Transfer of information to other countries
Mineral is headquartered in the United States and we have operations and vendors in the United States and other countries. Therefore, we and those that perform work for us may transfer your personal information to, or store or access it in, jurisdictions that may not provide levels of data protection that are equivalent to those of your home jurisdiction. Where required by law, we provide adequate protection for the transfer of personal data in accordance with applicable law, such as by relying on the European Commission’s adequacy decisions, or executing Standard Contractual Clauses. Where relevant, you may request a copy of these Standard Contractual Clauses by contacting us at email@example.com.
Additional information for California residents
Some US state privacy laws like the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) require specific disclosures for state residents. If you reside in California, this section applies to you.
We do not “share” your personal information as that term is defined in the CCPA.
We do not process “sensitive personal information” (as that term is defined in the CCPA) for purposes other than the permitted purposes identified in the CCPA regulations.
We may also de-identify personal information about you so that the information can no longer be linked to you. When we de-identify personal information, we maintain policies and technical measures to avoid re-identifying that information .
State laws like the CCPA also provide the right to request information about how we collect, use, and disclose your information. And they give you the right to access and correct your information, and to request that we delete that information. Finally, the CCPA provides the right to not be discriminated against for exercising these privacy rights.
You can submit a request by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will verify your request by asking you to provide information that matches information we have on file about you. You can also designate an authorized agent to exercise these rights on your behalf, but we will require proof that the person is authorized to act on your behalf and may also still ask you to verify your identity with us directly. If you have questions or requests related to your rights under the CCPA, or if you want to exercise a right to appeal a decision we made on your request, you (or your authorized agent) can also contact us at email@example.com.
