How we use the personally identifiable information you provide
Disclosure of your personally identifiable information
Your personally identifiable information may be passed to and used by our third party partners and service providers in connection with providing services to you on the Site, delivering or making our services available to you and/or in association with our operation of neighbourhoodwatch.net. Please note that some of our third party partners and service providers may be located overseas in countries which do not have as extensive data protection laws as in the United Kingdom.
Other web sites
Please note that our forums are open to the public and if you choose to disclose personally identifiable information in these areas you are consenting to its unrestricted distribution in a public forum throughout neighbourhoodwatch.net and to and by other members of the Site. We therefore cannot be responsible for the protection or security of such information, regardless of its sensitivity. You disclose all such information on our forums entirely at your own risk.
Third party personally identifiable information
You must not disclose personally identifiable information relating to any third party on our forums or in conjunction with any of our services unless you have their express consent to do so.

You provide all such information at your own risk.
