Additional Disclosures for California Residents

These additional disclosures apply only to California residents. The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) provides additional rights to know, delete and opt-out, and requires businesses collecting or disclosing personal information to provide notices and means to exercise rights. For our full Privacy Policy, please visit https://company.eko.com/legal/privacy.

1.1 Notice of Collection.

In the past 12 months, we have collected the following categories of personal information enumerated in the CCPA:

  • Identifiers, including name, postal address, email address, and online identifiers (such as IP address).
  • Customer records, including phone number, billing address, and credit or debit card information.
  • Characteristics of protected classifications under California or federal law, including gender.

We collect and use these categories of personal information for the business purposes described in the “How do we use the information we collect?” section in our Privacy Policy.  

Under the CCPA, “sell” is defined broadly, and some of our data sharing practices may be considered a “sale.” To the extent “sale” under the CCPA is interpreted to include the activities set out in the Privacy Policy, such as those disclosed in the “Analytics and Advertising” section in the Privacy Policy, we will comply with applicable law as to such activity. We disclose the following categories of personal information for commercial purposes: identifiers, characteristics, commercial or transactions information, internet activity, geolocation data, and inferences drawn. Please review the “Sharing of Information” section in our Privacy Policy for further details about the categories of parties with whom we have shared information in the past 12 months.
