Strategy Companion contracts with third-party service providers and suppliers to deliver complete products, services and customer solutions described in “How we use your information.” Suppliers and service providers are required to keep confidential the information received on behalf of Strategy Companion and may not use it for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for Strategy Companion. These service providers may change or we may contract with additional service providers to better accommodate our customers. Strategy Companion will not share personal information with any other third parties without your permission, unless required by law enforcement action, subpoena, or local law.
Strategy Companion or its related entities could merge with or be acquired by another business entity or some or all of their respective assets could be acquired. If such a combination or acquisition occurs, Strategy Companion will make every reasonable effort to notify you in the event we share with the merging or acquiring entity some or all of your personal information to continue serving you.
