USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
The Rodeo may match specific and/or aggregated Personal Information with third party data to provide you with product and content offerings that interest you and improve our advertising and marketing efforts. The Rodeo also may disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to potential sponsors, partners, other third parties, our affiliate companies, and for other lawful purposes.

These third party providers are not permitted to retain or use Personal Information for any purpose unrelated to providing the service.
We reserve the right to disclose Personal Information when needed to comply with the law or a legal process, cooperate with investigations of purported unlawful activities, to identify persons violating the law, or in connection with the sale of part or all of the Rodeo.
