With Service Providers. In some cases, we use third party service providers to provide a product you order, to fulfill a service you request, or to market one of our products or services. These service providers act on our behalf. For example, we may use service providers to provide customer support or to host our Web sites. Service providers who host web pages and collect information on our behalf are strictly prohibited from using your information for their own purposes and must comply with the practices outlined in this privacy statement. Our contracts restrict service providers to use the personal information we disclose to them only to provide you the service you have requested.
With Partners. We may have limited relationships with third party business partners to offer you products or services that we believe you may find beneficial.

When you request any of these partner products or services, you are permitting us to provide your personal information to the partner to fulfill your request.
We may share anonymous, aggregate information with advertisers. Aggregate information means that your anonymous information is combined with similar anonymous information from other site users such that it no longer reflects or can be used to identify an individual user.

Again, aggregate information does not include any information that identifies you or links your identity to the information shared with these partners. We may also offer links to partner or other third party Web sites. We do not control the privacy or security practices used on these sites.
