1. Complete the online request form available here: https://www.irell.com/consumer-request
2. Contact by telephone: (888) 905-0460
b) Requests By Authorized Agents

To prevent anyone other than you, or your authorized agent, from exercising the right to know or the right to delete with respect to your Personal Information, we follow procedures to verify your, or your agent’s, identity. This process seeks to confirm that the person making a request is the person about whom we have collected Personal Information or that person’s authorized agent. The verification process involves matching data points that you provide with your request against information about you we already have in our records and that we have determined to be reliable for purposes of verifying your identity. We will use information you provide in your completed request form to verify your identity, and we may request additional information if necessary to complete the verification process.

California Consumers have the right not to be subject to discriminatory treatment by I&M for exercising their privacy rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act, and I&M will not discriminate on that basis. However, I&M may charge a California Consumer a different price or rate or provide a different level or quality of goods or services if the difference is reasonably related to the value provided to the California Consumer by the Consumer’s Personal Information. If I&M does so, it will provide Consumers with any legally required notice.
