The information collected by SageCom will only be used internally at SageCom, subject to the limited circumstances listed below. Unless you give us your express consent, SageCom will not disclose your information to third parties who want to market products to you.

Additionally SageCom may disclose this information if we, in good faith, believe that this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against individuals who may be a threat to public safety or interfering with SageCom network, services or our customers.
If SageCom decides to stop providing Service or sell or transfer parts of its business to unaffiliated companies, SageCom will provide only that portion of your Personally Identifiable Information that will allow these companies to offer you the same or similar services or as to accomplish our business objectives. Be assured that these unaffiliated companies will be bound by confidentiality requirements and will be obligated to keep SageCom customer information confidential.
