California residents have the right to exercise CPRA privacy rights via an authorized agent who meets the agency requirements of the CPRA. Authorized agent requests must include a copy of the agency agreement between the authorized agent and the consumer. We will also ask the consumer to independently confirm the agency relationship.

We cannot respond to your request if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Personal Information relates to you.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period immediately preceding our receipt of your verifiable request.
