SECTION 6 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. For these providers, we recommend that You read their privacy policies so You can understand the manner in which your information will be handled by these providers.
Specifically, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either You or us. So if You elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

If You provide us with your debit/credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

SECTION 9 – CONFIDENTIALITY
Information We collect from You confidential unless written consent is given to disclose such information.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from You to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that your data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact You to ask You for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or You have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify You and keep You updated.
If our organization is acquired or merged with another organization, your information may be transferred to the new entity.
