This type of disclosure may be required as part of any legal proceedings, petition or investigation, government request, legal ruling, the enforcement of legal rights (for example, contractual terms and conditions, intellectual property rights, etc.), matters pertaining to combating money laundering, security or any other similar security or legal issue. Sharing your information in this regard is not a common occurrence, but it may happen at any time. We will attempt to limit the type and amount of information that we may have to share for legal reasons to that which is reasonably necessary, and will try to make sure that any transfer outside the European Union is done under the appropriate laws.

We can share (or receive) information concerning you, particularly your personal contact information, in the event of any assignment, acquisition, fusion, restructuring, bankruptcy or other similar circumstance involving Barrière. If such an event occurs, we will take reasonable measures to demand that your information be processed according to this Policy, unless it is impossible or prohibited to proceed accordingly, and we will try to make sure that any transfer outside the European Union is done under the appropriate laws.
