SHARING INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES
We may share or disclose your personally identifiable information in the following instances:
(1) To affiliates, strategic partners, agents, third party marketers, or other unaffiliated parties who are offering products or services that we believe may be of interest to you or who require your personally identifiable information for research, administrative and/or internal business purposes. These parties may use your personally identifiable information to contact you with an offer or advertisement related to a product or service, or they may use such information for their own research, administration, or business purposes. If you do not want us to share your personally identifiable information in this manner, please do not provide us with this information.

We seek to ensure that these unaffiliated third parties will not
use the personally identifiable information for any other purpose than to provide the administrative services for which they are responsible. Because such unaffiliated third- party service providers that help us administer our Websites will have access to users' personally identifiable information, if you do not wish for our unaffiliated third-party service providers to have access to your information, please do not register or submit any personally identifiable information to us.

SECURITY OF INFORMATION TRANSMISSIONS
evox follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. When you enter sensitive information, such as credit card data, the information is encrypted using SSL encryption. Any pages with forms that collect sensitive information on our web site
will utilize this technology. However, no method of transmission over the Internet and no method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
E-mail is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private or sensitive information to us by email.
