If I bought products from a website that ordered them from another website that shipped to me, is it legal for the first website to provide my product info and private address to the second website without my permission?

The products and warranty are from a website I did not do business with.

Yes, it is legal: when you purchase an item or services, the business you purchase them from can provide this information to third parties who will actually provide and/or ship the merchandise or services, so that your purchase can in fact reach you. There are limitations on sharing your information for other purposes, but not as part of fulfillment of your order.

Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved.
