1. How We Use Information We Gather
We and others acting on our behalf may use the information that we gather to operate our business, including our Site, as described below:
Operate and Support our Site and Services. We use the information we gather to operate our Site and our services. For example, we may use the information that we collect or receive:
- To present our Site and its contents to you;
- To provide you with information, products, or services that you request from us (including but not limited to educational content);
- To fulfill any other purpose for which you provide it;

- In any other way, we may describe when you provide the information.
Advertising and Promotions. We may use the information we gather to offer, provide, or personalize products and services from us. We also may use the information we have collected to display advertisements to our advertisers’ target audiences.
Other Contacts. We may contact you by telephone or using the additional contact information we may have for you, as permitted by law. For example, we may use the information we gather to notify users about service availability, temporary or permanent changes to the Site, our services, or changes to our agreements, policies, or this Notice.
Usage Data. Usage Data is collected for statistical purposes to monitor and analyze the Site’s use and improve the Site’s functionality. By way of example only, Sosco Paving may use software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of our Site, what information is of most and slightest interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.
Other Information. Your IP address is used to help identify you and gather broad demographic information. In addition, Sosco Paving may use your IP address to help protect ourselves and our partners from fraud. Sosco Paving also logs IP server addresses and catalogs traffic patterns through the Sites for system administration. However, Sosco Paving does not link this information to users’ Personal Information.
Consent. We may use the information we gather for other purposes with individual consent.
2. How We May Share Information
We share information to support the purposes for which we may use information as described or permitted by this Notice. For example, we may share information we gather in the following ways:
Affiliates and Business Partners: Sosco Paving may share Personal Information with our affiliates and contracted business partners that are directly involved in the sale, distribution, transmission, operation, maintenance, analysis, and support of the Site on our behalf. Suppose these contracted business partners do access any Personal Information. In that case, it is only so that they may perform their duties on our behalf. Therefore, according to this Notice, Sosco Paving will require those affiliates and business partners to maintain and keep confidential such Personal Information.
Service Providers. We may share information with third-party service providers who help us operate our Site or provide services on our behalf. These service providers include analytics companies and advertising networks that provide Data Technologies on our Site.
Business Transfer. As Sosco Paving continues to develop our business, Sosco Paving may sell or buy assets. In such transactions, customer information is generally a transferred business asset. Thus, if Sosco Paving sells substantially all of its assets or is acquired by another entity, customer information may be one of the transferred assets. You agree that you consent to such transfer.
