California Privacy Notice
Effective Date: January 1, 2020
The California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”), a new privacy law that provides California consumers certain rights regarding their personal information (“PI”) became effective on January 1, 2020. However, as of that date the California Attorney General had not completed the rule making process to establish the regulations for covered businesses to implement the law. Accordingly, we may from time-to-time update information in this and other notices regarding our data practices and your rights, modify our methods for responding to your requests, and/or supplement our response to your requests, as we continue to develop our compliance program to reflect the development of the law and our understanding of how it relates to our data practices. In the meantime, this Notice outlines the PI we collect subject to the CCPA and our purposes for that collection.
In addition, if you are a California consumer and would like to register a request under your “right to know about personal information collected, disclosed or sold” (including your right to obtain copies of specific pieces of PI and/or information about categories of PI practices), your “right to request deletion of personal information,” or your “right to opt-out of the sale of personal information,” (“CCPA Rights”) you may contact us at CAPrivacyRequest@culligan.com. We will respond to your request as soon as we have guidance on how to properly verify your identity and the means to respond; however, note that CCPA Rights do not apply to PI collected from (a) job applicants, current and former employees or independent contractors (“HR Data Subjects”), or (b) representatives of another business in connection with business communications or transactions (“B-to-B Data Subjects”). HR Data Subjects who are also California residents may learn more about our data collection practices by contacting their human resources department.
We collect PI from California consumers (but excluding B-to-B Data Subjects, who are not entitled to this notice) for the following purposes:
|Category of PI||Examples||Purposes|

||This may include but is not limited to: creating a profile about a Consumer reflecting the Consumer’s preferences, characteristics, predispositions, behavior, and attitudes.||This may include but is not limited to: to enhance our users’ online experiences and for on and/or offline marketing.|
We will revise this California Privacy Notice from time-to-time as the law becomes clearer and we are able to provide you with better information on your CCPA rights and how to exercise them.
Third Party Marketing and Your California Privacy Rights: We provide California residents with the option to opt-in or opt-out to sharing of “personal information” as defined by California’s “Shine the Light” law with third parties, other than any Culligan dealers that are authorized by Culligan to sell Culligan services or products, for such third parties own direct marketing purposes. California residents may exercise that opt-out, and/or request information about our compliance with the Shine the Light law, and obtain disclosure of third parties we have shared information in accordance with the law for their direct marketing purposes absent your choice and the categories of information shared, by emailing us at CAPrivacyRequest@culligan.com or by sending a letter to Culligan at 9399 W. Higgins Rd., Ste 1100, Rosemont, IL 60018, USA, (Attention: Privacy Officer).
