To Third-Party Service Providers Providing Services on FlowTracs Behalf

We may from time to time employ third-parties to perform functions on our behalf, and thus, we may also share your personal data with third-party service providers that assist us with providing content, fulfilling your requests, improving our content, services or advertising, or otherwise performing services for us.

Additionally, you may request, sometimes through your use of an interactive feature or third- party application, that we share personal data about you with a third-party, and we will typically do so in those circumstances. If you consent or request to receive communications from third-parties, you will need to communicate with them directly if you later decide that you no longer wish to receive their communications.

The provisions above apply to our sharing of personal data with Affiliates and third-party service providers. They do not cover use of personal data that those Affiliates and third-party service providers collect directly from you. Such use of personal data is covered by the relevant Affiliate’s and/or third-party’s privacy policy and not this Privacy Policy.
