Information for California Residents
California’s “Shine the Light” Law. California law permits customers in California
to request certain details about how their personal information is shared with
third parties and, in some cases, affiliates if that personal information is
shared for those third parties’ and affiliates’ own direct marketing purposes.
We do not share personal information with third parties or affiliates for those
third parties’ or affiliates’ own direct marketing purposes. Californians may
request information about our compliance with this law by emailing
us at firstname.lastname@example.org or mailing to Cornerstone Building Brands, Inc., Attention: Data Privacy, 10943

this applies to you, attest to the fact that you are a California resident, and

line of the email or the first line of the letter and include your name, street
address, city, state, and ZIP code. Please note that we are only required to
respond to one request per customer each year.
California Consumer Privacy Act. The California Consumer Privacy Act
(the “CCPA”), which provides California consumers certain rights regarding
their personal information (“PI”), became effective on January 1, 2020. As of
that date, the California Attorney General had not completed the rulemaking process
to establish the regulations for covered businesses to implement the law.
Accordingly, we may update information in this section regarding our data
practices and your rights under the CCPA, modify our methods for responding to
your requests, and/or supplement our responses to your requests as we continue
to develop our compliance program to reflect the development of the law and our
understanding of how it relates to our data practices.
If you are a California consumer and
would like to make a request pursuant to your “right to know about personal
information collected, disclosed or sold” (including your right to obtain
copies of specific pieces of PI), your “right to request deletion of personal
information,” or your “right to opt-out of the sale of personal information,”
you may contact us at email@example.com or complete and submit the form, here. We will respond to your request as
soon as we have guidance on how to properly verify your identity and the
appropriate response parameters.
Please note that CCPA rights do not
apply to PI collected from (1) job applicants, current and former employees, or
independent contractors; or (2) representatives of another business in
connection with business communications or transactions.
Examples of the types of PI we may
collect from California consumers, and of the purposes for such collection, are
outlined in the chart below.
Name, physical address, phone
