SAF Consumer Privacy Principles and Practices


The privacy and protection of your personal information is a serious matter to Student Assistance Foundation (SAF) and our employees. That is why we are taking this opportunity to describe our privacy policies and the steps SAF takes to protect your personal information. It should come as no surprise that any nonpublic personal information collected by SAF is protected and treated as highly confidential.

The following Privacy Practices and Principles explain exactly how we protect your personal financial information.


We collect nonpublic personal information about you from the following sources:

  • information we receive from you on applications, forms or other correspondence
  • information we receive from a consumer reporting agency
  • information we receive from your school, your lending institution, your loan servicer and any guarantor of your loan


We do not release, disclose, or sell nonpublic personal information about current or former customers to anyone, except as permitted by law. We also maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to guard your nonpublic personal information.

SAF restricts access to your personal and account information to those employees and contracted third parties who need to know that information in order to provide products or services to you. Our employees and contracted third parties are required to keep any nonpublic personal information we provide to them confidential and secure. It is for use only for its intended purpose or for other purposes described in this notice.

Your personal information is shared with your school, the lending institution from which you borrowed, our loan servicer, credit reporting and student loan reporting agencies, and any guarantor of your loan, as permitted by law or as necessary to process and service your student loan. In addition, SAF intends to use publicly available information (name, address, telephone number, email, etc.) for the purposes of conducting their educational and charitable causes. Any such contact by SAF could occur while your loans are outstanding, as well as after they have been paid in full.

You may choose to opt out of the disclosure of your publicly available personal information for the purpose of this kind of contact by checking the box by the statement under the section entitled "Opt Out," signing the statement and returning it to SAF at the address below. You have thirty (30) days to return your opt out to SAF before any contact begins. At any time after those thirty (30) days, you still may return your opt out to SAF after which SAF will not send you any further solicitations of this type.
