To help us do this, we may share information with others, such as Monti Kids’ business partners, event organizers, financial institutions, shipping companies, and postal or government authorities (e.g., customs authorities) involved in fulfillment. As part of a transaction, we may also contact you as part of our customer satisfaction surveys or for market research purposes.

We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as providing customer support, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our Services. Such companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.

We may access or disclose your personal information if we believe such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or legal process served on Monti Kids; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Monti Kids (including the enforcement of our agreements); or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Monti Kids services or members of the public.
