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. Personal information does not include:

  • Publicly available information from government records.
  • Information excluded from the CCPA's scope, such as health or medical information covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (‘’HIPAA’’) and personal information covered by certain sector-specific privacy laws, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (‘’FCRA’’), or the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (‘’GLBA’’).
  • De-identified or aggregated consumer information. 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 does 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, businesses that collect personal information of a consumer that reflects a written or verbal business-to-business communication or transaction in the context of conducting due diligence regarding, or providing or receiving a product or service ("B2B personal information") are exempted from some of the requirements under CCPA. Where noted in this Notice, 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 specific rights regarding their personal information. 

Right to Know and Data Portability
California residents have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past twelve (12) months, including:

  • The right to know which categories of personal information are being collected.
  • The right to know the categories of sources for the personal information 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.

A Right to Know request may only be submitted twice within a 12-month period. DFIN does not provide a ‘right to know’ or data portability disclosure for B2B personal information.

Right to Delete
California residents have the right to request the deletion of your personal information that is collected from you and retained by DFIN, subject to certain exceptions.

DFIN is not required to delete personal information if it is still needed in order to complete the transaction for which the information was collected, provide a good or service requested by you (or that we reasonably anticipate based on our relationship with you), perform a contract with you, comply with legal obligations, or accomplish any other objective recognized as an exception to the right to deletion under CCPA.

DFIN does not provide deletion rights for B2B personal information.

Exercising Your Rights
DFIN will never charge you or discriminate against you for choosing to exercise your rights. DFIN will make reasonable efforts to comply with all consumer rights requests. 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.

All California Consumer Rights requests including deletion requests can be emailed directly to
