Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, sw-uprising discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when sw-uprising believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of sw-uprising, third parties or the public at large.
