Who we share your data with

We do not sell our users’ private personal information. And we don’t give it away, either.

We share information about you in the limited circumstances detailed below and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy:

Third Party Vendors: We do not share information about you with third party vendors.

Legal Requests: we may disclose information about you in response to a court order, or other governmental request.

Business Transfers: in connection with any merger, sale of company assets, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by another company, or in the unlikely event that we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user information would likely be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. If any of these events were to happen, this GDPR Policy would continue to apply to your information and the party receiving your information may continue to use your information, but only consistent with this policy.

With Your Consent: we may share and disclose information with your consent or at your discretion.

Aggregated or De-Identified Information: we may share information that has been aggregated or reasonably de-identified, so that the information could not reasonably be used to identify you.
