Your employer, not Us, will decide, in accordance with company policy, when, how and to what extent any Report will be investigated or acted upon.

If your current or former employer does not have a contract with us, we may only be able to provide you with a referral to a professional (e.g., lawyers, psychologists, etc.) who may be able to provide further assistance, and We may share Your Reports with them. If your current or former employer has hired our Services, then any Report will be shared with that employer and any other business/professional entities as appropriate, such as mental health professionals and law enforcement.
5.3 As a User, you also agree We may disclose information You provided about yourself as a User to Our employees, agents, contractors and sub-contractors, and Our related and affiliated individuals and entities and their respective employees, agents, contractors and sub-contractors (which may include lawyers and law firms), in accordance with applicable law and for the limited purpose of administering the Services We provide.
