Privacy Information for California Residents
Effective as of June 13, 2022
This notice applies to California residents and their use of our Services. It describes how we collect, use, and share Personal Information of California residents as a business under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) and their rights with respect to that Personal Information.
When we use the term, “Personal Information” here, we mean the term as it’s used to describe what’s in scope under CCPA.
As a California resident, you have the certain rights regarding your Personal Information, subject to certain specific exceptions in CCPA. You are entitled to exercise these rights free from discrimination.
You may contact us through our Help Center if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of Europe.
We are providing a summary of your CCPA rights and how to exercise them. We may need to verify your identity to process your requests and may need to confirm your California residency. You can have an authorized agent make requests for you, in which case, we may need to verify your agent’s identity and authority to act on your behalf.
Your California Privacy Rights
Deletion. You have the right to request deletion of the Personal Information that we have collected from you, which you can do by following the instructions available here, or by submitting a request here.
Opting-out of and opting-in to the sale of your Personal Information. We don’t “sell” your data in the conventional sense, but the word “sell” under California data privacy law has a specific meaning that’s broader than the conventional use of the term.
This is what we mean:
- Like many companies, we use advertising vendors that help deliver interest-based ads to you. Our use of some of these advertising vendors might be considered, under California law, a “sale” of your Personal Information because the advertising vendors collect information about our creators (e.g., device data and online activity data) to help them serve ads more likely to interest you.
- You can opt-out of any “sale” of your Personal Information here: Do Not Share My Personal Information.
- If we know that you’re 13-15 years of age, we won’t “sell” your Personal Information unless we get your consent to do so.
Right to Know. You have the right to know, in the past 12 months: the categories of Personal Information that we collected about you, the categories of sources from which we collected the Personal Information, the business or commercial purpose for collecting and/or “selling” Personal Information, the categories of third parties with whom we share Personal Information, the categories of Personal Information that we sold or disclosed for a business purpose, and the categories of third parties to whom the Personal Information was sold or disclosed for a business purpose. You can find this information by submitting a request here.
Verification. We’ll need enough detail to understand and respond to your request. We may need to verify your identity to process your requests and may also need to confirm your California residency. To verify your identity, we may require a combination of government identification, a copy of the receipt for your VSCO subscription, or other information. We may also require you to login from a verified valid device or verify that the device you’re logging in from is valid.
Authorized Agents. You can have an authorized agent make a request on your behalf, but we’ll need to verify your agent’s identity. We would also need a copy of a valid power of attorney, or a written and signed permission to exercise your CCPA rights on your behalf. We may still need to verify your identity and may ask you to directly confirm that you provided your authorized agent permission to submit the request on your behalf.
