In other instances, we may decline to honor your request where an exception applies, such as where the disclosure of personal information would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of another consumer or where the personal information that we maintain about you is not subject to the CCPA. Nonetheless, you have the right to be free from unlawful discrimination for exercising your rights under the CCPA.
Responding to Requests
Privacy and data protection laws, other than the CCPA, apply to much of the Personal Information that we collect, use, and disclose. When these laws apply, Personal Information may be exempt from, or outside the scope of, Access Requests and Deletion Requests. As a result, in some instances, we may decline all or part of an Access Request or Deletion Request related to this Personal Information. This means that we may not provide some or all of this Personal Information when you make an Access Request. Also, we may not delete some or all of this Personal Information when you make a Deletion Request.
As examples, our processing of or response to an Access Request or Deletion Request may not include some or all of the following Personal Information:
- Consumer Accounts. Personal Information connected with consumer accounts used for personal, family, or household purposes. We have other privacy notices describing use and sharing of this data, for example, the Federal Privacy Notice, available at calcoastcu.org/privacy.
- Employment.Personal Information about an individual who is a current or former employee or job applicant, and we use that Personal Information within the context of that individual’s role as a current or former employee or job applicant.
- Business-to-Business Relationships. Certain Personal Information we collect in the course of providing a product or service to another business, or in the course of receiving a product or service from another business.
The types of Personal Information described above are examples. We have not listed all types of Personal Information that may not be included when we respond to or process Access Requests or Deletion Requests.
In addition to the above examples, we may not include Personal Information when we respond to or process Access Requests or Deletion Requests when the CCPA recognizes another exception. For example, we will not provide the Personal Information about another individual where doing so would adversely affect the data privacy rights of that individual. As another example, we will not delete Personal Information when it is necessary to maintain that Personal Information to comply with a legal obligation.
