However, there may be circumstances in which you choose to register to ongoing updates from Ziyasiza. In these cases, Ziyasiza may contact registrants to invite them to special events, provide them with information about our services, publications and products, or for other marketing purposes. Information collected at registration is protected using industry-standard encryption technology as it is sent over the Internet. For example, you may choose to register for:

1. Email alerts
