CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

Under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA“), California residents have certain rights around GoShare’s collection, use, and sharing of their personal information.

GoShare does not sell your personal information and will not do so in the future without providing you with notice and an opportunity to opt-out of such sale as required by law. Similarly, we do not offer financial incentives associated with our collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information.

GoShare collects various categories of personal information when you use the Service, including identifiers, commercial information, the Internet or other electronic network or device activity information, geolocation data, and professional information. A more detailed description of the information GoShare collects and how we use it is provided above. This webpage also describes the categories of third parties with whom we share personal information, and what information may be shared under different circumstances.

If you are a resident of California, you have the right to request to know what personal information has been collected about you, and to access that information. You also have the right to request deletion of your personal information, though exceptions under the CCPA may allow GoShare to retain and use certain personal information notwithstanding your deletion request. You can access your data any time by signing into your GoShare account.  You may also send your request using our contact us page. You can also call the toll free number below. Please include “CCPA Data Request” in the Subject line of the contact form. We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under the CCPA. An agent may submit a request on your behalf, but you must verify that your agent is authorized to do so. Agents should send requests via the contact us page. Please include “CCPA Data Request” in the Subject line of the contact form, indicate that you are an agent in the Description and let us know who you are representing in the Description.

Separate from the CCPA, California’s Shine the Light law gives California residents the right to ask companies what personal information they share with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes. We do not disclose your personal information to third parties for the purpose of directly marketing their goods or services to you unless you request such disclosure. If you have any questions regarding this policy, or would like to change your preferences, you may contact us at the address listed above.
