Like most website operators, SAE Engineering collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. SAE Engineering's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SAE Engineering's visitors use the Website.
The Website is not intended for or directed to persons under the age of 13, and we will not knowingly collect information from such persons. Any person who provides information to us through registration or in any other manner on the Website represents to SAE Engineering that they are 13 years of age or older. If we learn that a child under 13 has submitted personal information to us, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible.
Certain visitors to the Website choose to interact with SAE Engineering in ways that require SAE Engineering to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SAE Engineering gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for the SAE Engineering Community to provide a username, email address and other information including main area of specialty and name of employer. SAE Engineering may ask for payment information, including credit card information, in connection with purchases made on the Website. In each case, SAE Engineering collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SAE Engineering. SAE Engineering does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Website-related activities. SAE Engineering reserves the right to use personally-identifying information for marketing activities related to users. SAE Engineering will never sell, rent or provide user information to other vendors or other companies that seek to market or sell products by using such user information.
SAE Engineering may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, SAE Engineering may monitor the most popular content on the Website or report the most popular discussion groups in the SAE Engineering Community. However, SAE Engineering does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
SAE Engineering discloses potentially personally-identifying information to those of its employees, service providers, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on SAE Engineering's behalf or to provide services available on or through the Website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, service providers, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the Website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. SAE Engineering discloses potentially personally-identifying information when required to do so by law, or when SAE Engineering believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SAE Engineering, third parties or the public at large. Additionally, SAE Engineering may disclose potentially personally-identifying information in connection with a sale or merger with another entity or if SAE Engineering should ever file for bankruptcy or have its assets sold to another entity.
If you are a registered user of the Website and have supplied your email address, SAE Engineering may occasionally send you emails to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with SAE Engineering and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. SAE Engineering takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of personally-identifying information.
