Is the information particularly private, or just of no great interest to anybody else? In the latter case, you could 'visitor message' them; click on avatar (or, lacking avatar, user name and select 'view public profile'), and you'll find the visitor message box.
Anyone could come there and read it, but why should they? And it puts up a message on the recipient's screen saying someone's trying to talk to him/her. Answering requires 'view conversation between', by the way.
