IX. How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals
ccisagency.com does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising. Therefore, our Website does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) Signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you do not wish to be tracked, you can set your browser to Do Not Track, so that these sites are alerted that you do not wish to be tracked.
X. How You Can Access and Correct Your Information
To correct information about you, send a written request as described above, explaining your desired correction. Within 45 business days of receiving your request, we will either make the requested correction or tell you why we cannot. For example, we cannot correct Consumer Report Information, such as your credit report. To do this, you must contact the consumer reporting agency that provided it. If we make your requested correction, we will notify you in writing. If required by law, we will also notify others who may have given it to or received it from us. If we refuse to make the requested correction, you may file a concise written statement about why you object, including the information you think is correct. Your statement will then become part of your file.
We cannot delete all of your personal information except by also deleting your user account. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
