Modelo Health may access, use and preserve data to comply with law, in anticipation of litigation, for security management and investigation, or to protect the rights or property of Modelo Health or third parties, even if the data is subject to a deletion request from you. We may also provide information to law enforcement or authorities to protect the safety of users of the apps or others.
Sale, merger, or change of ownership: If Modelo Health merges with another company, or its equity securities or all or a part of its assets are sold to a third party, your personal data may be transferred to the buyer or successor entity.
