A. Your California Privacy Rights

Subject to applicable law, Applicants have the following rights:

  • Right to Know: You have the right to submit a verifiable request up to twice in a 12-month period for specific pieces of your personal information obtained from you and for information about Company’s collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information.
    Please note that the CPRA’s right to obtain “specific pieces” does not grant a right to the whole of any document that contains personal information, but only to discrete items of personal information. Moreover, Applicants have a right to know categories of sources of personal information and categories of external recipients to which personal information is disclosed, but not the individual sources or recipients.
  • Right to Delete: You have the right to submit a verifiable request for the deletion of personal information that you have provided to Company.
  • Right to Correct: You have the right to submit a verifiable request for the correction of inaccurate personal information maintained by Company, taking into account the nature of the personal information and the purposes of processing the personal information.
B. How to Exercise Your Rights

Company will respond to requests to know, delete, and correct in accordance with applicable law if it can verify the identity of the individual submitting the request. You can exercise these rights in the following ways:

  • Call 1-877-956-2532
  • Email hr@pacifichomecare.com or complete the request form available here
C. How We Will Verify Your Request

If you submit a request through an adequately secure password-protected account that you created before the date of your request, we will use the authentication mechanisms in the account to verify your identity. Otherwise, we match personal information that you provide us against personal information we maintain in our files. The more risk entailed by the request (e.g., a request for specific pieces of personal information), the more items of personal information we may request to verify you. If we cannot verify your identity to a sufficient level of certainty to respond security to your request, we will let you know promptly and explain why we cannot verify your identity.

D. Authorized Agents

If an authorized agent submits a request on your behalf, the authorized agent must submit with the request a document signed by you that authorizes the authorized agent to submit the request on your behalf. In addition, we may ask you or your authorized agent to follow the applicable process described above for verifying your identity. You can obtain the “Authorized Agent Designation” form by contacting us at hr@pacifichomecare.com. This provision does not apply if you have provided a power of attorney compliant with the California Probate Code.

E. Company’s Non-Discrimination and Non-Retaliation Policy

Company will not unlawfully discriminate or retaliate against you for exercising your privacy rights under the California Privacy Rights Act.


If we change this Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on this page and update the Privacy Policy modification date above.
