We maintain the right to preserve, share, and/or disclose information in order to properly comply with local, state, and federal laws and regulations and in order to comply with any legal requests that may arise. We do this in order to protect any actual or potential harm against other individuals, both flik and non-flik users, to address any potential illegalities (i.e. fraud), to resolve any technical or security issues, and to protect flik’s Services and property. However, flik does not have any legal obligation to, but reserves its right, to disclose any identifiable information to authorities when, at flik’s sole discretion, it feels it may need to prevent any type of harm (i.e. physical, emotional, psychological) to one’s self or others.
