These third parties are limited by law or by contract from using the information for secondary purposes beyond the purposes for which the information is shared.
  1. We share information with companies that help us process the transactions you request and protect our customers’ transactions from fraud, such as sharing your credit card number with a service that screens for lost and stolen card numbers. See “Transaction Information” in Section B above. Additionally, if you go into a negative balance and owe us money, we may share information with processing companies including collection agencies.

  3. We disclose information that we in good faith believe is appropriate to cooperate in investigations of fraud or other illegal activity, or to conduct investigations of violations of our Terms of Use.
