Use and disclosure of information
YRD only discloses personal information for the primary purpose for which it was collected, or for a secondary purpose as required or permitted by law.
For example, YRD may disclose personal information to third parties it engages to assist in performing its functions, most often related to the Conference they are attending. Where disclosure takes place, YRD will include protective provisions regarding the handling of personal information in contracts with third parties.
When conducting a member survey on behalf of a third party, YRD does not disclose personal information to that third party. YRD does not provide or sell any database information to external organisations for commercial purposes.
YRD Event Management maintains strict standards and security procedures to prevent unauthorised access to personal information and to ensure the correct and proper use of such information.
IT protection systems and internal procedures are also utilised to protect the personal information held by YRD. YRD may store electronic information on remote servers or in the cloud directly or through contracted agencies (such as Currinda P/L) – all information is securely stored in Australia with backups securely stored in the United States of America and encrypted before transfer back to Australia).
YRD does not store member credit or debit card information. YRD uses a third party provider, which provides a secure online payment gateway solution for credit card and direct debit processing of payments.
Personal data is maintained under strict security and is only to be accessed internally by YRD staff who require access as part of their role or to complete a task.
Records containing personal information will be held by YRD until there is no longer a need or obligation to retain such records, after which time they will be deleted, destroyed or de-identified.
