1. Personal Information We Sold or Disclosed for a Business Purpose. We have not sold or disclosed to a third party any personal information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household.
2. Where Your Personal Information is Held. Information may be held at our offices and at those of third party agencies, service providers, representatives, and agents as described above (see above: “Who We Share Your Personal Information with”).
Some of these third parties may be based outside the European Economic Area. For more information, including on how we safeguard your personal information when this occurs, see below: “Transferring Your Personal Information Out of the EEA”.
1. How Long Your Personal Information Will Be Kept. We will keep your personal information while you have an account with us or while we are providing products and/or services to you. Thereafter, we will keep your personal information for as long as is necessary:

These transfers are subject to special rules under European and UK data protection law.
