To Whom It May Concern:

As a customer of your company, I have an existing business relationship with you. As such, under California Civil Code 1798.83, I am requesting that you disclose the categories of personal information your company has shared with others and the names of those companies with which my personal information has been shared for direct marketing purposes.

If your company does not share personal information with other companies for direct marketing purposes, please let me know in writing that this is the case. Or, if your company offers a way to opt-in or opt-out of sharing my personal information, I understand that you can send me a written copy of this policy and a cost-free way to opt out, instead of sending me the categories of information that have been shared and with whom.

[Include the following if you are sending your request to the designated disclosure request address.] As outlined in the statute, I expect to hear back from you no more than 30 days from the date of this letter, which would be [insert date here].

Thank you for your time and attention to this very important matter.
