SYCS will not retain your personal information longer than necessary. We will hold onto the information you provide either while your subscription is active, or as needed to be able to provide email updates to you.
If legally required or if it is reasonably necessary to meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, or prevent fraud and abuse, we may also retain some of your information for a limited period of time as required, even after you have unsubscribed or after it is no longer needed to provide email updates to you.
SYCS will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information, gathered as a result of subscribing to the mailing list, to anyone, unless you give us your explicit permission to do so.
