Third Parties and Participating Merchant Policies
We use third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and other technology and services required to operate and maintain the Website and provide services to you. As part of this, we may be required to transfer (some of) your personal information to these vendors and partners.
Related services and offerings with links from the Website, including vendor sites, have their own privacy statements that can be viewed by clicking on the corresponding links within each respective site. Online merchants and others who participate in providing you services directly relating to the Lessons from Leaders book are encouraged to participate in industry privacy initiatives and to take a responsible attitude toward consumer privacy. However, since we do not have direct control over the policies or practices of participating merchants and other third parties, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or contents of those sites. We recommend and encourage that you always review the privacy policies of merchants and other third parties before you provide any personal information or complete any transaction with such parties.
