Personal Information as Defined by the CCPA

Under the CCPA, personal information is defined as any information that could be reasonably linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California consumer or household. A consumer under the CCPA is defined as a natural person who is a California resident. A household, under the CCPA, is defined as a collective of individuals - such as a family or occupants at a residential address.

Examples of personal information include but are not limited to:

  • An individual’s name.
  • Employee ID number.
  • Home address.
  • Social Security number.
  • Passport number.
  • Driver’s license number.
  • Products/services purchased, obtained, or considered.
  • Biometric information.
  • Audio, electronic, visual, thermal, olfactory, or similar information.
  • Education information that is not publicly available.
  • Internet and other electronic network activity information.
  • Geolocation data.
  • Email address.
  • Network ID, IP Address, and Network Activities.

CCPA does not apply to de-identified or aggregated consumer information that a business may hold. De-identified information is data that has had all personally identified information removed from it. Aggregated information is numerical or non-numerical information that is compiled into data summaries or summary reports for data statistics or public reporting.

DFIN and our third party affiliates do not conduct business directly with individual consumers or households. Our business partnerships are business-to-business (“B2B”) with companies. Under the CCPA’s Assembly Bill No. 1355 Amendment, a “B2B exemption” has been put in place for the first year of CCPA’s enforcement. Businesses that collect personal information of a consumer that acts on behalf of another business rather than themselves are currently out of scope of the CCPA. Consumers personal information that we or our third party affiliates collect within a business and/or B2B context is not required at this time to receive Notice at Collection, the right to access or deletion.

California Consumer Rights and Choices

Under the CCPA, California residents have the following rights:

  • The right to know which personal information is being collected.
  • The right to know if personal information is being sold or shared, and to whom.
  • The right to object to the sale of personal information.
  • The right to access one's own personal information.
  • The right to equal service and price, even for consumers who exercise their privacy rights.
  • The right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions.

California consumers may exercise their rights under the CCPA twice within a 12-month period. DFIN will not charge you or discriminate against you for choosing to exercise your rights. DFIN will make reasonable efforts to comply with consumer rights requests, unless such requests are prohibited by law, or there is a legitimate business purpose to retain personal information. 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. DFIN reserves the right to verify your identity before any request to update or delete your personal information is processed by us. The verifiable consumer request must provide sufficient information that allows DFIN to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative, as well as describe your request with sufficient detail that allows DFIN to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. The CCPA grants businesses 45 days to respond to a consumer rights request. An extension period of up to an additional 90 days is allowed.
