If you would like to use an authorized agent registered with the California Secretary of State to exercise your rights, we may request evidence that you have provided such agent with power of attorney or that the agent otherwise has valid written authority to submit requests to exercise rights on your behalf. We reserve the right to deny requests from authorized agents in certain circumstances, such as where we have a reasonable belief that the request is fraudulent.
Avanade may offer certain financial incentives for the collection, sale, or deletion of personal information. Where we would do so, we will provide California residents additional information where required by California law.
To the extent that the processing of your personal information is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw such consent at any time by contacting Avanade’s Data Privacy Officer at AvanadeDPO@avanade.com or +1 844 595 1670 (US Toll free).
