Transfers to Canada from EU
Emtech Group Inc. is a Canadian company headquartered in Toronto, Ontario. For lawful transfers of personal data to Canada from the European Economic Area (“EEA”), United Kingdom (“UK”), Emtech Group relies on the EU’s / UK recognition of the adequacy of Canada’s Privacy law, the Personal Information and Electronic Documents Act (“PIPEDA”), as a lawful mechanism for the transfer of personal data to recipients subject to PIPEDA, which governs how Emtech Group Inc. can collect, use, and disclose personal data. Since 2001, PIPEDA has given Canada the benefit of an adequacy decision by the EU Commission and transfers on the basis of an adequacy determination are authorized pursuant to Article 45 of the GDPR”. This decision is an acknowledgement by the EU Commission and UK that PIPEDA affords an adequate level of personal data protection to customers that entrust personal data to Emtech Group Inc..

Your Rights and Choices under California Law
Below please find a description of key rights California residents have under California Law and an explanation of how to exercise those rights with us.
- Right to Know. If you are a California resident, you have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal data.
- Right to Delete. You have the right to request that we delete some or all of the personal data we have pertaining to you. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will then delete (and direct our service providers to delete, if applicable) your personal data from our records, unless a lawful basis exists to retain it. We may deny your deletion request if we are unable to verify your identity or if we are not required to delete your personal data under the CCPA.
- Right to Correct Inaccurate Personal Data. You have the right to request that we correct any of the personal data that we maintain about you.
- Right to Opt Out of the Sale or Sharing of Personal Data. If Emtech Group Inc. sells or shares personal data about you with third parties, you may have the right to opt out and request that Emtech Group Inc. not sell or share your personal data.

Unless permitted by applicable law, we will not: (i) deny you goods or services; (ii) charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties; (iii) provide you a different level or quality of goods or services; or (iv) suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services. However, we will deny your request if (i) we cannot verify your identity or (ii) the disclosure creates a substantial, articulable, and unreasonable risk to the security of your personal data, or your account with us.
Exercising Your California Law Rights
You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your California Law privacy rights. To exercise the rights described above, please submit a consumer request to us by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
To exercise your right to know, delete, or correct your personal data as described above, we need to verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal data relates to you. We will not provide you with personal data if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal data relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We use personal data provided in a verifiable consumer request solely to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
These requests may be made only by you, your parents, guardian (if you are under 18 years or age), conservator, a person to whom you have given power of attorney pursuant to California Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465, or an authorized agent. As permitted under California Law, we may request that an individual submitting a request on behalf of a consumer submit proof that they are an authorized agent of the subject consumer, as well as verify the consumer’s identity. To protect your personal data, we reserve the right to deny a request from an agent that does not submit adequate proof that you authorized them to act for you.
We are only required to respond to a verifiable consumer Right to Know request twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must provide sufficient information to allow us to verify you (or an authorized agent) are the person about whom we collected personal data.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
Once we have verified a request from a California resident, we will confirm receipt of the request within 10 days and explain how we will process the request. We will then respond to the request within 45 days. We may require an additional 45 days (for a total of 90 days) to process your request, but in those situations, we will provide you with a response and explanation for the reason it will take more than 45 days to respond to the request. Our responses will include required information under California Law.
Additional disclosures regarding Colorado, Connecticut, Utah, and Virginia

Opt out of the Processing of your personal data for the purposes of targeted advertising and for profiling in furtherance of decisions, including, for residents of Connecticut, solely automated decisions, that produce legal or similarly significant effects; and

If you would like to exercise any of your rights under applicable law (including the right to appeal), please email email@example.com.
