10. California Privacy Notice
For the purposes of this California Privacy Notice, except where a different definition is noted, “personal information” means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California resident or California household. For California residents or California households, personal information does not include publicly available information; lawfully obtained, truthful information that is a matter of public concern; information that has been de-identified; or information that has been aggregated. For purposes of this section, “publicly available information” includes: information that is made available from federal, state, or local government records; information that a business has a reasonable basis to believe is lawfully available to the general public, either through widely distributed media, or by the consumer; and information that is made available by a person to whom the consumer has disclosed the information if the consumer has not restricted the information to a specific audience.
Please note that because Aurora’s Products and Services are generally not available to consumers or the general public, the majority of the personal information subject to this California Privacy Notice is personal information collected about individuals acting in an employment, contractor, or other agency capacity for business, government organization, or other legal entity with which Aurora does business (“Business-to-Business Data” or “B2B Data”).
The CCPA provides California residents with rights to receive certain disclosures regarding the collection, use, and sharing of personal information, as well as rights to access, delete, and restrict the sale of certain personal information we collect about them. California residents also have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for the exercise of your privacy rights under the CCPA. If you are a California resident, you may submit a request to exercise these rights by completing our online webform or by emailing us using the information provided in the Your Privacy Rights section below.
a. Personal Information We Collect
Aurora may collect, or has collected, the following categories of personal information over the past twelve (12) months:
Identifiers, which includes first and last name; email address; postal address; telephone number; and Internet Protocol (“IP”) address.
Professional or employment-related information, which includes, as may be collected from our business-to-business contacts, employer name and location; job title or role; business unit or division; and professional memberships, licensing, and certifications.
Internet or other electronic network activity information, which includes cookie identifiers; tracking pixels containing an ID number; online tracking technology; IP address; browser software; your computer’s operating system; the website that referred you to our site and/or the search terms you entered into a search engine to reach our site; internet service provider (“ISP”); date/time stamp; clickstream data; keylogging and computer mouse movement tracking; and device platform, version, and other device characteristics which may include settings such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Global Positioning System (“GPS”);
Geolocation, which includes approximate location collected from a device’s IP address;
Audio, electronic, visual, thermal, olfactory, or similar information, which includes photographic images; and call and voicemail recordings.
Voluntary information or inferences drawn from the personal information listed above.
Please note that because of the overlapping nature of certain of the categories of personal information identified above, which are required by state law, some of the personal information we collect may be reasonably classified under multiple categories.
b. Uses of Personal Information
Identify and communicate with employees and other representatives of Aurora’s enterprise and institutional customers and potential customers;
Maintain and improve Aurora’s ability to serve those individuals and the enterprises and institutions that they represent; and
Negotiate, execute, and perform on contracts and other arrangements to receive our Products and Services.
We will retain personal information for as long as needed or permitted in light of the purpose(s) for which it was obtained. The criteria used to determine our retention periods include: (i) the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you; (ii) whether you have provided, and the nature of, your directions and/or consent to us or others; (iii) whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject; (iv) whether there is a privacy right for which the personal information has been exercised (such as a request to delete); and (v) whether retention is advisable in light of our legal position (such as in regard to applicable statutes of limitations, litigation or regulatory investigations).
c. Sources of Personal Information
We obtain the categories of personal information listed above from the following categories of sources:
From our business partners and others, including our current and potential customers and our industry partners.
We may supplement the personal information collected from the categories of sources described above with personal information we obtain from other sources.
d. Disclosure of Personal Information
This includes disclosure of your personal information to service providers for a business purpose. When we disclose personal information for a business purpose, we enter a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep that personal information confidential and not to use it for any purpose except performing the contract. In the preceding twelve (12) months, we have disclosed each category of personal information listed in Section 10(a) for a business purpose.
Aurora does not “sell” personal information to third parties for monetary or other valuable consideration as that term is defined by the CCPA.
The CCPA requires us to identify the categories of personal information that we have “sold” or “shared” under the CCPA in the preceding twelve (12) months.
In the last twelve (12) months, we have disclosed (or “shared”) the following categories of personal information to advertising partners for cross-context behavioral advertising purposes:

Right to Know. You have the right to, up to twice in a 12-month period, request what personal information we collect, use, disclose, and/or sell, and to whom, as applicable, as well as the categories of sources from which the personal information is collected, the purposes of collecting, using, or sharing the personal information, the categories of third parties to whom we disclose personal information, and the specific pieces of personal information that we collect.

Right to Opt-Out of Sale or Sharing. You have the right to opt-out of the sale or sharing of your personal information as those terms are defined under California law.
Right to Limit Use and Disclosure. You have the right to limit the use or disclosure of your sensitive personal information to only the uses necessary for us to provide employment-related services to you. We will not use or disclose your sensitive personal information after you have exercised your right unless you subsequently provide consent for the use of your sensitive personal information for additional purposes.
Right to Correct. You have the right to request the correction of your inaccurate personal information.
Right to Non-Discrimination. You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment for the exercise of the privacy rights described above.
How to submit a request. You may exercise any of the rights described in this section by emailing us at email@example.com, by utilizing our interactive webform and following the instructions, or by calling 1 (888) 583-9506.
Any request you submit to us is subject to an identification and residency verification process (“Verifiable Consumer Request”) as permitted by the CCPA. We will not fulfill your request unless you have provided sufficient information that enables us to reasonably verify that you are the consumer about whom we collected the personal information on. To verify you, you must provide us with first name, last name, and e-mail address. These rights are also subject to various exclusions and exceptions under applicable laws.
Authorized agents. You may also designate an authorized agent, in writing or through a power of attorney, to request to exercise the above rights on your behalf. If you should use an authorized agent to exercise your various rights under the CCPA, we may require that you provide your authorized agent with written permission to exercise your various rights and to verify your own identity with us. If your authorized agent does not submit proof that they have been authorized by you to submit verified requests for disclosure and deletion, we reserve the right to deny such a request that we have received and will explain to your authorized agent why we have denied such request. The authorized agent may submit a request to exercise these rights by emailing the letter of authorization or power of attorney to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Household data. We currently do not collect household data. If we receive a request submitted by all members of a household, we will individually respond to each request. We will not be able to comply with any request by a member of a household under the age of 13, as we do not collect personal information from any person under the age of 13.
Responses. We will respond to your request within forty-five (45) days after receipt of a Verifiable Consumer Request for a period covering twelve (12) months and for no more than twice in a twelve-month period. We reserve the right to extend the response time by an additional forty-five (45) days when reasonably necessary and provided consumer notification of the extension is made within the first forty-five (45) days.
We will continue to update our business practices as direct regulatory guidance becomes available.
