For your convenience, we have provided this statement explaining our online information practices.
Collection of your personal information
In general, you are able to visit SAHGCA‘s websites without revealing who you are or any information about yourself. However, our web servers will collect information (standard information that browsers sends to every website visited) for statistical purposes, such as the number of visits, the pages viewed, your IP-address, the browser type and language, access time, etc. SAHGCA uses this information for improving its sites and services.
When visiting certain SAHGCA sites (such as the online member administration application) we ask you to consent to providing personal information, such as your email address, name, telephone number, etc. This information is required in order for us to provide you with the information and services you may request from us. This information will therefore be kept by us as long as is necessary for us to use your information as described above or to comply with any legal obligations.
At no time will credit card information, such as the Primary Account Number, Service Code and Expiration date be stored by SAHGCA. Personal information collected on SAHGCA sites and services may, in compliance with applicable laws and regulations, be stored and processed in any country in which SAHGCA maintain facilities.
Security of your personal information
SAHGCA has a number of security measures in place to protect your personal information. However, when transmitting personal information over the internet, please bear in mind that no transmission over the internet can ever be guaranteed secure. Therefore, please note that SAHGCA cannot guarantee the security of any personal information that you transfer over the internet to us.
We may also use technologies, such as cookies, to ensure the uninterrupted functioning of our services provided to you (e.g. when you log in to the member administration application). A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if preferred.
SAHGCA‘s website may contain links to other sites. Although we try to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not in any way responsible for the content of the privacy practices employed by other sites.
encourage you to periodically review this statement to know how SAHGCA is protecting your information.
