Authentication Process

To protect consumers’ personal information and to comply with US state data privacy laws, we will use an authentication process to confirm your identity before we act on your request. You or your authorized agent may make an authenticated consumer request related to your personal information. If you use an authorized agent to submit a request on your behalf, we may require that you (1) provide the authorized agent written permission to do so and (2) provide us a copy of the authorization or a copy of a power of attorney. If we suspect fraudulent or malicious activity on or from the password-protected account, we may decline a request or request that you provide further authenticating information.

Data Protection Principles

We will comply with data protection law, which says that the personal information we hold about you must be:

  • Used lawfully, fairly and in a transparent way;

  • Collected only for valid purposes that we have clearly explained to you and not used in any way that is incompatible with those purposes;

  • Relevant to the purposes we have told you about and limited only to those purposes;

  • Accurate and kept up to date;

  • Kept only as long as necessary for the purposes we have told you about; and

  • Kept securely.
