Privacy Policy

N/S SAVANNAH ASSOCIATION, Inc. is very sensitive to privacy issues on the Internet. We believe it is important that you know how we treat the information you may provide to us. Unless prominently and specifically stated otherwise, the information you provide is never shared with anyone other than N/S SAVANNAH ASSOCIATION, Inc. members. This privacy statement applies only to information collected by web addresses in the domain, hereafter referred to collectively as NSSA.

How We Gather Information

If you download information from us, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our download request form. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, and address). We may use the mailing address to occasionally send you updates on our events or newsletters . You may opt-out of our mailings at any time.

Log Files

As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.


A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a users computer for record-keeping purposes. We do not use cookies on this site as of Dec. 2009. However, NSSA may use both session ID cookies and/or persistent cookies in the future. We may use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browsers help file.

How We Protect Your Personal Information

NSSA safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. Likewise, we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters, numbers and symbols, and make sure you use a secure browser.

The NSSA website uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is required. When entering personal information, we strongly recommend an SSL-enabled web browser. Web browsers developed after Internet Explorer 3 and Netscape 3 use SSL version 3. (For the best experience at the SANS web site, recommend using Netscape 6, IE 5, or better browsers.) This protects the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it is transmitted over the Internet.
