The third parties with whom we conduct business are authorized to use your information only to perform the service for which they are hired. They are required to abide by the terms of our Privacy Policy including taking reasonable measures to ensure your personal information is secure. We may also share aggregated data with third parties for analysis and research purposes. This data does not contain name, address or other personally identifiable information.

Any personally identifiable information you submit on a social media Web site, such as Facebook or Twitter, bulletin board, blog, chat room, comment about a product, or any other public forum on this Web site can be read, collected or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages.
