Smartcar, like many businesses, sometimes engages other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, hosting data and maintaining databases. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
Smartcar may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Smartcar, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Service or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
