We reserve the right to transfer any of your personal information we hold in the event that we sell or transfer the company’s assets, in whole or in part.


We have the obligation to disclose your personal information in response to a search warrant or any other type of investigation of a legal nature, or to an investigative body in the event of a breach of agreement or a violation of the law, or following any other legal request.
