The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) provides California consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information.The following sections describe your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past twelve (12) months.Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you:
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions.Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records unless an exception applies.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights unless permitted by the CCPA.
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by using one of the following options:
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information.You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period.The verifiable consumer request must:
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm that the personal information relates to you.Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.However, we will consider requests referencing your password protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account and you correctly respond to questions about your account.We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
If you live in the European Economic Area (EEA), you have a number of rights with regard to your personal data including the right to access or port your personal data and to have any inaccuracies in your personal data corrected.In many cases where we process your information, you may also have a right to restrict or limit the ways in which we use your personal data.
In certain circumstances, you also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data by us.You can request that we delete your personal data and we will carry out this request unless certain exceptional reasons arise permitting us to keep certain personal data about you.
If you are based in the EEA and you wish to raise a concern about our use of your data (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with the Irish Data Protection Commissioner (who is Xilinx’s lead supervisory authority) or your local supervisory authority in the country in which you reside, whichever is more convenient.
