If you ask Ironwood to delete your Personal Information, we will either respond that we will do so, or we will let you know that we will not due to a specified reason. For example, there may be a law that we have to follow that won’t permit us to delete your Personal Information.
A verifiable consumer request is one made by any individual who is:
If we request, you must provide us with sufficient information to verify your identity and/or authority to act on behalf of the consumer when submitting a Request to Know or Delete.
In general, we may ask you to provide identifying information that we already maintain about you or we may use a third-party verification service. In either event, we will try to avoid asking you for sensitive PI to verify your identity. We may not be able to respond to your request or provide you with PI if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the PI relates to you. However, making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. Additionally, you will need to describe your request with sufficient detail to allow us to review, understand, assess, and respond. PI collected from an individual to determine whether a request is a verifiable consumer request may not be used or disclosed for any other purpose except as required by law.
If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the receipt of your verifiable consumer request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.

We will ask you for Personal Information when you interact with us, such as registering on our websites, using any interactive features or applications, signing up to receive a newsletter or a rebate, participating in a savings program, making a direct purchase, or contacting us to ask questions. We may collect additional information about you from things like public records, or from social media sites such as Facebook. In addition, we may get your personal information from companies that provide us with services or who help us with the services we provide to you.

If you would like, you can permit someone to submit a request to know your Personal Information that Ironwood has collected or a request to delete your Personal Information that Ironwood has collected.

If that person doesn’t provide us with written proof, we will deny their request so that we can protect your Personal Information.
