There are certain emails that we may continue to send to customers, such as user-requested shipment emails.
We do not share any customer information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to properly fulfill our business obligations and for which we are responsible.
Information may be provided to third parties as required by law including such circumstances as the provision of a statute, a court order such as a search warrant or subpoena, or a warning by a law enforcement agency that delivery of a court order is imminent. In these circumstances, World Courier will:
· take any reasonable steps available to communicate to customers that their data is being transferred, unless we are precluded from doing so by law; and
· only transfer data while the provision is current, and will then stop transferring the data.
