  • To Improve our Website. We use information to build higher quality and more useful services by performing statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our users, and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of our Website.
  • Disclosure to SEZP Contractors. Our SEZP technology consultants, vendors, and payment processors sometimes have limited access to your information, including your mobile number, in the course of providing products or services to us. These contractors may include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, and/or content related to the operation and maintenance of the Website, or offer you educational programs and services. SEZP enters into confidentiality agreements with its technology consultants, vendors, and payment processors. Moreover, access to your information by these contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary for the consultant to perform its limited function for us.

In such cases we reserve the right to raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us. We also may share your information when we believe it is appropriate to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal or suspected illegal activities; to protect and defend the rights, property, or safety of SEZP, the Website, our users, customers, or others; and in connection with our Terms of Use and other agreements. 
  • Sale, Assignment, or Change of Control. We may transfer to another entity or its affiliates or service providers some or all information about you in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, acquisition, sale of assets or any line of business, change in ownership control, or financial transaction.
