While information is maintained by Valere, you may access the information that Valere has collected from you to the extent required by law to review, update, and correct inaccuracies. Because some information we collect, for example, your email address—is required to use our Services, we retain certain information as long as your account is active. You will have the opportunity to correct, transfer, update, modify, or delete this information by logging into your account and updating your information online or contacting Valere at the address listed below under the section titled “Contact Information.” Please note that some information may remain in Valere’s records even after you request deletion of your information, to the extent permitted by the Privacy Shield Principles or required by applicable laws. Additionally, there may be limits to the amount of information Valere can practically provide. For example, we may limit access to information where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to an individual’s privacy or where doing so would violate others’ rights.
