Unless otherwise stated in this privacy policy, we do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer your Personal Information to outside parties.  This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our Site, conducting our business, or serving you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.  For example, if you express an interest in renting or purchasing commercial or residential spaces at any of our properties, we may share your contact information with the relevant owners, landlords, and brokers.  We may also release your information when we believe in good faith that such release is appropriate to comply with the law, to enforce our Site policies, or to protect our or others’ rights, property and safety.
