Privacy Policy for california residents

Last updated: December 31, 2019

This Privacy Notice for California Residents (the “Notice”) supplements the information contained in our Privacy Policy and applies only if you reside in the State of California (i.e. if you are a “California Consumer”).

For purposes of this Notice “Sell,” “Selling,” “Sale,” or “Sold,” means selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, Personal Information to another business or a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration.

“Verifiable Request” means that the identifying information provided by a California Consumer in connection with a request matches the personal information of the California Consumer already maintained by us. Identifying information you can submit in order to permit Applecart to verify your request may include your first, middle, and last name, date of birth, current residential zip-code and past three residential zip-codes.

a) Information We Collect

Unless we update this Notice to reflect otherwise, we will not collect additional categories of Personal Information, nor use the Personal Information we collect for any other materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes.

c) Sharing Personal Information

Applecart discloses Personal Information to third parties for a Business Purpose. When we disclose Personal Information for a Business Purpose, we enter into an agreement with the receiving party that describes the purpose for sharing the Personal Information, and that requires the receiving party to keep that Personal Information confidential and not use it for any purpose other than performing the services according to the agreement.

We may disclose your Personal Information to: our service providers.

Applecart does not Sell any Personal Information about California Consumers. Applecart’s targeted commercial marketing and political consulting services do not require any disclosure of Personal Information to Applecart’s customers.

You also have the right to request that we delete any of your Personal Information that we collect or maintain by submitting a Verifiable Request. We may deny your deletion request if retaining your Personal Information is necessary for us or our service providers to:

  • Complete the transaction for which we collected your Personal Information;
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities;
  • Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality;
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their right of free speech, or exercise another right provided for by law;
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.);
  • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of such research, if you previously provided informed consent;
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations;
  • Comply with a legal obligation; or
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which we obtained it.
