The content of this section is aimed solely at providing California residents with relevant information under the California Consumer Protection Act (“CCPA”), and may be subject to change. It must be construed in addition and not in lieu of the full Policy.
The CCPA, which is effective as of January 1, 2020, regulates how we handle personal information of California residents and gives California residents certain rights with respect to their personal information.
When it provides the Services, PARKLU is both a “Business” and a “Service Provider” under the CCPA.
If you are a PARKLU customer, under the CCPA you are considered a “Business” and PARKLU is the “Service Provider” in most cases. As such, we are responsible for processing the Personal Information our Service captures on your Account and is stored on our servers.
Although we do not sell personal information in exchange for any monetary consideration, the CCPA defines a sale in a way that may include allowing third parties to receive certain combined Personal Information such as, depending on how you use the Services, when we are sharing device information (such as browser type and version, operating system, preference settings, unique device IDs and language and other regional settings) and identifiers (names, job titles, IP address, email address), commercial information (such as record of the Services purchased or demos requested), usage information and Internet activity such as browsing history (clicks, scrolling, browsing times and load times) or app usage, cookie information and customer feedback with website analytics companies and providers of customer relationship management, consulting, email, product feedback services and security and other operations vendors.
We do share Personal Information as necessary for certain business purposes, as defined by the CCPA (Cal. Civ. Code 1798.140(d)) and as described above and in the section “How Do We Use the Data Collected?” of this Policy.
California residents may opt out of the sale of their Personal Information. While PARKLU does not sell personal information in exchange for any monetary consideration, we do share personal information for other benefits that could be deemed a “sale,” as defined by the CCPA. We wish to provide you with control over how your Personal Information is collected and shared.
