Service Providers

We may employ third-party companies and individuals for the following reasons:

We want to inform our Service users that these third parties have access to your Personal Information. The reason is to perform the tasks assigned to them on our behalf. However, they are obligated not to disclose or use the information for any other purpose.

Users may opt out of AdSense's personalized advertising by visiting Google's Ads Settings.
