You may only submit a request to know twice within a 12-month period. The request to know or delete must:

Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time.
To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us by completing an opt-out request using our Your Privacy Rights web form.
