Under what other circumstances may we share your personal information?



In addition to sharing your personal information with third parties as described above, we may also release your personal information to other third parties if we believe that such release is necessary (a) to comply with the law (e.g., a legal process or a statutory or regulatory authorization or requirement) or a court order, (b) in order to apply or enforce the Terms of Use or otherwise protect our interests, (c) in order to protect you, other Users or Subscribers, or us from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of the Services or from other harm, or (d) if we reasonably believe that a danger to any person or property requires the disclosure of such personal information.
