HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below. We may use the information you provide about yourself to fulfill your requests for our products, programs, and services, to respond to your inquiries about our offerings, to offer you other products, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you and to notify you if you win one of our contests. We may share information you provide about yourself with our trusted business partners, affiliates, parents, subsidiaries and franchisees (collectively our “Business Partners”) in order to communicate special promotions or offers. We might also tell you about new features or products. These might be our own offers or products, or third-party offers or products we think you might find interesting. We may share information with third parties who perform services on our behalf. For example, we share information with vendors who help us manage our online registration process or who assist us in providing the Services. Some vendors may be located outside of the United States. We may share information with any successor to all or part of our business. For example, if part of our business is sold we may give our customer list as part of that transaction. We may share information with our Business Partners. For example, if we are working with a third party and running a joint promotion we may share your information with that third party, and we may share information for other reasons we may describe to you.
COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT
