SER values individual privacy and we want to give our website visitors the opportunity to know what information we collect about them and how they can limit the use of personally identifiable information beyond the purposes for which they first provided it. At all times, however, SER reserves the right to disclose information where required by law or to comply with valid legal process (such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order), to protect SER’s rights or property, including without limitation in the event of a transfer of control of SER or substantially all of its assets, or during emergencies or when safety is at risk.

We reserve the right at any time and without notice to change this Privacy Policy simply by posting such changes on our website. Any such changes will be effective immediately upon posting. The date of the last revision will be indicated by the “Last Updated” date at the bottom of this page.
