California’s “Shine the Light” Law. California law permits customers in California to request certain details about how their personal information is shared with third parties and, in some cases, affiliates if that personal information is shared for those third parties’ and affiliates’ own direct marketing purposes. We do not share personal information with third parties or affiliates for those third parties’ or affiliates’ own direct marketing purposes. Californians may request information about our compliance with this law by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or mailing to Cornerstone Building Brands, Inc., Attention: Data Privacy, 10943 North Sam Houston Pkwy W, Houston, Texas, 77064.

As of that date, the California Attorney General had not completed the rulemaking process to establish the regulations for covered businesses to implement the law. Accordingly, we may update information in this section regarding our data practices and your rights under the CCPA, modify our methods for responding to your requests, and/or supplement our responses to your requests as we continue to develop our compliance program to reflect the development of the law and our understanding of how it relates to our data practices.
If you are a California consumer and would like to make a request pursuant to your “right to know about personal information collected, disclosed or sold” (including your right to obtain copies of specific pieces of PI), your “right to request deletion of personal information,” or your “right to opt-out of the sale of personal information,” you may contact us at email@example.com or complete and submit the form, here. We will respond to your request as soon as we have guidance on how to properly verify your identity and the appropriate response parameters.
Please note that CCPA rights do not apply to PI collected from (1) job applicants, current and former employees, or independent contractors; or (2) representatives of another business in connection with business communications or transactions.
Examples of the types of PI we may collect from California consumers, and of the purposes for such collection, are outlined in the chart below.
We will revise this section as the law becomes clearer and we are able to provide you with more specific information about your CCPA rights and how to exercise them.
Please note that “Shine the Light” rights and CCPA rights are established under different legal regimes and must be exercised separately.
