Pursuant to the Privacy Shield Frameworks, EU and Swiss individuals have the right to obtain our confirmation of whether we maintain personal information relating to you in the United States, and the right to access that data. The type of information collected and how it is used is described here under "Information Gathering and Usage." Upon request, we will provide you with access to the personal information that we hold about you. You may also correct, amend, or delete the personal information we hold about you. If requested to alter, remove, or limit the use or disclosure of data, we will respond within forty-five (45) days of receipt.
