If you are providing personally identifiable information and are not a resident of the United States, your country’s laws governing data collection and use may differ from those in the United States, in particular, the U.S. may not provide the same level of protections as those in your own country. By providing information to ISACA Chapter, you are transferring your personal data to the United States, and you consent to the transfer to, retention of and processing of your data in the United States.
Collection of Personally Identifiable Information
ISACA Chapter collects and maintains a variety of personally identifiable information, including [list information collected, such as: email addresses, phone numbers, credit card and other payment information, business and home addresses, as well as demographic information such as courses or areas of study in which you may be interested]. ISACA Austin Chapter collects information directly from you through, for example [list methods of collection, such as: online registration forms, as well as offline, through exam or event registration forms]. Information is collected and maintained from [list individuals from whom information is collected, such as: members, exam candidates, those who have been certified by ISACA, applicants, event attendees, speakers, participants in ISACA Austin Chapter programs, purchasers of ISACA Austin Chapter products and services, current and past web site users, survey respondents, and others]. To the extent that information requested is not required for your participation in a given ISACA Chapter program, you will be told which information is optional. Should you fail to provide optional information, certain ISACA Austin Chapter programs or features may not be available to you.
ISACA Chapter may also maintain information about you that you do not directly provide, whether it is information received from third parties, such as business partners who provide exam administration services, or information ISACA Chapter collects about your activities. For example, ISACA Chapter keeps track of [list as appropriate: which events you have attended, which exams you have taken, which boards and committees you have served on, and which offices you have held].
