ARTICLE 5 - SERVICES PROVIDED BY THIRD PARTIES
In general, the third party suppliers we use will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies regarding the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase transactions.
With respect to these suppliers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies carefully so that you can understand how they will treat your personal information.
You should keep in mind that some suppliers may be located or have facilities in a different jurisdiction than you or us. Therefore, if you decide to proceed with a transaction that requires the services of a third party supplier, your information may be governed by the laws of the jurisdiction in which that supplier is located or the jurisdiction in which its facilities are located.
For example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed through a payment gateway located in the United States, your information used to complete the transaction may be disclosed under United States law, including the Patriot Act.
