2. How is the information used?
Idea Spectrum uses the information that you provide to process your orders and/or subscriptions. Idea Spectrum may also use the information to offer new products, services and updates.

We will not intentionally release your personalized information to anyone other than you or our agents (such as contracted fulfillment parties, if any).

These functions may include website management services, fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, or processing credit card payments. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
