Privacy at The Faculty

Privacy Policy

The Faculty has a Privacy Policy to ensure that it handles private information about individuals responsibly. The Privacy Policy may be amended from time to time.

The Faculty collects, receives, maintains and handles information of a personal nature concerning its business partners, procurement training course attendees, event attendees, guest speakers, research participants, marketing associates and its chosen charitable organisations, in accordance with the requirements of the ten National Privacy Principles in the Commonwealth Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000.

Collection

The Faculty usually collects this information from the person directly. Typically this information includes a person's name, address and any other information which is needed to maintain records in a format that identifies the person. These records are held by The Faculty for the purposes of enabling The Faculty to provide services to its business partners and associates.

Data Quality

We take reasonable steps to ensure the personal information we collect, use or disclose is accurate, complete and up-to-date. Personal information is typically held in electronic data bases or hard copy document form, but information may also sometimes be contained in other record formats such as photographs or videotape.

Data Security

The Faculty takes reasonable steps to make sure that the personal information it holds is not lost, misused or altered inappropriately. This is ensured by using physical security measures for hard copy paper and maintaining computer and network security devices and systems for the electronic holding of information.

Use and Disclosure

The Faculty will not share or release information collected to third parties unless we receive prior written consent or we are required by law to release information to the recipient. The Faculty may, however, produce internal reports that analyse user activity in an anonymous aggregated form.

Access to Personal Information

If you wish to review or correct your personal, contact or demographic data or remove your name and related information from our records, please contact The Faculty. You may opt out of any disclosure we may make to third parties in the future by sending an email to The Faculty.

If you have any questions about this Privacy statement, the practices of our website or your dealings with our firm, you can contact us using the Contact Us facility on our website.

We acknowledge receipt of complaints within 48 hours providing we have current relevant contact details and we try to resolve every complaint as soon as practicable but within 14 days, providing the complaint and its resolution is relatively straightforward. If the complaint and its resolution are not straightforward we contact the person lodging the complaint and provide them with an estimate of how long we will need to resolve the complaint, which can be from 30 days up to a maximum of 90 days.
