In accordance with the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), this Corporate CCPA Privacy Notice (“Notice”) discloses the personal information we collect from you and the purposes for doing so. As used in this Notice, “Caris,” “we,” “us” and “our” refer to Caris Life Sciences, Inc. and our subsidiaries, joint ventures, and other companies under a common control (“Affiliates”), and “personal information” means all personal information as defined in the CCPA, which includes information relating to a particular household as well as a natural person. This Notice applies to most of the personal information collected by Caris from California residents in the course of conducting our general business operations and is supplemental to our website privacy policies at www.carislifesciences.com, www.carismolecularintelligence.com, and www.mycancer.com (collectively, the “Websites”). There are three main exceptions:
|Our business purposes for processing your personal information|
We may use the personal information you provide us to:
|Categories of personal information we may process|
We may process the following categories of personal information, as appropriate for the relevant processing activity:
Sources of personal information
You may provide personal information to us directly or via our service providers.
|The recipients or categories of recipients of the personal information|
|The period for which the personal information will be stored, or the criteria for determining the retention period|
How long we retain personal information varies according to the type of information in question and the purpose for which it is used. Certain laws may require us to store personal information for specified periods. We delete personal information within a reasonable period after we no longer need to use it for the purpose for which it was collected or for any subsequent purpose that is compatible with the original purpose. This does not affect your right to request that we delete your personal information before the end of its retention period. We may archive personal information (which means storing it in inactive files) for a certain period prior to its final deletion, as part of our ordinary business continuity procedures.
|Children (under 18)|
We do not knowingly collect information about children (anyone under 18), except in connection with pediatric medical services, which, as explained above, are not subject to this Notice. If any parent or guardian of a child believes that we have personal information about that child that is not related to the child’s participation in one of our clinical studies, please contact us through one of the means below.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
