Your verifiable consumer request must include sufficient information for Contech® to verify that you are the person whose personal information was collected. We will only use the personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity and authority to make the request.

Verification Procedures
We are required by the California Privacy Laws to verify the identity of individuals who submit a request to know, request to delete, or request to correct. In compliance with the California Privacy Laws, we will take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to such Personal Information or acting on your request to exercise your rights.  If we cannot verify your identity based on the information already maintained, we may request limited additional information from you, solely for the purpose of verifying your identity and for security or fraud-prevention purposes. Except as required by law, we will delete any new personal information collected for the purposes of verification as soon as practical after processing the request.

Authorized Agents

If you use an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete, we may require you to: (1) provide the authorized agent with written permission to do so; and (2) verify your identity directly with us. However, we will not require these actions if you have provided the authorized agent with power of attorney pursuant to the California Probate Code.
