DO NOT SELL MY PERSONAL INFORMATION (Notice for California Residents Only)
Effective Date: January 1, 2020
Last Revised: March 10, 2021
CCPA’s CONSUMER RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OF THE SALE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Under the California Consumer Protection Act (“CCPA”), California residents have the right, at any time, to direct a business that sells personal information about the consumer to third parties not to sell the consumer’s personal information. This right is referred to in CCPA as the Right to Opt-Out.
Does RMA actually “sell” my personal information?
RMA does not sell your personal information in the traditional sense of the word. We provide this additional review of our practices relating to personal information because we take very seriously CCPA’s mission and directive that we provide a transparent and comprehensive disclosure to you of all our business activities which are subject to CCPA.
RMA advertises for clinical trials on behalf of our clients and communicates your information to the clinical research site that conducts the study.
Because this collection, use and disclosure of your personal information, and any resulting exchanges of monetary or other consideration between us and our Business Partners, may be considered “sales” under CCPA, we are disclosing this specifically in this notification for the benefit of our Site users residing in California.
RMA will never sell or share your personal information for any other purpose.
How do I request that my personal information not be sold?
If you do not want your personal information “sold” in the manner described above, then please let us know in one of the following ways:
By Telephone: (919) 781-2514 (Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET)
By E-mail: Privacy@usa.m3.com (please write “RMA CCPA Do Not Sell My Info” in the subject line)
By Mail or Courier:
Attn: California Privacy Requests
3100 Duraleigh Rd, Suite 304
Raleigh, NC 27612
Only you, or a person (or a business entity registered with the California Secretary of State), whom you have authorized to act on your behalf) may make a consumer request about your personal information.
Consistent with CCPA’s provisions, we may require either (or both) that you provide your authorized agent with written permission to act for you and verify your own identity to us (or provide a power of attorney signed by you stating your authorized agent’s power to act for you).2
How Does RMA Respond to My Request to Opt-Out of Sale of Personal Information?
As soon as feasibly possible, but no later than fifteen (15) business days from the date of our receipt of your request, we will act upon your request to exercise your Right to Opt-Out of the Sale of Personal Information.
We will notify all third parties to whom we have “sold” your personal information within the 90-day period prior to the date of our receipt of your request, and will direct them to not further disclose or “sell” your personal information. We will notify you when this has been completed.
Please note that if we have reasonable basis to believe that a Right to Opt-Out request is a fraudulent one (e.g., that it was not sent by the Registered User in whose name an account was set up or by their authorized agent who authority has been confirmed by the Registered User to us), we will deny that request. If we do so, then we will provide the requesting party with an explanation of our basis for believing that the request is a fraudulent one.
