We will contact you from time to time through email, notices posted on our websites or apps, internal Zome messages, and other ways through our Services, including push notifications.

We may share your information to third parties if we determine that a disclosure is required to comply with the law, protect persons from death or serious injury, or prevent fraud.

 

In the event that Zome decides to sell, buy, merge, or engage in another strategic transaction involving our business and other businesses, such transaction may involve disclosing your information. While we would seek protections for all information disclosed, the information would likely be one of the transferred assets in such a transaction.
