For example, we may use service providers to host our website, store data and provide back-up services, provide customer support software as a service, process customer payments, provide data analytics services, conduct surveys, or obtain customer feedback. Our list of trusted Service Providers (also known as sub-processors) is available upon written request by contacting us at email@example.com.

Where a disclosure of our customers’ information is required by applicable law, we promptly notify our customer prior to complying with such requirements (to the extent we are not prohibited from doing so) and fully cooperate with our customer’s instructions with respect to our response.
