8. Your California Privacy Rights

A. Applicant Privacy Rights

The CCPA provides California residents with specific rights regarding Personal Information. This section describes your rights under the CCPA and explains how to exercise those rights. Subject to certain conditions and exceptions, Applicants have the right to make the following requests:

You also have the right to opt-out of "sales" and "sharing" of your Personal Information through the use of an opt-out preference signal. If we detect that your browser or device is transmitting an opt-out preference signal, such as the "global privacy control"—or GPC—signal, we will opt that browser or device out of cookies that result in a "sale" or "sharing" of your Personal Information. If you visit our website from a different device or from a different browser on the same device, you will need to opt-out, or use an opt-out preference signal, for that browser and/or device as well.

B. Exercising Your California Privacy Rights

To exercise any of these CCPA rights, please use one of the following methods:

EmployBridge may require additional information to confirm your identity before fulfilling the request, such as your full name, the email address you used to communicate with us, and your address. In some cases, we may request additional information to verify your identity, or where necessary to process your request. If we are unable to verify your identity after a good faith attempt, we may deny the request and, if so, will explain the basis for the denial.

You may designate someone as an authorized agent to submit requests and act on your behalf. To do so, you must provide us with written permission to allow the authorized agent to act on your behalf. We may also ask you directly to verify that you have authorized your authorized agent to act on your behalf.
