Generally, the third-party providers we use will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to be able to perform the services they provide to us.

Keep in mind that some providers may be located or have facilities located in a different jurisdiction than you or us.

The laws of the jurisdiction in which the third party provider is located may apply to your information.
