We recognize that you entrust personal data to us, and we wish to assure you that we take seriously our responsibilities in protecting and safeguarding the same.
This Privacy and Data Security Policy (“Policy”) describes how we process personal data that we collect on this website or that is otherwise provided to us by the users. This Policy may be updated at any time. Such updates will be effective from the date of the uploading of the revised Policy to the website or its communication to you. Please ensure that you regularly read the latest version of this Policy.
We (may) collect personal data about you when you use this website, or when you apply for or use other services offered by IAVE, in the following ways:
Personal data collected about you in accordance with Section “Collection of personal data” above may be used to verify your identity and eligibility, to provide information to you in your field of interest that we believe may be of interest to you, to record your interest in services that we offer, and to respond properly to your requests for information.
Furthermore, we may use such personal data to contact you in order to announce news, new services or events (including by way of telephone, e-mail, SMS, or fax), for service improvement studies or for internal research.
IAVE may use the personal data stored about you jointly with its national member societies, other closely affiliated organizations or event/business partners. In cases where we believe that additional services may be of interest to you, we may share your personal data with business partners of IAVE to the extent permitted by and in accordance with the applicable law. We may also disclose this information to firms that perform services on our behalf to the extent permitted by applicable law. These service providers are required to provide for adequate protection of your personal data and to use it only for the purposes set out in this Policy.
IAVE may, in accordance with the respective requirements under the applicable law and solely for the purpose mentioned in this Policy, transfer your personal data to other jurisdictions. Except for the purposes set out in this Policy, we do not sell, rent or otherwise disclose to any third party any personal data about the Users, except with such person’s consent or as otherwise permitted or required by law.
We will store your personal data, in accordance with the applicable law, for so long as such data is needed for the purposes set out in this Policy.
We restrict access to personal data we store about you to those employees or other parties who need access to such data in order to provide services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal data, including firewalls, individual passwords and encryption and authentication technology, and take all other necessary and adequate administrative, technical, personnel, and physical measures to safeguard the same against loss, theft, unauthorized use, disclosure, or modification and to ensure its integrity.
Please note, however, that data transported over an open network, such as the Internet or e-mail, may be accessible to anybody. IAVE cannot guarantee, and is not responsible for, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted via such open networks. When disclosing any personal data via an open network, you should remain mindful of the fact that it is potentially accessible to others, and consequently, can be collected and used by others without your consent. In particular, while individual data packets are often encrypted, the names of the sender and recipient are not.
Even if both the sender and recipient are located in the same country data may also be transmitted via such networks to other countries regularly and without controls, including countries that do not afford the same level of data protection as your country of domicile.
Your data may be lost during transmission or may be accessed by unauthorized parties. We do not accept any liability for direct or indirect losses as regards the security of your data during its transfer via Internet. Please use other means of communication if you think this is necessary or prudent for security reasons.
Upon written request to [email protected], IAVE will notify you of all the personal data it stores about you. You may also request that any incorrect or incomplete personal data stored about you be corrected or that the personal data hold stored about you be deleted.
