We also collect other information that is not linked to your personal data such as your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Site.
We may share the personal data that you provide to us among our affiliates and partner companies and organizations that are responsible in whole or in part for processing or fulfilling your order or request, marketing our products and to any successor to our business.
Other than for these uses, we will not otherwise use, share, disseminate, publish or disclose your personal data (except as may reasonably be required in response to litigation, investigations or other legally required disclosures).
