Your Rights:

The CCPA provides individuals with various privacy-related rights (“Rights”) relating to their PI. This section provides you with information regarding these Rights.

Right to a Notice: At or before the point of collection of PI, Consumers, Employees, Job Applicants and other individuals residing in the State of California are entitled to a notice that provides the categories of PI collected about them, and the purposes for that collection.

Right to Know: A Consumer has the right to request information regarding our collection, disclosure, sale and/or use of their PI over the previous twelve (12) months. A Consumer may request that UKG disclose:

  • Categories of PI that we have collected about you;
  • Categories of sources from which your PI is collected;
  • Categories of PI about you that we have sold or disclosed for a business purpose;
  • Categories of third parties to whom the PI was sold or disclosed for a business purpose;
  • The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling PI; and
  • Specific pieces of PI that we have collected about you.

When providing you with your information electronically, we will, to the extent possible, deliver the information in a portable manner that allows you to transfer the information to another entity.

We may reject your request to know if your identity cannot be verified (your request is not a verifiable consumer request), or if the information has already been provided twice within a twelve (12) month period. We may also refuse to provide you with specific pieces of information that we have collected about you if disclosure creates a substantial, articulable, and unreasonable risk to the security of that PI, your account with UKG or the security of our systems.

Right of Deletion: A Consumer has the right to request the deletion of any PI that we collected from them, or that we maintain about them. Following our receipt of your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our Service Providers to delete) your PI, subject to the exceptions permitted under the CCPA, and any legal obligations that we have to retain that information.

Right to Opt-Out of the Sale of Your Personal Information: The CCPA provides a Consumer with the right to opt-out of the sale (as defined under the law) of his/her PI. UKG does not sell PI, and thus does not provide you with a mechanism for opting-out.

Right to Non-Discrimination: UKG will not discriminate against a Consumer in response to the decision to exercise any of the privacy rights granted to you under the CCPA.

Asserting Your Rights - Submitting a Request to Know or Delete:

Authorized Agents: You may exercise your right to know or your request for deletion of your PI, through the use of an authorized agent.
