Depending on the jurisdiction in which you reside, you may have an authorized agent submit an access request on your behalf. If you wish to use an authorized agent, you must provide the party with written permission signed by you. We may deny a request from an authorized agent if the agent cannot provide to Terminal your signed permission demonstrating that they have been authorized to act on your behalf.
