These service providers are obligated to protect your information and PII and may be located wherever the Company operates.
At times, we may provide third parties and/or service providers with certain information and PII to provide or improve our products and services, including to deliver products, or to help the Company market to consumers. When we do this, we require those third parties and/or service providers to handle it in accordance with relevant laws. Information and PII will not intentionally be shared by us with third parties and/or service providers for their marketing purposes or for a subsequent sale without our consent.

We may decline to process requests that are frivolous/vexatious, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. We may also decline aspects of deletion or access requests if we believe doing so would undermine our legitimate use of data for anti-fraud and security purposes as described earlier.
