If Zahnd & Kormann or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets.

If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our Terms of Use or Conditions of Sale and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Zahnd & Kormann, our customers, or others.
