In certain instances, we may make your information available to third parties with who we have a relationship by which that third party is providing services on our behalf. We will only provide those third parties with information that is necessary for them to perform the services and we require that those third parties first agree in writing to maintain the confidentiality of the information provided to them and we prohibit them from using that information for any purpose other than to provide the services on our behalf. We may also disclose the information to our business partners, for marketing and other purposes which we believe may be beneficial to you.
