What Personal Information Can I Access?
Carbon allows You to access certain categories of information about You for the purpose of viewing, and in certain situations, updating that information. These categories may change as our Services change. Certain information is required to access some of our Services, so Your deletion of certain information, or provision of inaccurate information, may render the Services inoperable, in whole or in part.
What Choices Do I Have?
As stated previously, You can opt not to disclose, or allow to be disclosed, certain information to us, even though it may be needed to take advantage of certain Carbon Services.
- You are able to add or update certain information on pages. When You update information, however, we often maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our private records. As mentioned above in “What Personal Information Can I Access,” deleting or modifying information may render the Services inoperable, in whole or in part.
