Accelerate Partners or a Accelerate Partners authorized agent may also use this client information to market and sell Accelerate Partners products and services. Accelerate Partners will not sell or trade a client’s personally identifiable information or CPNI unless Accelerate Partners is authorized by the client to do so or in compliance with applicable law. Clients may request that Accelerate Partners refrain from using personally identifiable information for marketing purposes by contacting Accelerate Partners or clicking on the “unsubscribe” link that we include on all commercial emails sent by Accelerate Partners.
