Subject to certain exceptions, you have the right to request that we delete any of all of your personal information that we collected from you and retained over the past twelve (12) months. Please bear in mind that deletion of your personal information may not allow BeneSys to continue to provide the Services to you.  Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers or contractors to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. Additionally, upon receiving a verifiable consumer request, we will notify all third parties to whom BeneSys Inc. has shared such personal information to delete the consumer’s personal information, unless doing so is proven to be impossible or involves disproportionate effort.  You may request that only a portion of your information be deleted.

We may deny all or part of your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:

·         Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated based on our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our agreement with you

·         Help to ensure security and integrity to the extent the use of the consumer’s personal information is reasonably necessary and proportionate for those purposes.

·         Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality

·         Exercise free speech or ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their right of free speech or other right provided for by law

·         Engage in public or peer reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research that conforms or adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the business’s deletion of the information is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the ability to complete such research, if the consumer has provided informed consent

·         To enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with the expectations of the consumer based on the consumer’s relationship with the business and compatible with the context in which the consumer provided the information

·         Comply with a law or a legal obligation

BeneSys Inc. may maintain a confidential record of deletion requests solely for the purpose of preventing the personal information of a consumer who has submitted a deletion request from being sold, for compliance with other laws, or for other purposes solely to the extent permissible under the CPRA.

3.      The Right to Opt-Out of the Sharing of Your Personal Information “DO NOT SELL OR SHARE MY INFORMATION”

The CCPA and CPRA provide you with the right to opt out and stop businesses from selling or sharing your personal information.  This right applies to all California consumers ages 16 or older and may be exercised at any time.

The right to opt out of sharing personal information includes sharing with a third party even when there is no exchange of consideration between the parties. This can include the right to opt out of BeneSys Inc. using technologies like cookies and pixels to track you across other websites, apps, or services that then share that information with ad networks to deliver targeted advertisements to you.

If you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right to direct us to not share your personal information at any time (the “right to opt-out”). Our websites and products are not intended for minors. We do not sell or share the personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization to sell or share (the “right to opt-in”) from either the consumer who is at least 13 but not yet 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age. Consumers who opt-in to personal information sharing may opt-out of future sharing at any time.

How to exercise this right:

·         By contacting BeneSys Inc. at the toll free number: (888) 659 – 8789; or

·         By sending an email to the following address: corporate.compliance@benesys.com, providing specific details of your request

 

Do Not Track:

We do not track our customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Tract (DNT) signals.

 

4.      The Right to Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA or CPRA rights, and will not engage in the following behaviors:

·         Denying you goods or services

·         Charging you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties

·         Providing you a different level or quality of goods or services

·         Suggesting that you will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services

·         Retaliating against an employee, applicant for employment, or independent contractor as defined under the CPRA, for exercising their rights under the CPRA.

When you exercise these rights and submit a request to us, we will verify your identity by asking for information about your relationship with BeneSys Inc., such as an email address on file or other methods of verification as allowed under the CCPA and CPRA.

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.

5.      The Right to Correct Inaccurate Personal Information

Or by calling us at the following toll-free number: (888) 659-8789.

Our use and disclosure of your SPI is limited to those uses which are necessary to perform the Services reasonably expected by an average consumer who requests such Services, including the following Services:

BeneSys only uses SPI to provide the Services.  As such, the use of your SPI is already limited to uses in furtherance of the provision of our Services to you, as we do not use it for other non-Services related purposes.  As such, since use of your SPI is already limited to the provision of the Services to you and not used for any other purpose, your right to limit the use of your SPI to the provision of Services is already attained and exercised.

7.  Right Against Automated Decision Making

Automated decision-making takes place when an electronic system uses personal data to make a decision without human intervention. You will not be subject to decisions that will have a significant impact on you based solely on automated decision-making, unless we have a lawful basis for doing so and we have notified you. We do not foresee that any decisions will be taken about you using automated means, however we will notify you if this position changes.
