- Operate this website, including tailored content to you based upon your interests, purchases, and preferences;

- Protect the safety and interests of us or other visitors to the website;

- Provide product information, marketing, or advertising;
- Communicate with you via email or SMS (based upon your explicit written consent) related to your account, products, and other services to you.
3. REASONS FOR DISCLOSING YOUR INFORMATION
We do not sell your personal information. Except as provided below, we do not share or disclose your personal information. We may disclose your personal information in the following situations:
- At your instruction.If you request us to make your information available to a third party, and such request furthers the purposes of our Services, we will do so.
- Vendors and Service Providers. In certain cases, we use the services of third-party vendors and service providers to assist us in providing the Services. We may share your personal information with such vendors and service providers solely for that purpose, such as fulfilling orders, processing payments, sending communications, limiting communications, conducting surveys, security reasons, or developing and improving our Services, including this website. These third parties are required to maintain the confidentiality of this information and are prohibited from retaining, sharing, storing or using this information for any other purposes.
- Business transitions.If we go through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition, liquidation or sale of all or a portion of our assets, the information we have about you will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. We reserve the right to transfer that information in connection with such transactions without notice to you. We will not be required to obtain your consent for such a transfer.
- Affiliates.We may share your information with our parent company, subsidiaries, affiliates, or sister companies as part of our marketing or advertising strategy.
- Current and Potential Employees. We may use the services of third parties to help us to recruit new employees and independent contractors and to manage our interactions with current employees and independent contractors. We do our best to contractually ensure that these third-party service providers comply with the policies we have adopted. We only use employment information for the direct purpose of the employment or independent contractor relationship.
- Legal grounds. We may disclose your information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to applicable law, comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on us, protect and defend our rights or property, or investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or violations of our terms of service.
- Consent. We may also share your personal information with your consent.
If our processing of your personal information is based on your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time, and we will cease collecting your personal information. However, in some cases, this may result in your inability to receive partial or full access to the Services, and your withdrawal of consent does not limit our ability to use the personal information that has been aggregated and anonymized for use by us in connection with our legitimate business efforts in the future. In addition, your withdrawal of consent does not prevent us from retaining and processing personal information if we are required to do so by applicable law or to preserve legal claims. It also does not prevent us from processing personal information that has been gathered pursuant to a different lawful basis. For example, if you give your consent for us to process your personal information, but we are also required by law to keep your personal information, that separate “lawful basis” will still apply, even if you withdraw your consent.
4. RETENTION AND SECURITY
