How do you verify my identity?
We may verify your identity in a few different ways. We may work with a third-party identification service to help us verify your identity and prevent fraudulent requests.

If you have an online account, we may ask you to log into your account and complete a one-time passcode validation.
In some instances, we may ask you to provide other documentation to verify your identity. If this happens, we will reach out to you directly with this request.
What if you can’t verify my identity?
If we can’t verify your identity, we will not be able to process your request to know what personal information we have about you or to delete the personal information we have about you.

If you are submitting a request on behalf of another person, we require a valid power of attorney and a signed attestation form.

Our attestation form can be downloaded from the request form.
