We will disclose your relevant information to third parties to charge your credit card, fill your order, deliver your order, provide customer service and deliver promotional e-mails to you from PVI. For example, we must release your credit card information to the card-issuing bank to confirm payment; and release your address and telephone information to the delivery service to deliver products that you ordered.
