We do not honor any web browser “Do Not Track” signals or other mechanisms that provide you with the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. At present, no universally accepted standards exist on how companies should respond to do-not-track signals. In the event a final universally accepted standard is established, we will assess and provide an appropriate response to these signals.

We may use or partner with third-parties, agents or contractors for various purposes in connection with our business and operations (collectively, “Service Providers”), including billing, payment services and the performance of services on our behalf, such as gathering and analyzing information and the provision of services to you.

We may also share information, including your personal data, with these Services Providers in order to enable them to perform these responsibilities and to provide these services.
