Subpoena & Court Order Policy
We are committed to protecting the privacy of our users, customers and affiliates. This Subpoena & Court Order Policy is intended to balance our legal obligations to comply with properly issued subpoenas and court orders with that commitment to privacy. We will not share customer, affiliate, or account information without the express consent of the subject of that information except under the limited circumstances required by legal process and in accordance with the following terms.

Limitations. Udo will respond to a valid U.S. subpoena submitted as described above with only the information, documents, and data that are within the scope of Udo ‘s duty to respond.

Notice to Third Parties. When Udo receives a valid civil subpoena requesting medical, financial, personal identifying, or other confidential or private information of a user, customer, affiliate or other third party, Udo will promptly notify the affected third party, via email or U.S. mail and permit that third party a reasonable opportunity to object or move to quash the subpoena. Unless the requesting party can demonstrate urgent circumstances, such notification may delay Udo’s response to the civil subpoena.
Costs. Udo will charge the person or entity submitting the civil subpoena for costs associated with subpoena compliance. Payment must be made within thirty (30) days from the date of receipt of the Udo invoice. Checks should be made out to Udo, LLC. Subpoena compliance costs are as follows:

Confidential Information. Some documents or data produced by Udo in response to a subpoena may contain confidential, trade secret, proprietary, medical, or other private information that must be protected from public disclosure. In such circumstances, Udo will designate documents CONFIDENTIAL by stamp or electronic tag. With respect to materials designated as CONFIDENTIAL:
- Access must be limited to the parties in the underlying action pursuant to which the subpoena was served, their attorneys and agents, and the court and its personnel.
- Documents must not be filed in the public record absent a reasonable attempt to ensure the filing of such documents, and any references thereto, under seal.
