How We Share Your Information With Others
Customer information is an important part of our business. As a result, we only disclose this information as described in this section. The way we share information with outside parties is described below.
To facilitate our ability to match buyers and suppliers, prospective buyers using our services will be provided information about suppliers relevant to the buyer’s request or inquiry using such services. This includes supplier contact information, company background information and, where appropriate, ratings or reviews.
In that same regard, suppliers whose products or services are relevant to a prospective buyer’s request may be provided with that prospective buyer’s information. We contractually limit use of the buyer's information (including all forms of contact information submitted) by the seller to communicating with the buyer, or permitting its marketers, resellers or other service providers to communicate with the buyer, about their desired purchase.
In addition, suppliers may receive information about buyers in a manner that does not disclose personally identifiable information. Examples include data that are aggregated across a group of buyers or feedback that is provided without attribution to a specific person or company.
Except as described above, we will not otherwise use or disclose any of your personally identifiable information, except to the extent reasonably necessary: (i) to correct technical problems and malfunctions and to technically process your information; (ii) to protect the security and integrity of our Web site; (iii) to protect our rights and property and the rights and property of others; (iv) to take precautions against liability; (v) to the extent required by law or to respond to judicial process; or (vii) to the extent permitted under other provisions of law, to provide information to law enforcement agencies or for an investigation on a matter related to public safety, as applicable.
