Your personal information could be disclosed in response to inquiries or requests from governmental or regulatory authorities in the countries in which our vendors or service providers operate.



Your rights vary, depending on the applicable law. However, you have the right to update or correct the personal information that you have provided to us.

We reserve the right to modify or update this Privacy Notice at any time. If we make changes, we will post a copy of the updated Privacy Notice on our website and/or send a copy to you.
