10.6 Subject to Section 3.4, Togetherall will provide aggregated (anonymized) data to the Customer about the access and usage of the Support Network by the relevant Users in the context of the Management Services, but Togetherall will not share any Personal Data of any User with the Customer unless this is for the purpose of the Agreement, or as required by applicable law.
