If you delete your cookies or if you set your browser to decline cookies, some features of the Services may not be available, work, or work as designed. You may also be able to opt out of or block tracking by interacting directly with the other companies who conduct tracking through our Services.
Please note that opting out of advertising networks’ services or modifying cookie behavior via your device’s controls does not mean that you will not receive advertising while using our Services or on other websites, nor will it prevent the receipt of interest-based advertising from other companies that do not participate in these programs. It will, however, exclude you from interest-based advertising conducted through participating networks, as provided by their policies and choice mechanisms. If you delete your cookies, you may also delete your opt-out preferences.
You may choose to activate a “do-not-track” signal via your browser. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. Because there currently is no industry standard concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals, we currently does not take action in response to these signals.

California Consumer Privacy Act
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides California residents with rights to receive certain disclosures regarding the collection, use, and sharing of personal information, as well as rights to know/access, delete, and limit sharing of personal information. To the extent that we collect personal information that is subject to the CCPA, that information, our practices, and your rights are described below.
Right to Notice at Collection Regarding the Categories of Personal Information Collected
You have the right to receive notice of the categories of personal information we collect, and the purposes for which those categories of personal information will be used. The following table summarizes the categories of personal information we collect, the categories of sources of that information, and whether we disclose or sell that information to service providers or third parties, respectively. The categories we use to describe the information are those enumerated in the CCPA, and additional information about the specific types of personal information we collect is described above in “Information We Collect.” We collect this personal information for the purposes described in the “How We Use and Protect Your Information” section above.
|Category of Personal Information||Categories of Sources||Categories of Entities to which We Disclose Personal Information||Categories of Entities to which We Sell Personal Information|
|Personal Identifiers||You; Clients; Customer.io’s social media pages||Service providers||None|
|Commercial Information||You||Service providers||None|
|Geolocation||You; Customer.io’s analytics partners||Service providers||Analytics and advertising partners (but only with respect to information that Customer.io collects directly, not from Clients)|
|Audio, electronic, visual, thermal, olfactory, or similar information, specifically call recordings||You||Service providers||None|
|Internet or Other Electronic Network Activity Information||You; Clients (via third-party integrations they choose); Customer.io’s analytics partners||Service providers||Analytics and advertising partners (but only with respect to information that Customer.io collects directly, not from Clients)|
We may use any of the categories of information listed above for other business or operational purposes compatible with the context in which the personal information was collected.
*Note on “Selling”: The CCPA defines “sale” and “personal information” broadly to include the information transfer between a website or app and third party tracking technologies. For this reason, Customer.io “sells” personal information.
Right to Opt Out of Sale of Personal Information to Third Parties
You have the right to opt out of any sale of your personal information by Customer.io to third parties. To exercise your right to opt out of the sale of your personal information, please visit our “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” webpage.
Please note that your right to opt out does not apply to our sharing of personal information with service providers, who are parties we engage to perform a function on our behalf and are contractually obligated to use the personal information only for that function.
Right to Know and Request Access to and Deletion of Personal Information
You have the right to request access to personal information collected about you and information regarding the source of that information, the purposes for which we collect it, and the third parties and service providers with whom we share it. You also have the right to request in certain circumstances that we delete personal information that we have collected directly from you. We may have a reason under the law why we do not have to comply with your request, or why we may comply with it in a more limited way than you anticipated. If we do, we will explain that to you in our response.
You may submit a request to exercise your rights to know/access or delete your personal information through one of two means:
- By filling out a Consumer Data Request Form available here.
- By contacting us using the information below.
In order to process your request to know/access or delete personal information we collect, disclose, or sell, we must verify your request. We do this by asking you to provide personal identifiers we can match against information we may have collected from you previously and confirm your request using the email or telephone account stated in the request.
You may authorize another individual or a business registered with the California Secretary of State, called an authorized agent, to make requests on your behalf. We will require verification of the authorized agent’s identity and confirmation that you have authorized them to act on your behalf.
Customer.io does not offer any rewards programs or incentives for the collection or sharing of data at this time.
Special Information for Nevada Residents
Residents of the State of Nevada have the right to opt-out of the sale of certain pieces of their information to other companies who will sell or license their information to others. At this time, Customer.io does not engage in such sales. If you are a Nevada resident and would like more information about our data-sharing practices, please email email@example.com.
Information for Individuals Located in the EEA and Switzerland
We process “Personal Data,” as that term is defined in the EU General Data Protection Regulation, on the following legal bases: (1) with your consent; (2) as necessary to perform our agreement to provide Services; and (3) as necessary for our legitimate interests in providing the Services where those interests do not override your fundamental rights and freedom related to data privacy. Information we collect may be transferred to, and stored, and processed in, the United States or any other country in which we or our affiliates or subcontractors maintain facilities, as described above.
Users that reside in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or Switzerland have the right to lodge a complaint about our data collection and processing actions with the supervisory authority concerned. Contact details for data protection authorities are available here.
If you are a resident of the EEA or Switzerland, you are entitled to certain rights. Please note: In order to verify your identity, we may require you to provide us with information prior to accessing any records containing information about you. These rights include the ability:
- to request from us access to information held about you.
- to ask for the information we hold about you to be rectified if it is inaccurate or incomplete.
- to ask for data to be erased if the data is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, you withdraw consent and no other legal basis for processing exists, or you believe your fundamental rights to data privacy and protection outweigh our legitimate interest in continuing the processing.
- to request that we restrict our processing if we are processing your data based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest as an exercise of official authority (including profiling); using your data for direct marketing (including profiling); or processing your data for purposes of scientific or historical research and statistics.
To submit a request to exercise your rights, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may have a reason under the law why we do not have to comply with your request or may comply with it in a more limited way than you anticipated. If we do, we will explain that to you in our response.
