Personal Information You Share
When you use some Microban services, applications or post on a Microban forum or social networking service, the personal information and content you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to share or submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a forum posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.

- With Your Consent - We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Microban when we have your consent to do so.

How Microban Protects Personal Information
We work hard to protect Microban and our users from unauthorized access or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of information we hold. However, despite these efforts to secure personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of personal information during its transmission or its storage on our systems.
Retention and Deletion
Personal information that we process for any purpose is not kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose, and in any event we will not retain personal information any longer than permissible by applicable laws or regulations.
Third Party Links
The Sites may contain links to webpages operated by parties other than Microban. We do not control such websites and are not responsible for their contents or the privacy policies or other practices of such websites. Our inclusion of links to such websites does not imply any endorsement of the material on such websites or any association with their operators. Further, it is up to the User to take precautions to ensure that whatever links the User selects or software the User downloads (whether from this Site or other websites) is free of such items as viruses, worms, trojan horses, defects and other items of a destructive nature. These websites and services may have their own privacy policies, which the User will be subject to upon linking to the third party's website. Microban strongly recommends that each User review the third party’s terms and policies.
The Sites and services are not intended for use by children. We do not intentionally gather personally identifiable information about visitors who are under the age of 13 (or, for data subjects located within a Member State of the European Union and/or the United Kingdom, visitors under the age of 16) (a “Child”). If a Child has provided us with personally identifiable information, a parent or guardian of that Child may contact us to have the information deleted from our records. If you believe that we might have any personal information from a Child, please contact us at email@example.com or at the contact information in the “Contact Us” section of this document. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected the personal information of a Child, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
This Section applies to our collection and use of “Personal Information” if you are a resident of California and such Personal Information is subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 and its implementing regulations (the “CCPA”). This Section describes (1) the categories of Personal Information, collected, and disclosed by us, subject to CCPA, (2) your privacy rights under CCPA, and (3) how to exercise your rights.
When we use the term “Personal Information” in the context of the CCPA, we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California consumer or household.
If you would like to receive a copy of this Section in an alternate format (e.g., printable) or language, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Categories of Personal Information Collected, Used, and Shared
In accordance with California law, we may have collected and share the following categories of Personal Information within the past 12 months:
- Identifiers - A real name, Internet Protocol address, email address, and online identifiers.

We share each of these categories of Personal Information with our service providers to the extent necessary for them to facilitate our business purposes. We also share this Personal Information for the purposes set forth in “How We Share Information” section above. Additionally, within the past 12 months, some of our online advertisers may have used and disclosed Usage Information collected automatically from our Sites. This may be a sale as broadly defined under the CCPA and we therefore provide you with the right to opt-out of this ‘sale’ of Personal Information as described above and via our cookie preference page (accessible via the footer of our Site).
Your California Privacy Rights
If you are a resident of California, you may have the following rights:
The right to be notified of what categories of Personal Information will be collected at or before the point of collection and the purposes for which they will be used and shared.
The right to request the categories of Personal Information that we collected in the previous twelve (12) months, the categories of sources from which the Personal Information was collected, the specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you, and the business purposes for which such Personal Information is collected and shared. You may also have the right to request the categories of Personal Information which were disclosed for business purposes, and the categories of third parties in the twelve (12) months preceding your request for your Personal Information.
The right to receive the Personal Information you have previously provided to us.
The right to have your Personal Information deleted. However, please be aware that we may not fulfill your request for deletion if we (or our service provider(s)) are required or permitted to retain your Personal Information for one or more of the following categories of purposes: (1) to complete a transaction for which the Personal Information was collected, provide a good or service requested by you, or complete a contract between us and you; (2) to ensure our website integrity, security, and functionality; (3) to comply with applicable law or a legal obligation, or exercise rights under the law (including free speech rights); or (4) to otherwise use your Personal Information internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided it.
The right to opt-out of the sale of your Personal Information. As noted above, in the past 12 months, we enabled advertisers to collect certain information from the Site, which advertisers may use to improve their interest-based advertising networks. Regardless of whether this is a ‘sale’ you may opt-out of interest-based advertising as described above and via our cookie preference page (accessible via the footer of our Site).
If you would like to exercise your rights listed above, please send (or have your authorized agent send) an email to email@example.com. Please note: You will not be discriminated against in any way by virtue of your exercise of the rights listed below, which means we will not deny goods or services to you, provide a different prices or rates for goods or services to you, or provide a different level or quality of goods or services to you.
We must verify your identity before fulfilling your requests. If we cannot initially verify your identity, we may request additional information to complete the verification process. Any Personal Information you disclose to us for purposes of verifying your identity will solely be used for the purpose of verification. If you are an authorized agent making a request on behalf of a California consumer, we will also need to verify your identity, which may require proof of your written authorization or evidence of a power of attorney.
We may deny certain requests, or only fulfill some in part, as permitted or required by law. For example, if you request to delete Personal Information, we may retain Personal Information that we need to retain for legal purposes (e.g., tax accounting). You have a right not to receive discriminatory treatment by any business when you exercise your California privacy rights.
The CCPA gives California Consumers the right to lodge a complaint with the California Attorney General’s office. The Attorney General’s office may be contacted at https://oag.ca.gov/contact/consumer-complaint-against-business-or-company or by telephone at: (916) 210-6276.
