Under what circumstances does YRC Worldwide disclose or transfer personal information to others?

We transfer to third parties and/or release to the public certain aggregate information (for example about the visiting habits of our visitors generally or of groups of our visitors), but that data will not contain information that identifies you and, therefore, is not personal information.
