Disclosures for National Security or Law Enforcement: Under certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose your personal data in response to valid requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

You may have the right to access personal data that we hold about you and request that we correct, amend, delete it if it is inaccurate or processed in violation of our privacy commitments. These access rights may not apply in some cases, including where providing access is unreasonably burdensome or expensive under the circumstances or where it would violate the rights of someone other than the individual requesting access. If you would like to request access to, or a correction, amendment, or deletion of your personal data, you can submit a written request to www.Bishopandwaters.com/contact.html. We may request specific information from you to confirm your identity. In some circumstances we may charge a reasonable fee for access to your information.
