Sensitive California Personal Information

Disclosure of California Personal Information

We may disclose your California Personal Information to a third party for a business purpose. When we disclose California Personal Information for a business purpose, we enter a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract.

  • Our affiliated companies.
  • Our customers.
  • Our vendors.
  • Our service providers.
  • Other third parties to protect our legal rights or comply with legal requirements.
  • Other third parties as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or other legal process, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.
  • Other third parties with your prior consent.

See CSI’s “Categories of Personal Information under the California Consumer Privacy Act” summary chart above to see the California Personal Information that has been disclosed by CSI in the twelve (12) months prior to the “Last Reviewed” date and to whom such information was disclosed for a business purpose.

Sales and Shares of California Personal Information

The CCPA defines “sale” as the transfer of personal information for monetary or other valuable consideration. Although we do not “sell” California Personal Information as that term may be commonly interpreted, we engage in online activities that may constitute a sale or a share of California Personal Information under California law. This may include showing you advertisements on other websites.

The following table identifies the categories of California Personal Information that we sold or shared to third parties in the 12 months preceding the Effective Date of this Privacy Policy and, for each category, the categories of third parties to whom we sold or shared Personal Information:

Category of Personal Information Categories of Third Parties
Unique personal identifiers (cookies, beacons, pixel tags, mobile ad identifiers, or other similar technology) Advertising networks; data analytics providers

We sold or shared Personal Information to third parties to advance our commercial or economic interests.

CSI also notes that persons attending CSI’s Annual Customer Conference on behalf of CSI customer financial institutions and other businesses may share their own Personal Information with other attendees, including exhibitors. CSI does not request the attendees to engage in the sale of their Personal Information nor does CSI receive any consideration for the sharing.

We do not knowingly collect, sell, or share the California Personal Information of consumers under 16 years of age.

Retention of California Personal Information

We retain your California Personal Information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collect it, such as to provide you with the service you have requested, and for the purpose of satisfying any legal, accounting, contractual, or reporting requirements that apply to us.

Your Rights and Choices with Respect to California Personal Information

The CCPA provides California residents with the following rights regarding California Personal Information:

  • The right to know what California Personal Information we have collected about you, including the categories of California Personal Information, the categories of sources from which we collected California Personal Information, the business or commercial purpose for collecting, selling or sharing California Personal Information (if applicable), the categories of third parties to whom we disclose California Personal Information (if applicable), and the specific pieces of California Personal Information we collected about you;
  • The right to delete California Personal Information that we collected from you, subject to certain exceptions;
  • The right to correct inaccurate California Personal Information that we maintain about you;
  • If we sell or share California Personal Information, the right to opt out of the sale or sharing;
  • If we use or disclose sensitive California Personal Information for purposes other than those allowed by the CCPA and its regulations, the right to limit our use or disclosure; and
  • The right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for the exercise of privacy rights the CCPA confers.

Exercising Access, Correction, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, correction, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

Only you, or an authorized agent, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your California Personal Information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

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 California Personal Information, or an authorized agent, which includes:
    • A valid copy of a California Driver’s License
  • 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 your California Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the California Personal Information relates to you. Absent a power of attorney, authorized agents shall provide a signed permission from the consumer before CSI may fulfill the request.

Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.

We will only use California Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

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.

We will deliver our written response electronically.

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 California Personal Information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

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 we reserve the right to either refuse to act on your request or charge you a reasonable fee to complete your request if it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.

Right to Opt Out of Sale or Sharing of California Personal Information

If you are a California resident, you have the right to direct us to stop selling or sharing your California Personal Information.

You may submit a request to opt out of sales or sharing through our interactive webform available by clicking here. If you have enabled privacy controls on your browser (such as a plugin), we will also treat that as a valid request to opt out. To download and use a browser supporting the GPC browser signal, click here: If you choose to use the GPC signal, you will need to turn it on for each supported browser or browser extension you use.
