Check Point California Resident Privacy Notice

Effective Date: March 24, 2022

This California Resident Privacy Notice (“Notice”) supplements the information and disclosures contained in our Privacy Policy. It applies to individuals residing in California from whom we collect Personal Information as a business under the CCPA.


As used in this Notice, Personal Information means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household, or as otherwise defined by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (California Civil Code §§ 1798.100 to 1798.199) and its implementing regulations, as amended or superseded from time to time (“CCPA”).

Personal Information does not include information that is:

  • lawfully made available from government records;
  • deidentified or aggregated; or
  • otherwise excluded from the scope of the CCPA.

The chart below provides the categories of Personal Information we have collected and disclosed for a business purpose in the preceding twelve (12) months since this Notice was last updated.  The examples of Personal Information provided for each category reflect each category’s statutory definition and may not reflect all the specific types of Personal Information associated with each category.

Category We Collect and Disclose
Identifiers We may collect and disclose information such as name, postal address, internet protocol address, unique personal identifier, online identifier, email address, account name, or other similar identifiers.
Categories of Personal Information in Cal. Civ. Code Section 1798.80(e) We may collect and disclose information such as name, address, telephone number, or employment information.
Commercial Information We may collect and disclose information such as which products or services users purchase, obtained, or considered.
Internet or Other Electronic Network Activity Information We may collect and disclose information such as your browsing history, search history, and information regarding your interaction with an internet website, application, or advertising.
Geolocation Data We may collect and disclose your precise physical location.
Professional or Employment-Related Information If you apply for a job with us, we may collect and disclose information such as job application or resume information, past and current job history, and job performance information.

While selling is often understood to mean exchanging a good or service for money, the CCPA adopts a broader definition of the term “sale.”  Under the CCPA, a “sale” may mean an exchange for money, but it may also include other instances of sharing Personal Information where no money is exchanged at all.  Check Point does not sell Personal Information as is frequently understood by the expression (we do not receive money for sharing Personal Information), but it does share Personal Information with third parties in a fashion that may be considered a “sale” under the CCPA’s broader definition of the term.  For example, in the 12 months before the effective date listed on this Notice, Check Point has “sold” Identifiers (such as name and email address), Commercial Information, and Internet or Other Electronic Network Activity Information (such as information regarding browsing history) to third parties, such as sponsors of events you attend to let you know about offers and other services in which you may be interested.  You can opt out of this type of “sale” of your Personal Information under the CCPA as described below.
