Effective Date: as of January 1, 2020

Kaufman, Hall and Associates, LLC ("Kaufman Hall" or "we") is pleased to present this Privacy Notice for California Residents (“Notice”), which supplements the information contained in the Privacy Policy and applies solely to all visitors, users, and others who reside in the State of California ("consumers" or "you"). This notice explains the categories of personal data that we collect from you and how we collect and use personal data that is subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (the “CCPA”). It further describes the rights that California residents have with respect to their personal data.

This Notice should be read together with the Privacy Policy, and in case of any conflict the terms of this addendum will prevail as to personal data of California residents that is subject to the CCPA. Any terms used in this Notice have the same meaning of any terms defined in the CCPA, including the term “personal data,” which includes all “personal information” as defined in the CCPA.

This Notice does not apply to employment-related personal information collected from California-based employees, job applicants, contractors, or similar individuals (see Kaufman Hall’s Privacy Policy). Where noted in this Notice, the CCPA temporarily exempts personal information reflecting a written or verbal business-to-business communication ("B2B personal information") from some of its requirements.

Your Rights and Choices

The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

  • Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights. You may have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we may disclose to you: (a) the categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you; (b) Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information, (c) the categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information, (d) The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request); (e) the categories of personal data disclosed for a business purpose or sold to third parties and the categories of third parties to whom such personal data was sold or disclosed. 

We do not provide these access and data portability rights for B2B personal information.

  • Deletion Request Rights. You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We do not provide these deletion rights for B2B personal information.

  • Non-Discrimination. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not: (a) Deny you goods or services; (b) Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties, (c) Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services; (c) Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services; (d) however, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels.
