Verification will require that you verify your email and phone number and provide a copy of a government issued ID to us. We may take additional steps to verify that you are authorized to make the request. If you are an end user of Brex’s services and not a direct customer of Brex (for example, your company uses Brex and you’re an employee or authorized representative of that company), you should direct requests relating to your personal information to the administrator of your company’s Brex Account. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights.

Sale of personal information (“Do Not Sell My Personal Information”). We do not sell your personal information.

We may take additional steps to verify that you are authorized to make the request. If you are an end user of Brex’s services and not a direct customer of Brex (for example, your company uses Brex and you’re an employee or authorized representative of that company), you should direct requests relating to your personal information to the administrator of your company’s Brex Account.
