Our Commitment to Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. SAS, our subsidiaries and affiliates ("SAS" or "we") are providing this notice to describe and explain our information collection practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
The Information We Collect and How We Collect It
In general, you can visit this website, and use associated SAS technologies, without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. There are times, however, when we may gather information from you. Personal information like your name, postal address and e-mail address is obtained only when voluntarily submitted. Technical information, like details about your device and IP address, may be collected by virtue of your use of certain other SAS technologies. SAS collects this information in several ways:
- Through the SAS Profile page (see below)
- Through registration, surveys and other online forms (some of which may be managed by third parties on behalf of SAS)
- As part of an ongoing sales process
- While providing technical support, consultation, live chat, or product information
- Through the process of maintaining and upgrading our products
- Through automated means such as communications protocols, e-mail communications and cookies
- Through our mobile applications (some of which may be managed by third parties on behalf of SAS)
- Through your use of social connectors and SAS-affiliated social networking areas
- Through your interest in SAS ads placed on third party sites
To provide you with timely, high-quality information, we may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your professional interests and experiences with our products or services. Providing us with this information is optional. Personal data or other data collected online may also be combined with information you provide to us through other sources such as product registration, call centers, or in conjunction with events such as trade shows, training seminars and conferences. Information that you supply will relate to the relationship that SAS has with you or your organization.
