Such email will be maintained in accordance with our corporate email and document retention policies.
How We Use Information
We use information collected from and about the User to provide the products and services the Users request, to tell Users about other products and services offered by Us, and to manage our web sites and servers.

We require that our service providers keep personally identifiable information confidential and not disclose it to third parties, and not use it for any other purpose. For example, we may rely on a service provider to fulfill a User’s product and service requests and answer a User’s questions, host our sites, manage payments, analyze data to send more targeted communications to the User, conduct research and analyze data to improve our products, services, and sites.
In other situations, We may disclose a User’s personally identifiable information if We are sold to another company or We acquire or merge with another company, where permitted by law to protect and defend our rights and property, including the Terms, and when required by law or any governmental authority.
