We process data by selling it and transferring it to our clients to enable our clients to deliver to you, products, services and information that you have expressed interest in, or that are compatible with the reason you provided your personal data. We may do this because you gave your consent. Once we have delivered your personal data to our client, that client becomes the controller of your personal data and they will treat your personal data in accordance with their privacy policy.

This means your data may be transferred to and stored in computers outside of your state or country and the data protection laws may be different from those where you live. By agreeing to this policy, you agree to such a transfer.

Data is deleted from our storage on 3rd party sites on a regular basis.
