In addition, we may disclose your PII in response to legal process – for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or request from a law enforcement agency. We may also disclose PII if, in our sole discretion, such disclosure is required to protect the interests and safety of SSM and other users of the Website.

We may disclose the aggregated and passive information that we collect about Website users for any purpose, including for tailored advertising. This aggregated and passive information does not include PII, but may be used by us or our partners to deliver advertising that is determined to relate to your interests, control the number of times you see a particular advertisement, and measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign.
If you do not want to receive tailored advertisements, you may set your browser to not accept cookies. Even if you disable cookies, the Website will still contain advertising; however, it will not be tailored to your interests.Security

However, we cannot guarantee the security of your information. We have no control over the Internet and third party networks, and there is no guarantee of absolute security of information that is transmitted or accessible via the Internet. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of the Website at any time.
