We respect your privacy. Any and all information collected at this site will be kept strictly confidential. Any information you give to the IICA will be held with the utmost care, and will not be used in ways that you have not consented to.

Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy explains our policies and practices regarding the collection, use, storage, and disclosure of your personal information by the IICA. We want you to feel secure when visiting our Website and are committed to maintaining your privacy when doing so. The IICA site may contain links to other Websites. IICA is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Websites. The information below provides an overview of how we protect your privacy.

Refunds and Returns Policy

The IICA does not supply any physical products online. All payments accepted are for membership or event registration only. If a refund is required for an online credit card payment please contact the IICA via admin@iica.org.au

What personal information do we gather?

In general, you may visit the IICA Website without providing us with any personal information about yourself. We may need your personal information such as your name, and your postal and email address in order to enable you to register for an event or if you join as a Member. In other instances, we may ask you to provide us with information such as your product interests so that we can send you only the information that is useful to you, including articles, newsletters, product and service alerts, new product and service announcements and event invitations.

How do we collect your personal information?

We collect information directly through response forms that you choose to complete. We may also collect information indirectly through the use of cookies. The cookies we use identify you only as a number. “Persistent” cookies are stored on your computer and used in subsequent visits to our sites. “Session” cookies only exist for a specific visit. You can disable your computer from accepting one or both cookie types by changing the settings in the preferences or options menu in your browser. If you disable both types, most of the website will continue to function, but you will not be able to log in to certain portions of our site. If you disable “persistent” cookies, but not “session” cookies, these pages should still function.

How do we use your personal information?

When you supply the IICA with your personal information, we may use the information to learn more about you and the instrumentation, control and automation industry and to inform you about new products, services and offers that may be of interest to you

Do we share your information with outside parties?

Any and all information collected at this site will be kept strictly confidential. Any information you give to the IICA will be held with the utmost care, and will not be used in ways that you have not consented to.

What about sensitive data?

We do not typically collect sensitive personal data through this Website. If we do seek to collect such data, we will inform you as to our intended use of such sensitive data and ask you to consent to our storing and the proposed uses of such data.

What about security?

The security of your personal information is important to the IICA and we take appropriate steps to maintain security of your personal information. The open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. While this is out of our control, we aim to apply appropriate levels of security at all times. We use industry standard technologies and maintain current security standards to ensure that your personal information is protected against unauthorized access, disclosure, inappropriate alteration, or misuse.

We manage our server environment appropriately and our firewall infrastructure is strictly adhered to. We routinely employ current technologies to ensure that the confidentiality and privacy of your information is not compromised.

To safeguard against unauthorised access to your accounts, you are required to “sign on” using a user ID and a password to certain secured areas of the www.iica.org.au website. Both user ID and password are encrypted when sent over the Internet. If you are unable to provide the correct password, you will not be able to access these sections. Despite all of our efforts, the Internet is inherently unsecure and we cannot guarantee that information provided online will be secure at all times. Suffice it to say that the security of your personal information is important to us and we will use all reasonable means to keep it as safe as possible.

Do we give you access to your information?

You are entitled to know whether we hold information about you and, if we do, to have access to that information and require it to be corrected if it is inaccurate. You can do this by contacting us via admin@iica.org.au

Updating this Privacy Policy

Any changes to our Privacy Policy and information handling practices will be acknowledged in this Privacy Policy in a timely manner. We may add, modify or remove portions of this Privacy Policy when we believe it is appropriate to do so.
