With permission, Hephestos may share information with other professional advisors as necessary.
Hephestos may also disclose any information it considers necessary to the appropriate Authorities in emergency situations, or to report suspicious activity, or to bring action against those who may cause injury or interference with Hephestos rights, or property, or its Associates.
Amendments and queries
If a legitimate Enquirer requests access to or correction of any personal information, or wishes no further contact by Hephestos, or has reasonable concerns or complaints about the use of personal information, then the Enquirer is advised to forward a written request including contact details to Hephestos. Where appropriate, Hephestos will forward this request to its legal advisors for consideration.
Hephestos reserves the right to change its policies on commercial grounds, or as required by law.
