We may pass your information to our third party service providers and subcontractors for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf. However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the information that is necessary to deliver the service. Contractually information is kept secure and used only for the purposes of delivering the required service.
We will not release your information to other third parties unless you have requested that we do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention and detection of crime, fraud or corruption.
