Our Privacy Obligations
Rightworks markets products and services to individuals and organizations located in the United States. Accordingly, we are obligated to comply with various U.S. state privacy laws, including, among others, the California Consumer Protection Act (as amended, the “CCPA”).
We do not knowingly market products or services to individuals or organizations located outside of the United States and, in particular, to those located in the European Economic Area (“European Union”).
As such, Rightworks, LLC is not subject to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). Where it makes sense from a legal or practical standpoint, however, we may look to GDPR as high-level guidance with respect to complying with applicable U.S. state privacy laws or regulations (i.e., your rights as a data subject, and our privacy-related business obligations to you).
Please note that if you purchase or use Rightworks products or services through another firm, your overall rights may be impacted by the specific privacy policies and/or processes of that firm.

- Our service providers or software vendors;
- Affiliated organizations, such as marketing partners;
- Web cookies, and similar technologies;
- When you submit payment for our products and services; and
- Instances where you are invited to volunteer such information.
Some information that we collect is personal information. This is information that could be used to identify you as an individual, or as part of a specific household.

- Mailing address;
- Telephone and fax numbers;
- Company URL;
- Credit card information;

Our Lawful Bases for Processing your Information
Although we are not subject to GDPR, when we process your personal information, we do consider the lawful bases set out in the GDPR as best practice. The lawful bases we consider include:
- Consent: You have given us explicit permission to process your personal information. When consent is used as the lawful basis for processing your personal information, you may withdraw your consent at any time.
- Contractual Obligation: We process your personal information in order to provide you with one or more of our products and services.

- Vital Interests of the Data Subject: The processing of your personal information is necessary to protect you or someone else’s life.*
- Public Interest: The processing of your personal information is necessary to the greater public interest.*
- Legitimate interest: We process your personal information to conduct our business. This may include improving products and services, provided that we do not infringe upon your other rights or interests.
* Vital Interest of the Data Subject and Public Interest are unlikely scenarios, but are included for the sake of completeness.
The most common Lawful Bases for the processing of your personal data will generally be Consent, Contractual Obligation, and Legitimate Interest.

Opting Out of the Sale or Sharing of your Personal Information
To opt out of the selling or sharing of your personal information, contact the Rightworks Privacy Office by phone, email, or postal mail as described at the bottom of this Notice.
Keeping You Informed about our Products and Services
We would like to tell you about the great offers, ideas, products, and services that we think you might be interested in. Where we have consent, or it is in our legitimate interest to do so, we may do this through the mail, by email, text message, phone, through online advertising, or other electronic means.
We won’t send you marketing messages if you tell us not to, but if we provide a product or service to you, we will still need to send you occasional service-related messages.
In the interest of continual improvement, we may also send you surveys about the products and services that we are providing to you, including customer support surveys.
Any email communication from Rightworks that you can opt out of will contain a link to do so.
If you wish to modify your overall marketing and communication preferences, you can do so by visiting our email preference center.
Please note that much of our marketing is performed as part of organized campaigns that are established well in advance. As such, it can take anywhere from several days to several weeks for your marketing preferences to catch up with our systems. We appreciate your patience as we allow things to get caught up.
You have a number of rights, which, under certain circumstances, you may be able to exercise in relation to the personal information that we process about you.
These rights include:
- The right to access a copy of the personal information we hold about you;
- The right to correction of inaccurate personal information we hold about you;
- The right to restrict our use of your personal information;
- The right to have your personal information deleted from our systems (also known as the “Right to Erasure” or “Right to be Forgotten”);
- The right of data portability;
- The right to object to our use of your personal information; and
- The right to opt out of the sale or sharing of your personal information.
Some important details about these rights:
- Where we rely on consent as the legal basis on which we process your personal information, you may withdraw that consent at any time.
- The “Right to be Forgotten” is not an absolute right, and must be considered in light of our relevant business obligations, legal requirements, as well as the rights and freedoms of other data subjects .
- We will need to positively verify your identity before we can fulfill your privacy rights requests. This helps us to protect you and others against fraudulent requests.
- We will not discriminate against you (whether you are a customer, visitor, or employee) in the exercise of your privacy rights under this Privacy Notice.
- We welcome your inquiries, comments, concerns, and requests to assert your privacy rights.
If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact the Rightworks Privacy Office via one of the methods detailed in the “Contact Us” section below.
Automated Decision Making and Profiling
We use automated decision making, including profiling, in certain circumstances, such as when it is in our legitimate interests to do so, or where we have a right to do so because it is necessary for us to enter into, and perform, a contract with you.
We use profiling to enable us to give you the best service, including specific marketing which we believe you will be interested in.
You have the right not to be subject to any decision based solely upon automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effects upon you, or affects you in any other material way.
If you believe that you have been unfairly impacted by automated decision making on the part of Rightworks, you may request clarification and/or a review of that decision by contacting the Rightworks Privacy Office using the details in the “Contact Us” section below.
How Long Do We Keep Your Personal Information?
We will keep your personal information for the purposes set out in this Privacy Notice, and in accordance with the law and relevant regulations.
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary for the stated purpose(s).
For information on how long we retain your business data (data that we host on your behalf), please see the Rightworks General Terms and Conditions, or the Terms and Conditions specific to the Rightworks product or service you are using, as applicable.
We take protecting your personal information seriously, and we continuously assess and monitor our security systems and practices.
Some of the controls that we have in place are:
- Limiting physical access to our buildings and user access to our systems to only those that we believe are entitled to be there;
- Using technology controls for our information systems, such as firewalls, user verification, strong data encryption, and separation of roles, systems, and data;
- Proactively monitoring our business systems and technology infrastructure using a “detect and respond” information security function;
- Following industry best practices to operate and continually improve our robust information security management system; and
- Enforcing a “need to know” policy for access to data and systems.

Our web sites feature links to outside information, products, and services that are not under the control of Rightworks. Please be sure to read and understand the terms, conditions, limitations, intellectual property rights, and/or any related privacy policies that may apply to this external content, or to the organizations that provide it.
We also use third-party web components, such as forms, buttons and widgets, that are provided by (or hosted by) other entities.
