For the same purposes the information may be shared with partners and vendors that process information on behalf of BitTorrent. BitTorrent has taken steps so that the collected information, if transferred, receives an adequate level of protection. Subject to applicable laws, BitTorrent reserves the right to cooperate with any legal process and any law enforcement or other government inquiry related to your use of this Software. This means that BitTorrent may provide documents and information relevant to a court subpoena or to a law enforcement or other government investigation.
