THIS SUPPLEMENT IS FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS ONLY
What is the CCPA?
The CCPA is a California law that provides California residents certain rights to their personal information.
California residents, called "consumers" in the CCPA, have the following rights:
- The right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of personal information over the past 12 months.
- The right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collect from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions.
- The right to opt-out of the sale of personal information by us.
- The right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for exercising the privacy rights conferred by the CCPA.
We will explain more about how to exercise these rights below.
When we talk about "personal information" under the CCPA, we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked to, directly or indirectly, a particular consumer or household. Personal information does not include publicly available information or information that is deidentified or aggregate consumer information. The CCPA does not apply to personal information covered by certain sector-specific privacy laws, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FRCA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), or the California Financial Information Privacy Act (FIPA), and the Driver's Privacy Protection Act of 1994. It also doesn't apply to health or medical information covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the California Confidentiality of Medical Information Act (CMIA) or clinical trial data.
Scope of the California Privacy Notice.
PPC Group, LLC, offers services to be used by its customers, and most of the personal information processed is done by their direction. This California Privacy Notice only describes our processing activities for data that we own and control.
This California Privacy Notice does not apply to personal information we collect from employees or job applicants in their capacity as employees or job applicants. It also does not apply to personal information we collect from employees, owners, directors, officers, or contractors of businesses in the course of our provision or receipt of business-related services. Therefore, any responses pursuant to the CCPA may exclude those categories of personal information.
Information We Have Collected About Consumers in the Preceding 12 Months.
All of the categories of personal information we collect about you (as detailed below) come from the following categories of sources:
- You, including through your use of our services and product;
- Automatically collected from you; and
- Third parties, such as when you give permission to social networks to share your information with us or where you have made your personal information publicly available online.
The following chart sets out the CCPA categories of personal information we have collected from consumers within the last twelve (12) months.

The Purposes for Which Personal Information is Collected.
We may collect the personal information we collect for one or more of the following business purposes:
- Providing our services (for example, account servicing and maintenance, customer service, advertising and marketing, analytics, and communication about our services);
- For our operational purposes, and the operational purposes of our service providers and integration partners;
- Improving our existing product and services and developing new products and services (e.g., by researching to create new products or features);

Sale of Your Personal Information.
The CCPA defines a "sale" of personal information as the disclosure, sharing, or making available of a consumer's personal information by a business to another business or third party for monetary or other valuable consideration. It is not a sale if a consumer uses or directs the business to intentionally disclose personal information or uses the business to interact with a third party intentionally. PPC Group, LLC, does not monetize your personal information.
Exercising Your California Privacy Rights.
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. Agents must submit proof that they have been authorized by the consumer to act on their behalf. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. 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 verify requests by sending a confirmation email to the requestor and by matching the identifying information provided by the consumer to the personal information already maintained by us. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot: (i) verify your identity or authority to make the request; and (ii) confirm the personal information relates to you. If we are unable to verify the identity of a consumer to a sufficient degree of certainty, we will deny the request and explain the reason for the denial.
If you would like further information regarding your legal rights under applicable law or would like to exercise any of them, please contact us via [email protected].
You may only make a verifiable request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. California residents may exercise their California privacy rights by submitting your request to [email protected].
If you wish to exercise any of these rights and do not have an account with us, please contact us via [email protected]. We will request additional information to perform identity verification where possible.
Other California Privacy Rights.
In addition to the CCPA, the California Civil Code permits California residents with whom we have an established business relationship to request that we provide you with a list of certain categories of personal information that we have disclosed to third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year. To make such a request, please contact us at [email protected] and mention that you are making a "California Shine the Light" inquiry.
