We may also share aggregated or de-identified information with companies we do business with, including our advertisers as well as government agency members or other organizational members.

We may retain your e-mail information in our server logs, our databases, and our records for as long as necessary in light of the purposes set out in this Policy, subject to any legal obligations to further retain such information.
