Further use and/or disclosure of your information by Third-Party Providers is not the responsibility of the Bloomberg Group.

The Bloomberg Group may also disclose your information to unaffiliated third parties if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary: (a) to comply with the law or in response to a subpoena, court order, government request, or other legal process; (b) to protect the interests, rights, safety, or property of the Bloomberg Group or others; (c) to enforce any terms of service on this Site; (d) to provide you with the services or products requested by you (including allowing a purchaser of the Bloomberg Group to continue to serve you), and to perform other activities related to such services and products, including billing and collection; (e) to provide you with information, special offers, or promotions from the Bloomberg Group to which you consented; and (f) to operate the Bloomberg Group's systems properly. The Bloomberg Group makes reasonable efforts to limit its designated service providers' disclosure of your personal information in the same manner as set forth in this paragraph.
