This PRIVACY NOTICE FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS supplements the information contained in the Privacy Policy of PeopleConnect.us (along with all subdomains, collectively, the "Site"). This PRIVACY NOTICE applies solely to visitors, users, and others who reside in the State of California (“consumers” or “you”).

The State of California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our Website that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

Additionally, this notice is adopted to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) (Civil Code Section § 1798.100 et seq.), as may be amended or supplemented, and other California privacy laws. Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this notice.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT

The PeopleConnect.us site and normal business operations do not collect information that identifies, relates to, describes, references, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or device, including but not limited to identifying information (collectively, “personal information”).
