CCPA

LAST UPDATED: JULY 30, 2020

This California Consumer Privacy Act Notice (“Notice”) is provided by the Biz Focused companies described below. These companies are referred to in this Notice as “we” or “us.”


This Notice explains how we collect, use, and disclose personal information about California residents. The Notice also explains certain rights that California residents may have under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). This Notice explains how California residents can exercise their rights under the CCPA to request that we: (1) provide certain personal information that we have collected about them during the past 12 months, along with related information described below, or (2) delete certain personal information that we have collected from them.


The CCPA only applies to information about residents of California. If you are not a resident of California, you may submit a request and we will still process it, as described in this Notice, even though the CCPA does not require us to do so. In accepting, processing, and responding to requests by individuals who are not California residents, we will apply all of the same limitations and exceptions under the CCPA to those requests as apply to requests made by California residents. We reserve the right to change or stop the practice of accepting requests from individuals who are not California residents at any time and without prior notice.
