Also, CMA may disclose any information if required to do so through the process of law, including, but not limited to, any request by any agency of the Government or through judicial or quasi-judicial order.

9. Rights of User

As required by law, CMA will provide upon request by User:

  1. confirmation whether CMA is processing or has processed personal data of User;
  2. a brief summary of the personal data of User being processed or that has been processed by CMA;
