VIII. California and Other State Privacy Information


The California Consumer Privacy Act or “CCPA” (Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.100 et seq.), as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”) and privacy laws in Virginia [Colorado, Connecticut, and Utah], afford consumers residing in those states certain rights with respect to their personal information. If you are a resident of one of those states, this section applies to you as further described below.

If you are a California applicant or employee, employee applicant, or contractor, please refer to the LSC Communications Privacy Notice for California Applicants/Employees for a description of LSC Communications’ privacy practices in that context, and if you are a California business contact, please see our California Business Privacy Notice.

We do not use or disclose sensitive personal information for the purpose of inferring characteristics about you. We retain personal information for as long as necessary to carry out the purposes for which we originally collected it and for other purposes described in this privacy policy.


California law requires that we provide transparency about personal information we “sell.” “Sale,” for the purposes of the CCPA, broadly means scenarios in which we have disclosed personal information with partners in exchange for valuable consideration. In the preceding twelve (12) months, LSC Communications has not sold personal information.

We do not knowingly sell or share personal information about consumers under the age of 16.


California’s privacy law requires that we notify you if we provide you a program, benefit, or other offering, related to the collection, deletion, or sale of personal information, which it defines as a “financial incentive.” We offer coupons to prospective and current LSC Communications consumers. Sometimes, consumers sign up or provide us their personal information (e.g., email address) in order to receive our coupons. As such, under the CCPA, our coupons and product incentives may be considered financial incentives provided in exchange for the collection and retention of personal information.

We offer these coupons to enhance our relationship with you or so you can enjoy or try our products at a lower price. There is no obligation to opt-in and consumers may opt-out at any time. The details of each program are contained in each such program offering.

The consumer data received in exchange for your participation is dependent on a number of factors, including, for example, whether and to what extent you take advantage of any offerings and whether and to what extent you opt out of any offerings but is roughly equivalent to the value of the coupon or product offered.


The CPRA requires that we notify you if we “Share” your personal information with third parties. For purposes of the CPRA, “Sharing” means that we make available or otherwise disclose your information to third parties for cross-context behavioral advertising, such as targeting of advertising to you based on your personal information obtained from your activity across businesses, websites, apps, and services other than our Services.

Accordingly, we “Share” your information for Targeted Advertising. Specifically, we disclose your identifiers and internet or other network activity with Service Providers and third parties with whom you direct us to disclose your personal information.

To opt out of targeted advertising, sharing, and sales of your personal information, please follow the prompts here.


Subject to certain limitations, you have the right to (1) request to know more about the categories and specific pieces of personal information we collect, use, and disclose, (2) request correction of your personal information, (3) request deletion of your personal information, (4) opt out of any “sales” or “sharing” of your personal information that may be occurring, and (5) not be discriminated against for exercising these rights. You may make these requests by calling 844-572-5720 or sending an email to We will verify your request by asking you to provide information related to your recent interactions with us.

If we receive your request from an authorized agent and they do not provide a valid power of attorney, we may ask the authorized agent to provide proof that you gave the agent signed permission to submit the request to exercise rights on your behalf. In the absence of a valid power of attorney, we may also require you to verify your own identity directly with us or confirm to us that you otherwise provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request. If you are an authorized agent seeking to make a request, please call 844-572-5720.
