How Information Is Used
We use Personally Identifiable Information that you provide for our internal purposes, including, but not limited to, providing you our Service; analyzing statistics and demographics; and keeping you informed about our Website/Service.
We also work with affiliates that may have products, services, or offers about which you may be interested in receiving information. These affiliates will only have use of your Personally Identifiable Information if you choose to provide it to them. If you don’t want to receive information from our affiliates, you can let us or them know so you’re no longer contacted by our affiliates with regard to their products, services, or offers.
There are times when we may need to disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to comply with state and federal laws, to assist law enforcement and governmental agencies in preventing or investigating fraud or other crimes, or in response to a court order. In such instances, we will only provide the Personally Identifiable Information requested, and your Personally Identifiable Information will only be used for legal purposes as opposed to marketing.
Finally, if we sold or transferred our business, we would transfer your Personally Identifiable Information to the purchaser as appropriate and might also retain a copy of your Personally Identifiable Information for any new business ventures we would start.
