CCPA Privacy Notice
THE CCPA AND YOUR PERSONAL DATA RIGHTS
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) grants California residents increased control over their personal data.
This CCPA privacy notice provides the details you need to understand your rights under the CCPA, and to exercise those rights. It also provides you with the contact information you need to take action regarding the privacy of your data.
Defining Personally Identifiable Information
Various laws and regulations (including the CCPA) use different terms and definitions for information about individuals that is personal and should be protected. Some laws and regulations consider only very limited types of information to be protected and private. Others include much broader categories.
At Energy Capital Partners, we have chosen to adopt the broader approach to what information must be protected and kept as private as possible. In this notice, “Personally Identifiable Information” (PII) refers to data that could be used, alone or in combination with other data, to identify you as an individual. It can include name, physical address, email address, IP address, date of birth, social security number, passwords, and more.
