We require any company with which we may share Confidential Information to protect that data in a manner consistent with this policy and to limit the use of such Confidential Information to the performance of services for PAYWHIRL. PAYWHIRL may disclose Confidential Information under special circumstances, such as, to comply with court orders requiring us to do so or when your actions violate our Agreement. We do not sell or otherwise provide Confidential Information to other companies for the marketing of their own products or services.
