California Consumer Privacy Act

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) (Cal. Civ. Code §1798.100 et seq.) grants certain privacy rights to consumer who reside in California. These rights, along with how California consumer residents may contact us to exercise their rights, are outlined in this disclosure. For purposes of this disclosure, “Park” consists of Park National Bank, its parent company Park National Corporation, and other companies held by Park National Corporation, including Scope Leasing, LLC (dba Scope Aircraft Finance) and SE Property Holdings.

Because Park is a financial institution subject to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (“GLBA”) (15 U.S. Code §6801), part of the information Park collects, uses, and shares from California consumers is exempted from coverage under the CCPA. For example, the CCPA does not apply to personal information collected or disclosed in connection with financial products or services that are used primarily for personal, family, or household purposes. For more information about Park’s general privacy policies, which apply to all consumers, please read our privacy policy or ask a Park representative for a current copy of our Privacy Notice.
