Verifying Your Requests
We only respond to your requests to know, access the specific pieces of personal information we have about you, delete and correct inaccurate personal information when we can verify that you are a California resident exercising your rights regarding your personal information.

We may need to ask you for personal information to verify your request so we can match it to the personal information we already have about you. We may also need to obtain additional information about you that we do not already have. If you provide us with new personal information that we do not already have about you, we will use it solely for the purpose of verifying your request. We will let you know via email if we need more information from you to verify your request. Please reply to our requests promptly.

We will communicate with you about your requests via email. We will use the email address you provided when submitting your request.

If we cannot verify your identity, we will let you know.

Responding To Your Requests
We aim to promptly verify and respond to your requests within 45 days of receipt but may require a total of up to 90 days to respond to your requests. If we require additional time beyond the initial 45 days after we receive your request, we will let you know within the first 45 days.

We do not ordinarily charge a fee for our response to your requests. However, we may do so to the extent your request(s) are excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that charging a fee is warranted, we will let you know and will provide you with an estimate of the associated costs of responding to your request(s).

If we determine that we cannot or will not take the action that you requested, we will let you know. We will inform you of our reasons for not taking action and any rights you may have to appeal the decision.

We are only required to respond to certain requests twice in any twelve-month period. We are not required to provide you access to specific pieces of Personal Information more than twice in any twelve-month period.
