Notice to California Residents – Your California Privacy Rights

This section supplements the description of our information collection and sharing practices elsewhere in this Privacy Policy to provide disclosures to California residents whose personal information Ocugen processes pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). Please note that these disclosures do not apply to information that is not processed under the CCPA.

During the preceding 12 months, Ocugen has collected the categories of personal information described above in this Privacy Policy from you. For example, this may include identifiers (e.g., email addresses, IP addresses, and mobile device identifiers), health information, demographic information, location data, and internet or other electronic network activity information. This may also include inferences we draw from the other information we collect. See the “Data Collection and Use” and other relevant sections of this Privacy Policy for more details.

DAs described in the relevant sections of this Privacy Policy, we disclose and make available these categories of personal information to third parties for business purposes in various ways, including with service providers, affiliates, in the context of a merger or acquisition, as required by law, for the protection of rights, and as directed by you. We do not treat this as a sale of personal information for purposes of state law, although you do have the choices that we describe to you in this Privacy Policy.

Under the CCPA, California residents have certain rights to transparency and to access and delete personal information. You or your authorized agent may exercise these rights by contacting us as set forth under “Contact information” above.

We will not charge you different prices or provide different quality of services unless those differences are related to your information or otherwise permitted by law. Once we receive you request, we may verify it by requesting information sufficient to confirm your identity, including by asking you for additional information. If you would like to use an agent registered with the California Secretary of State to exercise your rights, we may request evidence that you have provided such agent with power of attorney or that the agent otherwise has valid written authority to submit requests to exercise rights on your behalf.
