We will attempt to notify you any time we are forced to disclose your personally identifiable information unless we are legally prevented from doing so.

We will cooperate with all investigations conducted by law enforcement authorities of the United States of America when legally required to do so. Cooperation with law enforcement authorities from other countries and cooperation when it is not legally required are at our sole discretion. Our discretion looks favorably on freedom and justice, and unfavorably on oppression and violence. Unless legally prohibited, we will inform you of any cooperation we provide to any law enforcement authorities.
