Privacy Notice for California Residents

Last updated: July 7, 2023


This Notice at Collection and Privacy Policy discloses the categories of personal information that we collect and the purposes for which we use and disclose personal information for a business purpose where we are a “business” under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”).

Pindrop is a “business,” as defined by the CCPA for the personal information it collects about California residents such as current and prospective business customer’s contact information and website visitor information. When Pindrop receives personal information from or on behalf of our customers, we are a “service provider” as defined by the CCPA.  

Under the CCPA, “personal information” is any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California resident or household. It does not include certain other information or publicly available data as defined by the CCPA. This section does not apply to personal information collected, processed, sold, or disclosed that is subject to the federal Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (“GLBA”) or the California Financial Information Privacy Act.


The chart below describes the categories of personal information Pindrop collects, discloses for a business purpose, and “sells” in circumstances where we act as a business.”

California privacy laws define a “sale” as disclosing or making available to a third-party personal information in exchange for monetary or other valuable consideration, and “sharing” broadly includes disclosing or making available personal information to a third party for purposes of cross-context behavioral advertising. While we do not disclose personal information to third parties in exchange for monetary compensation, we may “sell” or “share” (as defined by the CCPA) certain technical information, including identifiers such as IP address and information about your browsing and usage of our services, information about how you interact with our ads and certain analytic and measurement information with third party advertising networks, internet service providers, data analytics providers, operating systems and platforms, social networks, and data brokers. We do so in order to improve and evaluate our advertising campaigns and better reach customers and prospective customers with more relevant ads and content. 

We do not sell or share any personal information about individuals who we know are under 16 years old.
