These Service Providers will only have access to the information needed to perform these limited functions on our behalf and are required to provide your Personal Information with at least the same level of protection and security as we use on the Website. The Service Providers are prohibited from using your Personal Information for any purpose other than that for which they were engaged by us in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
