If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by email in our record or an alternative way at your option.

The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your Personal Information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we have no obligation to respond to you if your Personal Information was collected for a single, one-time transaction if such information is not sold or retained by Sourced.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.
