- Facilitation in the delivery of our Services and to respond to your inquiries.
Depending on where you live and subject to certain exceptions, you may have some or all of the following rights:
- Right to Correct: You have the right to request the correction of any inaccurate personal information that we maintain about you, considering the nature of the personal information and the purposes of the processing of the personal information. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to correct the inaccurate personal information as you may direct.

Third parties cannot collect any other personal information from Company's websites unless you provide it to them directly.
If you choose to submit a request, you must provide us with enough information to identify you (e.g., your first and last name and email address) and enough specificity on the requested data. We will only use the information we receive to respond to your request. We will not be able to disclose information if we cannot verify that the person making the Consumer Request is the person about whom we collected information, or someone authorized to act on such person’s behalf. We will verify your request by comparing the information you provide with the information we have on you and, if your request is submitted by an authorized agent, we will require you to provide signed, written permission for such agent to act on your behalf.
