Once we receive and confirm your verifiable request (see Exercising Your Rights below), we will provide the information according to the stipulated CCPA regulations.

Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Your Rights below), we will delete, and direct our third party service providers to delete, your Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies.
