Changes to your personal data
It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
Your rights in connection with personal data
Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:
Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us, in certain situations, to delete or remove personal data unless our processing is specifically permitted under the CCPA.
Right of disclosure for sale of data or use for business purpose. This enables you to ask us, in certain circumstances, to provide you with the categories personal data and third parties we disclose for sale or business purposes. As TCS does not sell your personal data under any circumstances, this right may only apply where TCS discloses your personal data for a business purpose.
Data portability: This enables you to ask us, in certain circumstances, to provide you with the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or to transmit the personal data that you have provided to us to another party.
Right to opt-out: This enables you to opt-out of the sale of your personal data by a business to other third parties. As TCS does not sell your personal data under any circumstances, this right does not apply to your personal data with TCS.
Right to non-discrimination: This specifies that TCS will not discriminate against you in any way or under any circumstance for exercising your rights to your data under the CCPA.
Right to withdraw consent: In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal data for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please contact our Privacy Officer (see contacts below). Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legal basis for doing so.
If you are a US resident and want to exercise one of the above rights in connection to your personal data, please contact our Privacy Officer @ US.Privacy@tcs.com.
What we may need from you
If you exercise one of the above rights, we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and that you are entitled to make such a request. This is to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
