2. How we share the personal information of California consumers
3. California privacy rights

Scope:



This California Privacy Policy only applies to the personal information of residents of the U.S. state of California in their capacity as consumers (“California consumers”). “Consumer” does not include Company’s employees, job applicants who apply to work directly for Michael Page International, Inc., owners, directors, officers, medical staff members, or contract workers providing services directly to Michael Page International, Inc. (collectively, “HR individuals”), or the emergency contacts of HR individuals or the dependents or spouses who receive Company benefits by virtue of their relationship to an HR individual in their capacities as HR individuals or emergency contacts, dependents, or spouses. “Consumer” also does not include employees or other agents of a business engaged in a transaction with Company in their capacities as employees or agents of that business. For avoidance of doubt, this California Privacy Policy does apply to job applicants and contract workers seeking Michael Page International Inc.’s assistance in finding a suitable job or contract with one of our clients.

For purposes of this California Privacy Policy, “personal information” means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. Personal information does not include protected health information, as defined by HIPAA.

This California Privacy Policy applies to all personal information of California consumers collected, disclosed for business purposes, or sold by Company, regardless of whether the personal information is collected, disclosed or sold through Company’s website.

3. Your California Privacy Rights and How To Exercise Them



Your California Privacy Rights



  • Right to Know: California consumers have the right to submit a verifiable request to know what personal information Company collects, uses, discloses, and sells.
  • Right To Delete: California consumers have the right to submit a verifiable request for deletion of their personal information that Company has collected or maintains.
  • Right to Opt Out of Sale: California consumers have the right to opt out of the sale of their personal information. California consumers under the age of 16 must opt in to the sale of their personal information, or their parent or guardian must opt in on their behalf. As noted above, Company did not sell California consumers’ personal information during the past 12 months.

How to Exercise Your Rights



Company will respond to requests in accordance with applicable law if it can verify the identity of the individual submitting the request. California consumers can exercise their rights to know and to delete in the following ways:


How We Will Verify Your Request:



The processes that we follow to verify your identity when you make a request to know or a request to delete are described below.  The relevant process depends on how and why the request is submitted.

Requests Using an existing email account 

If you created a password-protected email account, registered on our database before the date of your request, we will rely on this account as verification of your identity.  We will ask that you re-authenticate your account via an automated email and will only disclose your personal information (in response to a request to know) or delete your personal information (in response to a request to delete) once the above steps have been completed.

Please note that you are responsible for protecting the security of your email account.  If we suspect fraudulent or malicious activity we will be unable to process your request until further verification checks have been made.

Requests Other Than Through A Password-Protected Account: 

The following verification processes will be followed if you submit a request by any means other than through a password-protected account created before the date of your request:

1. Requests To Know Categories Of Personal Information:  We will match at least three data points that you provide with your request to know, against information we already hold about you on our systems and that we have determined to be reliable for purposes of verifying your identity. 

2. Requests To Know Specific Pieces Of Personal Information:  We will match at least three data points that you provide with your request to know, against information that we already hold about you on our systems and that we have determined to be reliable for purposes of verifying your identity.

3. Requests To Delete Personal Information:  We will match at least three data points that you provide with your request to know, against information that we already hold about you on our systems and that we have determined to be reliable for purposes of verifying your identity.

We have implemented the following additional procedures when verifying the identity of requestors:

1. If we are unable to complete the above verifications, we may ask you for additional documentation.  All additional information will be permanently deleted after we have completed the verification process and will not be used for any other purpose.

2. If we cannot verify your identity to a satisfactory level, we will provide you with a prompt decision and explanation.

Authorized Agents



You may designate an authorized agent to exercise your right to know or your right to delete by submitting to us a completed “Authorized Agent Designation” form.  You can obtain the designation form by contacting us at [email protected]

If an authorized agent submits a request to know or a request to delete on your behalf, the authorized agent must submit with the request either (a) a power of attorney that is valid under California law, or (b) a document signed by you that authorizes the authorized agent to submit the request on your behalf.  In addition, we may ask you to follow the applicable process described above for verifying your identity.

Company’s Non-Discrimination Policy



California consumers have the right not to be subject to discriminatory treatment by Company for exercising their privacy rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act, and Company will not discriminate on that basis. However, Company may charge a California consumer a different price or rate or provide a different level or quality of goods or services if the difference is reasonably related to the value provided to the California consumer by the consumer’s personal information. If Company does so, it will provide consumers with any legally required notice.

Tracking



Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature (DNT) that signals to the websites that you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Many websites and applications, including the Michael Page Site, do not currently respond to web browser DNT signals because such signals are not yet uniform. For more information about DNT signals, please visit http://allaboutdnt.com.

We may track your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. For example, we might use web beacons to help us determine what links or advertisers brought you to the Michael Page Site. We then track your activities on the Michael Page Site. Third parties do not assist in collecting online activities over time, and across third-party websites, of users who use the Michael Page Site.
