Mesothelioma.com respects your control over your information and, upon request, we will confirm whether we hold or are processing information that we have collected from you.
You also have the right to amend or update inaccurate or incomplete PII, request deletion of your PII, or request that we no longer use it. Under certain circumstances we will not be able to fulfill your request, such as if it interferes with our regulatory obligations, affects legal matters, we cannot verify your identity, or it involves disproportionate cost or effort, but in any event, we will respond to your request within a reasonable time frame and provide you an explanation. In order to make such a request of us, please email us at [email protected].
Please note that for PII that we have obtained or received for processing from a separate, unaffiliated entity which determined the means and purposes of the information gathered, all such requests should be made to that entity directly. We will honor and support any instructions they provide us with respect to your PII.
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on our website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies.

In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. We may also disclose your personal information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or other legal process, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect our safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud or respond to a government request.
Mesothelioma.com takes appropriate security measures to protect personal information against loss, misuse, unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction. Access of PII made available to Mesothelioma.com is restricted to those who need such access in the course of their duties for us.
