SRAS Privacy Policy

Updated: September 3, 2007

SRAS believes that your information belongs to you and you alone. Within this page, we detail the reasons why we ask you for information, what we do to keep your information secure, and how we use your information.

What Data We Collect and Why

  • SRAS collects personal information when you register on our site for our newsletter or our testing services. This is necessary because without an account on the SRAS database, it is impossible for us to provide these services to you.
  • SRAS also collects additional information, including passport information, from those who enroll in our programs in order to meet the needs of various governments and institutions that issue invitations, visas, university enrollment, and other services and documents.
  • SRAS uses cookies and other technologies to record how our site is used and by whom. This is done so that we can continue to develop our site and services in a way that best serves those who use them.

Use and Disclosure of Information

  • SRAS may share information with universities and government organs if those institutions require such information to provide services you have requested from us or as otherwise required by law.
  • SRAS will never share or sell information to any third party, excepting general statistics such as the number of subscribers to our newsletter or how many people attend our programs.
  • SRAS stores all information on secure servers located inside the U.S.
  • SRAS processes information on servers located inside the U.S. and in other countries.

Technical Information

  • Cookies are small packets of data, which often include an anonymous unique identifier, sent to your browser from a website you visit. They are stored on your computer’s hard drive. Nearly all websites use cookies of some sort. You can set your browser to reject cookies or store them only temporally. Most browsers are also programmed to protect your privacy by permitting a website’s access to only those cookies that website has issued, and not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
  • SRAS may set and access its own cookies on your computer. SRAS may use cookies to identify you as a repeat visitor or customer of the website, to maintain session information for users who log in to our site, and to track usage trends and patterns in order to better understand and improve areas of our website
  • An internet protocol address ("IP Address") is a number automatically assigned to your computer on connecting to the Internet. SRAS will make a record of your IP Address and may use it for administrative, security and statistical purposes.

Your Choices

  • We offer you choices regarding whether to provide information, whenever reasonably possible.
  • You may refuse to provide information and/or to refuse cookies on your browser, but some features or services will be unattainable or may not function properly because of this.
  • We make good faith efforts to provide you access to your personal information upon request and to let you correct such data if it is inaccurate and delete it if you desire, whenever reasonably possible.
