Supplemental Notice for California Consumers

Date Posted and Effective Date: December 14, 2021

 

This Supplemental Notice for California Consumers (“ Supplemental Notice ”) is a part of the Privacy Policy and supplements the information contained in the Privacy Notice.  This Supplemental Notice applies solely to visitors, users, and others who are residents of the State of California (as defined in Section 17014 of Title 18 of the California Code of Regulations).

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 ( CCPA ) gives California residents the right to know what personal information AuditNet collects about them, including whether it is being sold or disclosed to third parties. The CCPA also grants certain rights to California residents, including the right to delete their personal information (subject to certain exceptions) and the right to prevent AuditNet from selling their personal information. Companies are also prohibited from retaliating or discriminating against consumers for exercising their rights under the CCPA.

This Supplemental Notice provides the information required under the CCPA and applies to both AuditNet’s online and offline activities. For more information about how we collect, use, and share information through our Site and Services, please review the body of our Privacy Policy found here: https:// auditnet.org/privacy-policy   Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this Supplemental Notice.

We set out below the CCPA categories of personal information we have collected from or about California consumers within the last twelve (12) months, including consumers that have viewed our Site, used our Services, attended an event sponsored or hosted by AuditNet, or have otherwise interacted with AuditNet or our Services. Personal information in certain categories may overlap with personal information in other categories. Under the CCPA, “personal information” does not include publicly available information that is lawfully made available to the general public from federal, state, or local government records.
