Information for California Residents; Your California Privacy Rights

Last Updated September 2023

This section is addressed to California residents only and provides more information about your rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act or “CCPA” (California Civil Code Section 1798.100 et seq.), as amended, and how Intel processes California residents’ personal information in compliance with the CCPA.

Subject to certain exceptions, the CCPA grants to California residents the rights to: be notified about the collection, use, disclosure, sale or sharing of their personal information; request access to, deletion of, or correction of their personal information; request to opt out of the “sale” or “sharing” of personal information (where such information is sold or shared); and to not be discriminated against for exercising such rights.

Intel does not sell your personal information. If you wish to exercise your right to opt-out of Intel using your personal information for cross-contextual targeted advertising purposes (called “sharing” in the CCPA), you may do so by going to the homepage and then clicking on the “Do Not Share My Personal Information” link at the bottom of that page. You can request access to, correction of or deletion of your personal information by using the Intel Data Privacy Request Form. If you request a deletion of your personal information, please note that Intel may still need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes, to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting such deletion, to comply with applicable law, or for other purposes permitted by CCPA. If you submit a request to exercise rights under CCPA, Intel will ask you to provide certain information to verify your identity. This information will depend on your prior interactions with Intel and the sensitivity of personal information at issue. If Intel denies your request, we will explain why.

You can designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA on your behalf in certain circumstances. If you use an authorized agent for this purpose, Intel may ask you to verify your identity or that you provided the authorized agent signed permission to submit a request under the CCPA. If you provide an authorized agent with power of attorney pursuant to Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465, it may not be necessary to perform these steps and Intel will respond to any request from such authorized agent in accordance with the CCPA.

The Intel Privacy Notice describes the categories of personal information (including sensitive personal information) that Intel collects and how Intel uses such personal information. If Intel collects sensitive personal information, we limit our use of the sensitive information to uses: (1) you have authorized, (2) that are required to fulfill your requests for goods or services, or (3) that are otherwise allowed by the CCPA or required by other laws or regulations.

The categories of personal information collected from California residents over the preceding 12 months include:

  • Identifiers such as first name, last name, email address, unique device identifiers or other online identifier;
  • Commercial information such as purchase history;
  • Internet or other electronic network activity information, including connection information such as the name of an internet service provider, browser type, language and time zone, mobile phone number and IP address;
  • Interaction with Intel’s software or apps such as usage data, type and version of operating system, hardware version, device settings, software types, battery and signal strength, screen resolution, device manufacturer and model, language, and Internet browser type and version;
  • Audio, electronic, visual, thermal, or similar information, such as photos;
  • Professional or employment-related information;
  • Education information;

Other information that relates to or is capable of being associated with an individual.

The categories of sensitive personal information collected from California residents over the preceding 12 months include:

  • Social security number;
  • Account log-in, financial account, debit card, or credit card number in combination with any required security or access code, password, or credentials allowing access to an account;
  • Precise geolocation;
  • Racial or ethnic origin;
  • Biometric information used for the purpose of identification such as in connection with the use of security cameras at Intel sites.

Intel, as detailed in the Intel Privacy Notice, collects personal information from a variety of sources (such as directly from you, through device and product operations, from third parties and through Intel’s sites and services), and uses such information for business and commercial purposes. During the preceding 12 months, Intel has disclosed some such information for a variety of business purposes, such as to help Intel provide services, to respond to requests and offer customer support, to fulfill legal and contractual obligations and to build its innovative products. Please refer to the Intel Privacy Notice for the categories of third parties to whom Intel discloses personal information. When Intel receives de-identified information from third parties, Intel will not use that information to attempt to re-identify any individuals. Similarly, when Intel discloses de-identified information to third parties, Intel requires a contractual commitment from those third parties to not attempt to re-identify any individuals.
