In most cases, the user can access, correct or edit the personal information to share with Karaz  via the user’s Karaz  Account. The user may request access to any personal information which Karaz  holds about him/her at any time by contacting us (see the details below).

We may charge you a fee to cover our administrative and other reasonable costs in providing the information to you. Please note that we will not charge for simply making the request and will not charge for making any corrections to your personal information.

There may be instances where we cannot grant you access to the personal information we hold.

If that happens, we will give you written reasons for any refusal.

If you believe that the personal information we hold about you is incorrect, incomplete or inaccurate, then you may request us to amend it. We will consider if the information requires amendment.
