Third Parties Providing Services on Our Behalf. We sometimes use other businesses to perform services for us, such as processing payments, website hosting, conducting website usage analysis, sending email or other communications, fulfilling orders, providing marketing assistance and data analysis, clearing and processing credit card payments, or performing other administrative services. We may provide access to your Personal Information to such service providers in order for them to complete a requested transaction or otherwise to perform these services.
