Violation of These Terms of Use

Stenograph may disclose any information we have about you (including your identity) if we determine that such disclosure is necessary in connection with any investigation or complaint regarding your use of the Site, or to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Stenograph’s rights or property, or the rights or property of visitors to or users of the Site, including Stenograph’s customers.

You acknowledge and agree that Stenograph may preserve any transmittal or communication by you with Stenograph through the Site or any service offered on or through the Site, and may also disclose such data if required to do so by law or Stenograph determines that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) comply with legal process, (2) enforce these Terms of Use, (3) respond to claims that any such data violates the rights of others, or (4) protect the rights, property or personal safety of Stenograph, its employees, users of or visitors to the Site, and the public.
