We will verify your request using existing information that we have about you. We may request additional materials or information for the purposes of validating the authenticity of your request. Balsam will use the information provided in connection with a verification request solely for the purposes of verification. We will not be able to implement your request if we are unable to verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm that the personal information relates to you. We will comply with your request within 45 days of your verified request, unless we need additional time, in which case we will let you know.

However, from time to time, we make our catalog mailing list and general shopping activity available to carefully screened companies whose products may be of interest to you, and in turn, we are able to mail our catalogs to certain customers of other retail companies. Under the CCPA and existing California law, this qualifies as a "sale" of personal information.
We also work with certain advertising partners to show ads that are targeted for your interests. These activities may be considered “selling” or “sharing” of your personal information under California law (and Virginia). To opt out of these activities, you may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or fill up the form in the Do Not Sell My Personal Information link.
