4. Information We Receive From Third Parties.

We may receive information about you from third parties. For example, if you are on another web site and you opt-in to receive information from us, that web site will forward to us your e-mail address and other information so that we may contact you.

In addition, we may receive information about you if other users of a third party web site give us access to their profiles and you are one of their "connections" or information about you is otherwise accessible through your "connections’" web page, profile page, or similar page on a social networking or other third party web site or interactive service. We may combine the information we receive from these third parties with information we collect through the Sites. In those cases, we will apply this Privacy Policy to any Personal Information received, unless we have disclosed otherwise.
