This Hawkeye Website provides information about the general business and services offered by Publicis Hawkeye, Inc., Catapult Integrated Services, LLC, and Epsilon Agency LLC (collectively, “Hawkeye”).

Any data collected through the https://www.hawkeyeagency.com/ website (the “Website”) including personal information (as defined under applicable data protection laws, and as may be similarly referred to as “personal data” or “personally identifiable information” under applicable data protection laws), will only be used for the purposes set out at Section 03 in this Privacy Notice. Once collected, personal information will not be used for a different incompatible purpose without your consent. Notwithstanding, we may use information that does not identify you (including information that has been aggregated or de-identified) for any purpose except as prohibited by applicable law. For more information please see the “Aggregate, Deidentified, or Anonymised Information” section below. Hawkeye, located at 2828 Routh St, Dallas, TX 75201, is regarded as the Data Controller.

Any questions that you have relating to the processing of personal data by Hawkeye as a processor should be directed to the relevant client.
We take the protection of data privacy very seriously. All personal information collected through the Website will be treated as strictly confidential and will only be used as set out in this Privacy Notice. The applicable data protection laws shall be respected in full.

The information collected and stored by those parties remains subject to their own policies and practices, including what information they share with us, your rights and choices on their services and devices, and whether they store information in the U.S. or elsewhere. We encourage you to read the privacy notices available on other websites you visit.

08. your california rights and choices
The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) provides certain rights to residents of California. This section of the Privacy Notice applies if you are a resident of California (“California Consumer”) and we have collected your personal information. If you are not a California Consumer, this does not apply to you and you should not rely on it. Without being discriminated against for exercising these rights, California Consumers have the right to request that we disclose what personal information we collect from you, to delete that information, and to opt-out of the sale of your personal information, subject to certain restrictions. You also have the right to designate an agent to exercise these rights on your behalf. This section describes how to exercise those rights and our process for handling those requests. (To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may charge a reasonable fee to comply with your request.)
Our website is intended to provide information and services to business clients. You understand and agree that information collected about you is solely within the context of (i) your role as an employee, owner, director, officer, or contractor or (ii) Hawkeye conducting due diligence regarding, or providing or receiving a product or service to or from your employer.
We acknowledge that you may have rights under the CCPA in connection with the personal information we process on behalf of our clients. If personal information about you has been processed by us as a service provider on behalf of a client and you wish to exercise any of the rights described below, please provide the name of our client on whose behalf we processed your personal information. We will refer your request to that client, and will support them to the extent required by applicable law in responding to your request.
A. RIGHT TO REQUEST ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
California Consumers have the right to request that we disclose what categories of your personal information that we collect, use, disclose, or sell. In particular, you may request:
- the specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you;
- the categories of personal information we have collected about you;
- the categories of sources from which the personal information was collected;
- the categories of personal information about you we disclosed for a business purpose or sold;
- the categories of third parties to whom the personal information was disclosed for a business purpose or sold; and
- the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling the personal information.
We do not sell information as the term “sell” is traditionally understood. To the extent “sale” under the CCPA is interpreted to include the activities set out in this Privacy Notice, such as those disclosed in the “Purpose of data collection and legal grounds we rely on” section above, we will comply with applicable law as to such activity. We disclose the following categories of personal information for commercial purposes: identifiers, commercial or transactions information, internet activity, geolocation data, and inferences drawn. Please review the sharing of information sections above for further details about the categories of parties with whom we share information.
B. RIGHT TO REQUEST DELETION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You may also request that we delete any personal information that we collected from you, such as if you have been a customer of ours. (Note that this is different from your right to “opt out” of us selling your personal information, which is described below.) However, we may retain personal information for certain important purposes, such as (a) to protect our business, systems, and users from fraudulent activity, (b) to address technical issues that impair existing functionality (such as de-bugging purposes), (c) as necessary for us, or others, to exercise their free speech or other rights, (d) to comply with law enforcement requests pursuant to lawful process, (e) for scientific or historical research, (f) for our own internal purposes reasonably related to your relationship with us, or to comply with legal obligations. Additionally, we need certain types of information so that we can provide our Website to you.
C. HOW TO EXERCISE YOUR ACCESS, OPT-OUT AND (IF APPLICABLE) DELETION RIGHTS
For security purposes (and as required under California law), we will verify your identity – in part by requesting certain information from you – when you request to exercise your California privacy rights. For instance, if you request categories or specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you, you may need to confirm your possession of an identifier (such as an email address) or to provide a piece of identification that confirms you are the person you claim to be.
D. RIGHT TO NONDISCRIMINATION
We will not deny, charge different prices for, or provide a different level of quality of goods or services if you choose to exercise these CCPA rights.
E. RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OF THE SALE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
California residents may opt out of the “sale” of their personal information. California law broadly defines what constitutes a “sale” – including in the definition making available a wide variety of information in exchange for “valuable consideration.”
Depending what information we have about you, and whether we have included any of it in our marketing products and services, we may have sold (as defined by California law) certain categories of information about you in the last 12 months, as described in the above table in Section II of this Privacy Notice, titled “What personal information do we collect and process.” If you would like to opt out, you may do so as outlined on the following page: Do Not Sell My Personal Information
F. SHINE THE LIGHT
Customers who are residents of California may request (i) a list of the categories of personal information disclosed by us to third parties during the immediately preceding calendar year for those third parties’ own direct marketing purposes; and (ii) a list of the categories of third parties to whom we disclosed such information. To exercise a request, please write us at the email or postal address set out in the “Further Information” section below and specify that you are making a “California Shine the Light Request.” We may require additional information from you to allow us to verify your identity and are only required to respond to requests once during any calendar year.
G. AUTHORIZED AGENTS
You may also designate an agent to make requests to exercise your rights under CCPA as described above. We will take steps both to verify the identity of the person seeking to exercise their rights as listed above, and to verify that your agent has been authorized to make a request on your behalf through providing us with a signed written authorization or a copy of a power of attorney.
09. additional disclosures for nevada residents
Nevada law (NRS 603A.340) requires each business to establish a designated request address where Nevada consumers may submit requests directing the business not to sell certain kinds of personal information that the business has collected or will collect about the consumer. A sale under Nevada law is the exchange of personal information for monetary consideration by the business to a third party for the third party to license or sell the personal information to other third parties. If you are a Nevada consumer and wish to submit a request relating to our compliance with Nevada law, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Website is intended for general audiences, and is not directed at children. We do not knowingly collect personal information (as defined by the U.S. Children’s Privacy Protection Act, or “COPPA”) from children. If you are a parent or guardian and believe we have collected personal information in violation of COPPA, contact us at email@example.com. We will remove the personal information in accordance with COPPA. We do not knowingly “sell,” as that term is defined under the CCPA, the personal information of minors under 16 years old who are California residents.
11. data security
We use a variety of methods, such as firewalls, intrusion detection software and manual security procedures, to secure your data against loss or damage and to help protect the accuracy and security of personal information and to prevent unauthorized access or improper use. Nevertheless, transmission via the internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of information about you. If you think that the Website or any personal information is not secure or that there has been unauthorized access to the Website or your personal information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.
12. data transfers
Your personal information is transferred to or located in the US. The US is not considered to have the same level of data protection as in the EU. However, to the extent we transfer data from the EU, UK, or Switzerland to the US, we will provide appropriate safeguards (for example, under intercompany agreements with appropriate contractual protections or standard contractual clauses).
