We use information about our customers, their activity to provide or enhance the services we make available to our customers, communicate with our customers about additional services they may find of value, satisfy our legitimate business interests (including performing trend analysis and market studies), set prices, establish relationships, accomplish billing functions, and comply with government regulations.
