    The right to request the categories of Personal Information that we collected in the previous twelve (12) months, the categories of sources from which the Personal Information was collected, the specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you, and the business purposes for which such Personal Information is collected and shared. You may also have the right to request the categories of Personal Information which were disclosed for business purposes, and the categories of third parties in the twelve (12) months preceding your request for your Personal Information.

Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see below), we will correct (and direct any of our service providers that hold your data on our behalf to correct) your Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies. We may deny your correction request if (a) we believe the Personal Information we maintain about you is accurate; (b) correcting the information would be impossible or involve disproportionate effort; or (c) the request conflicts with our legal obligations.

    Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a request related to your Personal Information.

    You may only make a request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The 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
    • Give enough detail to allow us to understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

    To submit a request, please email us at [email protected] or contact us at (214) 440-4144.

    If we cannot initially verify your identity, we may request additional information. We will only use Personal Information provided in a request to verify the requestor’s identity.

Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.

    We endeavor to respond to requests within forty-five (45) days, unless the request is to opt-out of the sale of Personal Information, in which case we will respond within fifteen (15) days. If we need more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

    We will deliver our written response via e-mail.

    We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or 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.

    We may deny certain requests, or only fulfill some in part, as permitted or required by law. For example, if you request us to delete Personal Information, we may retain Personal Information that we need to retain for legal purposes.

    You will not be discriminated against in any way by virtue of your exercise of the rights listed in this Notice, which means we will not deny goods or services to you, provide different prices or rates for goods or services to you, or provide a different level or quality of goods or services to you.
