Disclosure of Your Information to Third Parties
Laws and Legal Rights.
Blue Manchu may disclose your information (including personally identifiable information) if it believes in good faith that it is required to do so in order to comply with an applicable statute, regulation, rule or law, a subpoena, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, or other valid legal process. Blue Manchu may also disclose personally identifiable information when it has reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the Terms of Service for its services, or to protect the safety and/or security of itself, its users, or the general public.

Protection of Your Information
Blue Manchu strives to provide secure transmission of your information from your computer to Blue Manchu’s servers through industry-standard techniques. For example, Blue Manchu has put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures for the purpose of safeguarding and securing the information Blue Manchu collects from its users.
You should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. There is also some risk that others could find a way to thwart security systems. As a result, while Blue Manchu strives to protect your information, Blue Manchu cannot ensure or warrant the security and privacy of any information you transmit to Blue Manchu, and you do so at your own risk.
Protecting the privacy and online experience of children is especially important to Blue Manchu. For that reason, Blue Manchu never collects or maintains personally identifiable information from any person Blue Manchu actually knows is under 13 years of age. In addition, no part of the Blue Manchu service offering is designed for or directed to anyone under 13 years of age.
Accessing and Editing Your Information
You may also opt-out from the continued use and processing by Blue Manchu of your personal data by sending Blue Manchu a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, if you do so, Blue Manchu will not be in a position to provide its products and/or services to you.
You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to Blue Manchu from Blue Manchu’s system. The need to back up Blue Manchu’s systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your personally identifiable information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for Blue Manchu to locate. Therefore, while we can respond to your request for removal by making no further use of your personal data, except as stated in this Policy or required by law, it will often remain stored or archived in our system.
