If you are an End User who has a relationship with one of our Customers, and you have a question about how your personal information is collected, used, or shared, or would like to exercise any rights you may have with respect to your personal information, please contact the Customer with which you have a relationship directly.
We will only collect, use, and share personal information where we are satisfied that we have an appropriate legal basis to do so. Subject to Customer consent if required by law, we may collect the following categories and types of Customer Information as relevant to the Services with which a Customer is engaging:
How we use your personal information. We use your personal information to provide the Services. In providing the Services, we may use your personal information for the following business purposes:
Our Processing of Sensitive Personal Information: Sensitive Personal Information includes personal information defined as sensitive under the applicable privacy and data protection laws. When we collect Sensitive Personal Information about you, we will limit our use and disclosure of that information to what is necessary to perform the Services, unless we are required to do otherwise under applicable laws.
