In addition, personally identifiable information about you will sometimes be disclosed to others (such as our employees, contractors, and agents for internal business purposes), as well as outside auditors, professional advisors, service providers, potential business partners, and regulators, with or without your written consent, if necessary to render the Services or to conduct a legitimate business activity related to the Services.

If you wish to remove your name from such lists or limit the use of your name and address at any time, please contact us in person, in writing, or by telephone at 1-844-4MB-LINK.

You may not opt out of these Service related and transactional communications.
RETENTION OF INFORMATION
MB Link’s maintenance of personally identifiable information collected during the time you are a User will be in accordance with MB Link’s Document Retention Policy.
