Exceptions may include to (i) complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or benefit that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you; (ii) help to ensure security and integrity to the extent the use of the consumer’s personal information is reasonably necessary and proportionate for those purposes; (iii) debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality; (iv) exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law; (v) enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us; (vi) make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it; and (vii) comply with our legal obligations.
- You have the right to know what information is shared with third parties, and to whom and to opt out of sharing for cross-context behavioral advertising. We do not sell or share your personal information.

Additional reasonable measures may also be required to verify the identity of the person making the request depending on the circumstances.

We will maintain a record of your request to delete. To the extent that you wish to use an authorized agent to make requests concerning the rights set forth above, you will need to provide us either with a power of attorney or, alternatively, with signed authorization to communicate with your authorized agent, and directly confirm that you provided the authorized agent with permission to submit the request.
