How Does Fiducial Share the Information It Collects?
To further specify the information that we may disclose and to whom we may disclose, we have provided the following information:
Fiducial may share personal information with the Fiducial System; all members of the Fiducial System are required to use this information only in accordance with the terms of this privacy statement.
Fiducial may engage outside companies to perform various functions, such as assisting with promotions, providing technical services for the website, performing market analysis, and so forth. To perform these functions, the companies may need to have access to the personal data we gather. Fiducial requires each company to sign a confidentiality agreement providing that they may use the personal information only for the purpose of performing these functions and not for any other purpose.
Fiducial does not sell, transfer, or disclose personal information to third party service providers except for processing purposes or in connection with a third party service provider's hosting or maintaining the Fiducial sites.
Fiducial reserves the right to use or disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any law, regulation, or legal request, to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation involving a matter of public safety, to preserve the integrity of the Fiducial sites, and to fulfill the request or respond to inquiries from the party providing the information.
Further, should Fiducial ever be involved in a transaction that involves the change of control of the company, such as a merger or acquisition of substantially all of the stock or assets, it is likely that the information that Fiducial has collected will be transferred as part of the transaction, but the acquiring party will continue to be bound by the terms of this privacy statement until further notice is given.
