The CCPA provides California residents (“consumers”) with the following rights:
Please note that the CCPA includes an exemption for certain personal information that is collected in a business-to-business (“B2B”) context. Therefore, the rights described above do not apply to personal data that is subject to the B2B exception. Also, for California job applicants, employees, and former employees of our US Ingersoll-Rand affiliates, separate notices and policies exist which inform them about our activities and their rights under the CCPA with respect to their personal information.
If you are a California resident, or an authorized agent acting on behalf of a California resident, and would like to exercise your right to know or delete, please email [email protected] or submit a CCPA Data Privacy request via Ingersoll Rand’s global hotline at 1-844-439-4693. All CCPA requests must provide sufficient information for us to reasonably verify the identity of the person making the request, therefore we require that you provide us two or three pieces of personal information which we will match to personal information we maintain in our records. Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf (i.e., your authorized agent), may make a request related to your personal information. We may require an authorized agent to provide verification that they are acting on your behalf when they submit a request related to your personal information.

In such case, the processing of personal data by the relevant Ingersoll-Rand entities may be based on the necessity to perform a contract with you or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract, because we have a legal obligation to do so, or because it is in our legitimate interest to do so (for instance if you are working for one of our suppliers or customers who have to receive your data for normal business operations, or because you want to browse through our website), or, alternatively, may be based on your consent (for instance when you have consented to the use of your personal data for direct marketing purposes).
