Privacy Notice to California Residents

Effective Date:  December 10, 2020

If you are a California resident, California law provides you with certain privacy rights. As of January 1, 2020, pursuant to California Civil Code 1798.100 et seq., the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), California residents have the following rights:

Your Right to Access Specific Information and Data Portability

You may request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information in the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your personal information request, we will disclose to you up to the limits permitted under applicable law:

Your Right to Request Deletion

You may request that we delete any of the personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. We may deny your request if the information that you are requesting that we delete relates to your past, current or prospective employment with Pulse Biosciences, including but not limited to information necessary to administer Pulse Biosciences’ employee benefits programs.

We may also deny your request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:

Your Right to Opt-Out

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to opt out of the disclosure of your personal information by Pulse Biosciences to third parties for those third parties' direct marketing purposes. We do not disclose your personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to it. If this Privacy Notice to California Residents were to change, you can opt-out of such disclosures by sending us an email privacy@pulsebiosciences.com or writing to us at the mailing address provided below.

We do not sell personal information to third parties and have not knowingly sold any Personal Information of California Consumers in the past 12 months.  If that should change, subject to certain limitations and notice, you will have the right to direct us not to sell your personal information.

Exercising Your CCPA Rights

To exercise any of the CCPA rights described above, please submit a verifiable personal information request to us by either emailing us at privacy@pulsebiosciences.com or writing to us at the mailing address provided below.

Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf may submit a personal information request. If you elect to use an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf, Pulse Biosciences may require additional information from the authorized agent. 

You may only submit two personal information requests within a 12-month period. The verifiable personal information request must:

Response Timing and Format: We endeavor to respond to a personal information request within 45 days of our receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.  We will deliver our written response by email or mail, at your option. If provided electronically, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is in a portable and readily useable format. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.

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

Your Right to Non-Discrimination: Unless permitted or required by law, if you exercise any of your rights under the CCPA, we will not:

At this time, Pulse Biosciences does not offer any different rates for goods or services based on your decision to opt-out of certain information sharing. If that changes in the future, Pulse Biosciences will disclose the financial terms of the revised rates.
