How California Residents Can Submit Requests
California residents can submit an online request here, contact us at [email protected], or call us, toll-free, at 877-ASK-AZEK. If you have a pre-existing account with us, you must submit your request through that account, but you do not have to create an account with us to submit a request.
We must verify your request before implementing it, and do so in one of two ways:
- If you have a password-protected account with us, we will verify your identity using our existing authentication practices for that account, but you must re‑authenticate yourself before we can disclose or delete the information related to your request.
- If you do not have an account with us, we verify your identity by matching information you provide as part of your request with information about you we already have.
If we cannot verify your identity with the information you provide as part of your request, we may ask you to provide additional information. We will only use that additional information in the verification process, or for security or fraud-prevention purposes, and not for any other purpose. If we cannot verify your request, we will not disclose any personal information.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless allowed by law when the request is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.
You can also submit a request to know or delete through an authorized agent. We require that the agent provide proof that you gave the agent signed permission to submit the request. If the agent cannot provide that proof, we will deny the agent’s request. We also require one of the following:
- That you verify your identity directly with us; or
- Direct confirmation from you that you provided the agent permission to submit the request.
If your authorized agent has a valid power of attorney under California Probate Code sections 4121 to 4130, we may request proof of the power of attorney instead of the foregoing.
