Information You Provide Directly to Us. You may provide your Personal Information in a variety of situations, including when you sign up for the Port of Kalama newsletter, contact us, sign up to receive communications from us, lease real estate or service, submit a customer service request, enter a sweepstakes or contest entry, provide us feedback or survey responses, or otherwise use any of the Services. Personal Information you provide may include:
How We Use Information
We use your information for our business purposes. For example, we use your information to operate and improve our services, understand your interests, respond to your requests or questions, provide customer service, verify your requests, manage security and prevent fraud or criminal activity, send you marketing communications, and for other purposes we may notify you of from time to time.
We may share your Personal Information with our affiliates, our service providers, our business and marketing partners, to comply with laws, to protect ourselves or enforce our rights, in connection with a business transfer, or in other situations where we provide you with notice. Cookies and tracking technologies are used on our Services, which allows us, advertising networks, social media companies, and others to place or display ads relevant to you on our Services, as well as on other websites, services, or devices you may use. We may also share your Personal Information with companies that market or provide products and services for our brands (such as, for example, service lease agreements), unless you opt out from our marketing communications or, in Canada or where otherwise required by law, unless you have consented. Otherwise, we will not share Personal Information with unaffiliated parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you have consented.
We may share Other Information with other parties for any purpose, unless prohibited by law. We may also share your Personal Information in the following circumstances:
Public Posts. When you post comments or content (such as reviews or recipes) on message boards, blogs, or other interactive features in connection with our Services, your name, city, state, and additional information may be viewable by others. Be careful when deciding to make any of your Personal Information available through the Services. If you use any social media features offered through the Services, such as a Like button, share button, or other features, these features may collect your information, such as your IP address or which page you are visiting, and may set cookies to enable the features. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policies of the social media platforms.
You may opt-out of receiving marketing messages from us by contacting our Privacy Office or by using the unsubscribe link in our emails. You may correct your information or delete your account using the account settings on this Website or App, or (if not available) by emailing our Privacy Office us using the Contact Information below.
If you are a California resident, you have the right to request access to certain information we collected about you, request deletion of your Personal Information (subject to certain exceptions), and request to opt-out of the “sale” (as defined under California law) of your Personal Information.
California Residents: Your California Privacy Rights. If you are a California resident, California’s Shine the Light law permits you to request and receive information about disclosure of certain of your Personal Information to other parties for their direct marketing purposes. As described above, we may share your Personal Information with companies that market or provide products and services for our brands (such as, for example, service plans and warranties), unless you opt out from our marketing communications or, in Canada or where otherwise required by law, unless you have consented. To opt-out, contact us using the information in the “Contact Us” section of this Privacy Notice. Otherwise, it is our policy not to share Personal Information with unaffiliated parties for their direct marketing purposes (as defined in California’s Shine the Light law) without your consent.
California residents also have the right to make the following requests. We will not discriminate against you because you exercise any of these rights.
Access – You can request that we disclose to you the categories of Personal Information we collected about you, the categories of sources from which we collected the Personal Information, the categories of Personal Information we sold or disclosed, our business or commercial purpose for collecting and selling your Personal Information, the categories of third parties with whom we shared your Personal Information, and the specific pieces of Personal Information we collected about you over the past 12 months. For purposes of this Privacy Notice, “sell” means the transfer of your personal information to a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration, subject to certain exceptions set forth in applicable California law. Your opt-out of cookie-based tracking for advertising purposes is specific to the device, website, and browser you are using, and is deleted whenever you clear your browser’s cache. Your opt-out of mobile app tracking is specific to the device you are using.
California residents can make an access or deletion request by contacting us using the information in the “Contact Us” section of this Privacy Notice (below), by calling toll-free, or by using the web form available in the Contact Us section on our websites.
We will take reasonable steps to verify your identity prior to responding to your requests. The verification steps may vary depending on the sensitivity of the Personal Information and whether you have an account with us. If you designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf, please ensure the authorized agent identifies him/herself as an authorized agent.
We may deny certain requests, or fulfill a request only in part, based on our legal rights and obligations. For example, we may retain Personal Information as permitted by law, such as for tax or other record keeping purposes, to maintain an active account, and to process transactions and facilitate customer requests. Except as otherwise provided by applicable California law, for purposes of these requests under this section of the Privacy Notice, Personal Information does not include information about job applicants, employees and other of our personnel; information about employees and other representatives of third-party entities we may interact with; or information we have collected as a service provider to our clients.
We may collect California residents’ Personal Information, like contact information, in connection with a financial incentive, such as a discount, special pricing or other promotional offer. Our offers and incentives generally reflect the value of the relationships that we have with the individuals who participate in these programs. Participation in these programs is voluntary and you may withdraw at any time by electing not to participate or contacting us using the information in the “Contact Us” section of this Privacy Notice.
