We will use this information to fulfill your requests and will not send communications to your contacts unrelated to your requests unless they separately consent to receive communications from us or otherwise engage with us.
Providing certain information is purely optional on your part; however, not all features and services (such as selling, donating or purchasing a device or communicating with us) would be available to you if you elect not to provide any information.
