Disclosure or use of your information

We will not exchange or sell or otherwise distribute your personal information outside the Marsh McLennan without your consent except in accordance with your instructions (including to provide the services you have contracted with us to provide to you) or as identified in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is not applicable to personal information that is already in the public domain. Where we have personal information received independently from a third party, even where this is on the understanding that the individuals to whom the personal information relates have been informed of the reason(s) for obtaining the personal information and the fact that it may be disclosed to third parties such as Marsh McLennan, the terms of this Privacy Policy shall apply to such personal information.

We may use or distribute your personal information to the extent required by law, and as described below:

(i) Providing Services. In the normal course of performing services for our clients, personal information may be shared within Marsh McLennan for research and statistical purposes, system administration and crime prevention or detection.

We sometimes contract with other companies and individuals to perform functions or services on our behalf, such as hosting this Site, sending e-mail messages and making phone calls on our behalf.

(iv) Business Transfers. As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy assets. In such transactions, user information, including personal information, generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, if either Marsh itself or substantially all of Marsh assets were acquired, your personal information may be one of the transferred assets. Therefore, we may disclose and/or transfer your personal information to a third party purchaser in these circumstances.

(v) Legal Matters. Marsh may preserve and has the right to disclose without your prior permission any personal information about you or your use of this Site if Marsh has a good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) protect and defend the rights, property or safety of Marsh McLennan, employees, other users of this Site, or the public; (b) enforce the terms and conditions that apply to use of this Site; or (c) respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third-parties.
