Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.

We may access and/or disclose your personal information if we believe such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or legal process served on the Site or A LA CARTE MARKETING; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of the Site or A LA CARTE MARKETING (including the enforcement of our agreements); or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Site’s services or members of the public.
