Disclosure of Personal Information
We are not in the business of selling personal information and therefore we will not disclose your personal information to anyone except as provided in this policy.

We will obviously need to disclose personal information to employees of ours who require such information to do their jobs. There may be situations where the law requires us to disclose your personal information. In all other situations, we will not disclose your personal information without giving you notice thereof and an opportunity to indicate that your personal information should not be disclosed.
