How We Store and Protect Your Information
- After receiving your PII, we will store it on our servers for future use. We have physical, electronic, and managerial procedures in place to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet or data storage solution can ever be completely secure. As a result, although we take industry-standard steps to protect your information (e.g., strong encryption), we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or receive from us or that we store on our or our service providers’ systems.

We store our logs and other technical records indefinitely.
- To enhance your online experience with us, our web pages may use “cookies.” Cookies are text files that our web server may place on your hard disk to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your email address or other PII unless you choose to provide this information to us. Once you choose to provide PII, however, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. Certain features of the Services may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
- ProDeal360 or our service providers may also use “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (collectively, “Pixel Tags”) in connection with some ProDeal360 Site pages and HTML-formatted email messages for purposes of, among other things, compiling aggregate statistics about website usage and response rates. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel (1×1), that is ordinarily not visible to website visitors and may be associated with cookies on visitors’ hard drives. Pixel Tags allow us and our service providers to count users who have visited certain pages of the ProDeal360 Site, to deliver customized services, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, Pixel Tags can inform the sender of the email whether and when the email has been opened.
- As you use the internet, you leave a trail of electronic information at each website you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to as “clickstream data”, can be collected and stored by a website’s server. Clickstream data can reveal the type of computer and browsing software you use and the address of the website from which you linked to the ProDeal360 Site. We may use clickstream data as a form of non-personally identifiable information to determine how much time visitors spend on each page of our Site, how visitors navigate through the Site, and how we may tailor our web pages to better meet the needs of visitors.

Description of a California Consumer’s Rights under the CCPA
Under the CCPA, Consumers have certain rights regarding their Personal Information.
- California consumers have the right to request that we disclose personal information we have collected about them in the previous 12 months including, but not limited to, the categories of information collected by us, the source(s) of such information by category, and the purpose for collecting such information. This right may not be exercised more than twice in a 12 month period. In the previous 12 months, we have collected the following categories of personal information about consumers
- Personal Information Under the California Customer Records Law (Cal. Civ. Code §1798.80) (“CCRLPI”);
- Internet/Network Activity. Internet Activity Information includes browsing history, cookies, search history and a consumer’s interaction with a website;

We collect the Personal Information from you/the consumer, third parties, and by automatic means. Such Personal Information is collected in order to provide the Service and as otherwise described in “How Do We Use the PII That We Collect” Section above.
- As a California consumer, you also have the right to request that we tell you which of your Personal Information we have disclosed for a business purpose, or sold, in the previous 12 months. With respect to Personal Information being disclosed for a business purpose, the consumer shall receive the categories of information disclosed and the types of entities they have been disclosed to. This right may not be exercised more than twice in a 12 month period. For Personal Information being sold, this includes the categories of information being sold and the categories of third parties to whom it is being sold.
In the past 12 months, we have disclosed Personal Information falling under the following categories of personal information: Identifiers; CCRLPI; Internet/Network Activity; Geolocation Data; and User Content. We disclose the Personal Information in the preceding categories to the consumers themselves, to other parties as the consumer may direct, our service providers, third parties, other users, government/law enforcement agencies, and/or successor(s) in interest. This information is disclosed to comply with your directions, for the provision of the Services, to comply with applicable law, and/or our legitimate business purposes.

- You also have the right to request the deletion of Personal Information that we have collected from you at any time. However, we may not be required to comply with such request under several circumstances including, but not limited to, when the data is necessary for the underlying transaction, to comply with applicable law, to detect security incidents, to debug glitches, and for our internal purposes.
- In the event that you exercise one of your rights under the CCPA, you have the right to not be discriminated against by us in any way, including, but not limited to charging you different prices for the Service.
How do you exercise your rights under the CCPA?
Because we offer the Services exclusively online, you may submit requests to exercise your rights under the CCPA by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, please include “Request for Privacy Information” in the subject line.
We will acknowledge receipt of your request within 10 days of receiving it, and will do our very best to respond within 45 days of receipt of your request, and in no event will our response come more than 90 days after your request. If we are unable to provide our response within the first 45 day window, we shall notify you as soon as we become aware of the possible delay and provide an explanation of why additional time is needed to respond.
Before we respond to any CCPA based requests relating to your personal information, we will take steps to reasonably verify the identity of the person making the request (“Requestor”) to make sure it’s you, or your authorized agent. We do this to this avoid disclosing your information to third parties and bad actors, not to inconvenience you in any way. To do this, we will ask the Requestor to confirm at least two pieces of information that we have in our files. As the sensitivity of the information being requested goes up, we will ask the Requestor to confirm more pieces of information. If an agent is acting on behalf of the consumer, we will need to also verify the agent’s identity and their authority to act on the consumer’s behalf. For requests to delete information, after verification, we will confirm the consumer’s desire to delete one final time before actually deleting the information. If the identity of the Requestor cannot be reasonably verified, either as the consumer or their agent, then in order to protect that consumer, we shall not disclose the personal information requested.
