Protecting your privacy is important to us.
The Skin Cancer College Australasia (SCCA) values your privacy and is committed to protecting your personal information. We collect, administer and hold a range of personal information for the purposes of:
- Registering and managing College membership.
- Registering and administering attendance at our education courses and events.
This is our policy.
SCCA is bound by the Privacy Act 1988, which sets out our obligations when it comes to handling your personal information. As an organisation, we adhere to the following principles:
SCCA will only collect information that is necessary for the primary function and performance of the College and will always notify you when we collect, administer and hold your information.
SCCA will take reasonable steps to ensure the information we collect is accurate, complete, up to date, and relevant to the functions we perform.
Access and correction
SCCA will ensure you have access to your information and can easily update it if it is inaccurate, incomplete, misleading or not up to date. If you have any queries, or would like to request a change email .
Data security and retention
SCCA will safeguard the information we collect and store against misuse, loss, unauthorised access and modification. We will never store credit card details and never disclose your contact details to a third party without your permission.
SCCA stores your information on secure servers (electronic records) or controlled facilities (hard copy records) and our employees and contractors are obliged to respect the confidentiality of any personal information held by us. Wherever practical we will ensure that the servers that hold your information are housed in Australia, however some data may be stored in other countries.
SCCA also relies on you to help keep your personal information secure. To do this keep your login and password information confidential and regularly change your password using a combination of letters (upper and lower case), numbers and special characters (!, @ etc). If you notice any unauthorized use of your account please notify SCCA immediately.
Use and disclosure
SCCA will only use or disclose your information for the primary purpose for which it was collected or a directly related secondary purpose. For other uses we will obtain your consent.
Where feasible, SCCA will give you the option of de-identifying yourself when completing evaluation forms or opinion surveys. This is not always an option, particularly when it comes to claiming continuing professional development points with professional bodies such as the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
Sharing your information
SCCA will only release your personal information with your permission. All our registration and membership forms will include the option for you to specify that your information is not provided to third party organisations such as sponsors. SCCA will release your information to a third party where it is specifically requested by you.
