We also may share your Personal Information with third-parties for any legitimate business purpose, or if we believe that the law requires us to do so, or to protect our property or the property of our affiliates.   Additionally, in the event of a corporate restructuring (such as a sale, merger, or other transfer of some or all of our assets), we may share your Personal Information with a third party.   We reserve the right to use or disclose any information in aggregate form, for any purpose, in our sole judgment.

OUR USE OF COOKIES AND OTHER SIMILAR TOOLS

The Website or third-party vendors that are used to operate the website may use “cookies” in order to administer the Website.  A “cookie” is a small piece of data that can be sent by a Web server to your computer, which then may be stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive.  Cookies are useful in allowing more efficient login for users, tracking transaction histories, preserving information between sessions, and improving the functionality of a website.  Some Web browsers have features that can notify you when you receive a cookie or prevent cookies from being sent.  If you disable cookies, however, you may not be able to use certain personalized functions of this Website.  To find out more about cookies and how to block them or control their use by configuring your browser, you can visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

In addition to the use of cookies, we may use certain third-party services, such as Google Analytics, to help us analyze how people use the Website.  We use this information to evaluate your and other users’ use of the Website, compile reports on Website activity, and provide other services relating to Website activity and Internet usage.

Sanchez Energy may use this information we collect from you during your visit to the Website in order to analyze trends and administers our Website. For example, we may use information related to your use of the site to determine fluctuation of visitor numbers, to diagnose problems with our servers, and to improve user web experiences.
