Our Partners and Service Providers
Mission Blue relies on a number of other companies, agents, and/or contractors to perform services on our behalf or to assist us in operating Mission Blue and providing the Services to you. For example, we may engage such service providers to provide marketing, communications, website hosting, infrastructure and IT services, to personalize and optimize the Services, process donations, provide customer service, collect debts, and analyze and enhance data. In the course of providing such services to us, these other companies may have access to information about you, including personal information. We do not authorize these companies to use or disclose your personal information, except in connection with providing the services we request from them.
One of our service providers is Google Analytics, which collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. To learn more about how Google Analytics collects and uses your data when you use the Mission Blue Services, and how you can control the information sent to Google Analytics, please review https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners.
