We also may share Personal Information to enforce our rights, protect our property or protect the rights, property or safety of others, or as needed to support external auditing, compliance and corporate governance functions. We will disclose Personal Information as we deem necessary to respond to a subpoena, regulation, binding order of a data protection agency, legal process, governmental request or other legal or regulatory process. We may also share Personal Information as required to pursue available remedies or limit damages we may sustain.

We delete data at our discretion, typically in accord with our data retention and destruction policies.

We, and our third party service providers, employ industry-standard security measures designed to protect the security of all information submitted through the Services. However, the security of information transmitted through the internet can never be guaranteed. Accordingly, and despite our reasonable efforts to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of the Personal Information you transmit to us, or to or from the Services.
