Ltd. (as indicated above) before the user information is released to the law enforcement agencies. We encourage law enforcement agencies to notarize the formal request to help us verify its authenticity.

The formal request should: (a) identify the LIKE ID or UID of requested account, (b) identify the information requested, (c) indicate the purpose of the request or indicate that the purpose is confidential; and (d) state the legal basis for the request.
