The time period for LMC to respond to an employee for any verifiable request may be extended by up to a total of 90 days where necessary, taking into account the complexity and number of the requests. LMC will inform the employee of any such extension within 45 days of receipt of the request, together with the reasons for the delay.
If LMC does not take action on a request, it will inform the employee within the time period permitted of response of the reasons for not taking action and any rights the employee may have to appeal the decision.
If requests from an employee are manifestly unfounded or excessive, LMC may either charge a reasonable fee, taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or communication or taking the action requested, or refuse to act on the request and notify the employee of the reason for refusing the request.

LMC is under no legal obligation to take any action in the event of a dispute between or among persons claiming rights to personal information in LMC’s possession.
LMC is not liable if a service provider, contractor, or third party receiving personal information uses that information in violation of CPRA restrictions without LMC’s knowledge.
The right to delete and the right to opt out do not apply to LMC’s use or disclosure of particular pieces of an employee’s personal information if the employee has consented to the use or disclosure of that information to produce a physical item if LMC has incurred significant expense in reliance on the employee’s consent and compliance with the employee’s request to delete the employee’s personal information would not be commercially reasonable. LMC will comply with the employee’s request as soon as it is commercially reasonable to do so.
