To the extent that you provide personally identifiable information to websites that link to or from our Site, different rules may apply to the use and disclosure of your personally identifiable information. To the extent that the Site includes third-party advertisements, the privacy policy of the advertiser providing the advertisement will govern the use of your personally identifiable information collected during your access to the advertisement.
