If I opt out through the above sites forms, will I still see online ads?

What is CCPA?

The California Consumer Privacy Act, also known as CCPA, was created to protect the privacy and data of California consumers. The CCPA initiative states that the act is intended to “give Californians the ‘who, what, where, and when’ of how businesses handle consumers’ personal information.” The act requires businesses to inform consumers when requested, what data is being collected and gives consumers the right to reject the sale of their personal information to other entities. It will also allow consumers the right to sue businesses if their personal data is breached.

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is effective as of May 25, 2018 across all European Union (EU) member states. In short, if you process data about individuals in the context of selling goods or services to European citizens in any EU country, then you will need to comply with GDPR. At the bare minimum, the GDPR was drafted with the intended purposes of protecting all non-anonymized personal data (or personally identifiable information: PII). And any company (or organization) that stores or processes personal information about “natural persons” (individual human beings) who are “data subjects” under the Regulation — defined as European citizens who reside in an EU state — must comply. While GDPR is not a U.S. government policy, U.S. companies must take steps to either block EU users or implement processes that ensure compliance. Throtle welcomes the arrival of GDPR as it builds on the trust that employees, customers, consumers and other stakeholders should have in our industry’s ability to deliver transparency and ensure privacy compliance. This includes Throtle’s ability to apply a high level of data protection and security in relation to personal data that our employees, customers and third parties entrust to us.

What is Throtle's Policy Regarding EU Data, Protection & Security?

Any personal data that is based in any EU member country, including the UK, will be destroyed immediately. It is our policy to not accept any personal data where an individual resides in any EU member country. Throtle perform scans on all data that we ingest, from sources, partners and clients, to identify non-US postal and foreign email domains. In addition, we work with our partners and sources to inform us is they are ingesting any data from outside the US. Throtle regularly cleanses its Identity graph to remove any linkages that are found to originate outside the United States. Although we have already have a substantial and consistent level of data protection and security in our data centers. At such time that Throtle begins to do business with firms using data based in the EU we intend to be fully GDPR compliant. This includes keeping internal records of all our data processing activities and having a process to accommodate the rights of our data sources as well as consumers.
