The type of data collected and how we use it depends on your interactions with our Site.
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.
3.1.2. Using an Online Form
We will collect your name, email address, phone number, and IP address, as well as any information you have included in the email or form. We use this data to acknowledge your request and/or reply to your questions.
3.1.3. Processing Payments
To purchase event tickets or other services and products from SAHU, we request necessary contact and billing information. This data is used only for billing purposes, to fulfill your requests, or to contact you regarding your order. The data collected from these transactions may also be used for remarketing (see Section 2.3).
3.1.4. Account Registration
In order to create an account on our Site, users must provide necessary data such as name and email address. This is only used for the purpose of providing you services, updating you about relevant news, or in accordance with a specific request from you.
4. Storage and Security of Your Information
All sensitive data you provide is encrypted via Security Socket Layer (SSL) technology. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon in your web browser or looking for “https” at the beginning of the URL address. We do our utmost to protect and safeguard your personal information. However, as no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed as completely secure, we cannot absolutely ensure or warrant the security of any data transmitted and you do so at your own risk.
4.1. Processing Sensitive Information
How we process sensitive data depends on your interactions with our Site and other services.
4.1.1. Using an Online Form
The data you provide is encrypted via Security Socket Layer (SSL) technology. The data provided is stored on our email servers and is only accessible to a limited number of employees who need access to fulfill your request. SAHU will never ask for financial or other sensitive information through these forms, and we encourage users wishing to discuss sensitive details to contact us by phone.
4.1.2. Requesting Process of Payment
No financial data is stored or processed on our servers when processing payments. All these transactions are processed through a PCI-compliant service. (The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of requirements intended to ensure that all companies that process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.)
4.1.3. Account Registration
The data you provide is encrypted via Security Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Your username and password are stored on our server. We make reasonable efforts to prevent people from accessing your password through our servers, but it is always recommended you use best practices when creating passwords.
4.2. Data Retention
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.
5. Third Party Content
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.
6. Social Media Platforms
Communication, engagement, and actions taken through external social media platforms that this Site and its owners participate in are particular to the terms, conditions, and privacy policies held by each social media platform, respectively. Users are advised to use social media platforms wisely and communicate or engage with caution regarding their own privacy and personal data. SAHU will never ask for financial or other sensitive information through social media platforms, and we encourage users wishing to discuss sensitive details to contact us by phone.
7. Your Rights
7.1. Accessing and Updating Your Data
Subject to any exemptions provided by law, you have the right to request to access, update, delete or correct your personal data. Before SAHU is able to provide you with any information, correct any inaccuracies or otherwise respond to your requests, we may ask you to verify your identity and to provide other details to help us to respond to your request. We will endeavor to respond to your request within an appropriate time frame.
7.2. Removing Your Data
You may also have the right to object to our processing of your personal data, request us to restrict the use or disclosure of your personal data, or ask for your personal data to be provided to you in a machine-readable format. Keep in mind, however, that removing data or preventing the processing of data may also prevent SAHU from being able to provide the necessary services you require. Your request and choices may be limited in certain cases – for example, if you ask to delete information which we or your administrator are permitted by law or have compelling legitimate interests to keep.
7.3. Communication Preferences
You may opt-out of receiving promotional communications from SAHU by using the ‘unsubscribe’ link within each marketing email. Even after you opt-out from receiving promotional messages from us, you will continue to receive transactional messages from us regarding our services.
8. Contacting Us
If you have a question, concern or request about privacy, confidentiality or the personal data handling practices of SAHU, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org OR Sacramento Association of Health Underwriters, PO Box 3355, Citrus Heights, CA 95611.
