VIOLATIONS OF THESE TERMS OF USE

Own The Boardroom may disclose any information we have about you (including your identity) if we determine that such disclosure is necessary in connection with an investigation or complaint regarding your use of the Site, or to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with OTB’s rights or property, or the rights or property of visitors to or users of the Site.  OTB reserves the right at all times to disclose any information that Own The Boardroom deems reasonably necessary to (a) comply with any applicable law, legal process, or government request, (b) enforce these Terms of Use, (c) respond to claims or protect the rights of others, (d) protect the rights, property or personal safety of OTB, its employees, users of or visitors to the Site.
