We employ some vendors to perform functions on our behalf. Examples may include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, e-mail administrative functions, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These vendors are under a strict contractual obligation to use confidential data only for those purposes for which they are hired.

We may share Personally Identifiable Information and other data with businesses controlling, controlled by, or under common control with the Madison4Kids.
