Privacy Notice for California Residents
Digital Workspace Ecosystem Alliance does not sell your Personal Information. If you register for or attend a Digital Workspace Ecosystem Alliance event and we disclose your contact information to our sponsors for the event, we will only do so if you expressly consent. Although we do not sell personal information in exchange for any monetary consideration, we do share personal information for other benefits that could be deemed a “sale,” as defined by the CCPA. This may include sharing identifiers and traffic information with advertising networks or website analytics companies. You have the right to customize your cookie preference settings at any time.
The CCPA provides California consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
You have the right to request that Digital Workspace Ecosystem Alliance disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request we will disclose to you, as applicable:
The categories of personal information we collected about you.
The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
Our business or commercial purpose for collecting that personal information.
The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (data portability)
If we disclosed your personal information for a business purpose: the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.
You have the right to request that Digital Workspace Ecosystem Alliance delete your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception in the CCPA applies.
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information.
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.
We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
Any disclosures we provide will cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily usable
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
If you would like to inquire about or exercise any rights you may have with respect to your personal information for which we are a service provider that has been submitted to us through a Digital Workspace Ecosystem Alliance customer, you should reach out to that customer directly.
Digital Workspace Ecosystem Alliance reserves the right to amend this Privacy Notice for California Residents at our discretion and at any time. When we make changes to this privacy notice, we will post the updated notice and update the notice’s effective date.
