Last Updated: December 23, 2019

This notice is provided pursuant to the CCPA and explains how Sunwest Bank collects, uses and discloses the Personal Information (PI) of California residents.

The requirements of the CCPA do not apply to personal information collected that is subject to the Gramm Leach Bliley Act (GLBA).  In addition, personal information collected for business to business communication is currently exempt.

Introduction

A consumer has the right to request that a business that collects personal information about the consumer disclose to the consumer the following:

  • The categories of personal information it has collected about that consumer.
  • The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected.
  • The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom the business shares personal information.
  • The specific pieces of personal information it has collected about that consumer.

A business that collects personal information about a consumer must disclose to the consumer the information specified above upon receipt of a verifiable consumer request from the consumer.  Additionally, the business must associate the information provided by the consumer in the verifiable consumer request to any personal information previously collected by the business about the consumer and identify by category or categories the personal information collected about the consumer in the preceding 12 months by reference to categories enumerated in California Civil Code Section 1798.130(c) that most closely describes the personal information collected.

A consumer has the right to request that a business that sells the consumer’s personal information, or that discloses it for a business purpose, disclose to that consumer:

  • The categories of personal information that the business collected about the consumer.
  • The categories of personal information that the business sold about the consumer and the categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold, by category or categories of personal information for each third party to whom the personal information was sold.
  • The categories of personal information that the business disclosed about the consumer for a business purpose.

A business that sells personal information about a consumer, or that discloses a consumer’s personal information for a business purpose, must disclose the information specified above to the consumer upon receipt of a verifiable consumer request from the consumer.  Additionally, the business must identify the consumer and associate the information provided by the consumer in the verifiable consumer request to any personal information previously collected by the business about the consumer and identify by category or categories the personal information of the consumer that the business sold in the preceding 12 months by reference to the categories enumerated in California Civil Code Section 1798.130(c) that most closely describe the personal information, and provide the categories of third parties to whom the consumer’s personal information was sold in the preceding 12 months by reference to the same enumerated categories.  The business shall disclose the information in a list that is separate from a list generated for the purposes of California Civil Code Section 1798.130(c).

Non-Discrimination

Sunwest Bank shall not discriminate against a consumer because the consumer exercised any of the consumer’s rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act (California Civil Code Section 1798.100 et seq.), including, but not limited to, by:

  • Denying goods or services to the consumer.
  • Charging different prices or rates for goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties.
  • Providing a different level or quality of goods or services to the consumer.
  • Suggesting that the consumer will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

Nothing in California Civil Code Section 1798.125(a) prohibits a business from charging a consumer a different price or rate, or from providing a different level or quality of goods or services to the consumer, if that difference is reasonably related to the value provided to the consumer by the consumer’s data.
