1.3 Connexity is a service provider under the CCPA.
1.4 The disclosure of personal information to Connexity is not for monetary or other valuable consideration.
1.5 Connexity will only process personal information on behalf of Company for fraud prevention, pricing optimization, ad placement, advertising campaign optimization, invoice amount, payment or invoice detail verification, or for any other business purpose set forth in the Agreement. In addition, (1) Connexity will not retain, use, or disclose personal information for any purpose other than for the specific purpose of performing the services specified in the contract for the business, or as otherwise permitted by the CCPA, as reasonably determined by Connexity; (2) Connexity will not further collect, sell, or use consumer personal information except as reasonably necessary and proportionate to achieve the operational purpose for which the information was collected or processed or, in Connexity’s reasonable discretion, for another operational purpose that is compatible with the context in which the personal information was collected; and (3) unless Company directs Connexity to sell personal information on Company’s behalf, Connexity is prohibited from selling such personal information.

Without limiting the foregoing, Connexity may also use personal information (i) internally to build or improve the quality of its services, (ii) to detect data security incidents, or protect against fraudulent or illegal activity, and (iii) for the purposes enumerated in Cal. Civil Code section 1798.145, subsections (a)(1) through (a)(4).

1.7 Connexity shall promptly and in good faith take such actions and provide such information and assistance as Company may reasonably request to enable Company to honor requests of individuals to exercise their rights under the CCPA, including requests to access, delete or opt-out of sale of personal information pertaining to them. If feasible and to the extent required by the CCPA, Connexity shall give Company written notice of any such requests that Connexity may receive directly from consumers that pertain to the services provided to Company and performed by Connexity for Company under the Agreement.
2.0 Personal Information Categories. Connexity may process the following categories of personal information, as defined and classified by Cal. Civ.
