You should assume that we will use all information for all lawful purposes except insofar as this Privacy Policy expressly limits our use of your information in some way.  We reserve the right, but do not undertake a duty, to notify you of court orders, subpoenas or other legal process if allowed. If you do not want us to respond to legal process compelling us to disclose your information, you need to seek a valid order permitting us to refuse to disclose it and serve the order on us at least 3 business days before the response deadline.

We reserve the right to use, disclose, retain, share and otherwise deal with all information collected via the Arete Throws Nation Services internally or to third parties, for any lawful purpose or to prevent harm to us or others. For example, and without limitation, in our discretion we may:

• Disclose information to service providers and others in order to deal with requests and questions from you; to personalize or enhance your experience; and to assist or respond to our consultants (including auditors and lenders);

• Disclose information to government regulators, law enforcement authorities or alleged victims of identify theft, as well as voluntary disclosures; and

This Privacy Policy is not a promise that your information will never be disclosed except as described above.

Although we use what we believe to be commercially reasonable practices to protect your privacy, that does not mean, and you should not expect it to mean, that your information or communications will always be private or protected.

We generally will retain information for as long as required, allowed or for as long as we believe it useful. If you cease using the Arete Throws Nation Services, or your permission to use the Arete Throws Nation Services is terminated, we may continue to use and disclose your personal information in accordance with this Policy.
