We will only keep the type of card used, the expiration date, and the first 2 and last 4 digits for reference.
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering and expanding our business activities, providing customer service and making available other products and services to our customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our web site, new services and special offers we think you will find valuable. We may also send out a periodic newsletter. You may notify us at any time if you do not wish to receive these offers by emailing us at email@example.com.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
We will not rent or sell your personal information to third parties. Some external partners are used to facilitate our business, including, but not limited to, sending email and processing credit card payments. In connection with these offerings and business operations, our partners and other third parties may have access to your personal information for use in connection with business activities. As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or any dissolution.
