What information do we collect?
When you register for an account and/or a conference, we ask for information such as your
name, title, organization, phone number, and email address. This allows us to contact you, update your profile, and/or identify your professional affiliations as they might relate to SACES business.
Where is this information stored?
Information we collect is stored on computer servers that we use to operate our sites. Our website provider, Wild Apricot, Inc. is a third-party service where we store our database information. These servers may be located outside of U.S., or the information may pass through jurisdictions outside of U.S. in the course of the operation or maintenance of the sites. In addition, the American Counseling Association (ACA), and Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (ACES) maintain a list of SACES members; membership dues and updates will be processed through ACA beginning August 1, 2016.
Why do we collect this information?
The personal information we collect is used to deliver our services as well as for billing, identification and authentication, general operation and improvement of our association, and to respond to inquiries.
It is not used, shared with or sold to other organizations, except:
to our service providers, as required to operate our sites and provide the requested products or services
to the applicable owner of the account when requested
to law enforcement agencies, in emergencies, for internal security matters, or where required by court order or search warrant
when we have your permission.
We may also record your computer's IP address and browser details for a variety of reasons, including:
to collect usage information
to fight spam
to troubleshooting geographically-localized access problems
to share with financial institutions or law enforcement authorities if we detect or are notified of fraudulent credit card use
What happens to this information when an account is cancelled?
If your account is closed by you or terminated by SACES, we may keep a copy of your content for archival purposes in the event you wish to reactivate your account.
A cookie is a small amount of data – typically stored as text file – that is placed on your computer or other device when you visit a particular website. Cookies do not store personal information about you, just information identifying your device.

The security of your personal information is important to us. Wild Apricot has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. They follow generally accepted industry practices to protect the personal information submitted through the website, both during transmission and once they receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while they strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, they cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our site, you can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may keep your account information current by maintaining your ACA profile; after August 1, 2016 our updated membership data will come directly from them. You may keep your web account information updated by visiting your SACES profile. If you wish to change or update any of your personal information and are unable to do so, please contact the SACES Membership Committee Chair, Cheryl Wolf, at Cherylpwolf@gmail.com.
