Management of Personal Information
The Australian Association of Angel Investors Limited (AAAI) is committed to protecting the privacy of members and non-members and ensuring the security of personal information maintained within the organisation. The AAAI seeks to follow the National Privacy Principles (Privacy Act 1988) in the management of personal information. The AAAI strives for best practice in the management of personal information whilst conducting organisational activities in such a way as to better serve the membership and the community.
Under the Privacy Act, personal information means information or an opinion, true or false and whether recorded in a material form or not, about an individual whose identity can be reasonably ascertained from that information or opinion.
This policy is designed to help members and non-members better understand the following matters:
1. What personal information AAAI collects and how it is collected:
The AAAI receives information including name, address, telephone, email and facsimile contact details, group affiliation and profile information from members and non-members on membership, membership renewal, or other application forms, survey forms, order and booking forms.
The AAAI receives information from browsers when you visit our website, such as your server address, domain name, date and time of your visit, the pages visited and selected information for statistical purposes.
The AAAI receives information when you contact us in person or via the telephone, send us a facsimile or e-mail, or attend our functions or courses. We receive information on non-members from a wide range of personal contacts, referrals and from publicly available sources.
2. How and why AAAI maintains and uses personal information:
The AAAI requests personal information when members request products from us or apply to enrol for courses, conferences, or other AAAI sponsored events. If members send the AAAI an email, that address will be recorded automatically by the AAAI e-mail messaging system for the purpose of replying to that e-mail. However, for normal communication with members, the AAAI will use the e-mail address provided in the membership application/renewal, unless a different e-mail address has been entered when a member updates his/her own profile.
If a non-member advises the AAAI that that person does not wish to receive information from the AAAI about membership, services and products then the AAAI will promptly comply with that request.
3. Personal information the AAAI may disclose, and the parties to whom it might be disclosed:
The AAAI may disclose personal information about members or non-members to firms that perform services on behalf of the AAAI in connection with maintaining or servicing the membership, or processing requests for products or services, or in connection with market research purposes.
The AAAI may also disclose personal information if required, or authorised to do so by law.
