California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) gives consumers more control over the personal information that businesses collect about them. This landmark law secures new privacy rights for California consumers, including:

  • The right to know about the personal information a business collects about them and how it is used and shared;
  • The right to delete personal information collected from them (with some exceptions);
  • The right to opt-out of the sale of their personal information; and
  • The right to non-discrimination for exercising their CCPA rights.

The Texthelp Products Privacy Policy describes the information we collect and what we use it for. Texthelp’s approach has always been to collect the minimum amount of information necessary to enable an optimal user experience. Texthelp does not sell your personal data to third parties or use the data for profiling purposes.

The Texthelp End User License Agreements for each product contain standard contractual clauses and these detail the data that may be collected during use of the product. The End User License Agreements are presented to the User prior to the software being installed, that is, at point of collection.
