V. OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Your California Privacy Rights
If you are a California resident, California law permits you to request certain information regarding the disclosure of your personal information by TPN to third parties for the third parties' direct marketing purposes. We do not disclose information about consumers to third parties for such purposes.
California Consumer Privacy Act Disclosures
The California Consumer Privacy Act(“CCPA”) provides California residents with rights to receive certain disclosures regarding the collection, use, and sharing of information about them, as well as rights to know/access, delete, and limit sharing of personal information. You have the right to be free from discrimination based on your exercise of your CCPA rights.
To the extent that we collect personal information that is subject to the CCPA, that information, our practices, and your rights are described below.
Notice at Collection Regarding the Categories of Personal Information Collected
You have the right to receive notice of the categories of personal information we collect, and the purposes for which we use personal information. You also have the right to know about the sources of the personal information and to whom it is disclosed or sold. The categories we use below to describe personal information are those enumerated in the CCPA.
Entities to whom we disclose information for business purposes are service providers, which are companies that we engage to conduct activities on our behalf. Service providers are restricted from using personal information for any purpose that is not related to our engagement.
Entities to whom we “sell” information are third parties. Under the CCPA, a business “sells” personal information when it discloses it to a company for monetary or other benefit. A company may be considered a third party either because the purpose for its sharing of personal information is not for an enumerated business purpose under California law, or because its contract does not restrict it from using personal information for other purposes.
We collect this personal information from the sources described in the Information We Collect section above for the purposes describe in the How We Use Your Information section above.
We do not collect health information, education information (except from job applicants, as described below), or protected classifications information.
Personal information may be disclosed in additional, more limited circumstances, as described in How We Share Your Information above.
Right to Opt Out of Sale of Personal Information to Third Parties
You have the right to opt out of sale of your personal information by TPN to third parties. To exercise your right to opt out of the sale of your personal information, please visit our “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” webpage.
Please note your right to opt out does not apply to our sharing of personal information with service providers.
Right to Know and Request Access to and Deletion of Personal Information
You have the right to request access to personal information collected about you and information regarding the source of that personal information, the purposes for which we collect it, and the third parties and service providers with whom we share it. You also have the right to request in certain circumstances that we delete personal information that we have collected directly from you. We may have a reason under the law why we do not have to comply with your request, or why we may comply with it in a more limited way than you anticipated. If we do, we will explain that to you in our response.
How to Submit an Access or Deletion Request
You may submit a request to exercise your rights to know/access or delete your personal information by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling our toll-free number (1-800-206-2547).
You may authorize another individual or a business registered with the California Secretary of State, called an authorized agent, to make requests on your behalf through these means.
In order to process your request to know/access or delete personal information we collect, disclose, or sell, we must verify your request. We verify your identity by asking you to provide personal identifiers we can match against information we may have collected from you previously and confirm your request using the email or telephone account stated in the request.
We will not use personal information we collect in connection with verifying or responding to your request for any purpose other than responding to your request.
Special Information for Job Applicants
When you apply for a job with TPN, we collect certain information about you as outlined in this Policy. Information may be collected about you in multiple ways: you may provide it to us in connection with your application; we may make observations in the application process or collect information from public information sources; or you may authorize us to collect information from other sources, such as a former employer or reference.
The following table describes our practices with regard to information submitted in the job application process. If you use our website in the job application process, additional information may be automatically collected, as described above.
In certain circumstances, you may submit your application for employment through a third-party service that displays our job posting. We do not control the privacy practices of the set third-party services. Please review their privacy policies carefully prior to submitting your application materials.

Rights of Individuals Located in the EEA, Switzerland, or the UK.
We process “Personal Data,” as that term is defined in the EU General Data Protection Regulation, on the following legal bases: (1) with your consent; (2) as necessary to perform our agreement to provide Services; and (3) as necessary for our legitimate interests in providing the Services where those interests do not override your fundamental rights and freedoms related to data privacy. Information we collect may be transferred to, and stored and processed in, the United States or any other country in which we or our affiliates or subcontractors maintain facilities, as described above.
Users that reside in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), Switzerland, or the United Kingdom have the right to lodge a complaint about our data processing activities with the relevant supervisory authority. The right to lodge a complaint may be invoked in the location in which you reside or work, or where the alleged infringement occurred.
If you are a resident of the EEA, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom, you have certain rights. We may require you to provide us with information so that we can verify you prior to accessing any records containing information about you. These rights include the ability to do the following:
