For example, we use data about the connections you make, the choices and settings you make, and what you share and do on and off our Products to personalize your experience.

Connecting you with people and organizations of interest:

we help you find and connect with people, groups, companies, organizations, and others of interest to you in the SEDEI Products you use. We use the data to make suggestions to you and others (e.g. groups to join, events to attend, eGazette Pages to follow or message, shows to watch, and people you might want to hang out with friendship). Stronger connections improve communities, and we believe our services are most useful when they connect people to other people, groups and organizations of interest.

Possibility to express oneself and communicate in relation to the user's topics of interest:

eGazette offers many ways to express yourself and to communicate with friends, family and others on topics that interest you: for example, share status updates, photos, videos and stories about the SEDEI Products in use (consistent with your settings) , send messages, make calls or video calls with a friend or with several people, create events or groups and add content to your profile; furthermore, it is possible to access insights relating to people's interactions with user content. We have also developed (and continue to explore) new ways to leverage technology, such as augmented reality and 360° video to create and share more expressive and engaging content about SEDEI Products.

Discovery of content, products and services vices that may be of interest to the user:

we show you personalized ads, offers, and other sponsored or commercial content that enables you to discover content, products, and services offered by various companies and organizations that use eGazettes and other SEDEI Products. This is explained in more detail in Section 2.

Promoting the safety, security and integrity of our services, combating harmful behavior, and keeping our user community safe:

People create communities on SEDEI Products only if they feel safe and protected. We are committed to ensuring the protection (including availability, authenticity, integrity and confidentiality) of our Products and services. We employ dedicated teams around the world, work with partners, external service providers and other relevant entities, develop advanced technical systems to detect potential misuse of our Products, harmful behavior towards others and situations where we may be able to help to support or protect our community, including to respond to user reports in the event of a potential violation. If we become aware of any such content or conduct, we will take appropriate action: notifying you, offering help, removing content, removing or limiting access to certain features, disabling an account, or contacting law enforcement. We share data with other SEDEI companies when we detect misuse or harmful behavior in the use of our Products or to ensure the safety of the SEDEI Products, users and the community. For example, we share information with SEDEI companies that provide financial products and services to help them promote safety, security and integrity and comply with applicable laws. SEDEI may access, store, use and share information collected about you if it believes in good faith that the law requires or permits it. For more information, the user can consult our Privacy Policy.

SEDEI exploits and develops advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning systems and augmented reality, to allow users to use their Products safely, regardless of their physical abilities or their geographical location . For example, these technologies help visually impaired users understand the content or subject of a photo or video shared on eGazette or IMAFLO. We also build sophisticated communications networks and technologies to help more people connect to the Internet in areas with limited access. And we develop automated systems to improve our ability to protect the community and the Products.

SEDEI engages in research aimed at developing, testing and improving its Products.

Our Privacy Policy explains how data is used to support research to develop and improve our services.

Offering consistent and seamless experiences in SEDEI's companies' Products:

the Products help you find and connect with people, groups, companies, organizations and other stakeholders. We design our systems to provide you with a consistent and seamless experience across the various SEDEI Company Products that you use. For example, we use data about the people you interact with on eGazette to make it easier for you to connect with them on IMAFLO or emailBOOK, and we offer the ability to communicate with the companies you follow on eGazette via emailBOOK.

Guaranteed access to our services:

to operate our services and enable you to connect with others globally, we need to transfer, store and distribute content and data between our data centers, partners, service providers, vendors and systems around the world, including outside your country of residence. The use of this global infrastructure is necessary and essential to provide our services. This infrastructure may be owned, operated or controlled by SEDEI or its affiliated companies.


  1. How eGazette services are funded

Instead of paying for the use of the eGazette and the other products and services it offers, using i SEDEI products governed by these Terms, the user acknowledges that SEDEI may display customized advertisements and other commercial and sponsored content, the promotion of which within and outside the products of SEDEI companies takes place against payment by companies and organizations . We use your personal data (e.g. information about your activities and interests) to show you personalized ads and sponsored content that you may find relevant.

Protecting your privacy is an integral part of how our personalized ad system is designed. This means that we can show you relevant and useful ads without revealing your identity to advertisers. We do not sell your personal data. We allow advertisers to indicate things like their business goals and the type of audience they want their ads to show to (e.g. users aged 18-35 who are passionate about cycling). We then show ads to users we think may be interested.

We also provide advertisers with reports on the performance of their ads to enable them to understand how users engage with their content within and outside of SEDEI's products. For example, we provide general demographics and interest information to advertisers to help them better understand their audience, such as the fact that an advert was seen by a woman between the ages of 25 and 34 who lives in Madrid and who likes software engineering. We do not share information that directly identifies you (information such as your name or email address that can be used to contact or identify you) without your specific permission. Learn more about how SEDEI's ads work here.

We collect and use your personal data to provide you with the services described above. You can find more information about how data is collected and used in the Privacy Policy. You can control the types of ads and advertisers you see, as well as the types of information we use to determine which ads to show you.

  • comply with legal obligations for the conservation of evidence, including data stored by SEDEI companies that provide financial services and products in compliance with the record keeping obligations established by law; or
