When requested by the data subject, the information may be provided orally, provided that the identity of the data subject is clear or can be proven.

Data access.

You have the right to know if we collect your personal data, how we obtain any data, where we store it, how we handle it, and how we may use it. You also have the right to view, amend, restrict, or delete any of your personal information that we may collect or hold.


To request access to your data, please email us. We will provide the information to you. If the request is unfounded, excessive, or you cannot first prove your identity, we reserve the right to refuse.
