These outside contractors, agents, or sponsors may only use your PII to provide Cocina with a specific service and not for any other purpose without your consent. Cocina may also provide your PII to a third party in those instances where you have chosen to receive certain information and have been notified that the fulfillment of such a request requires the sharing of your PII.
Cocina may also customize the advertising and marketing messages you receive on our Site, or may work with outside companies to do so.
