Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below and with subsidiaries HoorayForTheUnderdog.com controls that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.
HoorayForTheUnderdog.com will not facilitate the merging of personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information previously collected from Display Advertising features that is based on the DoubleClick cookie unless we have robust notice of, and the user's prior affirmative (i.e., opt-in) consent to, that merger.

Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that HoorayForTheUnderdog.com, Inc., or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets. Protection of HoorayForTheUnderdog.com and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of HoorayForTheUnderdog.com, our users, or others.
