Identity Verification Process
We will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before responding to a request, which may include the following:
If you are exercising your Right to Delete or a similar right that does not require the disclosure of specific pieces of information about you:
If you are writing to us from the email address that Rescue has on file for you, then to complete the verification process, we will ask you to confirm the action you wish us to take before we proceed (such as confirming you would like us to delete your information).
If you are not writing to us from the email address associated that Rescue has on file for you, then to complete the verification process, we will ask you to provide three specific pieces of data that we have on file for you, such as email address you used, the first four digits of your mailing address, and your last three digits of your zip code.
If you are exercising your Right to Know or a similar right that does require disclosure of specific pieces of information about you:
If you are writing to us from the email address associated with the records that Rescue has on file for you, then to complete the verification process, we will ask you to both: 1) Confirm the action you wish us to take before we proceed and 2) Also provide a statement that you “declare under penalty of perjury that you are the person about whom the Right to Know request has been made.”
If you are not writing to us from the email address that Rescue has on file for you, then to complete the verification process, we will ask you to both: 1) Provide three specific pieces of data that we have on file for you, such as email address you used or first four digits of your mailing address and 2) Also provide a statement that you “declare under penalty of perjury that you are the person about whom the Right to Know request has been made.”
You are also permitted to designate an authorized agent to submit certain requests on your behalf. In order 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 methods before processing the authorized agent’s request.
If we are not able to successfully verify you according to the above methods, then we will not be able to comply with your request.
Rescue will not discriminate against you if you exercise your rights under CCPA. However, if your request requires us to delete, restrict or not share information, please be advised that this may inhibit some functionality of the website. Any subsequent interaction with the site after deletion may require new requests for action on your data.
How We Protect Personal Information
No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is fully secure. While we use reasonable efforts to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.

Some of our websites permit you to create an account. When you do you could be prompted to create a password. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password, and you are responsible for any access to or use of your account by someone else that has obtained your password, whether or not such access or use has been authorized by you. You should notify us of any unauthorized use of your password or account.
We will retain your personal information for the length of time needed to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. To dispose of personal data, we may anonymize it, delete it or take other appropriate steps. Data may persist in copies made for backup and business continuity purposes for additional time.

By submitting your personal information to us you agree to the transfer, storage and processing of your information in a country other than your country of residence, including, but not necessarily limited to, the United States.

California Information Sharing Disclosure
California Civil Code 1798.115(c), 1798.130(a)(5)(c), 1798.130(c), and 1798.140 indicates that companies should disclose whether the following categories of information are transferred for consideration or for an organization’s “business purpose” as that term is defined under California law. Note that while a category may be marked that does not necessarily mean that we have information in that category about you. For example, while we transfer bank account numbers for our business purpose in paying our employees (e.g., direct deposit) we do not collect or transfer bank account numbers of individuals that submit questions on our website’s “contact us” page.
