Your Rights and Choices

The CPRA provides workforce members (California residents) with specific rights regarding their Personal Information. This section describes your CPRA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights

You have the right to request that Janome disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your Personal Information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, Deletion and Correction Rights), we will disclose to you:

  • The categories of Personal Information we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources for the Personal Information we collected about you.
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that Personal Information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that Personal Information.
  • The specific pieces of Personal Information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
  • If we sold or disclosed your Personal Information for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing:
  • sales, identifying the Personal Information categories that each category of recipient purchased; and
  • disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the Personal Information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that Janome delete any of your Personal Information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, Deletion and Correction Rights), 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 for the following reasons:

  1.     That the Personal Information is needed for employment purposes, such as for payroll, government data reporting, and health care.
  2.     Performing a contract between Janome and you (workforce member), such as to award stock options or pension benefits.
  3.     Retaining Personal Information contained in security logs to satisfy compliance requirements and litigation demands.
  4.     Complying with other laws applicable to our business, such as needing to retain certain employment records for the required data retention period.
  5.     That deleting the information prevents us from exercising our legal rights, such as needing to retain the information to defend against possible legal claims.
  6.     Any other permitted business justification for retaining the Personal Information exists.

 

Right to Correct

You have the right to request Janome to correct inaccurate Personal Information collected about you. Janome will make commercially reasonable efforts to correct any inaccurate Personal Information we hold about a workforce member within 45 days of receiving a verifiable request. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

Right to Opt-Out of Personal Information Sales and Sharing

You have the right to direct us to not sell or share your Personal Information for cross-context behavioral advertising purposes at any time (the "right to opt-out"). Please note that we do not currently engage in sales or sharing of Personal Information triggering such opt-out requirements.

Right to Limit Disclosure or Use of Sensitive Personal Information

You have the right to limit the disclosure or use of your Sensitive Personal Information that has been collected or processed with the purpose of inferring characteristics about you. Please note that we do not currently collect or use Sensitive Personal Information to infer characteristics about workforce members triggering such limitation rights.

Exercising Access, Data Portability, Deletion and Correction Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, deletion and correction rights described above, please submit a verifiable request to us by either:

  • Calling us at 1-800-631-0183 (Please select Option 3, then Option 3 again).
  • Emailing us at janomehr@janome-america.com.

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable request related to your Personal Information. To designate an authorized agent, you must first verify your identity directly with us and provide written authorization to your agent to make requests on your behalf.

You may only make a verifiable request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or an authorized representative, which may include:
  • Your name, address, and any other information we may require to verify your identity.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to 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.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable 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, specifically .csv format.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable 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.

Non-Retaliation/Non-Discrimination

We will not retaliate or discriminate against you for exercising any of your CPRA rights.
