CCPA Privacy Notice

Applicability

This California Consumer Privacy Act Disclosure explains how Field Nation collects, uses and discloses personal information relating to California residents covered by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA).  We are providing this CCPA-specific privacy notice to supplement the information and disclosures already contained in our Privacy Policy.

Introduction

Under the CCPA, “Personal Information” is information that identifies, relates to, or could reasonably be linked directly or indirectly with a particular California resident. The specific Personal Information that we collect, use, and disclose relating to a California resident covered by the CCPA will vary based on our relationship or interaction with that individual.

Keeping Personal Information secure is one of our most important priorities. Consistent with our obligations under applicable laws and regulations, we maintain physical, technical, electronic, procedural and organizational safeguards and security measures that are designed to protect personal data against accidental, unlawful, or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure, or access, whether it is processed by us or by application service providers that we use to support our business.
