Privacy Policy


At SVEC, your privacy is important to us. This privacy policy describes the fair information practices that govern the collection, maintenance, use and disclosure of personal information on the SVEC website.

Information We Gather via Online Forms and Email
We do not collect personally identifiable information about you (such as your name, address or telephone number) unless you voluntarily provide it to us via one of our online forms. We take reasonable steps to protect personally identifiable information as you transmit it to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever completely secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure. If an email or online form is submitted, your information may be shared among SVEC staff and others as necessary to respond to your request. Routine email sent to us through this website or otherwise is not necessarily secure against interception. If your communication contains personal information you consider sensitive, you may not want to use email.

Uses and Disclosures
When you visit our web site, our computers may automatically collect some non-identifying information about your visit. This information can include time you spent on the site, number of pages you viewed, type of browser used or your computer's operating system. We reserve the right to use information we gather for our internal business or marketing uses, but we will not sell or otherwise divulge such information to third parties. 

We could be required to disclose this information in response to valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order.

Links to Other Sites
This site may contain links or references to other web sites to which this privacy policy does not apply. We encourage you to read the privacy policy of every web site you visit.

Our web site also uses first-party "cookies," a technology that installs information on a web site user's computer to permit the web site to recognize future visits using that computer. On the Internet, a cookie is a piece of information that a website transfers to a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. Cookies enhance the convenience and use of the web site. You may choose to decline cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may affect your use of the web site and your ability to access certain features of the web site. We do not store users’ personal information.
