With respect to these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies carefully so that you can understand how they will treat your personal information.
Keep in mind that some suppliers may be located or have facilities located in a jurisdiction other than yours or ours. So if you decide to pursue a transaction that requires the services of a third-party provider, then your information may be governed by the laws of the jurisdiction in which that provider is located or those of the jurisdiction in which its facilities are located.
For example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, the information belonging to you that was used to complete the transaction could be disclosed under the laws of the United States, including the Patriot Act.
