How Groupflows Shares and Discloses Information
This section describes how Groupflows may share and disclose Information, as described in the section entitled "Information Groupflows Collects and Receives" above. Customers determine their own policies and practices for the sharing and disclosure of Information to third parties. Groupflows does not control how a Customer or any third party chooses to share or disclose Information.
Third-Party Service Providers and Partners
Groupflows may engage third-party companies or individuals as service providers or business partners to process Information and support Groupflows' business. Groupflows will never sell your personal Information to third parties for any reason, including lead generation and market research. Groupflows will only share Information with third parties under the following circumstances:
- Data Storage Groupflows stores data on servers run by other companies in order to provide the Services and functionality users require. For example, Groupflows stores certain forms of Information (such as images uploaded by users) on Amazon Web Services. Information that is shared with third parties for this reason is only shared to the extent necessary to render Groupflows' Services.
- User Authentication Groupflows utilizes Third-Party security providers to authenticate user login credentials. This is done in order to maintain a higher level of user account security than Groupflows could provide unassisted. Information that is shared with third parties for this reason is only shared to the extent necessary to authenticate users' credentials when they access the Services.
- Professional Advisers Groupflows may share your Information with professional advisers acting as services providers, processors, or vendors - including lawyers, bankers, auditors, and insurers who provide consultancy, banking, legal, insurance and accounting services, and to the extent Groupflows is legally obliged to share or have a legitimate interest in sharing your Information with said advisers.

- To Enforce Groupflows' Rights, Prevent Fraud, and for Safety Groupflows may share Information to protect and defend the rights, property, or safety of Groupflows, its users, or third parties, including enforcing its contracts or policies, or in connection with investigating and preventing illegal activity, fraud, or security issues, including to prevent death or imminent bodily harm.
Groupflows takes security of data very seriously. Groupflows works hard to protect Information you provide from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access or disclosure. Given the nature of communications and information processing technology, Groupflows cannot guarantee that Information during transmission through the Internet or while stored on Groupflows' systems or otherwise in Groupflows' care will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others. When you click a link to a third-party site, you will be leaving Groupflows' site and Groupflows does not control or endorse what is on third-party sites.
Do Not Track Requests
While Groupflows values user privacy, Groupflows does not currently respond to DNT browser requests. Groupflows already limits the data it collects to the minimum amount necessary to provide the Services effectively, and all analytics data associated with Groupflows is anonymized by design.
