Meridian uses the personal information that we collect to:
We may share your information with any Meridian company to fulfill your requests, improve our services, and develop and inform you about Meridian events as well as those of any Meridian company. Additionally, we may disclose your information: (i) if we are required or permitted to do so by law or legal process; (ii) to law enforcement authorities; (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity; or (iv) in the event that all or part of Meridian or all or part of its assets, are acquired by, merged with, sold to, or otherwise disposed of to one or more third parties (including, without limitation, in the event of bankruptcy).
