  • The categories of personal information we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting that personal information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.

  • disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

Deletion Request Rights

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 may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

  • Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide goods or services that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our banking relationship with you. 
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities. 
  • Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality. 
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law. 
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.). 
  • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information's deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research's achievement, if you previously provided informed consent. 
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us. 
  • Comply with a legal obligation. 
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

Correction Request Rights

You have the right to request that we correct any of your personal information that we collected from you that is inaccurate or false.  Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will correct (and direct our service providers to correct) your personal information in our records, unless an exception applies. 

 We may deny your correction request if the request:

  • Conflicts with federal or state laws or there is an exception to the CCPA.
  • Documentation is inadequate.
  • Compliance proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort
  • Is believed in good faith to be fraudulent or abuse.


Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

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. To designate an authorized agent, please complete the Right to Know and Right to Delete Request form, include the contact information for you and your authorized agent in the space provided, and sign and date the form.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative, which may include:
    • Name
    • Address
    • Telephone Number
    • Email Address
    • Account Number
    • Account Type
    • Transaction Date (non-accountholders)
    • Transaction Type (non-accountholders)
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

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 the personal information relates to you.

Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.

We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

We will disclose and deliver the required information to consumer free of charge within 45 days of receiving a verifiable consumer request from the consumer. We shall promptly take steps to determine whether the request is a verifiable consumer request, but this shall not extend our duty to disclose and deliver the information within 45 days of receipt of the consumer's request. However, the time period to provide the required information may be extended once by an additional 45 days when reasonably necessary, provided the consumer is provided notice of the extension within the first 45-day period. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.

Our disclosure shall cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of the verifiable consumer request and shall be made in writing, and delivered by mail or electronically at the consumer's option in a readily useable format that allows the consumer to transmit this information from one entity to another entity without hindrance. We will not require the consumer to create an account with us in order to make a verifiable consumer request.

Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights

If you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information at any time (the "right to opt-out"). We do not sell the personal information of consumers and minors we actually know are less than 16 years of age. Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time. PCB Bank does not sell personal information therefore it is not necessary to opt-out.

Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

  • Deny you goods or services.
  • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
  • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

We may, however, offer financial incentives in the future, including payments to consumers as compensation, for the collection of personal information, the sale of personal information, or the deletion of personal information. We may also offer a different price, rate, level, or quality of goods or services to the consumer if that price or difference is directly related to the value provided to the consumer by the consumer's data. Such financial incentives shall be in compliance with and as permitted by CCPA, and refrain from using financial incentive practices that are unjust, unreasonable, coercive, or usurious in nature.
