Non-personal information includes personal information that has been anonymized, de-identified, or aggregated.
We share and give access to personal information to our employees and agents (including employees and agents or our affiliates) in the course of operating our businesses. For example, if you sent us an e-mail asking a question, we would provide your e-mail address to one of our employees or agents, along with your question, in order for that person to reply to your e-mail. We may share personal information with other divisions within Prime and with our affiliate entities to ensure that we have the most up to date contact information across these entities and to coordinate the services and benefits you receive from us.
We share personal information with your health plan, your health care providers, and your pharmacies/pharmacists to coordinate your care and, as necessary, to arrange payment for services and benefits you have received. We may also share personal information with appropriate government agencies as required by law.
We may share and give access to personal information with vendors we hire to perform services on our behalf. For example, we may hire a vendor to help us send and manage e-mail. Similarly, we may hire vendors to operate some of our websites.

If instructed by your health plan, we may require that a vendor delete your information after it is used for the above purposes.
We may share personal information with a successor if all or part of our business is sold, merged, dissolved, acquired, or in a similar transaction, or in the event of a corporate reorganization.
