- How do we use this information? Our primary goal in collecting personally identifying information is to provide you with a requested service, product, or information about services and products (e.g., such as announcements of new products). Second, we may collect non-identifying information about internet traffic on our Site in order to better manage our Site resources and to manage the materials on the Site.
- Do other companies or people have access to personally identifiable information I provide to Quarles? When you choose to provide information to Quarles, please keep in mind that you are providing it to Quarles, its affiliates, subsidiaries, divisions, and distributors. We may share your voluntarily provided identifiable and non-identifying information with these related parties. In addition, when you visit a Quarles Site you may be asked to provide – voluntarily – personally identifying information in the course of a requested transaction, as described above. We may use identifying information and share it with unrelated third parties when it is reasonably necessary to fulfill a request by you for a service, product, or piece of information. Otherwise, our policy is to avoid sharing such personally identifiable information to others without prior notice to you. In the course of providing a service to you, we may provide information to credit bureaus. In addition, we may buy and sell assets, lines of business and/or accounts. In the event of a sale, for example, customer information may be disclosed as a transferred business asset. We also disclose information about you to third parties in certain other circumstances, as permitted by law. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Quarles may disclose personally identifying information or other nonpublic personal information when legally required, at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation, to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our Website and applicable laws or to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Website, to protect against criminal activity, or to the extent otherwise permitted or required under state or federal law.
