MaxMind and CCPA | Do Not Sell My Personal Information Requests

Post by henk » 27 Jan 2020 23:08

After the registration for the new free GeoIP db, I just received this mail, classified as Spam, and would like to ask the eFa users about this CCPA. :doh:
I sure am no California resident, so opt-out of the sale of their personal information with MaxMind is kinda impossible. :snooty:


Dear GeoIP2/GeoLite2 User,

The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) took effect on January 1,
2020. Under the CCPA, California residents have the right to opt out of the
sale of their personal information as defined by the CCPA. Where a business
receives a request from a California resident to opt out of the sale of
their personal information, the business must notify all third parties to
whom it has sold the personal information of the California resident within
the prior 90 days that the California resident has exercised their right to
opt-out of the sale of their personal information and instruct the third
party not to further sell the personal information.

In order to address this requirement, MaxMind has created a “Do Not
Sell” page containing the IP addresses of any California residents who
have exercised their right to opt-out of the sale of their personal
information with MaxMind. The “Do Not Sell” page is available from your
MaxMind account portal at
https://www.maxmind.com/en/accounts/cur ... l-requests
https://www.maxmind.com/en/accounts/cur ... l-requests. Once you
log into your account you can navigate to this page by clicking on the Do
Not Sell My Personal Information Requests link from the left-hand
navigation menu. We are also working on a notification method via API, more
details to come to soon.

The “Do Not Sell” page constitutes our instruction to you that, to the
extent any transfer of personal information by MaxMind to you of a
California resident listed on the “Do Not Sell” page constitutes a
sale, you are not to further sell such personal information. Without
limiting your obligations under the CCPA, MaxMind requires that, at a
minimum, the IP addresses and networks listed on the “Do Not Sell” page
must not be used in your products or services for marketing or advertising
purposes. As a GeoIP2/GeoLite2 User, it is your obligation to check the
“Do Not Sell” page on at least a weekly basis, and ensure your
compliance with the CCPA. To help make this process easier, MaxMind is
working on a mechanism by which you can programmatically receive updates to
the page.

By continuing to use the GeoIP2/GeoLite2 services, you agree to comply with
our instructions and not use any information on the “Do Not Sell” page
except as strictly necessary to effectuate the California residents’
requests.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at
legal@maxmind.com mailto:legal@maxmind.com.

Regards,

MaxMind Team
