In order to provide our products and services, we may, occasionally, appoint other organizations to carry out some of the processing activities on our behalf. In some circumstances, we may share your personal information with service providers who perform services based on our instructions. Our service providers are not authorized by us to use or disclose your personal information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legislation.
