California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a privacy-centric bill aimed at protecting the privacy of California consumers that will be effective on January 1, 2020. ("Tapform") provides a widget app that integrates with our client's websites to collect their leads data, such as project details, names, phone numbers, and email addresses. We understand the importance of protecting the privacy of personal information, and we are committed to complying with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).

Privacy notice

The CCPA requires businesses to revise their privacy notices to clearly specify the data that is collected, categorize it accordingly, provide an explanation for the purpose of the data collection, identify any third parties with whom the data may be shared, and inform individuals of their available rights. While the CCPA is a comprehensive law covering various areas, some provisions may not have a direct impact on your use of Tapform. However, there are certain rights that your customers may have under the CCPA that are relevant to your use of Tapform. Tapform is a tool that can be used in compliance with applicable laws and regulations by our clients. Additionally, your customers may have the right to request the deletion of specific personal information. To ensure compliance with the CCPA, we strongly recommend conducting a comprehensive review of your company's terms of service and privacy policy. That will enable you to determine whether any modifications are required to meet the CCPA's requirements and to disclose the use of Tapform, if necessary.

1. Personal Information Collected

Tapform collects the following categories of personal information from California residents who use our clients' websites and provide their information through our widget app: - Identifiers, such as name, phone number, and email address - Commercial information, such as project details - Internets or other electronic network activity information, such as IP address and browser type - Mouse and keyboard movements, scrolls, taps, and clicks. This data is anonymous by default. This applies to forms on your website, too. - Aggregate and/or de-identified information is not considered personally identifiable information. - Geolocation information, and financial account information that you provide, such as credit or debit card numbers. However, if the non-personally identifiable information is not linked to any personally identifiable information, then it will not be considered personally identifiable information and will not be subject to the same privacy and security restrictions. For example, if we collect general location information (such as your city or state) without any other personally identifiable information, then that information will not be considered personally identifiable information and will not be subject to heightened privacy and security restrictions. It's important to note that we take the privacy and security of all information, including non-personally identifiable information, very seriously and implement appropriate measures to protect it.

3. Disclosure of Personal Information

The consumer may also be able to request that any specific personal information be deleted. Tapform does not sell personal information to any third parties. With the exception of specific types of data (e.g. billing or other regulatory required information), these deletion requests must be fulfilled by you, the business.
