II. Information we may collect and use
We collect personal information about you to help us identify you as our potential, current, or former customer; to process your requests and transactions; to offer investment services to you; or to tell you about our products or services we believe you may want to use. The type of personal information we collect depends on the products or services you request and may include the following:

Our service providers may or may not be affiliated with us. They include financial service providers (for example, third-party administrators; broker/dealers; and other financial services companies with whom we have joint marketing agreements). Our service providers also include nonfinancial companies and individuals (for example, consultants; information services vendors; and companies that perform mailing or marketing services on our behalf). Information obtained from a report prepared by a service provider may be kept by the service provider and shared with other persons; however, we require our service providers to protect your personal information and to use or disclose it only for the work they are performing for us, or as permitted by law
We also may provide information to regulatory authorities, law enforcement officials, and others to prevent fraud or when we believe in good faith that the law requires disclosure.
