Sharing among Adva Mobile

believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including
but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of Adva Mobile

or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, any illegal,

conspicuous posting on this Site in the most expedient time possible and without
unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement
or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore
the reasonable integrity of the data system.

province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may
