California Privacy Addendum

 

Effective Date: September 9, 2021

Last Reviewed on: September 9, 2021

This Privacy Addendum for California Residents (the “California Privacy Addendum”) supplements the information contained in McGrath RentCorp’s Data Privacy and Security Policy (the “General Privacy Notice”) and applies solely to all visitors, users, and others who reside in the State of California (“consumers” or “you”). We adopt this California Privacy Addendum to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) and the California Consumer Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”), which will go into effect on January 1, 2023. Any terms defined in the CCPA or CPRA have the same meaning when used in this California Website Privacy Addendum. If you are a California resident with disabilities, and need to be provided with an accessible version of this section or the policy as a whole, please contact us at privacyinquiry@mgrc.com. This California Privacy Addendum takes precedence over anything contradictory in our General Privacy Notice.

Note that this California Privacy Addendum does not apply to employment-related personal information collected from our California-based employees, job applicants, contractors, or similar individuals. Please contact your local human resources department if you are a California employee and would like additional information about how we process your Covered Personal Information (as defined below). It also does not apply to Covered Personal Information reflecting a written or verbal business-to-business communication between you and us.

 

Information We Collect

Our Websites, as applicable to your use of the services, 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 (“Covered Personal Information”). In particular, our Websites have collected the following categories of Covered Personal Information from its consumers within the last twelve (12) months:

Category

Examples

A. Identifiers.

A real name, alias, postal address, unique personal identifier, online identifier, Internet Protocol address, email address, account name, or other similar identifiers.

B. Personal information categories listed in the California Customer Records statute (Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.80(e)).

A name, address, telephone number, education, employment, employment history, bank account number, credit card number, debit card number, or any other financial information.

Some Covered Personal Information included in this category may overlap with other categories.

D. Commercial information.

Records of personal property, products or services purchased, obtained, or considered, or other purchasing or consuming histories or tendencies.

F. Internet or other similar network activity.

Browsing history, search history, information on a consumer’s interaction with a website, application, or advertisement.

G. Geolocation data.

Physical location or movements.

L. Sensitive Personal Information

Information that is not publicly available and reveals account log-in number in combination with any required security or access code, password, or credentials allowing access to an account.

Covered Personal Information does not include:

  • Publicly available information from government records.
  • Deidentified or aggregated consumer information.
  • Information or organizations excluded from the CCPA’s scope as set forth in the law.

We will only use deidentified or aggregated consumer information in deidentified form and will not attempt to reidentify the information, except as is required by law, and will contractually obligate any recipients of such deidentified or aggregated consumer information to follow the same requirements. 

 

Use of Covered Personal Information

We may use or disclose the Covered Personal Information we collect for the business purposes described in the General Privacy Notice.

We limit the collection of Covered Personal Information to what is adequate, relevant, and reasonably necessary in relation to the purposes for which the Covered Personal Information is processed. We may process the Covered Personal Information we collect, for one or more of the purposes described in the General Privacy Notice. We will not process Covered Personal Information for purposes that are neither reasonably necessary to nor compatible with the purposes for which the Covered Personal Information is processed as described in the General Privacy Notice without your consent.

 

Sources of Covered Personal Information

We obtain the categories of Covered Personal Information listed above directly from you, or automatically when you use or interact with our Websites.

 

Sensitive Personal Information

We collect Sensitive Personal Information solely to enable you to login and access our Websites. We do not use Sensitive Personal Information for an incompatible purpose.

 

Disclosing Covered Personal Information

We may disclose your Covered Personal Information to a third party for a business purpose. When we disclose Covered Personal Information for a business purpose, we generally enter into a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep that Covered Personal Information confidential, maintain reasonable security to protect the Covered Personal Information, and not use the Covered Personal Information for any purpose except performing the contract.

In the preceding twelve (12) months, we have disclosed all of the above categories of personal information collected for a business purpose to third party vendors who provide marketing, payment processing, and other services to us.

Company neither “sells” Covered Personal Information for monetary or other consideration nor “shares” Covered Personal Information for cross-context behavioral advertising (whether or not for monetary or other valuable consideration).

 

Automated Decision Making

We do not use your Covered Personal Information with any automated decision making process, including profiling, which may produce a legal effect concerning you or similarly significantly affect you.

 

Data Security

We have implemented measures designed to secure your Covered Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to our services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your Covered Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your Covered Personal Information transmitted to our Websites. Any transmission of Covered Personal Information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Websites.

 

Your Rights and Choices

The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their Covered Personal Information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights

To the extent you provide us with your Covered Personal Information and to the extent we process the Covered Personal Information by automated means, you have the right to request that we provide you a copy of, or access to, all or part of such Covered Personal Information in portable, and to the extent technically feasible, readily usable format that allows you to transmit the Covered Personal Information to another entity without hindrance.

We will provide Covered Personal Information to you that was collected beyond 12 months before the request unless providing such information is impossible or would involve a disproportionate effort. Once we receive and verify your request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will disclose to you:

  • The categories of Covered Personal Information we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources for the Covered Personal Information we collected about you.
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting that Covered Personal Information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that Covered Personal Information.
  • The specific pieces of Covered Personal Information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
  • If we sold or disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing:
    • “sales” for monetary or other valuable consideration and “sharing” for cross-context behavioral advertising (whether or not for monetary or other valuable consideration), identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient received; and
  • disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that we delete any of your Covered Personal Information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will delete (and direct our service providers and/or contractors to delete) your Covered Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers and/or contractors to:

  1. Complete the transaction for which we collected the Covered Personal Information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
  2. Detect bugs or errors in our Website or service, detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
  3. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
  4. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  5. Comply with a legal obligation.
  6. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information are permitted by law or that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

Correction Rights

You can review and change your Covered Personal Information by logging into the Websites and visiting your “Account” page. You may also notify us through a verifiable consumer request as described below of any changes or errors in any Covered Personal Information we have about you to ensure that it is complete, accurate, and as current as possible. We may not be able to accommodate your request if we believe it would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

Exercising Access, Correction, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, correction, data portability, correction, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by emailing us at privacyinquiry@mgrc.com or contacting us at 1-800-548-0814.

Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf (an “Authorized Agent”), may make a verifiable consumer request related to your Covered Personal Information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

Please note that we are not obligated to provide information to a consumer in response to a request more than twice in a twelve (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 Covered Personal Information. Before completing your request to exercise the below, we will verify that the request came from you based on information we have for you in our records, or though some other method in compliance with the CCPA.
  • 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 Covered Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Covered Personal Information relates to you. With few exceptions, we will only review and fulfill a request from your Authorized Agent if (a) you grant the Authorized Agent written permission to make a request on your behalf, (b) you or the Authorized Agent provides us notice of that written permission, and (c) we are able to verify your and the Authorized Agent’s identity in connection with that notice and the request.

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

We will only use Covered 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.

If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the twelve (12) month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. 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 Covered 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 provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Non-Discrimination

You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA. However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your Covered Personal Information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.

Other California Privacy Rights

For California residents, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to request information regarding the disclosure of your personal information, as that term is defined in Section 1798.83, to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, you may contact us by emailing us at privacyinquiry@mgrc.com.

At this time, the Company does not honor “Do Not Track” signals. 

 

Retention of Covered Personal Information

If you create an account with us, we will retain your Covered Personal Information for the entire time that you keep your account open. After you close your account (or if you have not created an account), we may retain your Covered Personal Information for any of the following reasons, whichever is longer: (a) fulfill the purposes for which it was collected and for legal or business requirements; (b) in our backup and disaster recovery systems in accordance with our backup policies and procedures; or (c) for as long as necessary to protect our legal interests or otherwise pursue our legal rights and remedies.

We retain data that has been aggregated or otherwise rendered anonymous in such a manner that you are no longer identifiable, indefinitely.

 

Changes to This California Privacy Addendum

Company reserves the right to amend this California Privacy Addendum at our discretion and at any time. When we make changes to this California Privacy Addendum, we will post the updated addendum on the Websites and update the addendum’s effective date. Your continued use of our Websites following the posting of changes constitutes your acceptance of such changes.

 

Contact Information

If you have any questions or comments about this California Privacy Addendum, the ways in which Company collects and uses your information described above and in the General Privacy Notice, your choices and rights regarding such use, or wish to exercise your rights under California law, please do not hesitate to contact us by emailing us at privacyinquiry@mgrc.com.
