6. Privacy Statement for California Residents
This Privacy Statement/Notice at Collection for California Residents supplements the information contained in the Yamaha Privacy Statement and applies solely to consumers who reside in the State of California (“consumers” or “you”). We adopt this notice to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (“CCPA”) and other California privacy laws. Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this section.
Categories of Personal Information We Collect. We collect information that identifies, relates to, describes, references, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household (“personal information”).
In particular, we have collected the following categories of personal information from consumers within the last twelve (12) months:
* “Service providers and contractors” include but not limited to: analytics companies, third-party advertisers, payment processors, and cloud service providers.
Sources of Personal Information. We collect personal information from various sources:
Personal Information does not include:
Purposes of Processing Personal Information. We may use or disclose the personal information we collect for one or more of the following business purposes:
We will not collect additional categories of personal information or use the personal information we collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without obtaining your consent.
Disclosure and Sale or Sharing of Personal Information. In the preceding twelve (12) months, we have disclosed the categories of personal information to the categories of the third parties as listed in the chart above for our business purposes. When we disclose (including sell or share if applicable) personal information for our business purposes, we enter a contract that describes, among other statutory required conditions, the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract.
In the preceding twelve (12) months, we did not disclose your personal information for monetary consideration or for cross-context behavioral advertisement to third parties unless we specifically obtained your consent. If our disclosure is construed as “sale” or “share” under the CCPA, we might have sold or shared the categories of personal information to the categories of the third parties as listed in the chart above for our business purposes.
Sensitive Personal Information. Although personal information we collect might include “sensitive personal information” (e.g. Social Security number, precise geolocation, citizenship), we process such sensitive personal information solely for the purposes permitted by the CCPA and other relevant laws and regulations unless we specifically obtain your consent.
Human Resource (HR) Data Processing. Taking the unique employer-employee relationship into consideration, we provide a separate privacy notice/notice at collection that notifies our HR data processing for (i) the existing Yamaha employees, and (ii) the job candidates or applicants, respectively. This Statement still applies to the matters to which said HR data specific privacy statement does not cover.
Business Related (B2B) Data Processing. This Statement applies to B2B data processing other than those items specified as follows:
Consumer Rights under the CCPA. The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months (or the periods specified by the applicable laws). Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you:
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 any of the following exception applies:
You have the right to request that we correct inaccurate personal information about you. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to correct as directed, unless we determine that the contested information is more likely than not accurate based on the totality of the circumstances.
You have the right to request that we do not “sell” or “share” (disclosure for cross-context behavioral advertisement) any of your personal information that we collected and retained, or that we limit the use or disclosure of your sensitive personal information to those uses permitted by the CCPA. Once we confirm your identity, we will cease to sell and/or share your personal information with third parties, or cease to use or disclose your sensitive personal information for purposes other than those permitted by the CCPA.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, Deletion, Correction, and Opt-Out Rights
To exercise the right to access, data portability, deletion, correction, and request not to “sell” or “share” personal information, request to “limit use of sensitive personal information” described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
Only you or a person that you authorize 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.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access, correction, opt-out, deletion, or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
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.

We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
Do Not Track “DNT” Signals. We have not implemented the necessary program changes to honor “Do Not Track” or “DNT” browser signals.
CCPA Children Privacy Rights. We do not disclose California Personally Identifiable Information of individuals we know to be under the age of 16 to business or third parties for monetary or other valuable consideration as a “sale” or “share” under the CCPA without affirmative authorization.

If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt, unless otherwise required by the applicable laws. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
Non-Discrimination. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
Retention Period. We intend to retain the personal information we collect for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, unless the different retention period is specified by the relevant laws.
