III. DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
We are committed to maintaining your trust, and we do not disclose your information except as follows:
Authorized third-party vendors and service providers. We share your information with third-party vendors and service providers that help us provide you specialized services when you access them, including program registration, e-books, e-magazines, and online databases.
Business transfers. We may share your information in connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of a website, a merger, consolidation, asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.
Legal purposes. We may disclose information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, legal process, law enforcement requests, legal claims or government inquiries, and to protect and defend our or others’ rights, interests, safety, and security.

If you access third-party services, such as Facebook or Twitter, through the Services, these third parties may be able to collect information about you and notify your connections on the third-party services about your use of the Services, in accordance with their own privacy policies.
We use reasonable measures to help protect information from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Please understand that no data storage system or transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure.
V. YOUR CHOICES
You may be able to refuse or disable cookies by adjusting your web browser settings. Because each web browser is different, please consult the instructions provided by your web browser (typically in the “help” section). Please note that you may need to take additional steps to refuse or disable some technologies. If you choose to refuse, disable, or delete these technologies, some of the functionality of the Services may no longer be available to you.
VI. “Do Not Track” Signals
Some web browsers may transmit "do-not-track" signals to websites. Because of differences in how web browsers implement this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. Standards-setting organizations have not decided what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals. We currently do not take action in response to these signals. If and when a final standard is accepted, we may reassess how to respond to these signals.
VII. THIRD-PARTY LINKS AND COOKIES
The Services may contain links to content maintained by third parties that we do not control. We may allow third parties to place and read their own cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to collect information automatically through the Services. These third parties may collect information over time and across different websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these third parties, and we recommend that you read their privacy policies.
