This Policy is intended to provide an overview of our policies for handling your personal information by Team AVCon Incorporated (“Team AVCon”). For the Act and the Policy, your personal information is any information about you that may reasonably ascertain your identity. This Policy covers most personal information collected by Team AVCon, but it is not exhaustive. If you would like to inquire further about managing your personal information, please contact Team AVCon at [email protected].
How Team AVCon Collects, Holds, Uses and Discloses Personal Information
Team AVCon limits the personal information it collects to information necessary for providing or promoting membership, products, and services to you. Team AVCon nearly always collects personal information directly from you, including from membership application forms, entry into promotions, surveys, mailing lists, websites and registration forms, as well as through communication with you.
Where personal information is not provided, Team AVCon may not be able to provide you with products or services.
Team AVCon handles personal information carefully. A specialist third party may store your personal information at an off-site location, or Team AVCon may store it in a secure location. Team AVCon will take reasonable measures to ensure that your personal information is stored securely and ensure that your personal information is not misplaced or misused and that unauthorised access to, modification of, or disclosure of your personal information does not occur.
Security measures that may be employed from time to time may include:
- Password protection of information stored in computer records;
- Restricted access to certain information, to ensure that only authorised individuals can view this information, and only for authorised purposes;
- Encryption of personal information and AVCon databases;
- Network and computer security;
- Physical document security, including locked offices, filing cabinets and archives; and
- Periodic secure destruction of the information on the database ensures that your personal information will not be stored indefinitely.
Team AVCon reserves the right to refuse to provide you with further information about security procedures if doing so may compromise those procedures.
Use and Disclosure
Team AVCon will generally only use or disclose your personal information for the purpose for which it was collected, with your consent and/or for related purposes that Team AVCon considers are within your reasonable expectations. Team AVCon does not otherwise disclose your information to third party organisations for any purpose, including marketing or promotional purposes, without your consent.
Team AVCon will seek your consent before using or disclosing your personal information for any other purpose (unless the use or disclosure is required or authorised by law).
Automatic Server Logs
The web server used by Team AVCon automatically collects various items of information when you access the website, including:
- Your IP (Internet Protocol) address;
- Information about the operating system and Internet browser software you are currently using; and
- The data that you download from the websites(s) and when you download it.
Although it may be possible to identify you from this information in some circumstances, Team AVCon does not attempt to do so (unless authorised or required to do so by law). Team AVCon only uses this information for statistical analysis, system administration, and similar purposes.
Email and eForms
Team AVCon may collect personal information from you (such as your name, email address, and any other personal information you provide) if you send Team AVCon an email or if you submit information to Team AVCon using any function on its websites, such as an eForm or online forum. Team AVCon will use this personal information to contact you to respond to your message and other related purposes.
If you provide any personal information to Team AVCon via its online services (including email) or if Team AVCon provides information to you by these means, the privacy, security and integrity of this information cannot be guaranteed during its transmission unless Team AVCon has expressly indicated otherwise.
Once Team AVCon receives personal information, it will take reasonable steps to store it per the terms of this Policy so that unauthorised access, modification, disclosure, misuse and loss is limited or prevented.
Other Online Services
If any of Team AVCon’s online services (including any email messages we send to you) provide links to other online services that Team AVCon does not operate, it is not responsible for the content of those other services, and Team AVCon does not endorse the privacy practices of the organisations that operate those other services.
Complaints, Concerns or Further Information
If you believe that a breach of your privacy has occurred or have any other concerns surrounding privacy, we encourage you to contact Team AVCon to discuss your concerns using the details provided.
