When we have no legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

Only you or an authorized agent may make a verifiable consumer request related to your Personal Information. An authorized agent must have your written permission to submit the request on your behalf and must directly verify his or her own identity with us.

 The following information must be provided by you or your authorized agent in order for us to process your request: 

  1. Your first and last name
  2. Your mailing address
  3. Your email address

This information may be submitted via the form [Click Here] or by telephone.

 The verifiable consumer request must: 

  • Provide sufficient information in order for us to reasonably verify the consumer about whom we collected Personal Information.
  • Describe the request with sufficient detail such that we can properly understand and respond to it.

If we cannot verify your identity or your authorized agent’s authority to make a request, or confirm that the Personal Information belongs to you, we will not be able to respond to your request.

(vi)     How we respond to verifiable consumer requests

When we receive a verifiable consumer request, we will confirm receipt within 10 business days and provide information about how we will process the request. Typically, we will respond to your request within 45 days of receipt. However, if additional time to evaluate and fulfill your request is reasonably necessary, we will notify you of the extension (up to an additional 90 days taking into account the complexity and number of requests) within the initial 45-day period. If we provide a disclosure of your Personal Information, it will cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your verifiable consumer request and shall be made in writing and delivered through your user account, if you maintain an account with our business, or by mail or electronically at the your option if you do not. The disclosure will be provided in a readily useable format that will allow you to transmit this information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

 We will not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive. If you submit unfounded requests, or an excessive number of requests, we may either charge a reasonable fee, taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or communication or taking the action requested, or refuse to act on the request and notify you of the reason for refusal. We are not required to provide you with your Personal Information more than twice in a 12-month period.

Any such financial incentive program requires your opt-in consent; such consent may be revoked at any time.

(viii)     Do-Not-Track Policy
