11. Notice to California residents of certain rights under the CCPA

This section outlines specific rights granted under the CCPA to individual California residents and provides information regarding how such California residents can exercise their rights under the CCPA. This section is only relevant to you if you are a resident of California as determined in accordance with the CCPA. Information required to be disclosed to California residents under the CCPA regarding the collection of their Personal Data that is not set forth in this section is otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy. For the avoidance of doubt, for purposes of this Privacy Policy, references to Personal Data in Section 12 (“Data subject rights under European data protection legislation”) of this Privacy Policy and in sections that are specific to rights under the GDPR are deemed to include references to “personal information” as defined under the CCPA.

Deletion Rights: You have the right to request that we delete any of your Personal Data that we retain, subject to certain statutory exceptions, including, but not limited to, our compliance with U.S., state, local and non-U.S. laws, rules and regulations. We will notify you in writing and provide an explanation if we cannot comply with a specific request.

Disclosure and Access Rights: You have the right to request that we disclose to you certain information regarding our collection and use of Personal Data specific to you over the last twelve (12) months. Such information includes:

• the categories of Personal Data we collected about you;
• the categories of sources from which the Personal Data was collected;
• our business or commercial purpose for collecting such Personal Data;
• the categories of third parties with whom we share the Personal Data;
• the specific pieces of Personal Data we collected about you; and
• whether we disclosed your Personal Data to a third party, and, if yes, the categories of Personal Data that each recipient obtained.

No Discrimination: We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under the CCPA, including by denying service, suggesting that you will receive, or charging, different rates for services or suggesting that you will receive, or providing, a different level or quality of service to you.

How to Exercise Your Rights: To exercise any of your rights under the CCPA or to access this notice in an alternative format, please submit a request on your behalf using any of the methods set forth in Section 14 (“Contact”) of this Privacy Policy below.

12. Data subject rights under European data protection legislation

This Section 12 is relevant to you to the extent that your Personal Data is protected by the GDPR or equivalent European data protection legislation. For the purposes of applicable data protection laws in the European Economic Area, including the GDPR, each SIL entity will be a data controller of any Personal Data collected by us. In simple terms, this means that we:
(i) “control” your personal data, including making sure that it is kept secure; and
(ii) make certain decisions on how to use and protect your Personal Data, but only to the extent that we have informed you about the use or such use is otherwise permitted by law. If this paragraph applies to you and you have any questions regarding our use of your Personal Data, or this Privacy Policy, please contact us using the contact details in Section 14 (“Contact”) of this Privacy Policy.

Special Categories of Personal Data: We may collect special categories of Personal Data about you for which we act as a data controller when we collect Personal Data in this manner. Special categories of Personal Data may include certain demographic information about you such as race, ethnicity and sexual orientation. For example, we may collect information about your race, ethnicity and sexual orientation when you apply for a job with us if you choose to disclose such information. We may also collect information about prior criminal convictions and offences in connection with your application for employment with SIL, and other special categories of Personal Data as part of background checks that we conduct on job applicants and/or clients and as part of providing services on behalf of our clients. If you provide us with, or we collect, any special categories of Personal Data, or criminal conviction data, on yourself, we will separately ask you for consent before we agree to the processing of such Personal Data.

Automated Decision-Making: No automated decision-making, including profiling, is used when processing your Personal Data.

Data Retention: We will retain your Personal Data only for so long as we need the Personal Data for the purposes it was collected, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements, unless a longer retention period is required under applicable law or requested by you. To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Data, the purposes for which we process your Personal Data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

Your Personal Data Rights: To the extent that your Personal Data is protected by the GDPR or equivalent European data protection legislation, you have the right to access the Personal Data we hold about you, and there are a number of ways you can control the way in which we store such Personal Data. We have explained these individual rights below. To exercise these rights, please contact us using the contact details in Section 14 (“Contact”) of this Privacy Policy.

Access: You have the right to ask for a copy of the Personal Data that we hold about you free of charge, however we may charge a “reasonable and proportionate fee” if we think that your request is excessive, to help us cover the costs of locating the Personal Data you have requested. We will respond to your request as soon as possible and (save for in certain circumstances) within one month.

Correction: If there are any inaccuracies in the Personal Data we hold about you, please contact us and we will correct them.

Deletion: If you think that we should not be processing your Personal Data any more, you may request that we delete it. Please note that this may not always be possible due to legal obligations.

Restrictions on use: You may request that we restrict our processing of your Personal Data (other than storing it), if:
(i) you contest the accuracy of it (unless the accuracy is verified);
(ii) you believe the processing is against applicable law;
(iii) you believe that we no longer need your Personal Data for the purposes for which it was collected (and so may otherwise amend or delete your Personal Data), but you still need your data to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim; or
(iv) you have objected to the processing (as set forth in the bullet immediately below) and we are verifying whether our legitimate grounds to process your Personal Data override your own rights. In such circumstances, we will only process such Personal Data based on your consent (including not deleting it). However, in certain situations, we may override this right to restriction, either with your consent, to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, to protect the rights of others, or for public interests purposes. We will inform you where such exemption applies or where the restriction is no longer available.

Object: You have the right to object to the processing of your Personal Data where we are relying on a legitimate interest and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your Personal Data which override your rights and freedoms.

Request the transfer: If you wish to transfer your Personal Data to another organization (and certain conditions are satisfied), you may ask us to do so, and we will send it directly if we have the technical means. Please note that this right only applies to automated Personal Data which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the Personal Data to perform a contract with you.

Withdrawal of consent: If you previously gave us your consent to allow us to process your Personal Data for a particular purpose, but you no longer wish to consent to us doing so, you can contact us to let us know that you withdraw that consent. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

Complaints to Supervisory Authorities: You also have the right to make a complaint at any time to the competent data protection supervisory authority in your jurisdiction if you do not agree with the manner in which we have processed your Personal Data or responded to your requests in relation to your Personal Data. We always appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach any such authority so please contact us in the first instance using the contacts in Section 14 (“Contact”).

13. Our commitment to children’s privacy

Unless required by laws or our obligations or purpose to provide our services to you, we do not seek to collect or maintain information (including Personal Data) on the Website from those we know are under the age of 18, and no part of the Website is structured to attract anyone under the age of 13. If we learn we have collected or received Personal Data from an individual under the age of 13, we will delete that Personal Data.
