    1. Purposes for collecting and handling personal information

      The Company collects, stores, uses and discloses personal information to provide its services and conduct its operations. The Company’s mission is to encourage business-to-business networking within Australia and bilateral trade between Australia and Israel.

      For example, the purposes for which the Company collects, stores, uses and discloses personal information include to:
      • arrange and conduct conferences, workshops and other events
      • develop and improve the Company’s events and other services
      • facilitate business networking and opportunities for collaboration
      • communicate with individuals about events, offers and other activities
      • understand and respond to the interests, preferences and needs of individuals and other stakeholders
      • protect the safety and security of staff, members, event attendees, third parties and facilities
      • comply with legal obligations and defend and exercise legal rights
      • recruit, train and manage staff
      • maintain and update records held by the Company.

      The Company may be limited in its ability to do these things without personal information, for example we may not be able to communicate with individuals or provide the full range of the Company’s services or website features.

      Any individual that does not want their personal information to be used or disclosed for the purposes of business opportunities and promotional communications may contact the Company with their request.

 

    1.  Sharing personal information

      For the purpose described above, personal information may be shared with:
      • other AICC entities
      • service providers – e.g. providers of IT, event support, human resources, delivery, information broking, research, marketing, payment, investigation and insurance services
      • professional advisers – e.g. lawyers, accountants and consultants
      • partner organisations that collaborate with the Company in relation to events and other activities
      • other individuals and businesses for networking purposes – e.g. where the Company considers there is a reasonable opportunity for a business relationship
      • government and law enforcement agencies – e.g. in connection with lawful information requests
      • representatives of the individual.

      Third parties that personal information is shared with may be located in Israel and other countries. These parties will often be subject to obligations to protect the personal information they have access too, but the Company will not necessarily ensure that they meet the specific requirements of Australian privacy laws.

      The Company uses tracking technologies such as cookies or web beacons to make use of the website and services as convenient as possible. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to a computer’s hard disk for record keeping purposes. Most web browsers are set to accept tracking technologies such as cookies or web beacons. These tracking technologies do not by themselves personally identify users, although they do identify a user’s browser, and can in some cases be combined with other personal information which may allow a user to be identified.The Company’s website may contain links to third party websites. The Company is not responsible for the privacy practices of those third parties and individuals should review their privacy policies.

    1. Storing and protecting personal information

      The Company stores personal information in hard copy and electronic formats, both using its own facilities and with the assistance of service providers. In either case, the Company takes reasonable technical and organizational measures to protect the security of that information. The measures we adopt in different circumstances include system access controls, encryption, contractual protections and secure premises.

      Unfortunately it is not possible to guarantee complete data security, and the Company recommends that individuals familiarise themselves with steps they can take to protect the security of their own personal information, for example using strong passwords.

 

    1. Individuals’ rights of access and updating

      Individuals can contact the Company to request to access or review the personal information that may be recorded about them by the Company. Please contact the Company using the details under ‘Further queries’ below. Providing specific details about the information sought can help the Company to fulfil these requests. Where the Company has a lawful basis to decline a request, it will communicate this to the applicant.
