For the purpose of providing BEYOND Expo’s services or fulfilling our obligations and exercising our rights under the User Agreement or this Privacy Policy, we may engage in joint marketing and other communications with third parties such as our partners (e.g. investment institutions). In order to avoid duplicative or unnecessary communications and to tailor relevant information to you, we may need to match information collected by BEYOND Expo with information collected by our partners, provided that this is permitted by law.

For example, BEYOND Expo may use tools to collect data for its partners’ websites, which may also be used for statistical purposes.

When BEYOND Expo conducts data collection for its partners, BEYOND Expo and the partner will simultaneously inform the user on the website or webpage.

We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to protect against the loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure of information. Please understand, however, that while we make every effort to protect the security of information, due to technical limitations and the possible existence of malicious online tactics, it is not always possible to guarantee the absolute security of information.

Although BEYOND Expo has taken all possible security precautions, it is possible that a third party may circumvent our security measures and gain access to our database, find your personal information, steal it, or modify it.
