We support data mapping and inventories of the Personal Data we collect about Registered Users (and their employers and/or devices) and internal processes and resources in place to be able to respond within 45 days to requests for access to or deletion of Personal Data submitted by our Registered Users. We do not knowingly collect any personal information from individuals under the age of 16.  As explained in Section 5 below, under the CCPA you may have the right to access portable copies of your personal information, copy and request deletion of specific pieces of Personal Data we collect. 

In the last twelve months, MGI Verified may have collected, used, and shared, for business purposes, Personal Data about you as described in this Privacy Policy.

4. Timely Processing 

MGI Verified shall retain Personal Data in a manner consistent with the applicable privacy and data protection laws and regulations. In any event, Personal Data shall not be kept longer than is necessary for the Purposes, unless the data are required to be kept longer by law. If MGI Verified is acting as a Data Processor, the duration of this term will be determined by the Data Controller.  

5. California Resident Rights

If you are a California resident, you have the additional rights outlined in this Section 5. If you are a California resident and there are conflicts between this Section 5 and any other provision of this Privacy Policy, the portion that is more protective of your Personal Data shall control. If you have any questions about this Section 5 or whether any of the following applies to you, please email us at support@mgiverfieid.com.  Your rights as a “Consumer” under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 ("CCPA") vary depending on whether MGI Verified acts as a “Service Provider” or a “Business,” as such terms are defined under the CCPA, with respect to your Personal Data. 

5.1. MGI Verified as Service Provider

The Services MGI Verified offers to its Customers are deemed “processing on behalf” of such 

Customers under the CCPA. Therefore, when MGI Verified provides Services to its Customers (i.e., “Businesses”), which determine the purposes and means of processing of your Personal 

Data, MGI Verified is acting as a Service Provider under the CCPA and is processing Personal 

Data on behalf of its Customers.  Our receipt and collection of any Personal Data related to Consumers is completed on behalf of our Customers in order for us to provide the Services. For example, if you are an end user of the Services, MGI Verified will be acting as a processor or sub-processor to the Customer (your vendor, employer or in any other contractual or statutory capacity) who has contracted to use our Services and therefore be classified as a Service Provider. 

We will assist our Customers by appropriate technical and organizational measures currently available to MGI Verified, insofar as this is possible, for the fulfilment of our Customers’ obligation to respond to legitimate Consumers’ requests under the CCPA. If MGI Verified receives a request from a Consumer directly, it will promptly notify the Customer so the Customer could take appropriate action with regards to the request. 

If you are a Consumer under the CCPA and believe that your Personal Data is being processed by us, you should direct any exercise of your Consumer data subject rights under the CCPA to our Customer on whose account you use or receive the benefit of the Services.  Please address any requests for access or deletion of your Personal Data and other inquiries under the CCPA directly to the Customer with whom you have a direct relationship.  If you contact us regarding information associated with a Customer, we may forward your requests or inquiries to the relevant Customer. 

5.2. MGI Verified as “Business”

If you are a “Consumer” as defined under the CCPA and in the instances where MGI Verified acts as a “Business” as defined under the CCPA and receives or collects your Personal Data from you directly and on its own determines the purposes and means of the processing of such Personal Data, then you have the right to exercise the following privacy rights under the CCPA: 

Access. You have the right to request certain information about our collection and use of your Personal Data over the past 12 months. We will provide you with the following information:

  • The categories of Personal Data that we have collected about you; 

  • The categories of sources from which that Personal Data was collected; 

  • The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling your Personal Data; 

  • The categories of third parties with whom we have shared your Personal Data; and 

  • The specific pieces of Personal Data that we have collected about you. 

However, please note that these rights are not absolute, and in certain cases we may decline your request as permitted by law. 

If we have disclosed your Personal Data for a business purpose over the past 12 months, we will identify the categories of Personal Data shared with each category of third-party recipient. 

If we have sold your Personal Data over the past 12 months, we will identify the categories of Personal Data purchased by each category of third-party recipient. 

5.3. You have the right to request that we delete the Personal Information that we have collected from you. Under the CCPA, this right is subject to certain exceptions. For example, we may need to retain your Personal Data to provide you with the Services or complete a transaction or other action you have requested. If your deletion request is subject to one of these exceptions, we may deny your deletion request. 

5.4. To exercise the rights described above, you must send us a request that (i) provides sufficient information to allow us to verify that you are the person about whom we have collected Personal Data (this will require you to send an email from the account in question, login credentials and/or government identification document), and (ii) describes your request in sufficient detail to allow us to understand, evaluate, and respond to it. Each request that meets both criteria will be considered a “Valid Request.” We may not respond to requests that do not meet these criteria. We will only use Personal Data provided in a Valid Request to verify your identity and eligibility and complete your request. You do not need an account to submit a Valid Request. 

If your identity and eligibility are successfully verified by us, your request will be processed, and we will work to respond to your Valid Request within 45 days of receipt of all required documentation from you. We will not charge you a fee for making a Valid Request unless your Valid Request(s) is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that your Valid Request warrants a fee, we will notify you of the fee and explain that decision before completing your request. 

You may submit a Valid Request by emailing us at support@mgiverified.com.   You may make a request to access your personal information twice within a 12month period. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the receipt of the request. 

You may also authorize an agent (an “Authorized Agent”) to exercise your rights on your behalf if you have provided written permission to the Authorized Agent, and if the Authorized Agent’s identity can be verified by us.  We may request a copy of this written permission from your Authorized Agent when it makes a request to exercise your rights on your behalf. 

5.5. No Discrimination for Exercising Your Rights Under the CCPA 

We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under the CCPA. We will not deny you our goods or services, charge you different prices or rates, or provide you a lower quality of goods and services if you exercise your rights under the CCPA. However, we may offer different tiers of our Services as allowed by applicable data privacy laws (including the CCPA) with varying prices, rates, or levels of quality of the goods or services you receive related to the value of Personal Data that we receive from you. 

6.  Data Security 

6.1. MGI Verified has adopted and implemented data-handling procedures that limit unnecessary access to and use of Personal Data, as well as technical security measures (like encryption) to reduce the chance of theft or breach.  We have also adopted storage limitations to remove, delete or anonymize data that is no longer necessary in order to protect the rights of our Registered Users.   

6.2. MGI Verified uses commercially reasonable technical, administrative, and physical controls best practices to protect your Personal Data including data encryption where appropriate; however, since the internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure the security of Personal Data during its transmission between you and us. Accordingly, you acknowledge that when you transmit such Personal Data, you do so at your own risk. Nevertheless, we strive to protect the security of your information and are constantly reviewing and enhancing our information security measures. We will notify you of any confirmed security breach of your Personal Data to the extent required by and in accordance with applicable laws. 

6.3. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to take appropriate technical and organizational security measures against unlawful or unauthorized Processing of Personal Data, and against the misuse, destruction, disclosure, acquisition, accidental loss of, or damage to Personal Data held by or in control of MGI Verified. 

7.  Disclosure of Personal Data
