Supplemental Privacy Notice for US Residents

Effective as of December 31, 2023

If you are a resident of California, this notice applies to you and supplements the Progress Privacy Policy. This notice is intended to provide certain information to you as required by the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)/California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA).

If you are resident of Virginia, Connecticut, Colorado, Utah or another US state which have comprehensive privacy laws, this notice and the Progress Privacy Policy applies to you only if you act in an individual or household consumer context. This notice does not apply for natural persons acting in a commercial or employment context.

This notice applies to information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with you or your household such as your real name, alias, postal address, unique personal identifier, online identifier Internet Protocol address, email address, account name, other similar identifiers (“Personal Information”) or Social Security number (SSN), driver’s license, state identification card, or passport number; account log-in, financial account, debit card, or credit card number in combination with any required security or access code, password, or credentials allowing access to an account (“Sensitive Personal Information”). Personal information does not include publicly available information, deidentified or aggregated consumer information and certain other information that is regulated by other applicable laws.

In this notice we talk about “selling” your personal information. Under the law, “selling” is broadly defined as “selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, a consumer’s personal information by the business to another business or a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration.” This means that when Progress shares your information with our Partners so that they can contact you about our products and related services they may offer you, we are “selling” or sharing your information as determined by the law. Progress does not sell customer lists or any of your personal information to third parties other than as expressly stated in this notice.

We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under the CCPA/CPRA, such as denying you products and services, charging you different rates or prices including use of discounts or penalties, or suggesting or providing a different level of service or quality of products to you. However, we may charge a different price or provide a different level or quality of products and services only if the price or difference is directly related to the value provided to you by your personal information.

Opt Out Preference signal

The residents of some US states such as California may choose to activate Opt-Out Preference Signal on their browsers which is known also as Global Privacy Control (GPC). To download and use a browser supporting the GPC browser signal, click here: If you choose to use the Opt out preference signal, you will need to turn it on for each supported browser or browser extension you use. If we detect such signal, e.g. from California, we`ll stop sharing or selling data for cross-context behavioral advertising.

Please note that it is not always possible to make connection between your browser and a profile associated with this browser or your account (if applicable) when you send the opt-out of “sale” / “sharing” of your personal information request or GPC signal. This means that if you have not yet opted out of “sale” / “sharing” your personal information, we recommend you submit the Do Not Sell or Share Personal Information form.

Verifying Your Identity:

Depending on the nature of your request, we may have to verify your identity when you contact us. We do this by:

  • Requiring you to provide sufficient information in your request that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information, or an authorized representative of that person.
  • Sending an email to the primary email address you submit in your request and, if applicable, to any other email address we have on record for you requiring you to verify that you made the request.

You may also use an authorized agent to exercise your rights on your behalf. If you wish to use an authorized agent, we require that your authorized agent provides written proof to us that he or she is authorized to act on your behalf, and we may also require your authorized agent to verify his or her own identity. 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 do not verify your identity when you make a request to opt-out of sale/sharing or make a request to limit (if the latter is applicable). However, we may ask for the information necessary to complete the request.

We will only use personal information provided in your request to verify your identity or authority to make the request. If, however, we cannot verify your identity of from the information already maintained by us, we may request additional information from you or your authorized representative, which will only be used for the purposes of verifying your identity and authority to exercise your rights, security, or fraud-prevention.

We endeavor to respond to your request as soon as we can. If we are not able to respond to your request within 45 days, we will let you know that we may require additional time (up to 90 total days) and give you the reason for the extension of time.
