These parties are contractually prohibited from using personally identifiable information for any purpose other than for the purpose iDeals specifies. We do provide non-personally identifiable information to certain service providers for their use on an aggregated basis for the purpose of performing their contractual obligations to us.

We also reserve the right to contact you if compelled to do so as part of a legal proceeding or if there has been a violation of any applicable licensing, warranty and services agreements.
iDeals is retaining these rights because in limited cases we feel that we may need to contact you as a matter of law or regarding matters that will be important to you. These rights do not allow us to contact you to market a new or existing service if you have asked us not to do so, and issuance of these types of communications is rare.
When you create a personal account with iDeals and/or provide your email address and other personal identification information, based on your personal preferences, we may periodically contact you via email and provide information about special offers and promotions that may be of interest to you. These communications will relate to iDeals offers that we believe would be of interest to you.We may use a third party email service provider to send emails. This service provider is prohibited from using your email address for any purpose other than to send iDeals related email. If you do not wish to receive emails with updates and information please unsubscribe by sending email to: email@example.com. In addition, every time you receive an email you will be provided the choice to opt-out of future emails by following the instructions provided in the email.
If you wish to opt out of receiving emails, the sharing or retention of any personal identification information, or otherwise change your personal preferences, you may contact iDeals by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To ensure that your request is honored, you must provide iDeals with information sufficient for us to accurately identify and access your records. The information we require is your full name, company name and the email address you provided to iDeals when you requested services or products. iDeals reserves the right to contact you to verify that we have accurately identified your record.
