Personal data is required to use certain features of the Sites, for example, to create an online account, download resources, purchase training or other materials, take courses, submit job applications, send us questions through our Sites, receive or request data from us, and respond to communications from us. We also collect information you provide which may not be considered personal data, such as information about your organization, the team you work on and what brought you to Sandler or its Sites.
Online Forms. We collect personal data when you fill-out online forms or send other communications through our Sites, such as our "contact us" form, when you sign-up for an account (such as when you want to access the e-Learning Library or create a Sandler Online account), when you request more information about being a franchisee or strategic partner, when you download resources, articles, white papers and other guides, and when you sign-up for a webinar, immersion program, summit or other event.
Online Accounts / Sandler Online. We offer several resources that require you to set-up an account with Sandler, such as when you sign-up for Sandler Online or want to use our e-Learning Library. When you create an account with Sandler through our Sites, we collect your contact information and any other information requested from you at such time. You are also required to choose a password which you should keep confidential. When you are signed into your account, we may link your account with the

For example, we may use Authorize.net or Shopify to power our online store--you can read more about how Authorize.net uses your personal data here: https://usa.visa.com/legal/privacy-policy.html [authorize.net] and how Shopify uses your personal data here: https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy [shopify.com].

To opt-out of other communications (e.g., postal marketing), please contact us as set forth in the "Contact Us" section below. Opting out of marketing communications does not opt you out of other, non-marketing communications from us.

Please refrain from sending Special Categories of personal data to us unless requested during your job application process.

Your rights and choices regarding personal data*
- Right of Access - You may have the right to be informed of and request access to the personal data we process about you. This may allow you to receive a copy of the personal data we process about you.
- Right to Rectification - You may have the right to request that we amend or update inaccurate or incomplete personal data about you.
- Right to Erasure (Deletion) - Under certain circumstances, you may have the right to request deletion of your personal data.

- Right to Data Portability - Under certain circumstances, you have the right to request a copy of your personal data in electronic format and further request that we send such personal data to you or to another party.
- Right To Withdraw Your Consent. In the event we ask for, and receive, your consent to process certain personal data about you, you may withdraw your consent at any time by emailing us at [email protected], and we will comply with such request if required by applicable law. This provision also applies if we secured your consent for marketing purposes.
- Automated Decision Making. Sandler does not make any Automated Decisions on your behalf or about you without first obtaining your consent. In the event we secure your consent to do so, you have the right to object to the processing of personal data via Automated Decision making at any time by contacting us at [email protected]. “Automated Decision” means an automated decision made about an individual person by automated means without any human involvement, including profiling, often where meaningful logic is involved, that produces legal effects that significantly affects the involved individual.

- Sale of Personal Data. Various states and countries define "sale" of personal data differently. If Sandler "sells" your personal data, as such term is described under applicable data privacy law, you may have the right to opt-out of the sale of your personal data. You may submit your opt-out request here: [insert the “DO NOT SELL MY PERSONAL INFORMATION" button]
- Right to Lodge a Complaint. You have the right to lodge a legitimate complaint with the applicable supervisory authority.

The consequences of not providing personal data
Sandler will not be able to provide some Services or provide you with access to certain parts of the Sites without processing certain personal data. For example, we need to collect login and contact information from you when you access certain parts of our Sites, and we need to collect certain contact information from you when you make a purchase.
Sandler will only keep your personal data for so long as it has a reasonable business purpose for doing so or where we are required to keep it by applicable law.
De-Identified or aggregated information
Sandler may collect, use, share, transfer, create and otherwise Process de-identified and aggregated information for any purpose in compliance with applicable laws. Sandler is the sole and exclusive owner of such de-identified and aggregated information, including if Sandler de-identifies personal data so that it is no longer considered personal data under applicable laws
We make commercially reasonable efforts to protect personal data. We protect personal data using technical and organization measures designed to reduce the risks of loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, and alteration of personal data appropriate to the type of personal data processed. If a breach of your personal data occurs, we will notify you of the breach if and as required under applicable law.
HOWEVER, NO DATA TRANSMISSION OVER THE INTERNET OR A DEVICE CAN BE GUARANTEED TO BE 100% SECURE. WHILE WE STRIVE TO PROTECT PERSONAL DATA, WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THE SECURITY OF ANY PERSONAL DATA AND YOU PROVIDE PERSONAL DATA AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Access to personal data in other countries
If you access the Sites from outside the United States, please be aware that personal data may be transferred to, stored in, and Processed in the United States. Certain governmental authorities may not consider the level of protection of personal data in the United States to be equivalent to that required in other jurisdictions.
The European Union (EU) and the United Kingdom (UK) specifically have determined that the United States does not have an adequate level of protection for personal data. Further, certain countries require that personal data transferred to other countries can only occur if the recipient resides in a country with materially similar data protection laws. Given that the U.S. does not have data protection laws in every state that provide a materially similar level of protection of personal data as certain other countries, Sandler uses (1) the Standard Contractual Clauses in transferring personal data of EU or UK citizens across international borders or other approved methods by the EU, and (2) other data transfer agreements that may be required by other countries in order to transfer personal data across country borders. You may request a summary of the appropriate safeguards or seek inquiries regarding such safeguards by contacting us at [email protected]. We will respond to your request or inquiry within a reasonable time period.
Additional terms applicable to California residents
The CCPA and Personal Information. If you are a California resident, you may have additional rights (or different rights than described above) under the California Consumer Privacy Act, as amended, and its implementing regulations (the "CCPA"). Although the terms "personal information" and "personal data" can often be used interchangeably, in this section when referring to "personal information", we are referring to how that term is defined under the CCPA.

When we receive your request, we may ask you to provide additional information to verify your identity, including personal information. We will only use personal information we collect during the verification process for the purpose of verifying your identity. If you maintain an account with us, we may use that account to respond to your request and/or verify your identity.

When We Will Respond. We will try to respond to your request for access or deletion within 45 days. If we require additional time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request. For data portability requests, we will select the format to provide such personal information. We may charge a fee to process or respond to your request if it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.
Non-Discrimination. California residents have the right to not receive discriminatory treatment for exercising any of their rights under the CCPA. If we choose to offer a financial incentives program in the future, additional terms will apply which may be an exception to this section.
Who May Exercise Your Rights? You may only make a request to exercise your rights on behalf of yourself. You also have a right to submit requests to exercise your rights under the CCPA through an authorized agent. An authorized agent must be registered with the Secretary of State in California to conduct business in California. If you choose to use an authorized agent, you must (a) provide signed permission to that authorized agent to submit requests on your behalf, (b) verify your identity directly with Sandler, and (c) directly confirm with Sandler that you granted permission to the authorized agent to submit the request on your behalf. For clarity, you are required to verify the identity of both yourself and the authorized agent. We may deny a request from an authorized agent if we do not have proof that they are authorized by you to act on your behalf. Furthermore, a parent or legal guardian may make a request on behalf of their child.
