When we say “personal information” or “personal data,” we mean information that identifies you or can reasonably be linked to you or your household. Non-personal information, on the other hand, has been anonymized or aggregated such that it cannot be linked to a particular individual or household.

Residents of California and Virginia may have additional rights under their states’ laws, as described below.
International Data Transfers
We operate our information technology systems, including our websites, from the United States. Any information you provide to us may be stored and processed, transferred between and accessed from the United States (including our group companies and our external IT service providers), and other countries which may not guarantee the same level of protection of personal information as the one in which you reside. However, we will handle your personal information in accordance with this Policy regardless of where your personal information is stored/accessed. Where required by certain jurisdictions, we will transfer your information subject to jurisdiction-approved safeguards, such as standard contractual clauses.
We are very concerned about protecting the privacy of children. We do not intend to collect any personal information from children under 13 years old or knowingly distribute such information. Children under 13 are not permitted to use the Services, and we request that children under 13 not submit any personal information. If you have reason to believe that a child has provided personal information to us, please contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases.
We maintain reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information from accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.
Despite these efforts, however, no organization can fully eliminate risks or guarantee the security of personal information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of information about you at any time, and we bear no liability for uses or disclosures of personal information or other data arising in connection with theft of the information or other malicious actions.
Content Submitted By You
Some features of the Services allow you to post content on our Services or social media pages, such as photos. Content that you provide may be shared publicly or with other users or third parties.
We retain personal data for as long as is necessary for the processing purpose(s) for which the data was collected, and any other permissible, related purpose. When we no longer need the personal information we collect, we either anonymize the information or securely destroy the information.
Under California’s “Shine the Light” law , California residents with whom we have an established business relationship are entitled to request and receive, free of charge, once per calendar year, information about the customer information we shared, if any, with other businesses for their own direct marketing uses in the previous calendar year. To request a copy, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be aware that not all information sharing is covered by the “Shine the Light” law requirements and only information on covered sharing, if any, will be included in our response.
The rest of this section makes additional disclosures to California residents (i.e., “consumers”), and describes rights they have, under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended.(the “CCPA”). If you apply for a job with us, please see our Privacy Notice to California Job Applicants. If you work for us, please see our Privacy Notice to California Employees.

Sale, Sharing or Disclosure of Personal Information
Under the CCPA, you can request to opt-out of the “Sale” of your Personal Information (which the CCPA defines very broadly to include some service arrangements that do not involve the exchange of data for money) and the “Sharing” of your Personal Information with third parties (which the CCPA defines as sharing for purposes of cross-site targeted advertising). In the past 12 months, we have Sold or Shared the following categories of Personal Information (to the categories of recipients listed):
• Identifiers (analytics and advertising partners)
• Internet or network activity (analytics and advertising partners)
We do not knowingly Sell or Share the Personal Information of individuals under the age of 16.

Your Rights as a Californian
California residents have the right to make the following requests to covered businesses. The requests may be made by a consumer, by a consumer on behalf of the consumer’s minor child, or by a person authorized by the consumer to act on the consumer’s behalf.
Right To Request Information About Collection, Disclosure, Sale or Sharing
You have the right to request that a business disclose to you: (i) the categories and specific pieces of Personal Information the business has collected about you within the past 12 months, (ii) the categories of sources from which the Personal Information is collected, (iii) the business or commercial purposes for collecting, Selling or Sharing Personal Information, and (iv) the categories of third parties to whom the business discloses Personal Information.
If a business Sells or Shares Personal Information, or discloses it for a business purpose, you also have the right to request that the business disclose the following with respect to the 12-month period preceding your request: (i) the categories of Personal Information that the business Sold or Shared about you and the categories of third parties to whom the Personal Information was Sold or Shared, and (ii) the categories of Personal Information that the business disclosed about you for a business purpose.
This type of request may be referred to as a “Request to Know.” Before we can honor a Request to Know, we need to verify that the person making it is the consumer whose Personal Information we have. Our method for verifying any particular request weighs information we receive as part of the request, the sensitivity of the consumer information at issue, and the risk of harm to the consumer from unauthorized disclosure.
Right to Request Deletion
You have the right to request that a business delete any Personal Information that the business has collected from you. This type of request may be referred to as a “Request to Delete.”
Before we can honor a Request to Delete, we need to verify that the person making the request is the consumer whose Personal Information we have. Our method for verifying any particular request weighs information we receive as part of the request, the sensitivity of the consumer information at issue, and the risk of harm to the consumer from unauthorized deletion.
We are not required to delete Personal Information if we still need it in order to complete the transaction for which the information was collected, provide a good or service requested by you (or that we reasonably anticipate based on our relationship with you), perform a contract with you, comply with a legal obligation, or accomplish any other objective recognized as an exception to the right to deletion under applicable law.
Right to Request Correction
You have the right to request that we correct inaccurate Personal Information about you. This type of request may be referred to as a “Request to Correct.”
Right to Opt-Out of Sale or Sharing
You have the right to direct a business that Sells or Shares Personal Information about you to third parties not to Sell or Share your Personal Information. This type of request may be referred to as a “Request to Opt-Out.”
Right to Limit Use and Disclosure of Sensitive Personal Information
If a business collects Sensitive Personal Information* for the purpose of inferring characteristics about you, you have the right to request that the business limit its use and disclosure of your Sensitive Personal Information to that use and disclosure which is necessary to perform the services or provide the goods reasonably expected by an average consumer who requests such goods and services. (Hylands does not collect Sensitive Personal Information for the purpose of inferring characteristics about consumers within the meaning of the CCPA.)
*Sensitive Personal Information includes social security number; driver’s license or state identification number; complete account log-in credentials; precise geolocation; racial or ethnic origin, religious or philosophical beliefs, or union membership; the contents of a consumer’s mail, email and text messages (unless the business is the intended recipient of the communication); genetic data; biometric information; health information; and information concerning sex life or sexual orientation.
Right to Non-Discrimination
You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by a business for the exercise of your privacy rights under the CCPA.

Notice of Financial Incentive
We offer our customers discounts that can be received when, for example, you sign up to receive our marketing materials and newsletters. We may also provide other programs, such as sweepstakes, contest, or other similar promotional campaigns (collectively, the “Programs”). When you sign up for one of these Programs, we typically ask you to provide your name and contact information (such as email address and/or telephone number). Because our Programs involve the collection of personal information, they might be interpreted as a “financial incentive” program under the CCPA. You can withdraw from a Program at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The value of your personal information to us is related to the value of the free or discounted products or services, or other benefits that you obtain or that are provided as part of the applicable Program, less our expenses related to offering those products, services, and benefits to Program participants.
Your Rights Under The CDPA
Virginia residents who interact with a business in a consumer context (as opposed to a business-to-business or employment context) have certain rights under Virginia’s Consumer Data Protection Act (“CDPA”), including:
• To confirm whether or not a business is processing the consumer’s Personal Information and to access such Personal Information;
• To correct inaccuracies in the consumer’s Personal Information;
• To delete Personal Information provided by or obtained about the consumer;
• To obtain a copy of the consumer’s Personal Information that the consumer previously provided to the business in a portable, and to the extent technically feasible, readily usable format that allows the consumer to transmit the data to another business without hindrance (if the data is processed by automated means)
• To opt out of the processing Personal Information for purposes of (i) targeted advertising, (ii) the sale of Personal Information, or (iii) profiling in furtherance of decisions that produce legally or similarly significant effects concerning the consumer.
