We do not disclose any non-public personal information about our customers or former customers to anyone, unless the disclosure is necessary to service your account, and is permitted by law. For example, we may disclose non-public personal information about you in the following situations:  to carry out a transaction that you request; to provide information to companies who perform services on our behalf to help us administer your insurance policies and adjust claims; to comply with a validly issued and enforceable subpoena or summons.
