For California, Colorado, Connecticut, Utah and Virginia residents: Depending on your state of residency, these Additional U.S. Privacy Disclosures (the “U.S. Privacy Disclosures”) supplement the information contained in our Privacy Notice above by providing additional information about how Camso Inc. (“Camso”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) processes personal data and apply solely to individual residents of the State of California, Colorado, Connecticut, Utah, and Virginia (“data subjects” or “you”).
These U.S. Privacy Disclosures provide additional information about how we collect, use, disclose and otherwise process personal data of individual residents of the State of California, Colorado, Connecticut, Utah, and Virginia, in connection with our websites (the “Sites”) and other websites we own and operate that link to these U.S. Privacy Disclosures, and the related content, platform, services, products, and other functionality offered on or through our services (collectively, the “Services”).
Unless otherwise expressly stated, all terms in these U.S. Privacy Disclosures have the same meaning as defined in our Privacy Notice.
When we use the term “personal data” in these U.S. Privacy Disclosures, we mean any data or information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular natural person or household or any other data or information that constitutes “personal data”, “personal information,” or “personally identifiable information.”
We collect various categories and types of personal data from a variety of sources and for a variety of purposes. We also disclose personal data to a number of recipients. Please review Section 4 (“Information we may collect from you”), Section 6 (“Information we collect about you from other places”), and Section 7 (“Sharing your personal information”) of our Privacy Notice to learn more.
We disclose or otherwise make available personal data for the purpose of displaying advertisements that are selected based on personal data obtained or inferred over time from an individual’s activities across businesses or distinctly branded websites, applications, or other services (otherwise known as “targeted advertising” or “cross-context behavioral advertising”), as well as to provide advertising-related services such as reporting, attribution, analytics, and market research. Some of these practices may involve the “sale” of personal data, or the sharing or processing of personal data, for the purpose of facilitating targeted advertising. Depending on your state of residency and subject to certain legal limitations and exceptions, you may be able to limit or opt-out of the sale of personal data or the processing of personal data for purposes of targeted advertising (as described in the “Your Privacy Rights” section below).
The following personal data elements we collect may be classified as “sensitive” under certain privacy laws (“sensitive information”):
As described in our Privacy Notice, we use account name and password, as well as payment card information to provide certain of our products and services.
We do not sell sensitive information, and we do not process or otherwise share sensitive information for the purpose of targeted advertising.
We may at times receive, or process personal data to create, deidentified information that can no longer reasonably be used to infer information about, or otherwise be linked to, a particular individual or household. Where we maintain deidentified information, we will maintain and use the information in deidentified form and not attempt to reidentify the information except as required or permitted by law.
Your Privacy Rights
Depending on your state of residency and subject to certain legal limitations and exceptions, you may be able to exercise some or all the following rights:
The Right to Know
The right to confirm whether we are processing personal data about you and, under California law only, to obtain certain personalized details about the personal data we have collected about you, including:
The Right to Access & Portability
The right to obtain access to the personal data we have collected about you and, where required by law, the right to obtain a copy of the personal data in a portable and, to the extent technically feasible, readily usable format that allows you to transmit the data to another entity without hindrance.
The Right to Correction
The right to correct inaccuracies in your personal data, taking into account the nature of the personal data and the purposes of the processing of the personal data.

The right to request the deletion of personal data that we maintain about you, subject to certain exceptions.
Depending on your state of residency, you may also have the right not to receive retaliatory or discriminatory treatment in connection with a request to exercise the above rights. However, please note that the exercise of the rights described above limits our ability to process personal data (such as in the case of a deletion request), we may no longer be able to provide you our products or services or engage with you in the same manner. In addition, the exercise of the rights described above may result in a different price, rate, or quality level of product or service where that difference is reasonably related to the impact the right has on our relationship or is otherwise permitted by law.
How to Exercise Your Privacy Rights
Please submit a request by:
For certain requests, we will need to verify your identity and confirm you are a resident of a state that offers the requested right(s) before processing your request. To verify your identity, we will generally either require the successful login to your account or the matching of sufficient information you provide us to the information we maintain about you in our systems. As a result, we require requests to include name, email address, and state of residency. Although we try to limit the personal data collected in connection with a request to exercise any of the above rights, certain requests may require us to obtain additional personal data from you. In certain circumstances, we may decline a request, particularly where we are unable to verify your identity or locate your information in our systems, or where you are not a resident of one of the eligible states.
To Exercise the Right to Opt Out of the Selling, Sharing or Processing of Personal Data for Targeted Advertising Purposes
We may sell or share personal data (including Identifiers, Commercial Information, Internet/Network Information, and Inferences) to certain third-party ad networks, social networks and advertising partners to deliver targeted advertising (also known as “cross-context behavioral advertising”) and personalized content to you on our Sites and Services, on other sites and services you may use, and across other devices you may use, as well as to provide advertising-related services such as reporting, attribution, analytics, and market research.
The third parties to whom we sell or share personal data may use such information for their own purposes, in accordance with their own privacy statements, which may include reselling or sharing this information to additional third parties.
Please note these cookie options may be unchecked or opted out by default. In addition, this opt out tool is device and browser specific, so you will need to change your preferences on each device and browser you use to interact with the Site or Service you are visiting.
You can also opt out of cookie-based sales by businesses that participate in the DAA’s CCPA Opt-Out Tool by visiting https://www.privacyrights.info/.

Lastly, you may exercise your non-cookie-related rights by following the instructions provided at the beginning of this “How to Exercise Your Privacy Rights” section.
In certain circumstances, you are permitted to use an authorized agent to submit requests on your behalf through the designated methods set forth above where we can verify the authorized agent’s authority to act on your behalf. To verify the authorized agent’s authority, we generally require evidence of either (i) a valid power of attorney or (ii) a signed letter containing your name and contact information, the name and contact information of the authorized agent, and a statement of authorization for the request. Depending on the evidence provided and your state of residency, we may still need to separately reach out to you to confirm the authorized agent has permission to act on your behalf and to verify your identity in connection with the request.
Appealing Privacy Rights Decisions
