It applies to “personal information,” which is defined as information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with California consumers. The CCPA grants California consumers rights with respect to the collection of their personal information, including, among other things, the right to delete the personal information a business holds about them, the right to opt-out of the sale of their personal information, and the right to know what personal information a business collects about them.StreamNative operates in a business to business (“B2B”) context and as a service provider pursuant to contracts we have with our commercial clients (the “Client”). In such instances, we are obligated to process the personal information we collect or are provided in connection with the Services in accordance with instructions from or the contract with our Client, which is the “Business” ultimately responsible for determining how your personal information will be handled. Accordingly, if you are using the Services in connection with your role as an employee of a Client, or by virtue of some other relationship with a Client, we encourage you to review that Client’s privacy policy to understand the full scope of how your personal information will be handled. Further, in any case where we are acting as a service provider to a Client, if you or your authorized agent (together referred to hereinafter, where applicable, as “you”) wish to exercise any rights that may be available to you under the CCPA, you should direct your request to the Client, who is the party responsible for receiving, assessing, and responding to your requests under the CCPA.We do not sell personal information of California consumers as defined under the CCPA. Shine the Light Law. California’s “Shine The Light” law permits California customers to annually request and obtain information free of charge about what personal information is disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. We do not disclose your personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes.

CONTROLS FOR DO-NOT-TRACK FEATURES

Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. No uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this privacy policy.
