In such events, AfriMod may disclose name, street address, city, state, zip/postal code, country, phone number, email address and company name.
AfriMod may employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf in order to provide products and services to you. Examples include but are not limited to fulfilling orders, and handling billing and payment.
