Where you provide express consent for us to do so, we may:

  • share your Personal Information with other companies in our group, record labels, publishers, authors (or their agents), artists (or their agents) and or our partner ministries, who are offering products or services that we believe may be of service or interest to you, or who may contact you with an offer or advertisement, or they may use such information for their own research or business purposes, or other purposes you agree to.

Disclosure of Personal Information

To help us provide you with superior service, timely completion of purchases and returns, as well as accurate shipments, we may share certain information relating to you within the David C Cook corporate family of entities which we are part of. We may also share certain Personal Information with strategic, co-branded, or joint partners and with third party processors and vendors, as necessary, to process your orders or requests and otherwise administer the account (however, we will only share credit or debit card information as required to effectively process your credit or debit card payment, or to analyze trends or usage of our website). These entities help us provide many important services to you, such as extending credit, fulfilling and shipping orders, providing customer service and performing customer satisfaction surveys.

Your election to opt-out of the data sharing within the “Your Rights” section entitled “How to Opt Out of Future Communications” is not an opt-out for the data sharing described in this paragraph.

On occasion, we may be (or have a good faith belief that we are) required by law or litigation to disclose Personal Information pertaining to you. We may also disclose such information if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance or safety, disclosure is necessary. At times, we may share Personal Information in aggregate, so that no one individual can be identified (i.e., anonymous).

We may also transfer Personal Information to a third party as a result of a sale or acquisition, merger, or bankruptcy involving us.

Independent Contractors

From time to time, we may use certain independent contractors and other third parties to operate components of our site, fulfill orders, or assist us in operating or improving our site.  In this capacity, we may allow these independent contractors and third parties to collect the information described in this Privacy Policy for us.
