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 we 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 of 2018 (“CCPA”).

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.

Personal Information Disclosures

When we use the term “personal information” in these California Disclosures, we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.

Personal information under the CCPA does not include:

  • Information relating to our job applicants, employees, contractors and other personnel of FormFactor.
  • Certain information about our interactions with our business-to-business (“B2B”) contacts.
  • Publicly available information from government records.
  • Deidentified, aggregated or anonymized information that is maintained in a form that is not capable of being associated with or linked to you.
  • Information excluded from the CCPA’s scope, such as:
    • Health or medical information covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the California Confidentiality of Medical Information Act (CMIA) or clinical trial data;
    • Information covered by certain sector-specific privacy laws, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FRCA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) or California Financial Information Privacy Act (FIPA), and the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act of 1994.

Disclosure and Sale of Personal Information

In the last 12 months, we have not made personal information available to third parties for monetary or other valuable consideration while personal data may have been made available to the identified services in this disclosure as part of the limited integration with such services on our website.

We have disclosed for business purposes the following categories of personal information which reference the categories of personal information described above:

    * Note about “Sales”: We do not “sell” personal information as most people would typically understand that term. However, we do allow certain third party partners and providers to collect information about consumers directly through our Services for purposes of analyzing and optimizing our Services and ads, providing content and ads that are more relevant, measuring statistics and the success of ad campaigns, and detecting and reporting fraud. To the extent this practice is interpreted to constitute a “sale” under the CCPA, please see “To Exercise Your Right to Opt-Out of Personal Information Sales” section below.

Recipients of Personal Information

As described in the “With whom do we share your personal information?” section of the privacy policy, we share personal information within FormFactor and with a variety of third parties for business purposes.

  • Categories of personal information we have collected about you;

The Right to
Non-Discrimination
You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment for exercising any of the rights described above.

However, please note that if the exercise of the rights described above limits our ability to process personal information (such as in the case of a deletion request), we may no longer be able to provide you our products or Services or engage with you in the same manner.

How to Exercise Your California Privacy Rights

To Exercise Your Right to Know or Right to Deletion

To exercise your right to know and/or right to deletion, please submit a request to privacy@formfactor.com with the subject line “California Rights Request” and include your contact information and the full details of your request, or call (800) 919-6776 and provide this information via telephone.  We will need to verify your identity before processing any request. In order to verify your identity, we will generally either require the successful login to your account or the matching of sufficient information you provide us to the information we maintain about you in our systems.  Although we try to limit the personal information collected in connection with a request to exercise the right to know and/or the right to deletion to that personal information, certain requests may require us to obtain additional personal information from you. In certain circumstances, we may decline a request to exercise the right to know and/or right to deletion, particularly where we are unable to verify your identity.

To Exercise Your Right to Opt Out of Personal Information “Sales”

We do not “sell” personal information as most people think of that term. To the extent our third-party advertising partners collection of information from our website visitors constitute a “sale” under the CCPA, please see our privacy policy for more information about the choices and opt-out options you may have in relation to those practices.

Minors Under Age 16

We do not sell the personal information of consumers we know to be less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “Right to Opt In”) from either the minor who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a minor less than 13 years of age.
