If you are making a request for access, we may not be able to provide specific pieces of Personal Information if the disclosure creates a substantial, articulable, and unreasonable risk to the security of your Personal Information, your account with us, or our systems or networks.

If you are making a request for erasure, we will ask that you confirm that you would like us to delete your Personal Information again before your request is submitted. In certain circumstances, we may not erase all Personal Information, as permitted by the CCPA.

You may designate an authorized agent to submit a request on your behalf by providing that agent with your written permission. If an agent makes a request on your behalf, we may still ask that you verify your identity directly with us before we can honor the request.

Agents who make requests on behalf of individuals will be required to verify the request by submitting written authorization from the individual. We will not honor any requests from agents until authorization is verified.
