Thus, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.
CMTAgency reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as the merging into CMTAgency.com of a site that relies on third-party cookies).

c. Use of Web Beacons or GIF Files
CMTAgency / www.cmtagency.com web pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons – sometimes also called single-pixel gifs – that allow CMTAgency to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services.

Some of these web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. This allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to our website and how you use the site.

8. IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT
In addition to the information provided above, California residents have additional legal rights established by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended. Those rights include the following:
· Right to Know: California law grants its residents a right to request, twice in each 12-month period, that CMTAgency disclose to you what personal information we collect, use, disclose, and sell about you. If you want to make a “request to know”,
The process for requesting the “Right to Know” should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the requestor’s full name, phone number and the relationship(s) the requestor has with CMTAgency.
The business will log and record the request and notify the legal and compliance department. Compliance will first authenticate that the requestor is who they say they are. This will be done through secondary requests from the compliance team to the requestor. Compliance will work with HR and the IT departments to query any and all references to the requestor and compile the data references to the requestor. The information will be sent back to the requestor via email.
· Right to Request Deletion: California law grants its residents a right to request the deletion of their personal information that CMTAgency has collected directly from you. The right to request deletion is not absolute; the law allows businesses to keep personal information for certain purposes set forth in the law.
The process for requesting the “Right to Delete” should be sent via email to email@example.com and include the requestor’s full name, phone number and the relationship(s) the requestor has with CMTAgency.
The business will log and record the request and notify the compliance department. Compliance will first authenticate that the requestor is who they say they are. This will be done through secondary requests from the compliance team to the requestor. Compliance will work with HR and the IT departments to query any and all references to the requestor and confirm the data can be removed. For the data that can be deleted, HR and IT will confirm its deletion to the compliance team and the compliance team will communicate to the requestor. As indicated in the law, there is some information that may not be deleted, such as employment history.
· Right Against Non-Discrimination: California law prohibits CMTAgency from discriminating against you based on your exercise of the privacy rights conferred upon you by California law and described above.
· Right to Authorized Agent: California law allows you to designate an agent to make a “request to know” and “request to op-out” on your behalf.
The process for “Designating an Agent” should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the requestor’s full name, phone number signed written permission specifying both the requestor and the designated agent. The compliant department will verify both the requestor and the agent.
