It has been found out by many studies that saliva does not transmit AIDS because the amount of HIV in it is very low. Therefore, there is no great danger even if it mixes with the blood of healthy individuals.
However, if the saliva has visible traces of blood, for example from bleeding gums etc then you should be cautious about it and should not allow it to come into contact with another person's blood. It is the same with biting. If while biting there is a wound in the mouth that bleeds, then probably you should get an anti HIV injection from a hospital as soon as possible after being bitten. Otherwise biting isn't much of a danger either.
