Privacy policy

Privacy statement

This privacy policy explains how we collect, use, share, and protect the data of visitors to the Project SADA website and other URLs and websites (hereinafter referred to collectively as “website”) managed by Project SADA and its partners (as described below). By visiting the website, you accept the practices described in this privacy policy. Project SADA recommends reading through this privacy policy carefully. “Project SADA,” “we,” and “us” refers here to Project SADA and its partners. “You,” “your,” and “user” refers to all individuals and legal entities who, for whatever reason, access the website.

What data does Project SADA collect?

Project SADA collects two types of data: (1) “communication data” consisting of personal data that you voluntarily provide, such as contact information, e-mails, or letters; and (2) “visitor data” consisting of data that is automatically collected when you visit and navigate the website (hereinafter referred to collectively as “data”).

  • Communication data
    When you communicate directly with Project SADA by phone, e-mail, or postal mail, Project SADA may collect, store, and use all the data it records for its own business purposes. Project SADA may also conduct regular surveys, usability studies, and other programs that help Project SADA improve and market its products and services. Visitors to the website may participate in these programs voluntarily and be asked for additional information, which is then also regarded as communication data, as a precondition for such participation.

    Project SADA may use this communication data to respond to your inquiries, reported problems, or questions, or to improve Project SADA’s website or product/service portfolio. Communication data may also be used to transmit information about Project SADA, its products, and other marketing or information content from Project SADA to you.
  • Visitor data
    The Project SADA website server automatically collects “visitor data” of your website activity using IP addresses (as described below) or cookies (as described below) or other standard industry methods such as domain names or pixel tags.

    Project SADA may use visitor data (including data about user behavior, user experience, user devices, and computer or Internet environment) to improve the website. An IP address is a number automatically assigned to a computer when a user accesses the Internet and is often linked to the physical location or the Internet provider from which the user accesses the Internet. An IP address is not necessarily identified with an individual.

    Cookies are data that a website transmits through a browser and saves to a hard drive so that the website will recognize the browser, collect and store user data, and occasionally track the user’s viewing habits for statistical purposes. Cookies cannot read any other data stored on the hard drive. The website uses cookies to collect visitor data in order to provide you with custom content, adapt the website to your preferences if desired, and create a superior website experience for you. You can modify your browser settings to reject cookies or be notified when cookies are used.

Does Project SADA share data?

Project SADA does not share any data with third parties or sell or lease data to third parties except where explicitly provided for in this privacy policy.

  • Service providers
    Project SADA may use the services of third parties where convenient for certain business purposes. This requires disclosure of your data. For example, Project SADA may use third parties for communication with you, to host the website and its databases, and to conduct other outsourced tasks. Project SADA requires that these third parties restrict their use of your data to the extent needed to perform the services requested of them.
  • Family of companies
    We may share all or some of your data with current or future affiliates (parent companies, subsidiaries, joint venture partners, or other partners that Project SADA controls, that Project SADA is controlled by, or that are under joint control with Project SADA). We make a good faith effort to ensure that affiliates use your data in accordance with this privacy policy. If another company acquires Project SADA, your data will be transferred to the acquiring entity according to the terms set forth under “Change of control and ownership.”
  • Partners
    Project SADA may enter into partnerships with third parties such as marketing agencies, affiliates, and other potential business partners (“partners”) that require the disclosure of user data. For example, Project SADA may notify these third parties how many users viewed and then clicked on links on the third-party websites.
  • Legal obligations of disclosure
    Project SADA reserves the right to disclose your data where required by law or if Project SADA determines in good faith that such an action is necessary by reasonable standards in order to (a) prevent litigation; (b) satisfy claims brought against Project SADA; (c) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Project SADA, its employees, its customers, or the public; or (d) notify law enforcement authorities of all activities that we determine in good faith to be illegal. This includes sharing information with third parties to protect against fraud and reduce credit risk.
  • Linked websites
    The Project SADA website may contain links to other websites whether or not we have any affiliation with such websites. Project SADA is not responsible for the content or data privacy policies of these other websites. Project SADA encourages you to read the data privacy policies published on these third-party websites.

How does Project SADA protect my data?

Project SADA takes appropriate measures to protect all data against unauthorized access, to ensure the accuracy of data, and to use data correctly. Project SADA uses security systems to protect such data. No company is able to entirely eliminate security risks and other risks associated with the possession of data, however, and Project SADA does not guarantee that the data you provide will not be accessed by unauthorized parties.

You hereby acknowledge that Project SADA is not responsible for the interception of data transmitted over the Internet and indemnify us from liability for all claims resulting from unauthorized use of intercepted data.

Terms of this privacy policy; changes

Project SADA reserves the right to modify this privacy policy at its sole discretion. If this policy is revised, we will post the revised version on the website showing all changes and publish a message on the website announcing the change. By continuing to use the website after the revised version of this privacy policy has been posted, you agree to the changes. If you do not accept this privacy policy or its revisions, you may not use the website.
