2. Disclosure of Personal Information
Unless we obtain your express consent, we do not sell, rent or share your personal information to third parties except with the Fondation Jean Lapointe network or internal service providers that we use to facilitate or outsource one or more aspects of our website management. These internal service providers are subject to confidentiality agreements and other legal restrictions prohibiting them from using the information we provide them for any purpose other than to facilitate the specific activities using outsourced data, unless you have explicitly agreed otherwise or have given your permission. We may be required to provide personal information in response to an order issued by a court, required by a governmental organization by subpoena, or where it is required otherwise by law. We also reserve our right to report to law enforcement authorities any activities that we believe, in good faith, to be illegal. We may share certain personal information when we believe such communication is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property and third-party security as well as ours.

Emails are generally not a secure means of information transfer. Therefore, we cannot ensure that this information will not be lost or used fraudulently and we invite you to use an email encryption program to contact us.
