These third parties may include:
- Administrative service providers who, for example, process transactions for your account, print checks or prepare account statements;
- Companies that provide services for us to help market our products to you; and

When information is shared with third parties, they are legally obligated to maintain the confidentiality of the information and to limit their use of it to servicing your account, except as permitted or required by law.
Confidentiality and Security
We restrict access to your nonpublic personal information to authorized employees who need to access such information in order to provide services or products to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your nonpublic personal information.
