These disclosures are made in good faith and belief that such disclosures are reasonably necessary for enforcing this Privacy Policy or for complying with the applicable laws and regulations.

Of course, our use of any information we gather will always be consistent with the policy under which the information was collected, regardless of what the new policy may be.
