We may share your information, including Personal Information, with third parties if you provide us with authorization to do so.

2.3. Service Providers

We may share your Personal Information with third-party service providers, but only to the extent necessary for them to assist us in providing our Services. For example, if you purchase Services, we will share your Billing Information with third-party payment processors to the extent necessary to process your payment.

2.4. Responses to Legal Process, Subpoenas or Court Orders

We will not voluntarily disclose your Personal Information. However, we may disclose your Personal Information as required by law, such as in response to a court order, subpoena, or similar legal process legally requiring us to produce the information. If legally permitted and feasible, we will give you notice of our receipt of a demand for your Personal Information and provide you a reasonable time in which to seek to quash such demand in court, or otherwise obtain a withdrawal or modification of the demand, before complying with the demand.

2.5. Business Transfers

Your Personal Information may be included in the event that some or all of our assets are sold, assigned or transferred in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, or in the event of bankruptcy.

2.6. Academic Research

We may share non-personally identifiable and non-privileged information about you and other users, in aggregate form, to third-party academic researchers. We require all third-party researchers to use such anonymized information for no purposes other than academic research.

We take commercially reasonable steps to protect the security of your User Information. Nonetheless, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent our computers from being illegally accessed, and the data on them stolen or altered, and we assume no liability or responsibility to you or to any third party arising out of any loss, misuse, destruction, or alteration of your User Information.
