You can ask for the deletion of your personal information. If you ask me to delete your personal information, I will respect your request and delete your personal information, subject to certain exceptions provided by law, such as (but not limited to) the exercise by another consumer of his or her right to free speech, my compliance requirements resulting from a legal obligation or any processing that may be required to protect against illegal activities.

I will not discriminate against you if you exercise your privacy rights.
Upon receiving your request, I will need to verify your identity to determine you are the same person about whom I have the information in my system.

I may also use other verification methods as the circumstances dictate.
I will only use personal information provided in your request to verify your identity or authority to make the request. To the extent possible, I will avoid requesting additional information from you for the purposes of verification. If, however, I cannot verify your identity from the information already maintained by me, I may request that you provide additional information for the purposes of verifying your identity, and for security or fraud-prevention purposes. I will delete such additionally provided information as soon as I finish verifying you.
