Scope of Disclosures

These California Privacy Disclosures (the “California Disclosures”) supplement the information contained in our privacy policy and apply solely to individual residents of the State of California (“consumers” or “you”).

These California Disclosures provide additional information about how FormFactor, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, “FormFactor,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) collect, use, disclose and otherwise process personal information of individual residents of the State of California, either online or offline, within the scope of the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”).  We reserve the right to amend or change this Notice at any time.  Any changes will become effective upon posting the revised Notice and/or providing it to you.

Unless otherwise expressly stated, all terms in these California Disclosures have the same meaning as defined in our privacy policy or as otherwise defined in the CCPA.

What is Personal Information?

When we use the term “personal information” in this Privacy Notice, we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, to an individual or household. It does not include publicly available information or information that has been aggregated or deidentified and that is maintained in a form that is not capable of being associated with or reasonably linked to an individual person.

How to Exercise Your California Privacy Rights

To Exercise Your Right to Know or Right to Deletion

To exercise your right to know, correct,  and/or right to deletion, please submit a request to [email protected] or by calling 800-919-6776. In compliance with CCPA we will require certain identifying information from you to verify your request. We will make our best efforts to respond to your valid request within 45 days from the receipt. We will need to verify your identity in order to respond to your request, which may involve confirming your California residency and/or reviewing your government identification. If you do not verify your identity, we cannot respond to your request.  In some instances, we may be required to continue to retain or disclose portions of your personal data to comply with regulatory or legal obligations. Unless otherwise requested, any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. Under the CCPA, you may request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information beyond the past 12 months.  We, however, may decline to provide you that information if doing so would require a disproportionate effort on our part.
