Also, Personal Data may be disclosed to a third party if we are legally required to do so based upon an applicable law, a court order or governmental regulation. Such disclosure is also rendered mandatory in support of any legal investigation in or outside our territory of business.

If we transfer your Personal Data in such countries, we will make sure in this case that the recipient of your Personal Data applies the level of protection required under applicable data privacy laws.
