Rights for California Residents

If you are a California resident, you have the right to request disclose of the specific pieces of personal information that BlockTrust may have collected regarding you. California residents also have the right to request deletion of personal information that BlockTrust may have collected regarding you.

In order to request a copy of personal information or to request deletion of personal information, California residents can forward verifiable consumer requests to BlockTrust through one of the following methods:
