Your privacy is our priority. Any information provided by or collected from visitors to our website will be used only to process requests that you have given us permission to make.
We collect two types of information from users.
“Personal Information” is information that identifies you personally, such as your name, address, phone numbers, or email address. We only collect and store the Personal Information that you have shared with us. For clarity and by way of example only, we may store your name and email address so we can communicate with you.
Sharing your Personal Information with us is voluntary, and by providing this information to us you are giving consent for us to use, collect and process this Personal Data for the purposes set forth in this Policy. If you choose not to provide us with certain Personal Information, you may not be able to become a fully active SAAN member. You are welcome to opt-out or request for us to delete your Personal Data at any point by contacting us as set forth below.
“Non-Personal Information” is information that is information which does not identify you as an individual, such as demographic information, age, gender, ZIP code or other geolocation data, personal interests, and log or analytical data about your time on our website. By using our website, you grant us the right to use your Non-Personal Information for marketing and to improve the Sites.
Our website may use “cookies” and similar tracking technologies (“Cookies”) to improve the functionality and usability of the sites.
Cookies are text files sent by web servers to web browsers and are stored on the user’s computer or mobile device. If the browser is loading a page and the server requests the information stored in the cookie, the cookie is sent back to the server. Cookies contain data about a user’s activities on the website, and can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website, and to identify users returning to a website. Most browsers allow users to refuse to accept cookies. Users can also delete cookies already stored on their computers.
Disclosure of Information with Third Parties
We will not disclose your information with third parties without your written consent.
Confidentiality and Data Retention
Except as set forth in this Policy, the information that you share with us is treated as confidential. Moreover, we retain your information for the minimum amount of time necessary to provide you with the information or services that you request from us. We may include certain Personal Data for longer periods of time if necessary.
We take commercially reasonable steps to protect the Personal Information that you provide to us from misuse, disclosure or unauthorized access. We only share your Personal Data with trusted third parties who use the same level of care in processing your Personal Data. That being said, we cannot guarantee that your Personal Data will always be secure due to technology or security breaches. Should there be a data breach of which we are aware, we will inform you immediately.
We communicate with our members on a regular basis via email. For example, we may use your email address to confirm your request, to send you e-newsletters and other related communications, and to send notices and other disclosures as required by law.
