Exercising access to data, data correction, data portability, and data deletion rights

To exercise the access, data correction, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:



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 for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:


  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.


We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information related to you. 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. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your Personal Information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.


We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Response timing and format

We will confirm receipt of a verifiable consumer request within ten (10) business days of its receipt. We will endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) calendar days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will notify you of the extension and provide an explanation of the reason for the extension in writing, and we will provide you with a response no later than ninety (90) calendar days from receiving the request.



We will retain your personal information for no longer than is necessary for the purpose stated in this Privacy Policy unless otherwise extending the retention period is required or permitted by law or subject to our retention policies as may be in place from time to time. The data storage period may vary with scenario, product, and service.


The standards we use to determine the retention period are as follows: the time required to retain personal information to fulfill business purposes, including providing products and services; maintaining business records; controlling and improving the performance and quality of the Sites; handling possible user queries or conducting assessments of user complaints; whether you agree to a longer retention period; and whether the laws, contracts and other equivalencies have special requirements for data retention.


Employee and Job Candidate Data

Our employees, contingent workers, and prospective employees (job applicants) who live in California have the same rights over their employment and job application data. We do not sell or share any employee or job applicant data with anyone other than third-party service providers necessary to complete requested services (e.g., payroll and benefits management, background check vendor). Our employees, who are California residents, have access to the consumer's rights prescribed under the CCPA/CPRA.


Business-to-Business Data

In the course of business with vendors, clients, service providers, and others, we may collect personal data from California-resident individuals solely because they are employees of vendors (potential or actual), clients (potential or actual), and other business partners. These individuals have the same rights over their personal data as other California consumers.


We do not sell or share any personal information, including “business-to-business” data, with anyone other than necessary third parties that are essential to completing the business between us.
