On January 1, 2020, California’s new privacy law, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), became effective. The CCPA provides rights to California residents regarding how their data is collected, held, processed, licensed, and sold. This data includes California residents’ “Personal Information,” which the CCPA defines as information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. Subject to certain restrictions, residents of California have the right, among others, to know what of their Personal Information is sold or disclosed to third parties, the right to access their Personal Information that businesses have collected, the right to opt-out of the sale of their Personal Information, and the right to delete their Personal Information.
PointsKash takes data collection and privacy seriously. As such, in an effort to be transparent about PointsKash’s data collection practices, and despite the fact that the CCPA only applies to California residents, the rights afforded under the CCPA are rights that any PointsKash user in any state can choose to exercise. Each of these rights can be exercised by requesting in an email to privacy@pointsKash.com.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
PointsKash collects a variety of information that may be considered Personal Information. In particular, PointsKash has collected the following from its consumers within the last twelve (12) months:
CATEGORIES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION POINTSKASH COLLECTS ON SAVERS:
CATEGORIES OF SOURCES FROM WHICH POINTSKASH COLLECTS PERSONAL INFORMATION:
CATEGORIES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION (AGGREGATED OR DEIDENTIFIED) POINTSKASH SELLS TO THIRD PARTIES:
CATEGORIES OF THIRD PARTIES TO WHOM POINTSKASH SELLS PERSONAL INFORMATION (AGGREGATED OR DEIDENTIFIED):

EXERCISING RIGHTS UNDER THE CCPA
To exercise any of the rights under the CCPA, please submit a verifiable request to us by emailing privacy@pointsKash.com. Only you, or a person authorized to submit a verifiable request on your behalf pursuant to the law of the State in which you live, may make a verifiable request related to your Personal Information.
RIGHT TO OPT-OUT
You have the right to direct PointsKash to not sell your Personal Information to third parties at any time. This is referred to as the “right to opt out.” As discussed above, PointsKash only sells aggregates or deidentified data to third parties. If you choose to opt-out of the sharing of your anonymized information, PointsKash will no longer send your anonymized and/or de-identified information to third parties. You can choose, at any time, to opt back into the sale of your anonymized and/or de-identified information. To opt-out of (or opt back in to) the sharing of your anonymized and/or deidentified information with third parties, please email PointsKash and request so at firstname.lastname@example.org
RIGHT TO KNOW
You have the right to receive information about the types of Personal Information that PointsKash sells or discloses to third parties. This is referred to as the “right to know.” Specifically, this right allows users to ask PointsKash (a) what are the categories of Personal Information that PointsKash collects about me? (b) what are the categories of my Personal Information that PointsKash sells to third parties? (c) what are the categories of third parties that PointsKash sells this information to, and (d) what are the categories of Personal Information that are disclosed to third parties for a business purpose? Each of these four questions must be answered by PointsKash when you exercise your right to know. PointsKash will disclose this information to you within 45 days of you exercising your right to know. If you choose to exercise this right, you will receive both an email confirming PointsKash’s receipt of your request, and a follow-up email with the information addressing these questions. To exercise your right to know, please email PointsKash at email@example.com.
RIGHT TO NON-DISCRIMINATION
You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment if you exercise your rights under the CCPA. If you exercise your rights under the CCPA, PointsKash will not do any of the following: (a) deny you any goods or services; (b) charge you a different price or rate for PointsKash’s goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or by imposing penalties; (c) provide to you a different level or quality of goods or services; or (d) suggest to you that you will receive a different price or rate for PointsKash’s goods or services or a different level or quality of PointsKash’s goods or services.
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 Personal Information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material terms. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
California’s “Shine the Light” law (CA Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our website who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please email PointsKash at firstname.lastname@example.org.
RIGHT TO ACCESS
You have the right to request access to all categories of Personal Information that PointsKash has collected about you, and all the specific pieces of Personal Information that PointsKash has collected about you through your use of the PointsKash Services. This is referred to as the “right to access.” If you choose to exercise this right, you will receive both an email confirming PointsKash’s receipt of your request, and a follow-up email with the information addressing these questions. PointsKash must also, whether you exercise your rights or not, disclose to you (a) the categories of Personal Information collected about you, (b) the purposes for which your Personal Information is used, and (c) refrain from collecting or using additional categories of Personal Information about you without proper notice. If you exercise this right, the information that PointsKash provides to you will be in a portable and readily readable format. To exercise your right to access, please email PointsKash at email@example.com.
RIGHT TO DELETE
You have the right to request that PointsKash delete all the Personal Information it has collected from you, subject to certain exceptions for business purposes. This is referred to as the “right to deletion.” However, when you do exercise this right, please know that your user experience within the app will look different and any personalization will be lost. PointsKash will not be able to send you targeted offers for items that may be of interest to you and you may not receive personalized recommendations or emails.
Also, when you exercise your right to deletion, any cash back rewards that are pending approval (if any) in your PointsKash account at the time of deletion will be deleted, and you will lose those pending rewards. In addition, your total lifetime earnings will be reset to the amount of Cash Back rewards in your PointsKash account at the time of deletion. For all intents and purposes, when you exercise the right to deletion, you will thereafter be treated as a new PointsKash user; you will, of course, retain in your PointsKash account any Cash Back rewards you previously earned and are not pending approval, but all other personalization within the app up to that date may be irrevocably lost. To exercise your right to deletion, please email PointsKash at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
