Sometimes it is necessary to provide personally identifiable information about you to a third party, such as to a vendor or service company that we hire to prepare your account statements or to provide support or services for one or more of our products. These vendors and service companies agree to safeguard our confidential information about you. Information may be sent via electronic secure format to any of our subsidiary companies in different locations worldwide. You have the right to access this information and upon receiving the appropriate written request CSI will provide you with a copy of such information held.
