The cornerstones of the Policy are that we will only collect personal information from you which is necessary for our legitimate purposes, that we will only use this information in ways which have been clearly communicated to you (or which should be obvious from the manner in which the information was requested) and that we will safeguard your personal information while it is in our possession and not retain it for longer than necessary. We ascribe to ten privacy principles to ensure that your personal information is protected:
The CFS(-Services) is responsible for personal information under its control. The Director of Organising is the designated Privacy Officer who is responsible for the CFS(-Services)’s compliance with the policy.
Upon or before collecting information, the CFS(-Services) will state the purpose of collection, unless the purpose is obvious, and will provide, on request, contact information for the Privacy Officer who can answer questions about the collection. Before using or disclosing personal information for a purpose not previously identified, the CFS(-Services) will identify the new purpose and obtain your consent unless the use or disclosure is authorized or required by law.
The CFS-MB will obtain your consent to collect, use or disclose personal information except where we are authorized or required by law to do so without consent. For example, we may collect, use or disclose personal information without your knowledge or consent where: the personal information is publicly available from a public source, such as a telephone directory; or the CFS(-Services) is collecting or paying a debt; Consent may be provided orally, in writing, electronically, by negative option or otherwise. By providing personal information to us, you agree that we may collect, use and disclose such personal information as set out in the Policy and as otherwise permitted or required by law. You may withdraw consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions, and provided that you give us reasonable notice or withdrawal of your consent. On receipt of notice of withdrawal of consent, we will inform you of the likely consequences of your withdrawal of consent, which may include our inability to provide services for which that information is necessary. When providing the CFS(-Services) with consent, or when revoking your consent, please do so by way of communication with the Privacy Officer.
