- Our Third Party Vendors: We may share information about you with third party vendors who need to know information about you in order to provide their services to us, or to provide their services to you or our Communication Platforms. This group includes vendors that help us provide our services to you (like payment providers that process your credit and debit card information), fraud prevention services that allow us to analyze fraudulent payment transactions, postal and email delivery services that help us stay in touch with you, and those that help us understand and enhance our Sites (like analytics providers).

Our Data Retention Practices
We generally retain information for as long as it is necessary and relevant for our operations and to comply with applicable law.
- Operationally Necessary. We may use tracking technologies required for system administration, to prevent fraudulent activity and improve security.
- Functionality-Related. We may use tracking technologies to tell us, for example, whether you have visited the website before or if you are a new visitor and to help us identify the features in which you may have the greatest interest.
During some visits we may use software tools to measure and collect session information, including page response times, download errors, time spent on certain pages and page interaction information.
A few additional important things you should know about our use of tracking technologies (e.g., cookies, HTML-5 stored technologies):
- We may offer certain features that are available only through the use of tracking technologies.
- We may use both persistent and temporary tracking technologies. Tracking technologies (e.g., cookies) can either be persistent (i.e., they remain on your computer until you delete them) or temporary (i.e., they last only until you close your browser). You are always free to decline tracking technologies if your browser permits, although doing so may interfere with your use of the Sites. Refer to the help section of your browser, browser extensions, or installed applications for instructions on blocking, deleting, or disabling tracking technologies such as cookies.
- You may encounter tracking technologies/cookies from our third-party service providers that we have allowed on our Websites that assist us with various aspects of our Websites’ operations and services, such as Google Analytics.
