AWCI’s Privacy Policy outlines how we manage the personal information of visitors to our website. It describes what, when and how personal information is collected, and your obligations when visiting the AWCI Conference website.

What personal information does AWCI collect?
AWCI collects personal information that is voluntarily provided to us. Whenever it is reasonable and practical to do so, we only collect your personal information directly from you (or your authorised representative).

How does AWCIcollect personal information?
Whenever we collect personal information from you we will do so in a lawful and fair way. We will also advise you how and where to contact us. If we collect the information from a third party we will take reasonable steps to advise you of that collection promptly. We will tell you why we are collecting the information and the third parties to whom we usually disclose that information. If you do not wish to provide the information we request, we will tell you what impact this will have.
 
How will AWCI use collected personal information?
AWCI only uses and discloses personal information about you for the purpose for which it was disclosed to us, or for a related purpose, which would be reasonably expected without your permission. AWCI restricts access to personal information collected on our website to only those AWCI employees who need access to that information to perform and discharge their duty. AWCI does not disclose, sell or market your personal information to third parties.
 
As part of your membership service or conference registration, AWCI may use your personal information to:
  • Promote your business through various media such as websites, member directories and the like.
  • Offer you products and services relevant to your business from both AWCI and other commercial providers.
  • Send you commercial electronic messages.
Quality of Personal Information
We will take reasonable steps to ensure that the information that we collect, use and disclose is accurate, complete and up-to-date.
 
Security of Personal Information
We are committed to protecting your privacy and will take reasonable steps to ensure that the information we collect is protected from loss and misuse and from unauthorised access, modification and disclosure.
 
How can you access your personal information?
AWCI does not allow you to directly access and update your volunteered personal information. Subject to certain restrictions, you are able to have access to all of your personal information held by us. To arrange for access to your personal information, to make a complaint about the way we have handled your personal information or to ask questions or provide feedback on our Privacy Policy, please contact the site owner.
 
In certain circumstances, we may refuse access to your personal information, including:
  • Where providing access would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of others
  • The request is frivolous or vexatious
  • Information relates to legal proceedings
  • We are not permitted to disclose by law

We may charge a reasonable fee to cover our reasonable costs in supplying your personal information to you.
