Information We May Obtain About You From Other Sources
Cookies, Web Beacons and Other Technologies
Together with our third party service providers, we also may use a variety of technologies that collect certain web site usage information when you access or view any SDE Site.
(i) Cookies. A cookie is a data file placed on a computer or other device when it is used to visit any SDE Site which does not itself contain any Personal Information. Cookies enhance a User’s experience by saving him or her from having to log-in or provide information each time he or she visits a webpage and by customizing our content based on such User’s interests. Cookies may also be used to track User preferences and web pages visited while using any of our Sites. You may disable cookies using your browser’s preferences, but some features of the Sites may not function properly or may operate slowly if you disable the cookies. A User can also configure his or her browser to be alerted when a site is attempting to send a cookie and refuse the cookie.
(ii) Web Beacons. Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as “1×1 GIFs” or “clear GIFs”) may be included in our web pages and e-mail messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or e-mail can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, for example, to count visitors to the Sites, to monitor how users navigate the Sites, to count how many e-mails from the SDE Site were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.
(iii) Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Sites, such as which links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your computer from our web server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Sites, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
How We May Use Personal Information
We may use Personal Information:
(a) to communicate with you, respond to your inquiries and process any of your requests for e-mails, newsletters or other information, including verifying that your e-mail address is active and valid;
(b) to facilitate your participation in any online features on any of the Sites;
(c) to perform internal activities (for example, to administer our organization, to conduct research or to generally enhance user experience on the Sites);
(e) to protect or defend the rights, privacy, property, safety or security of any individual or entity, including us or third parties;
(f) to investigate, report, prevent or take action to protect against copyright infringement, fraud or other suspected unlawful activity; and
For the avoidance of doubt, we may disclose Personal Information if required to do so by law, by the order of any court, by the direction of any administrator or other authority, to cooperate with law enforcement or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to prevent injury or property damage — whether to you, to us or to others. We may attempt to notify you when we are making such a disclosure, but we may not do so in an emergency or when law or the order of a court or administrative authority prohibits us from doing so. As a practical matter, prior notice of the disclosure of personal information in such cases cannot be assured and should not be expected.
How and When We May Share Information
(i) Third Parties Providing Services on our Behalf. We may use third parties to perform certain services on our behalf. We may provide these service providers with access to information, including Personal Information, to carry out the services they are performing. We do not authorize these service providers to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform certain services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements. We require these service providers by contract to appropriately safeguard the privacy and security of Personal Information they process on our behalf.
Your Change Of our Use of Your Information by Opting Out or Unsubscribing

We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect Personal Information you provide against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.
While we have taken steps to protect the Personal Information we collect from you on or through any of our Sites, you should note that no Internet, wireless or mobile phone transmission is ever completely secure. In particular, unencrypted e-mail and web traffic are subject to potential interception by unauthorized third parties.
Also, you should never disclose your password to any third parties. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your Personal Information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. You may also suffer identity theft. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password. Experts recommend that you regularly change your password, that it be at least 8 elements and include both letters and numbers and that you not leave your password on documents on or around your computer.
WE DO NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT OUR SITE AND/OR OUR STORAGE FACILITIES WILL NEVER BE SUBJECT TO AN UNAUTHORIZED INTRUSION, DIVERSION, EQUIPMENT FAILURE OR OTHER ERROR. ACCORDINGLY, WE HEREBY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RESULTING FROM ANY SUCH ACTIONS OR EVENTS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY AND ALL DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING THEREFROM.
