Disclosure of your information

If we are going to share your information in response to legal process, we’ll give you notice so you can challenge it (for example by seeking court intervention), unless we’re prohibited from doing so by law or believe doing so may endanger others. We will object to requests for information about users of our services that we believe are improper or overbroad.
Our sites do not interpret or respond to Do Not Track browser signals because there are not yet uniform industry standards for how browsers communicate that signal. Even so, as described more fully throughout this policy, we limit our use and collection of your personal information.
