When and how we share information with others
The ASIS Australian chapters do not sell or rent any personal information or data from our users, members, customers, partners or exhibitors.
Transferring personal data from the EU to Australia
If you are located in the EEA, you should be aware that your personal information will be transferred to Australia. In such cases, where your personal information is transferred from the EEA to Australia, we will take all reasonable steps necessary to ensure that appropriate safeguards designed to protect your personal information are implemented.
Data subject rights
- Right of access– you can write to us to ask for confirmation of what personal information we hold on you and to request a copy of that personal information. Provided we are satisfied that you are entitled to see the personal information requested and we have successfully confirmed your identity, we will provide you with your personal information subject to any exemptions that apply.
- Right of erasure– at your request we will delete your personal information from our records as far as we are required to do so. In many cases we shall use limited personal information to suppress further communications with you, rather than delete it entirely.
- Right of rectification– if you believe our records of your personal information are inaccurate, you have the right to ask for those records to be updated. You can also ask us to check the personal information we hold about you if you are unsure whether it is accurate/ up to date.
- Right to restrict processing– you have the right to ask for processing of your personal information to be restricted if there is disagreement about its accuracy or legitimate use.
- Right to object– you have the right to object to processing where we are (i) processing your personal information on the basis of the legitimate interests’ ground, (ii) using your personal information for direct marketing or (iii) using your information for statistical purposes.
- Right to data portability– to the extent required by the GDPR, where we are processing your personal information (that you have provided to us) either (i) by relying on your consent or (ii) because such processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contact, and in either case we are processing using automated means (i.e. with no human involvement), you may ask us to provide the personal information to you – or another service provider – in a machine-readable format.
- Rights related to automated decision-making– you have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing of your personal information which produces legal effects on you or similarly significantly affects you, unless such a decision (i) is necessary to enter into/ perform a contract between you and us/ another organization; (ii) is authorised by EU or Member State law to which the ASIS Australian chapters is subject (as long as that law offers you sufficient protection); or (iii) is based on your explicit consent.
We may ask you for additional information to confirm your identity and for security purposes, before disclosing personal information requested to you.
Please note that some of these rights only apply in limited circumstances. For more information, we suggest that you contact us using the methods above.
In many countries, you have a right to lodge a complaint with the appropriate data protection authority if you have concerns about how the ASIS Australian chapters process your personal data. When technically feasible, the ASIS Australian chapters will—at your request—provide your personal data to you or transmit it directly to another controller.
Reasonable access to your personal data will be provided at no cost to ASIS members, conference attendees and others upon request made to the ASIS Australian chapters at email@example.com. If access cannot be provided within a reasonable time frame, ASIS will provide you with a date when the information will be provided. If for some reason access is denied, ASIS will provide an explanation as to why access has been denied.
Security of your information
To help protect the privacy of data and personally identifiable information you transmit through use of this Site, we maintain physical, technical and administrative safeguards. We update and test our security technology on an ongoing basis. We restrict access to your personal data to those employees who need to know that information to provide benefits or services to you. In addition, we train our employees about the importance of confidentiality and maintaining the privacy and security of your information. We commit to taking appropriate disciplinary measures to enforce our employees’ privacy responsibilities.
Data storage and retention
