Security of personal information and retaining your personal information
AusIMM protects personal information from misuse and loss. The steps we take to ensure protections include, but are not limited to, the use of firewalls, encryption, anti-virus software, anonymous password protection, cloud distribution networks (CDNs), internal compliance and training and managed hosting services. In addition, access is restricted to authorised personnel and training is provided to staff on adherence to the Privacy Act.
Hardcopy documents, if and when required, are physically secured through the use of restricted access facilities.
AusIMM will keep personal information for as long as it is needed to provide members and non-members with products and services. We will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify personal information no longer needed. AusIMM will retain information relating to past members for heritage purposes unless requested to do otherwise.
We will regularly review our files to check that information is accurate, up-to-date and still required.
We normally destroy or erase data 7 years after the end of our agreement with you, or as required by applicable laws. However, we may retain your information after you cease to be a member for longer than this, if permitted for a legal, regulatory, fraud prevention or other legitimate business purpose.
