If you want an authorized person to submit a CCPA request on your behalf, the authorized agent must provide proof of your written permission to submit the request(s) on your behalf and other information relating to their authorized person’s status.

- Access / Delete: You can request access to personal information we’ve collected about you.
Please provide as much information as you can, which is important for our verification process. It helps us determine (1) if we have personal information about you in our system, (2) if you’re a California resident, and (3) if we can verify your identity. Please be aware that we may not be able to verify your identity if you do not provide enough information. On the other hand, it is not guaranteed we will be able to verify your identity to the degree of certainty required by the CCPA.
We will use the information you provide only for our verification efforts, for purposes of security and fraud prevention, and for the CCPA’s record-keeping requirements.
If we’re able to verify your identity to the degree of certainty required by the CCPA, we will disclose to you either a category-level report on the personal information we have collected about you or the specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you, depending on the degree of certainty established by the verification results.
There may be other circumstances where we are not able to provide you with some information, as permitted by the CCPA. For example, if we are not able to verify that information relates to you instead of someone else, if providing information to you could adversely affect the rights of someone else, or if information consists of trade secrets, we may not provide the affected information.
You have a right to not be discriminated against for exercising rights set out in the CCPA.
