This policy applies to past and present clients.

  5. We share personal information about you where required by law or regulation, as when responding to a subpoena, court order, judicial process or government regulatory authority.

Except as noted in items 3, 4, and 5 above, we do not disclose your personal information to any non-affiliated third parties without your consent unless permitted by law.
