ITI may deny your request if retaining the information is necessary for ITI to:
- Complete the transaction for which ITI collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested or that is reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.

- Comply with a legal obligation.
- Otherwise use the information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided it.
Exercising Your Privacy Rights
You may exercise any of your privacy rights by either:
You may only make a verifiable consumer request to access personal information twice within a twelve (12) month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom ITI collected personal information or an authorized representative of such person and legally attest to this.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
Only you, or a person legally authorized to act on your behalf (an “Authorized Agent”), may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
ITI cannot respond to your request or provide you with the requested information if ITI cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm that the requested information relates to you. ITI will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
If you use an Authorized Agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete, ITI may require the Authorized Agent to submit proof that they have been authorized to act on your behalf. ITI may accept as proof either:
- Written permission from you; or
- A power of attorney pursuant to the California Probate Code §§ 4000 to 4465.
ITI may also require the Authorized Agent to verify their identity directly with us.
Confirmation and Response to Your Request
ITI will send you a confirmation of receipt within ten (10) days of receiving your request to know or request to delete. ITI endeavors to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If ITI requires more time—up to ninety (90) days—you will be informed of the reason and extension period in writing. ITI will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures ITI provides will only cover the twelve-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response ITI provides will also explain the reasons ITI cannot comply with a request, if applicable. ITI will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily usable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance. ITI will not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If ITI determines that the request warrants a fee, you will be informed of the basis for this decision and provided with a cost estimate before ITI completes your request.
