Transferring personal data from the EU to Australia

The ASIS Australian chapters are located in Australia. Information we collect from you will be processed in Australia. Australia has not sought nor received a finding of “adequacy” from the European Union under Article 45 of the GDPR. The ASIS Australian chapters rely on derogations for specific situations as set forth in Article 49 of the GDPR. In particular, ASIS collects and transfers to Australia personal data only: with your consent; to perform a contract with you; or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest of the ASIS Australian chapters in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms. The ASIS Australian chapters endeavour to apply suitable safeguards to protect the privacy and security of your personal data and to use it only consistent with your relationship with the ASIS Australian chapters and the practices described in the Privacy Policy. The ASIS Australian chapters also enters into data processing agreements and model clauses with its vendors whenever feasible and appropriate. The ASIS Australian chapters also minimizes the risk to your rights and freedoms by not collecting or storing sensitive personal information about you. Where we collect personal information within the European Economic Area (EEA), we have taken steps to ensure that the personal information is handled in compliance with European data protection and privacy legislation.

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.
