6. Rights of Access, Rectification, Erasure, and Restriction
Although ConvenientPower makes good faith efforts to provide Individuals with access to their Personal Information, there may be circumstances in which ConvenientPower is unable to provide access, including but not limited to, for example: where the information contains legal privilege, would compromise others’ privacy or other legitimate rights, where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the Individual’s privacy in the case in question or where it is commercially proprietary. If ConvenientPower determines that access should be restricted in any particular instance, we will provide you with an explanation of why that determination has been made and a contact point for any further inquiries. To protect your privacy, ConvenientPower will take commercially reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to or making any changes to your Personal Information.
