Paynet occasionally hires other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as Web site hosting, packaging, and sending information about our products, special offers, and other services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Paynet may disclose information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Paynet or the Site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Paynet or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Paynet employees or agents, users of Paynet products or services, or members of the public.
