  • b. Marketing and Advertising.
  • From time to time, we may contact you with information about our products and services, including sending you marketing or advertising messages and asking for your feedback on our products and services. For some marketing or advertising messages, we may use personal data we collect about you to help us determine the most relevant marketing or advertising information to share with you. You can unsubscribe at any time from our marketing or advertising emails by contacting us at

  • Due to the confidential nature of data processing, we may ask you to provide proof of identity when exercising the above rights.

3.2 California residents have the following rights:

Unless otherwise expressly stated, all terms in this section have the same meaning as defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”).

3.2(a) Sensitive Personal Information

Certain data elements we collect and use to provide the Services may be deemed “sensitive personal information” under CCPA. These include your username and password to access your account. We do not use or disclose such sensitive personal information to “infer” characteristics as defined under the CCPA, or for any purpose other than that which is necessary to provide the Services as specified in the CCPA.

3.2(b) Sales and Sharing of Personal Information (Targeted Advertising)

We use cookies and similar tracking technologies that enable certain advertising networks, social media companies, analytics services, and other third-party businesses to collect and disclose your personal information directly from your browser or device when you visit or interact with our Services or otherwise engage with us online. In some cases, we may upload personal information to certain of these partners for advertising or analytics purposes.

To opt out of these “sales” or “sharing” of personal information (as these terms are defined under the CCPA or other applicable US state privacy laws), you must:

  • Toggle cookies off in your browser or enable Global Privacy Control on your browser; and
  • Submit a request by emailing

Note that the above opt-out right does not apply where we have appropriately limited our partners to be our “service providers” or “processors” (as these terms are defined under the CCPA or other applicable US state privacy laws).

3.2(c) California Privacy Rights

As a California resident, you may be able to exercise the following rights in relation to the personal information about you that we have collected (subject to certain limitations at law):

The Right to Know any or all of the following information relating to your personal information we have collected and disclosed in the last 12 months, upon verification of your identity:

  • The specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you;
  • The categories of personal information we have collected about you;
  • The categories of sources of the personal information;
  • The categories of personal information that we have disclosed to third parties for a business purpose, and the categories of recipients to whom this information was disclosed;

  • The business or commercial purposes for collecting, selling, or sharing the personal information.
  • The Right to Request Deletion of personal information we have collected from you, subject to certain exceptions.
  • The Right to Request Correction of inaccurate personal information.
  • The Right to Opt Out of Personal Information Sales or Sharing to third parties now or in the future.

You also have the right to be free of discrimination for exercising these rights. However, please note that if the exercise of these rights limits our ability to process personal information (such as in the case of a deletion request), we may no longer be able to provide you our Services or engage with you in the same manner.

3.2(d) How to Exercise Your California Privacy Rights

Please see Section 3.2(b) above to exercise your right to opt out of personal information sales or sharing.

To exercise your rights to know, correct, or delete, please submit a request by emailing with the subject line “California Rights Request.”

We will need to verify your identity before processing your request. In order to verify your identity, we will generally require either the successful login to your account (if applicable) and/or the matching of sufficient information you provide us to the information we maintain about you in our systems. Although we try to limit the personal information collected in connection with a request to know, correct, or delete, certain requests may require us to obtain additional personal information from you. In certain circumstances, we may decline a request to exercise the right to know, correct, or delete, particularly where we are unable to verify your identity or locate your information in our systems, or as permitted by law.

3.2(e) California’s “Shine the Light” Law

In addition to the rights described above, California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code § 1798.83) permits California residents that have an established business relationship with us to request certain information regarding our disclosure of certain types of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year.

To make such a request, please send an email to

3.3 Disclosures specific to Colorado, Connecticut, Virginia, and Utah residents:

3.4 Disclosures specific to Nevada residents:

Although we do not currently sell covered information, please contact us at to submit such a request.

3.5 Disclosures specific to Canada residents:

If you live in Canada, you have the following rights:

  • Right to Access. You can ask us to: (i) confirm that we have personal information about you, and (ii) provide you a copy of that information.

4.0 Where Does My Information Reside?

Parsable is a global company, headquartered in the United States. We primarily store your information in the United States and the European Economic Area. To facilitate our global operations, we may transfer and access information from around the world, including from other countries in which Parsable or its customers have operations. When required by law, we will ensure we rely on an appropriate legal mechanism for the transfer, such as your consent, standard contractual clauses (or their equivalent), or adequacy decisions.

5.0 How Does Parsable Protect My Information?

Parsable takes security very seriously. We use appropriate administrative, physical and technical measures to provide appropriate security for your Information, including protection against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage. For more details on our security policies, please see

All customer data is encrypted throughout the Parsable system in-transit and at-rest. We have robust monitoring and automated alerts that allow us to rapidly respond to adverse events in our network 24×7. We run on the most trusted cloud infrastructure providers in the market. Finally, we use independent security researchers to audit and stress our systems. Please note, though, that no website or Internet transmission is completely secure, so while we strive to protect your Information, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, information loss or an Information breach will never occur.

6.0 Why Does Parsable Need My Information?

Parsable as Controller

Parsable only uses your Information when we have a lawful basis for doing so. In most cases, our use is based upon our legitimate interest in processing the Information for specific purposes, as described further in How Does Parsable Use My Information? In other cases, where we are not in a position to balance our legitimate interests against your interests (including your rights and freedoms with respect to your Information), we will obtain your consent before processing your Information. In general, we retain your Information for as long as is necessary to achieve the specific purpose for which it was collected. 

Parsable as Processor

In some cases, Parsable may process your Information on behalf of a Parsable customer or other third party who is acting as the data controller with respect to your Information (the “Controller”). For example, we may process Information that we (or the Controller) collect from you in your capacity as an employee of the Controller. In such cases, your rights with respect to the Information are primarily determined by your relationship with the Controller, and not with us, and certain provisions of this notice may not apply to you.
