We may share your information within our corporate group, including a parent, subsidiary, or other affiliate of our corporate group. New Era Partners personnel are authorized to access personal information only to the extent necessary to serve the applicable purpose(s) and to perform their job functions.
Sharing with third parties
We may share your information with the following third parties for a business purpose:
Third-party service providers so that these services providers may perform business functions on our behalf (for example, payment processing and transaction fulfillment, database maintenance, sending communications, technology services, data storage and hosting, disaster recovery, search engine optimization, marketing, and data processing);
Relevant third parties in the event of a reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets or stock (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings); and

5. CONTROL OVER YOUR INFORMATION
We strive to provide you with choices regarding the information you provide to us. To that end, you may request:
access to your personal information;
correction or deletion of your personal information (we will honor your request to the extent such correction or deletion would not violate Section 8’s terms or any legal or regulatory requirement and your personal information is no longer required for a legitimate business purpose);
that you no longer receive marketing communications on behalf of yourself and/or a customer; and/or
that the processing of your personal information is restricted.
We use commercially reasonable measures to help protect information from loss, theft, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. However, please be aware that, despite our measures, no data security measures or method of transmission over the Internet or means of electronic or physical storage, is guaranteed to be absolutely secure. Please note that information collected by third parties may not have the same security protections as information you submit to us, and we are not responsible for protecting the security of such information.
Our sites are not intended for children under the age of 16. We do not knowingly collect information from children. If we learn that we have collected personal information on our sites from a child under age 16, we will delete that information promptly. If you believe that we might have any information from a child under 16, please contact us at [email protected].
8. HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR INFORMATION
Any personal information that is required for the purposes of enforcing and executing agreements with customers will be held for the duration of the contractual relationship and may be held for (a) a longer period of time where there is a legal or regulatory reason to do so (in which case it will be deleted once no longer required for the legal or regulatory purpose) or (b) a shorter period where you object to the processing of your personal information and there is no longer a legitimate business purpose to retain it.
All other personal information will be retained for as long as necessary for record retention and legal compliance purposes.
9. COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES
Cookies. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our sites, while others allow us to track your activities at our sites. There are two types of cookies: session and persistent cookies.
Session Cookies. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn off your computer. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session. This allows us to process your online transactions and requests and verify your identity as you move through our sites.
Persistent Cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer. We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity, and to display advertising on third-party sites.
Clear GIFs, pixel tags and other similar technologies. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags), in connection with our sites to, among other things, track the activities of site visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about site usage. We also use clear GIFs in HTML e-mails to our customers, to help us track e-mail response rates, identify when our e-mails are viewed, and track whether our e mails are forwarded.
