Privacy Policy

Last updated: January 28, 2014


This is the privacy policy that applies to the australiasocietytokyo.com website. The Australia Society Tokyo has a firm commitment to safeguarding the privacy of our members' personal information. Personal information is information about an identifiable individual. Publicly available information, such as a public directory listing of your name, address, telephone number, or electronic address, is not considered to be personal information.

COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

When you register for an account we ask for information such as your name, company name, and email address. We also collect the e-mail addresses and other personal information provided during account sign-ups, from email inquiries, forum registrations and forum postings, and from blog comments. Information we collect is stored on computer servers that we use to operate the Site. These servers may be located outside of Japan, or the information may pass through jurisdictions outside of Japan in the course of the operation or maintenance of the Site.

The personal information we collect is used to provide our services, for billing, for identification and authentication, for the general operation and improvement of our service, and to respond to inquiries, and is not used, shared with or sold to other organizations, except: to our service providers, as required to operate the Site and provide the products or services you've requested; to the applicable customer of the account in respect of which contact information is submitted to us; for collection purposes; to law enforcement agencies, in emergencies, for internal security matters, or where required by court order or search warrant; or when we have your permission. We do not contact our customers' contacts except as related to operating the Site (for example: event notifications and reminders, membership renewals, security and other notifications).

We may also record your computer's IP address with your order to help us identify fraudulent credit card use. We may share this information with the financial institution that issued the credit card with which an order was placed or with law enforcement authorities if we determine, or are notified, that the use of the credit card was fraudulent.

Your personal information is not used or disclosed by us for any other purpose.

If you would like to information removed from our databases then please let us know.
