We may also use the information you provide to us to contact you for reasons related to your original communication to us. Additionally, we may periodically send you promotional e-mails about existing or prospective products and services offered by Longitude, as well as to obtain information to better understand our users.

We may disclose the information we collect about you to our affiliates and to nonaffiliated third parties that perform services on our behalf, including, without limitation, marketing services; provided, however, that we will not disclose any credit card numbers which may be provided by you except for the purpose of payment for services.

With regard to non-personally identifiable information, Longitude is currently using and has contracted with third party vendors to track and analyze usage and volume statistical information from our users to administer our content in order to improve our services. We may also perform statistical analysis of user behavior in order to measure interest in our online products and services for product development purposes.

Longitude will not disclose any personally identifiable information about our current or former users to anyone, except as permitted or required by law, or as described herein. Longitude will endeavor to maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality of the information that we collect online.

As a general rule, Longitude will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except under one of the following circumstances: we have your permission; we determine in good faith that it is legally required to be revealed by any relevant statute, regulation, ordinance, rule, administrative or court order, decree, or subpoena; information revealed during the course of Longitude's enforcement of the policies and procedures of this Web site; information that we determine must be disclosed to correct what we believe to be false or misleading information or to address activities that we believe to be manipulative, deceptive or otherwise a violation of law; where you are otherwise notified at the time we collect the data; where we need to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested; when disclosed to an affiliate of Longitude or when such disclosure is made subject to confidentiality restrictions in connection with a sale, merger, transfer, exchange, or other disposition (whether of assets, stock, or otherwise) of all or a portion of the business conducted by the Web sites to which the Longitude privacy policy applies.

Longitude may share the non-personally identifiable information that Longitude gathers, in aggregate form only, with advertisers and other partners.
