5. DISCLOSURES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may share your personal information with third parties in the following instances:
When we engage service providers and third-party agents to process personal information on our behalf. When we do so, we contractually require these service providers to implement adequate technological and organizational security and privacy measures before they can receive any personal information from us and they are each contractually bound to ensure that your personal information will be appropriately protected and only used for the purposes of performing the services for us.
For legitimate purposes connected with the provision of services for clients of Silverbach, such as the engagement of an expert witness. Where information is shared with a third party for such a purpose, we will seek reasonable assurances from that third party that the personal information will be processed for legitimate reasons and appropriately protected.
In good faith in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases we reserve the right to raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us.
When we believe it is appropriate to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal or suspected illegal activities or attempted or actual breaches of our security; to protect and defend the rights, property, or safety of Silverbach, our clients, or others; and in connection with our Terms of Service and other agreements.
In connection with an entity transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, and then under reasonable assurances of maintaining confidentiality, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.
We also may share aggregate or anonymous information with third parties, including investors, lenders and of counsel attorneys, but always subject to reasonable assurances that confidentiality will be maintained. Aggregate or anonymous information does not contain any personal information, and its use and disclosure is not subject to the terms of this Policy.

We make reasonable efforts to restrict access to personal information to employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, or improve our Programs and services. We subject our employees and our third-party contractors and agents to contractual controls to ensure that they apply suitable protections to any personal information they access or receive from us and are further bound to reasonable efforts to maintain confidentiality.
