If BRF sells one of its divisions, your personal information may be transferred to the buyer so that the buyer can continue to provide you with information and services. BRF will also disclose your information to its affiliates and parent companies to protect its interests or the company, if it believes it is otherwise required to do so by law, if doing so will not violate any law, or if in response to requests from government authorities, to address national security situations, or when otherwise required by law.
