In order to manage and facilitate your program experience, we may need to share your Personal Information with certain vendors or business partners as follows:

  • Vendors and other Business Partners: We work closely with various vendors and other business partners to administer our Programs and may share your Personal Information with them in order to do so. We only share the Personal Information with vendors and other business partners that they need in order to provide specific products and/or services, such as facilitating the award ordering process, making travel registrations, etc.)
  • Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy business units or assets. In such cases, Personal Information may be one of the transferred business assets.
