Corporate transactions

In the event of a sale, amalgamation, re-organization, transfer or financing of parts of some or all of Rise Market’s business ("Transaction"), your personal information may be disclosed to an acquiring organization either as part of due diligence or on completion of the Transaction.

Disclosure related to Rise Market Terms of Use
