Verifiable Consumer Requests
You can exercise your legal rights by submitting a Verifiable Consumer Request to us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a Verifiable Consumer Request related to your PII. Making a Verifiable Consumer Request does not require you to create an account with us. You may only make a Verifiable Consumer Request for access to PII twice in a 12-month period.
The Verifiable Consumer Request must:
Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative; and
Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with PII if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the PII relates to you. We will only use PII provided in a Verifiable Consumer Request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
Response Timing and Format

If we require more time (up to ninety (90) days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the Verifiable Consumer Request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to Verifiable Consumer Requests, unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly 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.
Generally, we do not process PII based on consent. However, in the event we do, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of the processing based on said consent before its withdrawal. If you would like to withdraw your consent, please contact us at the Contact Information provided below.
