GC Services reserves the right to amend this Privacy Notice for California Residents at our discretion and at any time. When we make changes to this privacy notice, we will post the updated notice on our website(s) and update the Privacy Notice's effective date.
