Restrict Processing: You have the right to restrict how we process your personal data in certain circumstances.  This is an alternative to requesting the deletion of your data. Rather than requesting we delete all your personal data, you may request that we limit our uses of your personal data to specific purposes.  You may wish to request we restrict our processing if you contest the accuracy of your personal data and we are working to verify this information, or if you want us to retain your personal data in connection to a legal claim but cease processing it.
