We require that these vendors and partners protect the customer information we provide to them and limit their use of Sensitek customer data to the purposes for which it was provided. We do not permit these types of vendors and partners to use this information for their own marketing purposes.
As described in more detail in other sections of this policy, Sensitek also may share certain information with outside companies, for example, to assist with the delivery of advertising campaigns, or preparing and sharing aggregate reports.
