To exercise the consumer rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

You have the right to request, twice in a 12-month period, that we disclose to you the Personal Information we have collected, used, and disclosed about you during the past 12 months.

Your verifiable consumer request must:

  • describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We may request that you provide us with at least two or more pieces of Personal Information to match against Personal Information about you that we may or may not maintain and which we have determined to be reliable for the purpose of verification. 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.
