Student Assistance Foundation (SAF) has a responsibility to protect from disclosure to unauthorized parties the personal information of its website users. Therefore, SAF has adopted and implemented a website security policy to outline practices followed to protect the account information of its website users.
Notice and Disclosures
SAF will not sell, trade, or disclose the personal information of its website users to any unauthorized third parties.
Data Quality and Access
SAF takes all steps possible to ensure that the data on its websites is accurate. If information is found to be inaccurate, SAF will make every effort to correct the issue as quickly as possible. Any change to your user account may not be reflected on the Web site until the following business day.
While using the SAF Web site, certain information such as IP address and time spent on pages may be collected. This non-personal information is collected in order to monitor any unauthorized use or access to the SAF site. Anyone caught attempting to harm, steal information from, or otherwise damage the SAF website will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
SAF takes security very seriously and has therefore taken every precaution to secure our borrower information. In order to secure the information, SAF has implemented several security measures to prevent loss, theft, or misuse of any borrower data. When borrowers use features on the SAF Web site that involves the transfer of personal information, SAF requires that a secure connection first be established using 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology provided by VeriSign©. During a secure SSL session, data passed between users’ computers and SAF’s servers is secured through the use of public key cryptography. The users’ computers exchange key information with SAF’s computers to create private conversations that only the users’ computers and SAF’s systems understand. To benefit from this security and to use many of the features on the SAF site, users need to download a 128-bit enabled browser from Microsoft, Mozilla, or another software company.
When users send email messages to SAF, the return addresses may be used to respond to the inquiries. The content and addresses contained in the messages may be permanently recorded so they can be referenced in future communications between borrowers and SAF. Email is not a secure means of transmitting information.
