However, if we need more time to process your request, we'll promptly inform you about the reasons for the delay and the additional time required, noting that the total response time may extend to 90 days.

  • Handling of Appeals: If we decide to deny your request, we'll explain the rationale behind our decision quickly, but no later than 45 days from receiving your request. You have the right to challenge our decision. You can do so by submitting an appeal to us, using the contact information provided in this document. We will review your appeal and communicate our final decision to you in writing, including a detailed explanation for our actions or inactions, within 45 days of receiving your appeal.
