We do not control the collection and use of your information collected by third parties described above in Disclosure of Your Information.1 When possible, these organizations are under contractual obligations to use this data only for providing the services to us and to maintain this information strictly confidential. These third parties may, however, aggregate the information they collect with information from their other customers for their own purposes.
In addition, we strive to provide you with choices regarding the Personal Data you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with control over your Personal Data:
We do not control third parties’ collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. However, these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way. You can also opt out of receiving targeted ads from members of the NAI on its website.
- Location Information. You can choose whether or not to allow our Applications to collect and use real-time information about your device’s location through the device’s privacy settings. For example, the “location” permissions on your mobile device may allow you to elect to never share location information with us, share location information only while you are using our Applications, or always share location information even if you are not using our Applications. If you elect not to share your location information, you may be unable to access some features of our services that are designed for mobile devices. You can also disable location-based alerts in the Settings section of our Applications.

Some web browsers permit you to broadcast a signal to websites and online services indicating a preference that they “do not track” your online activities. Because there is no standard for these signals at this time, we currently do not honor such signals and we do not modify what information we collect or how we use that information based upon whether such a signal is broadcast or received by us.
We have implemented measures designed to secure your Personal Data from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. The safety and security of your information also depends on you.

We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Websites or Applications or in your equipment or operating system.

Unless otherwise noted, this California Privacy Addendum will not apply to the following types of information until January 1, 2023: (i) employment-related personal information collected from our California-based employees, job applicants, contractors, or similar individuals and (ii) Personal Information collected as part of a business-to-business communication (verbal or written) or transaction between AprilAire and a consumer who is acting as an employee, owner, director, officer, or independent contractor on behalf of another company, and the communication or transaction solely relates to providing or receiving products or services to or from such company.
We collect information that identifies, relates to, describes, references, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or device (“Personal Information”). The type of Personal Information we collect may vary depending on your relationship with us. For this reason, we may collect, and over the prior 12 months have collected, the following categories of Personal Information from consumers:
1. Identifiers, such as name, contact information (e.g., postal and/or shipping address, telephone number, email address), online identifier, MAC ID, IP address, and account name.
2. Personal information as defined in the California Customer Records law, such as name and contact information.

Disclosures of Personal Information for a Business Purpose
In the preceding 12 months, we have disclosed all categories of Personal Information listed above (excluding Internet or Network Activity information) for a business purpose to our affiliated entities and business partners who we use to support our business, and we have disclosed Internet or Network Activity information (as defined above) for a business purpose with internet cookie information recipients, such as analytics and behavioral advertising services.
Sales of Personal Information
We do not sell consumers’ Personal Information and have not sold consumers’ Personal Information in the preceding 12 months.
The CCPA provides consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights
You have the right to request that AprilAire disclose certain information to you about our collection, use, disclosure, and sale of your Personal Information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability and Deletion Rights8), we will disclose to you:
- The categories of Personal Information we collected about you.
- The categories of sources from which the Personal Information was collected.
- Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that Personal Information.
- The categories of third parties with whom we share that Personal Information.
- If we sold or disclosed your Personal Information for a business purpose, two separate lists identifying: the categories of Personal Information disclosed, and the categories of third parties to whom the Personal Information was disclosed, and (ii) the categories of Personal Information sold, and the categories of third parties to whom the Personal Information was sold.
- The specific pieces of Personal Information we collected about you.
If you make a request for the specific pieces of Personal Information electronically, we will, to the extent permitted by law, provide you with a copy of your Personal Information in a format we select that is readily useable and allows you to transmit the Personal Information to another person or entity.
Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that AprilAire delete any of your Personal Information that we have collected from you and maintained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights9), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
1. Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
2. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
3. Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
4. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
5. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.)
6. Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
7. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
8. Comply with legal obligation.
9. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by:
- Emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
- Calling us at (800) 334-6011
- Logging into your account on the Websites or Applications (for access requests only).
Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf (an “Authorized Agent”), may make a verifiable consumer request related to your Personal Information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. We are not obligated to provide information to you in response to your verifiable consumer request for access or portability more than twice in a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or an Authorized Agent.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We are unable to fulfill your request or provide you with Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Personal Information relates to you. With few exceptions, we will only review and fulfill a request from your Authorized Agent if (i) you grant the Authorized Agent written permission to make a request on your behalf, (ii) you or the Authorized Agent provides us notice of that written permission, and (iii) we are able to verify your identity in connection with that notice and the request. We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
Verifying Your Identity
Before completing your request to exercise the below, we will verify that the request came from you by comparing the identifying information provided by you in your request with any Personal Information we maintain about you at that time. For all requests, we will need the consumer’s full name.
To protect the privacy and security of your Personal Information, we may request additional information from you to help us verify your identity and process your request. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response. You may also be asked to complete and provide a signed declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the consumer who is the subject of the request in certain circumstances. We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
Response Timing and Format
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 45 additional days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your Personal Information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
You have a right to not receive discriminatory treatment by us for exercising your rights under the CCPA. Unless permitted by the CCPA:
- You will not be denied goods or services.
- You will not be charged different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
- You will not be provided a different level or quality of goods or services.
- You will not receive suggestions that you could obtain a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
We reserve the right to amend this California Privacy Addendum from time to time. When we make changes to this California Privacy Addendum, we will post the revised California Privacy Addendum on this page with a new “Last Updated” date.
