Sasian's Privacy Statement

    Sasian (Sibling Abuse Survivors' Information & Advocacy Network) developed this privacy statement to demonstrate our commitment to privacy by informing site visitors of Sasian's data collection and storage practices, and guidelines for use of visitor data.

User Tracking and Data Capture Practices

    Our server collects aggregate user information site-wide, including anonymous site statistics, such as the number of views of each page. We log domain names and/or IP addresses of visitors (such as,,, etc.), which permits us to know 'where' visitors are from, or what access service they use, without knowing their individual identities. Because we do not require users to register with us, this "host level" tracking is our primary method for assessing traffic patterns.

    On certain pages, such as the 'Parents Guide' request, we give users the option of providing us with names, addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers, email addresses, personal information, and various other details. This more personal information is gathered only with users knowing and active permission and participation. Sasian does not use, endorse, or condone any type of  'opt out' technique.

Sasian Publications & Reprints

    The Sasian website provides forms which allow visitors to request documents by postal mail. These pages utilize perl and cgi scripting that does not collect any visitor data prior to the submission of the form. E-mail addresses, if provided by visitors, are used only to communicate with the visitor about specific request or issue. Visitors may 'opt-in' to remain on our mailing list. Unless a visitor explicitly requests to be included, their postal address, email address & other information is deleted after their request has been fulfilled. After the request is processed, the information is deleted.

Exchange of Sasian Address Lists

    Individual information about website visitors, including e-mail addresses, is never shared with third parties.

Membership Information

    Sasian does not sell, loan or rent it's our membership list to anyone.
