If seeking information about your personal information that ARRO LAW has collected, you will be required to fill out the request form and follow the instructions you will be provided to verify your identity (including your name, address and date of birth). ARRO LAW will contact you (or your agent) within 21 days to acknowledge receipt of your request. You may make two requests every twelve (12) months. A verifiable request must:
- Provide sufficient information to allow us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
- Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate and respond to it.
- We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
ARRO LAW’s response to requests for information
- ARRO LAW will endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 60 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 120 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance. We will not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable request unless it is excessive, repetitive or manifestly unfounded.
