Otherwise, we match personal information that you provide us against personal information we maintain in our files. The more risk entailed by the request (e.g., a request for specific pieces of personal information), the more items of personal information we may request to verify you. If we cannot verify your identity to a sufficient level of certainty to respond security to your request, we will let you know promptly and explain why we cannot verify your identity.
E. Authorized Agents
If an authorized agent submits a request on your behalf, the authorized agent must submit with the request a document signed by you that authorizes the authorized agent to submit the request on your behalf. In addition, we may ask you or your authorized agent to follow the applicable process described above for verifying your identity. You can obtain our “Authorized Agent Designation” form by contacting us at DSR@swinerton.com.
