From time to time, we may establish a business relationship with other businesses whom we believe trustworthy and who we believe have privacy practices that are consistent with ours. For example, we may contract with Third-Party Providers to provide certain services, such as hosting, web maintenance, and marketing and promotions. We only provide our Third-Party Providers with the information necessary for them to perform these services on our behalf. Each such Service Provider is expected to use reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information involved in order to protect your PII from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Third-Party Providers are prohibited from using Personally Identifiable Information other than as specified.
