EXERCISING YOUR RIGHTS 

 

To exercise your rights, please contact us using the methods provided in the CONTACT INFORMATION section at the end of this Privacy Policy to obtain the verification form and submit your request.  Because we take the protection of your PI seriously, in order to process this request, your identity must be verified.  We reserve the right to verify your identity in connection with any requests regarding PI to help ensure that we provide the information we maintain to the individuals to whom it pertains, and allow only those individuals or their authorized representatives to exercise rights with respect to that information.  If you are an authorized agent making a request on behalf of a consumer, we may require and request additional information to verify that you are authorized to make that request. 

For example, for certain requests, we will ask you to complete an Affidavit of Identity to verify your identity and ask the affidavit to be notarized.
