What information does SVAS collect from me?

Our web server automatically recognizes your domain name. Our web server does not recognize your e-mail address. Most of SVAS has been designed to not require the use of any personal identifiers (such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address). IF YOU SEND US AN E-MAIL OR SUBSCRIBE TO A NEWSLETTER, WE WILL HAVE YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS AT OUR SITE.

SVAS collects and uses certain information on its web site. This information includes your IP address, information about your browser (i.e., whether you are using Netscape, Internet Explorer, etc.), and information about your Internet Service Provider (i.e., AOL, Verizon). An IP address (Internet Protocol Address) is a unique number that is used to represent every single computer in a network. All computers on the Internet have a unique IP address. None of the foregoing information will be used by SVAS in any way, or in connection with any other information, to identify you personally.

SVAS uses the statistical information gathered about you and all of its users for internal statistical purposes only, e.g., to track where users go on the web site. This information is not linked to specifically identifiable individuals. This type of information will be used to aid SVAS in adding information to its web site that will be useful for site users and that will improve the performance of our web site.

Children's Privacy

We do not intend to collect information from children. If we learn that we inadvertently have collected personal identifying information from a child under the age of 13, we will promptly delete that data from our systems.

E-Mails

When you sign up for free Newsletter e-mails, we maintain information about your selections only for the purpose of sending you the e-mails. We do not use identifying personal information for any other purpose although it may be included in anonymous, aggregated statistical information. If you communicate with us by email you should understand that email is not secure against interception. If your communication includes sensitive or confidential information, please contact us by phone or mail.

Instructions for unsubscribing from e-mails are located at the bottom of each e-mail. Click the link given and request to be removed from our list.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

Our contact forms serve as a way for us to collect information and help visitors with information. If you contact us through our online contact form we will have any information you have submitted in our records for future use and correspondence. If you want us to remove your information from our system you can use that same form with the request and it will no longer be saved.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select "Remember Me", your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Disclosure of Your Information

All of the information you choose to provide us is absolutely confidential and voluntary. We will never give, sell, rent or reveal your name or address (including e-mail) to any outside party without your express consent. SVAS will not disclose your personally identifiable information to independent third parties other than those who help us operate our site, (such as an independent third party who might help us deliver our newsletters).

When you sign up for these member services we will share your name, contact information or other information necessary for the third party to provide the services. These independent third parties will only use your information to provide the designated service, and will handle your information in accordance with this The SVAS Privacy Policy.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Security measures

SVAS takes reasonable precautions to protect your personally identifiable information. When users submit personally identifiable information, it is protected both on-line and off-line.

Notification of Changes

We will prominently post any significant changes we make to our Privacy Policy. SVAS will use the information collected from you in accordance with the privacy policy in effect when the information was collected.

Links to Other Web Sites

This site contains links to other sites. SVAS is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites.

Correcting and updating information

If, at any time, a correction needs to be made to existing personal information that you have voluntarily provided to the web site, users may email the owner using our contact form and request that the information be changed or deleted.

This privacy policy is not intended to and does not create any contractual or legal rights in or on behalf of any party.
