Special situations occasionally arise when we may legally disclose your information without consent. These situations include:

  • when we suspect a child has been abused or neglected or both
  • when we suspect elder abuse
  • when we determine that you are a danger to yourself or others
  • when we are ordered by a court to disclose information.
