We may disclose personal information you provide to independent contractors, vendors, service providers, or consultants who are engaged by or working with Axium and who need access to such information to carry out their programs or services. We may collaborate with other vendors or organizations to provide specific programs or services and will share information with them in order to facilitate their provision of such programs or services.

We want you to feel confident in our security when using the Services, but we cannot guarantee the security of any information from or about you 100% of the time. Please refer to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s website for information on how to protect yourself from identity theft.
