We have arrangements with third party service providers under which they act as a payment gateway for you. You may choose a payment gateway to process payments from you to us. You will provide your credit/debit card and/or financial institution account information directly to the payment gateway or processor through a secure API tunnel and payment is not accessible to us or collected by us. The applicable payment gateway and/or processors privacy policy will apply to the information you provide to them.

Sharing of Information About You 

We may disclose your Personal Information to third party service providers and contractors who perform services on our behalf. For example, we may use third party service providers to administer activities, including, but not limited to, a credit card processing company to process bills, another company to provide data storage, etc. We may share your information with these third parties for those limited purposes. We may also disclose information you provide to us (i) to fulfill the purpose for which you provided it, (ii) for any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information, and/or (iii) with your consent. Those third party service providers are permitted to obtain only the Personal Information necessary for them to perform those services. To the best of our knowledge, these companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any other purpose. We require any company with which we may share Personal Information to protect that data in a manner consistent with this policy and to limit the use of such Personal Information to the performance of services for us. The third party service providers have their own privacy policies regarding the information we are required to provide to them. We recommend that you read their privacy policies in order to understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled. Because certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us, if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third party service provider, then your information may become subject of the laws of the jurisdiction in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
