Midwest may share any information collected from you with our affiliates, advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners, and service providers for the purpose of extending offers of goods and services without your consent. Midwest may provide offers of goods and services to you by mail, e-mail, and telephone. When making such offers, Midwest will do so without sharing your Personal Information with the third parties who provide these goods and services on whose behalf Midwest extends the offers. Midwest accomplishes this by controlling the process by which the offers are extended. The third party extending the offer gets no information about you unless, and until, you respond to the offer.
