Here we describe the practices we follow to respect the privacy of all visitors to Our Site. At SAC, we have focused on implementing fair information practices that are designed to protect your privacy. We believe that everyone benefits from the free flow of information when that information is gathered and used responsibly.
If you have questions or you do not feel that your concerns have been addressed in our privacy statement, contact us.
Registration is not required for you to use SAC website. If you are merely a visitor, we do not collect any personal information about you. However, there may be circumstances in which you choose to register for our services.
Sensitive personal data
SAC does not intentionally collect any sensitive information via our website. SAC works to protect the confidentiality and security of such information it obtains in the course of business. Access to such information is limited and policies and procedures are in place designed to safeguard the information from loss, misuse and improper disclosure.
We only collect identifiable personal data or information that is specifically and voluntarily provided by a visitor to our website. We receive limited identifiable information, such as name, title, company address, email address, and telephone and fax numbers, from website visitors. Typically, identifying information is collected to:
- Register for certain areas of the site
- Enquire for further information
- Distribute requested reference materials
- Submit curriculum vitae
Use of data
When a visitor provides personal data to us, we will use it for the purposes for which it was provided to us as stated at the point of collection (or as is obvious from the context of collection). Examples of the types of use are given in the ‘data collection’ section above. We may also use your data to contact you with information about SAC's business, services and events, and other information which may be of interest to you.
The personal data you submit to us will only be retained for as long as is required for the purposes for which it was collected or as required by law.
For example, contact information about visitors (such as information generated though registration for access to areas on the site) will be kept as long as the information is required to completely service the contact request or until a user requests that we delete that information. Mailing list information, discussion posts and email are kept for only the period of time considered reasonable to facilitate the visitor’s requests.
Social Media Platforms
You may wish to participate in the various blogs, forums, wikis and other social media platforms hosted by SAC which we make available to you. The main aim of these Social Media Platforms is to facilitate and allow you to share content. However, SAC cannot be held responsible if you share personal information on Social Media Platforms that is subsequently used, misused or otherwise appropriated by another user.
A link to a third party’s website should not be construed as an endorsement by either SAC or that third party of the other or its products and services. SAC makes no representations or warranties regarding how user data is stored or used on third-party servers.
This privacy statement is not intended for use by children. We understand the importance of protecting children's information, especially in an online environment, and we do not knowingly collect or maintain information about children.
Changes to this policy
SAC may change this policy statement as needed. If changes to the statement are made, please note that it may take up to 30 business days before new privacy practices are implemented. Check this page periodically if you would like to monitor changes.
