We use the collected information to set up accounts for our business customers.  We may also use personal information to contact individuals at our current or prospective business customers to further discuss their interest in our services and to send related information to them, if such individual has so opted to receive these communications.  You will always have the opportunity to choose to opt-out from receiving our newsletter or other non-account related emails.  We also reserve the right to use aggregated data for any lawful purpose, provided that the data is not linked to any specific individual.

To be able to serve you, your personal information may be collected, stored and/or processed or otherwise used by or on our behalf in the United States by third party service providers, to perform cloud storage, payment processing and functions on our behalf.  As a result, U.S. courts, government or law enforcement agencies could obtain disclosure of such information under U.S. law.  Except where we are required by law to disclose personal information, we will use reasonable efforts to require any person to whom we provide your personal information to agree to comply with our then current Privacy Policy.  However, to the extent allowed under applicable law, we will have no liability to you if any person fails to do so.
