Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights 

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a  verifiable consumer request to us by either:(855) 822-5868.  

Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act  on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information.  You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. 

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a  12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:  

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person  about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.  
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand,  evaluate, and respond to it.  

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.  

Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. However, we do consider requests made through your password protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account.  

We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the  requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.  

For instructions on exercising sale opt-out rights, see Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights.  

Response Timing and Format 

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its  receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.  

If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do  not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at  your option.  

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable  consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot  comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to  provide your personal information that is readily usable and should allow you to transmit the  information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.  

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.
