  • Right of Access and Data Portability: You may request that we disclose information to you about our collection of personal information over the past 12 months. Once a request is received and we get verifiable confirmation of that request, we will disclose:

Once we get a request and can obtain confirmation of that verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
    • We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
      • Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.

    • You, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you have authorized 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.
    • Verifiable consumer requests for data portability may only be made twice in a 12-month period. Requests must:
      • Provide enough detail so we can verify that you are the person about whom we collected personal information (or an authorized representative).
      • Include enough detail in your request so that we can understand and respond to it;
      • Note that we cannot respond if we do not have the above information.
      • Setting up an account to make a verifiable consumer request is not necessary and we only use information in a verifiable consumer request to address the specific request.

If we need additional time (up to a total of 90 days from when the request is received) we will communicate with you in writing regarding the reason for and the timing of the extension.
    • Disclosures that we provide are only for twelve (12) months preceding the request of the verifiable consumer request. Any response we send will also provide an explanation if why we cannot accommodate a request. If you send us a data portability request, we will provide your personal information in a format that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
    • There is no fee to process or respond to a verifiable consumer request unless we determine that it is excessive, repetitive or otherwise 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.
