IAF General Privacy Principles
Information IAF collects
If the user is an IAF member, certain information will have been provided to IAF for posting on the IAF website (e.g. a contact name for the organization, and physical address of the organization). IAF will only use the information for legitimate business purposes. Where the user provides information about others (for example, work colleagues or contractors) the user must ensure that consent is obtained or he/she is otherwise entitled to provide this information to IAF.
IAF uses Mailchimp, a third-party email marketing solution, to manage IAF Outlook. If the user has subscribed, IAF will ask for consent. The IAF database is held by Mailchimp and subject to its privacy policies. IAF will request the user’s name and email address. The user may log-in, unsubscribe or amend his/her details at any time.
If the user is an IAF business contact, applicant for a job, or contractor and has provided IAF with personal details or a CV, IAF will store these details in the IAF system, which will be available only to IAF or its contractors for legitimate business purposes.
The User’s data rights are listed below:
