Net2Phone reserves the right to use and share personally identifiable information, of whatever
nature, to investigate and/or help prevent potentially unlawful activity that threatens either
Net2Phone, any company affiliated with Net2Phone or any third party. Moreover, Net2Phone may
disclose personally identifiable information of whatever nature upon the appropriate request of
a government agency, law enforcement, court or as otherwise required by law, whether such request
is directed to Net2Phone or to a Net2Phone supplier or vendor.
