B. How Do We Use Your Personal Information?

We may also share your personal information with a select group of third-party service providers that carry out certain functions on our behalf. Sometimes we hire companies to help deliver products or services, like a shipping company that delivers a package. In that instance, there is a need to share your information with that company.

These companies are allowed to gather, receive, and use your information only for the purposes described in this Online Privacy Statement or as required by law.
