California Privacy Policy

Effective Date: January 1, 2020

This Thrivent Trust Company California Privacy Policy (“California Policy”) applies solely to online visitors and users and other individuals who reside in the State of California and provide “personal information” (as defined below) to Thrivent Trust Company (“consumers” or “you”). This California Policy does not address personal information collected for workforce-related inquiries or transactions.  For additional details about the use of personal information for workforce matters, please refer to the Workforce Privacy Policy.

If you are a prospective, existing or past Thrivent Trust Company customer residing in California and have been provided with a copy of our Privacy Notice at any time, any personal information collected as part of that client relationship will be used in accordance with our Privacy Notice and will not fall under this California Policy.

We adopt this California Policy to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) and any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this policy.

  • To fulfill or meet the reason you provided the information. For example, if you share your name and contact information to ask a question about our services, we will use that personal information to respond to your inquiry.

Thrivent Trust Company will not collect additional categories of personal information or use the personal information we collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing you notice.

Sharing Personal Information

Thrivent Trust Company may disclose the information we collect about you, as listed above, with other parties. Specifically, we share personal information with the following categories of other parties:

  • Service providers: We may share all categories of information we collect with service providers who perform services on our behalf for business purposes, including marketing. When we disclose personal information to service providers, we enter a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract.
  • Government agencies and regulators:  We may share all categories of information we collect with government agencies and regulators for business purposes to demonstrate our compliance with, or as required by, various laws and regulations.
  • Third parties: With your consent, we may share internet or other similar network activity we collect with third parties to perform targeted marketing. We may also share information with third parties if required by law to do so.

Thrivent Trust Company does not sell your personal information.

Your Rights and Choices

If you are a California consumer, you have specific rights under California law regarding your personal information (unless you are a prospective, current or former customer of Thrivent Trust Company, in which case your rights are described in our Privacy Notice). This section describes the rights applicable to California consumers and explains how to exercise them.

Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights

You have the right to request that Thrivent Trust Company disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights ), we will disclose to you:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting that personal information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
  • If we disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that Thrivent Trust Company delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

  1. Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
  2. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
  3. Debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality of our services.
  4. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  5. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
  6. Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information's deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research's achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
  7. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  8. Comply with a legal obligation.
  9. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

  • Calling us at 877-225-8345 and pressing Option 4; or
  • Submitting this online form.

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

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.  Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Specifically, if you exercise any of your CCPA rights, we will not:

  • Deny you services.
  • Charge you different prices or rates for services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
  • Provide you a different level or quality of services.
  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for services or a different level or quality of services.

Changes to This California Policy

Thrivent Trust Company reserves the right to amend this California Policy at our discretion and at any time. When we make changes to this California Policy, we will post the updated California Policy on our website and update the policy’s effective date.
