individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be
accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may
decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic,
require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or
would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information
residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any
case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service
free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort. Some
of our services have different procedures to access, correct or delete users'
personal information. We provide the details for these procedures in the
