If we sell or transfer our business to a third party purchaser we may transfer your information provided the purchaser undertakes to use your information in accordance with this policy. We will obviously need to disclose information to employees of ours who require such information to do their jobs. We may disclose your information where the law requires us to disclose your information to law enforcement agencies, other government officials, or other third parties, as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose us to legal liability. In all other situations we will not disclose your information without giving you notice thereof and an opportunity to indicate that your information should not be disclosed.
