  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative; and

  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We reserve the right to verify your identity in connection with any requests regarding personal information to help ensure that we provide the information we maintain to the individuals to whom it pertains and allow only those individuals or their authorized representatives to exercise rights with respect to that information. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.  If you are an authorized agent making a request on behalf of a consumer, we may require and request additional information to verify that you are authorized to make that request.

We will not restrict or deny you access to our QuidelOrtho Services because of choices and requests you make in connection with your personal information.

For example, if you sign up to receive marketing communications by email, then ask QuidelOrtho to delete all your information, we will be unable to send you marketing communications. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.


We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of receipt.  If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.  Any disclosures we provide will only cover the twelve (12) month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
