FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: Your Privacy Rights and How To Exercise Them

If you are a California resident, you have the right, subject to certain exceptions defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) and other applicable laws and regulations, to request that Michael Page International, Inc. (“Company”) disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past twelve (12) months.


  1. 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. 


  1. 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:


  1. 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.


i. 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.


ii. 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 two 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.  Examples of relevant data points include your zip code, previous employment history.
  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. In addition, we will require you to sign a declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the California consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request.
  3. Requests To Delete Personal Information:  Our process for verifying your identity will depend on the sensitivity (as determined by the Company) of the personal information that you ask us to delete.  For less sensitive personal information, we will require a match of two data points as described in Point No. 1, above.  For more sensitive personal information, we will require a match of three data points and a signed declaration as described in Point No. 2, above.


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.


d. 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.


e. 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.
