California Privacy Notice

This section supplements the information contained in the other sections of this Privacy Notice and applies solely to clients, visitors, users, and others who reside in the state of California (“consumers” or “you”) and for whom we have data that is subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 as may be amended or supplemented from time to time, including through the California Privacy Rights Act (collectively, the “CCPA”). This Privacy Notice, including this additional information, is provided to comply with the CCPA and other California privacy laws. Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this section.

This section describes our privacy practices offline and online, and contains the CCPA’s required disclosures and instructions for California residents who wish to exercise their rights under CCPA. Please note that, to the extent permitted under CCPA, this California Privacy Notice does not apply to the PI of California residents that we collect for employment-related purposes. For any employment-related information, please review our employee privacy notice available here.

The chart below provides a description of the types of personal information we may collect. It also describes the business or commercial purpose(s) for which we may collect, use and disclose personal information, and the categories of third parties with whom we have shared or sold each type of personal information in the past twelve (12) months. Below the chart, we have outlined the criteria we use to determine how long such information will be retained. We may collect the categories of personal information described in the chart as described in the “Information We Collect” section of our Policy. We may share personal information we collect as described in the “Sharing Personal Information” section of our Policy.

The CCPA contains specific definitions for “sharing” and “selling” personal information. These definitions only apply to this California Privacy Notice, and do not apply to the rest of our Policy. “Share” or “sharing” means, in short, sharing personal information for cross-contextual advertising purposes. “Sale” or “selling” is defined very broadly and includes the disclosure of PI for monetary or valuable consideration. Note that as of the date of the Policy, we do not knowingly “sell” or “share” personal information, including any information relating to consumers under the age of 16 years. This statement is based on our understanding of how these terms are defined under the CCPA.

Our personal information retention criteria: The CCPA requires that we disclose the criteria we use to determine how long we will retain each category of personal information in the chart above. Oftentimes, our records contain several of these categories of personal information combined together and therefore we consider, on a case-by-case basis, a number of factors to assess how long personal information is retained. These factors include what personal information is reasonably necessary to (i) provide our products and services or administer our relationship with a consumer; (ii) protect our business, employees, organization and others; (iii) fulfill our legal and regulatory obligations; and (iv) investigate and address issues which may include safety concerns, potential security incidents or policy violations.

Disclosures of Personal Information for a Business Purpose

In the preceding twelve (12) months, Atkinson has disclosed the following categories of personal information for a business purpose. We have not disclosed this information to third parties (e.g., non-service providers) in the past 12 months.

  • Identifiers.
  • California Customer Records personal information categories.
  • Protected classification characteristics under California or federal law.
  • Biometric information.
  • Commercial information.
  • Internet or other similar network activity.

Your CCPA Rights and Choices

The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights

You have the right to request that we 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 (see Exercising Your Rights), we will disclose to you:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Your Rights), 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:

  • Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, 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 and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et seq.).
  • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information's deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research's achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  • Comply with a legal obligation.
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
Correction Requests

This means that you can request that we correct inaccurate personal information that we maintain about you.

Opt-Out of the Sale or Sharing of Personal Information

The CCPA provides a right to opt out of the “sale” or “sharing” of personal information. Note that as of the date of this Policy, we do not knowingly “sell” or “share” personal information, including the personal information of consumers under the age of 16 years. This statement is based on our understanding of how these terms are defined under the CCPA.

Exercising Your Rights

To exercise the rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

  • Calling us at +1 (888) 826-2461
  • Contacting us at this form.

Only you, or someone legally authorized 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. We may request that you provide us with additional information in order to verify your identity.

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, which may include:
    • Obtaining additional information from you for verification purposes
    • Requiring that you 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 relates to you.

We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

We will acknowledge any request received within ten (10) business days, and endeavor to respond to a verifiable 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.

If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt. 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 usable 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.


We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

  • Deny you goods or services.
  • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
  • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

Additional Information about your California Rights. If you reside in California, you have the right to ask us one time each year if we have shared personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make a request, please contact us. Indicate in your note that you are a California resident making a “California Shine the Light” inquiry.

Other State Privacy Rights

In addition to California, several other states may provide their residents with certain rights regarding the collection and use of their personal information. The categories of personal information that we process, and the purposes for which we process your personal information, are described above.

Under these state laws, you may have the right to:

  • Confirm whether or not we are processing your personal information and provide access to such personal information.
    • Delete personal information provided to us by or obtained by us about you.
    • Provide you with a copy of your personal information that you previously provided to us in a portable and, to the extent technically feasible, readily usable format.
    • Correct inaccuracies in your personal information, taking into account the nature of the personal information and the purposes of the processing of your personal information.
    • Provide a method for you to opt-out of the processing of your personal information for purposes of online behavioral advertising, the sale of your personal information, as the term “sale” is defined under the relevant state privacy law, or profiling in furtherance of decisions that produce legal or similarly significant effects concerning you.
    • Opt out of certain types of profiling.

In addition, if you are a Nevada resident, under Privacy and Security of Personal Information Chapter of the Nevada Revised Statutes Section 603A (“603A”), you have the right to submit a verified request to us, directing us not to make any sale of certain “personal information” as defined under this law that we have collected or will collect about you.

If you wish to exercise your state privacy rights under this section, you can contact us at +1 (888) 826-2461 or through this form. Please include your name, email address, and state of residence and indicate your “Privacy Rights” request. We will take commercially reasonable efforts to authenticate any requests that you submit.
