The Foundation does not sell, rent, or otherwise disclose your personal data to any third parties, except as described below.
The Foundation may disclose your personal data to third party service providers who use the information to perform services on the Foundation’s behalf.

The Foundation maintains what it considers to be appropriate technical and organizational measures to prevent unauthorized access to or disclosure of your data. The Foundation also limits access to your personal data to the Foundation’s agents and third party service providers who need to know that information in order to provide services to the Foundation and you.

The Forums are operated in the United States. If you are located anywhere outside of the United States, please be aware that information the Foundation collects, including personal information, may be transferred to, processed, and stored in the United States. By using the website or providing the Foundation with any information, you consent to the transfer, processing, and storage of the Foundation’s information in the United States.
Under California law, a California resident with whom the Foundation has an established relationship has the right to request certain information with respect to the types of personal information the Foundation has shared with third parties for their direct marketing purposes (if any), and the identities of those third parties, within the immediately preceding calendar year, subject to certain exceptions. In response to a written request, the Foundation is allowed to provide a cost-free means to opt-out of such sharing.
Since the Foundation does not provide your personal data to third parties for their direct marketing purposes, it is not necessary for the Foundation to establish this procedure; however, if you do not want the Foundation to use your personal data to provide information about the Foundation’s programs, please follow the cost-free opt-out procedures in the Individual Rights section of this Policy.
