In negotiating with a third party about entering into such an arrangement, we may need to disclose your PII.

Vendors. We may from time to time retain third-party vendors in order to help us manage the Site and Services and allow us to better serve our visitors and customers. These may include third-party vendors we engage to analyze the information we collect for marketing or similar purposes.
We may also share information, including PII, to third-party vendors to help us provide the Services.

Such vendors have access to PII for a limited purpose and for a limited period of time.
