How to Exercise your Deletion Rights, Right to Know or Right to Access Personal Information
You must make a verified request, i.e., a request indicating what type of right you wish to exercise that allows us to make sure that you are the person authorized to make such a request or a duly authorized agent of such a person. Typically, we need to be able to verify the identity of the person making any such request.
