WHY WE DISCLOSE YOUR INFORMATION
The following are specific reasons why we may share your information.
Third-Party Processing. We may disclose your information to third parties who assist us with various tasks, including payment processing, hosting services, email delivery, and customer service. We may not always disclose these third-party processors if not required by law.
By Law. We may share your data as required by law or respond to legal process, including a subpoena, or as necessary to protect others’ rights, property, and safety. This includes sharing information with other parties to prevent or address fraud and to avoid credit risks.
To Protect Our Company. We may use your information to protect our Company, including to investigate and remedy any violations of our rights or policies. We may also disclose your information as reasonably necessary to acquire and maintain insurance coverage, manage risks, obtain financial or legal advice, or exercise or defend against legal claims.
Third-Party Partners. To provide our services and administer our rewards and promotional programs, we may share your information (excluding Financial Data) with our third-party promotional and marketing partners, including, without limitation, businesses participating in our various programs. With your permission, third-party applications or services may access your Personal Information. We use standard OAuth (open authorization) to permit you to share your Personal Information with other websites and services, such as Facebook and Twitter (e.g., when you agree to a pop-up requesting you to allow another application to access your account information). We also use OAuth to allow us to share information about you that is stored by us without sharing your security credentials.
We may also employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples may include providing technical assistance, order fulfillment, customer services, and marketing assistance. These other companies will have access to your data only as necessary to perform their functions and to the extent permitted by law.
Additionally, we may disclose your information to certain third parties (as listed on our website) to enable them to contact you so that they can offer you relevant goods and services.
Advertisers. We may use third-party advertising companies to run and manage our ads, to produce ads that appear when you visit our Websites or mobile apps. These companies may use information about your visit to our website and other websites that are contained in web cookies (as described below) to offer you personalized advertisements about goods and services that might interest you. We cannot control the activities of such other advertisers or web sites. You should consult the respective Privacy Policies of these third-party advertisers for more detailed information on their practices as well as for instructions about how to opt-out of certain practices.
Other Third Parties. We may share information with advertisers, investors, or other third parties to conduct general business analysis. If we do so, we will make reasonable efforts to inform You if required by law.
Interaction with others. Suppose you interact with others on our website or mobile apps, such as participating in a group chat or an online group course. In that case, other users may have access to some of your data, including your name, profile picture, and your history of interaction with our websites, such as prior comments or posts.
Online postings. When you post online, your posts may be viewed by others, and we may distribute your comments outside the website.
External Links. Our website may include hyperlinks to other websites not controlled by us. We suggest you exercise caution when clicking on a hyperlink. Although we use reasonable care in including a hyperlink on our web page, we do not regularly monitor these third parties’ websites. We are not responsible for any damage or consequences you suffer by using these hyperlinks. We are not bound by the Privacy Policies of any third party website that you access by a hyperlink, nor are they bound by ours.

Other purposes. We may disclose your personal data as necessary to comply with any legal obligation or protect your interests or the vital interests of others or our Company.
Cookies, Log Files, and Web Beacons. Like many other Web sites, we make use of log files. These files merely log visitors to the site – usually a standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses and other such information are not linked to any personally identifiable information.
PROCESSING YOUR INFORMATION
For the most part, we do not process your information in-house but give it to third party processors for processing. For example, when PayPal takes your payment information, they are a third party processor. They process your payment and remit the funds to us. So in many instances, it will be necessary for us to transmit your information to a third party processor, as we cannot perform these functions. More detail on third party processing is provided below.
However, we may, from time to time, process your data internally. The legal basis for this processing is your consent to the processing and our need to conduct our legitimate business interests. Our purposes in processing this information, if we do, is to administer, maintain, and improve our website and offerings, to enter into contracts with you, to fulfill the terms of those contracts, to keep records of our transactions and interactions, to be able to provide you with goods and services, to comply with our legal obligations, to obtain professional advice, and to protect the rights and interests of our Company, our customers (including you), and any third parties.
