Our Use of Information
We use your personal information in connection with delivering products and services to you. To do this, it may be necessary to share it with affiliates and other companies we work with. These include companies that manage and perform marketing services and companies whose products or services are provided as a benefit of your subscription. We may also share information with other third parties as permitted by law. For example, we disclose customer information in response to subpoenas, to agencies charged with protecting homeland security, and to help prevent fraud.
Sharing Our Information
We only share information under very limited circumstances - always under strict control against further disclosure. It is necessary to share such information, for example, with outside vendors who assist us in sending communications, shareholder reports and proxy materials to you, securities transfer agents who effect transactions in securities on your behalf. We require that these vendors keep your information confidential and we prohibit them from using your information for their own purposes.
In the event of a sale of assets, customer information may be one of the transferred assets.
