Your Requests Concerning Your Information

For personal data that we have about you, you have the following rights:
  • Deletion: You may ask us to erase or delete all or some of your personal data. Please note that doing so may limit your ability to use certain functionality of the website and/or aspects of our services.
  • Correction/Modification: You may ask us to change, update, or fix your data in certain cases, including if it’s inaccurate.
  • Object to, or Limit or Restrict, Use of Data: You can ask us to stop using all or some of your personal data or to limit our use of it.
  • Right to Access and/or Take Your Data: You can ask us for a copy of your personal data you have provided to us so long as we are able to verify your identity when you make such a request.
Certain state’s laws may provide you the right to make additional requests concerning your personal information.  If you are a resident of one of these states, and have provided us with personal information, state law may require that we provide you with certain information concerning your personally identifiable information. To make these or any other requests with respect to your personal information, you may contact us at the contact information above. When contacting us, please indicate your name, address, email address, and what personally identifiable information you do not want us to share with third parties. We ask that individuals making requests identify themselves and identify the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before we process any requests. We may decline to process requests if we cannot verify the requestor’s identity, if we believe the request will jeopardize the privacy of others, if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect, or for a similar legitimate purpose.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at our option.  The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. If we modify or delete some or all of your personal information, we will retain your personal data if reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations (including law enforcement requests), meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, maintain security, prevent fraud and abuse, enforce obligations or fulfill any other requests from you (for example, to opt-out of further messages or for a copy of your data).   We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under applicable law. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
