How do we verify your request to know or delete information?    

Before we can grant your request to know or delete California Personal Information, we will verify your identity in one or more of the following ways.

  • A Keesal, Young & Logan shareholder partner may call you at a telephone number that is known to us, to confirm that you have submitted a request.
  • If you submit a request to know categories of information that we have collected about you, we will verify your identity to a reasonable degree of certainty.  This means that we will match at least two pieces of personal information provided by you with personal information maintained by us, which we have determined are reliable for the purpose of verifying your identity.  In some instances there is no reasonable method by which we can verify the identity of the consumer to the degree required.  This is the case, for example, when you visit our website.  In that circumstance, we collect your IP address and other information as described above (“When You Visit Our Website”), but we do not associate this information with any named actual person or account.    
  • If you submit a request to know specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you, we will verify your identity to a reasonably high degree of certainty.  This means that we will match at least three pieces of personal information provided by you with personal information maintained by us, together with a signed declaration under penalty of perjury from you stating that you are the individual whose personal information is the subject of the request.
  • If you submit a request to delete information we have collected from you, the manner in which we will verify your identity will depend on the sensitivity of the personal information and the risk of harm to the individual by its unauthorized deletion.  If the personal information is not sensitive, we will match at least two pieces of personal information provided by you with personal information maintained by us, which we have determined are reliable.  If the personal information is sensitive, we will match at least three pieces of personal information provided by you with personal information maintained by us, together with a signed declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request.

Additional information about requests to know and requests to delete:

  • We are not obligated to respond to a request to know submitted by or on behalf of the same consumer more than twice in a 12-month period.

  • If we cannot verify that the person submitting or authorizing a request to delete information is the person from whom we have collected information, we will deny the request to delete.

Can your authorized agent submit a request to know or delete on your behalf? 

Yes.  If you use an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete personal information, we will require that you (1) provide your authorized agent with written permission to submit a request to know or delete information on your behalf, and (2) verify your identity with us, using the methods described above.  We may deny a request from an agent who fails to submit proof that they have been authorized by you to act on your behalf.
