You may make a verifiable consumer request no more than two times within a 12-month period. The verifiable request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.

- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it; and
- Include a statement that you “declare under penalty of perjury that you are the person about whom the Right to Know/Delete request has been made.”

For an authorized agent to be verified, you must provide the authorized agent with signed, written permission to make such requests or a power of attorney. We may also follow up with you to verify your identity according to the above method before processing the authorized agent’s request.

In addition, under this law you are entitled to be advised how we handle “Do Not Track” browser signals. RIPNDIP does not personally track its users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party websites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such websites, most web browsers (like Safari) allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.
