To make such a request, please e-mail us at the address listed in the Contact Information section below.

How to Submit a Consumer Request

To exercise your rights, please submit a Consumer Request to the contact information below. The Consumer Request must describe the request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate and respond to it. Please specify if your Consumer Request pertains to all specific pieces of your Personal Information, or only with respect to the categories of Personal Information. You may only make a Consumer Request for access or data portability twice within a twelve (12) month period.

How We Will Verify Consumer Requests

Only you, or a person or entity that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a Consumer Request related to your Personal Information. To designate an authorized agent, we will ask you to provide us with legal documentation (such as power of attorney documentation) or written permission and the agent will need to verify their own identity with us.

We reserve the right to require you to provide additional information to enable us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom the Personal Information pertains in order to release the requested information to you (or your authorized representative). If you have an account with us, you will be asked to use the standard authentication procedures to access your account. If you do not have an account with us, you will be asked to verify certain pieces of your Personal Information. If we are unable to verify your identity, we may be unable to provide you with information responsive to the request.

How We Will Respond to Consumer Requests

We endeavor to respond to verifiable Consumer Requests within forty-five (45) days after receipt. If we require more time (up to 45 days) we will inform you of the reason and extension in writing. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response(s) to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response(s) by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding receipt of the Consumer Request. If we deny (or cannot comply with) the Consumer Request, we will explain why. 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.  We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your Consumer Request unless such request is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
