Through your submission, you also grant us the right to release your personal information when required to do so by law. For example, we may release your personal information to abide by a subpoena or other legal procedure. We exercise this option when, in good faith, we believe it is necessary to preserve our rights, to ensure the safety of you or others, to explore alleged fraud, to reply to a government or legal request, and/or in the instance that MastersInEngineering.com merges, acquisitions or sells some or all of its assets to a third party.
