You may submit a request under the CCPA through the following methods:
- You may call us toll-free at 1-877-695-5521.
- You may submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org
To submit a request, we are required to verify your identity. Please be prepared to provide us with your first and last name, primary telephone number, e-mail address, and current address. We will match the personal information that you provide to us with personal information that we already maintain about you in order to verify your identity. We may also need to contact you to confirm your request.
You may also designate an authorized agent to make such requests on your behalf. You have two ways to accomplish that. First, you may provide your authorized agent with written and signed permission to make such requests. Second, you may provide your authorized agent with power of attorney pursuant to California Probate Code Sections 4000 to 4465. Regardless of which option you choose, (1) you must (a) verify your identity directly with us and (b) confirm directly with us that you have given permission to the authorized agent to make such requests and (2) your authorized agent must submit proof that you have authorized him/her/them to make such requests on your behalf. If the authorized agent is unable or unwilling to submit such proof, we may deny such requests.
We may not be able to honor each request that we receive, but if we are unable to do so, we will respond to let you know our reasons. We will not discriminate against you if you choose to exercise any of your rights as described in this section.
If you do not fit into any of the descriptions above, but you are a California resident and think we may have personal information about you, you may have rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act. To see and exercise those rights, go to our California Consumer Privacy Act Notice.
