eFC places data privacy at the heart of what we do. We fully welcome the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (the “CCPA”) and its aims to provide greater control to individuals over their personal information, along with enhancing transparency as to how this information is used.
At eFC we have carried out an extensive review of our products, tools, email capture, and data storage practices, along with a policy review to ensure our services are fully aligned with the CCPA. Our dedicated project team is responsible for ensuring that we continue to protect the personal information of clients and professionals who use our services by identifying the changes required for our business.
We invite you to review the information below and return to this page for ongoing updates on our CCPA compliance.

On June 28, 2018, Governor Brown signed Assembly Bill 375, now known as the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, which grants consumers new rights with respect to the collection of their personal information. The Bill, which comes into effect on January 1, 2020, is designed to enhance privacy rights and consumer protection for residents of California.
In relation to eFC, persons affected by the CCPA are those California citizens whose personal information is being collected and utilized in our business. Parties include job-seekers who registered themselves on our service, active and inactive employers who use or have used eFC services, and prospective employers who have not previously used our services but may do so in the future.
eFC has chosen to embrace the tenets of CCPA country-wide and apply them to users across the United States.
“Personal information” is defined as anything that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could be reasonably linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. Such data may include personal identifiers like a name, location, links to online presence, contact information such as phone numbers or email addresses, or photos.
Organizations now need inform consumers as to the categories of personal information to be collected and the purposes for which the categories of personal information shall be used, at or before the point of collection. Likewise, the CCPA requires all organizations collecting personal information include in their online privacy pages a description of a consumer’s rights and two or more designated methods for users to submit access requests, including a toll-free telephone number and a website address.
The CCPA ensures the following rights for Californians:

In line with the transparency principles of CCPA, we are ensuring that:
We will only hold personal information that is necessary to provide the services found on eFC. Any personal information that is not required will either be anonymised to make it non-personal or deleted.
Once any personal information reaches the appropriate retention period it will either be deleted or made non-personal via anonymization. For job-seeking professionals who registered themselves on eFC, personal information is kept for five years and then deleted if they haven’t actively used the site in that time period. For those that are actively using the site, we’ll keep their data so long as there is active use. For employers and recruiters using eFC, personal information is kept for five years, and efforts are made to delete as much information as possible while still maintaining sufficient data for audit, legal, and tax requirements.
Beyond these suppliers and third-parties, we will only share personal information when we have the necessary right to do so. For instance,
