CCPA Addendum

Effective: January 1, 2020

This CCPA addendum, privacy and cookie notice ("Notice"), explains your rights as a California consumer regarding personal information that is subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA"). This Notice, which supplements the information contained in our Privacy Policy about Wise Publishing’s general privacy practices, applies only to California residents.

This Notice only describes Wise Publishing’s privacy practices with regard to personal information that is subject to the CCPA ("CCPA Information"). The Privacy Policy, and not this Notice, describes Wise Publishing’s privacy practices relating to personal information collected, processed, sold, or disclosed, which is not subject to the CCPA. Only that information which is different or in addition to the Privacy Policy in reflected here. The Privacy Policy also includes other information about Wise Publishing’s privacy practices generally.

Wise Publishing acknowledges the intention of the California legislature as follows:

The right of Californians to:

  • know what personal information is being collected about them;
  • know whether their personal information is sold or disclosed and to whom;
  • say no to the sale of personal information;
  • access their personal information; and
  • equal service and price, even if they exercise their privacy rights.

The Wise Publishing Privacy Policy includes information on the categories of personal information it collects and the specifics of what has been collected (#3) the sources (#3), the business or commercial purpose (#4), the third parties with whom it is shared (#5).

Under the CCPA, California residents have certain rights to request access to and deletion of CCPA Information. The Wise Publishing Privacy Policy provides how to request and how you can restrict collection of your information (#10).

In response to a request, we will delete CCPA Information we have collected from you unless the CCPA Information is needed for the following:

  • To complete a transaction for which we collected the CCPA Information, provide a good or service you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you,
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities,
  • Debug products to identify or repair errors that impair functionality,
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law,
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us,
  • Comply with a legal obligation, including compliance with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act, or
  • Otherwise use CCPA Information about you, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information.

To better protect you and CCPA Information about you, we will only respond to access or deletion requests that we have been able to properly verify through our authentication processes. To verify your identity, you will be asked to provide certain information, which we will only use to verify your identity and/or your authority to make the request. We will not respond to more than two access requests from you within a 12-month period.

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA.
