Petal California Employment Information Privacy Statement
This California Employment Information Privacy Statement applies to any employee, contractor, job applicant, or prospective employee of Petal Card, Inc. (“we”, “us”, “our”, or “Petal”) who is a California resident and about whom we have collected personal information in the course of employment or application for employment (collectively, “you”). This section explains how Petal may collect, use, and disclose personal information subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act and California Privacy Rights Act (together, the “CCPA”). It also describes the privacy rights of California residents under the CCPA and how they can exercise those rights.
What Personal Information is Covered by the CCPA?
Under the CCPA “personal information” is information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California consumer/resident or household. Personal information does not include publicly available information, or lawfully obtained, truthful information that is a matter of public concern, information that has been de-identified, aggregate consumer information, or information that does not fall within the definition of personal information above.
The CCPA does not apply to certain information that is already regulated by federal or state employment and/or labor laws, and to certain information that is already regulated by federal or state privacy laws, such as information subject to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), and certain other state or federal privacy laws.
Categories of Personal Information We Collect
In the past 12 months, we have collected the following categories of personal information, as defined in the CCPA, relating to California residents. The categories of personal information that we collect, use, and disclose about a California resident will depend on our specific relationship or interaction with that individual. The examples provided in each category below include both financial and non-financial information and are for illustrative purposes only.
Please note that because of the overlapping nature of certain of the categories of personal information identified above, which are required by state law, some of the personal information we collect may be reasonably classified under multiple categories.
The personal information of California residents that we collect or use will be retained for the length of time as required by applicable state or federal laws or regulations, or in accordance with an applicable Petal policy.
Sensitive personal information. Certain of the above personal information is considered “sensitive personal information” under California law. This includes:
Petal will not retain any information we collect from you for longer than is reasonably necessary for the disclosed purpose of using such information. Our determination of precise retention periods will be based on (i) the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you; (ii) whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject; and (iii) whether retention is advisable in light of our legal position (such as in regard to applicable statutes of limitations, litigation or regulatory investigations).
