Privacy Policy

ACPSEM is committed to safeguarding your privacy online.

ACPSEM has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for ACPSEM

ACPSEM does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when such individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. For example, such personally identifiable information may be gathered from the registration process for subscription or services and in connection with content submissions, community postings (e.g., forums), suggestions and transactional areas.

Personally identifiable information on individual users will not be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the user at the time of collection. At such points of collection, the user will have the opportunity to indicate whether he or she would like to "opt out" of receiving promotional and/or marketing information about other products, services and offerings and/or any third parties.

Further, notwithstanding any opt out of promotional information by the user, we reserve the right to contact a subscriber regarding account status, changes to the subscriber agreement and other matters relevant to the underlying service and/or the information collected.

We do reserve the right to perform statistical analyses of user behaviour and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to or clicked on their advertising banners.

Upon request, we will allow any user to "opt out" of further promotional contacts at any time.

From time to time, ACPSEM is requested to provide information relating to the professions for planning and research purposes. Such requests usually come from Government departments and agencies, university researchers or other similar professional bodies. ACPSEM will use the details stored on this database to provide the requested information where a) the request comes from a credible source with appropriate reasons for the request b) there is a benefit to ACPSEM members to accede to the request c) the applicants have demonstrated they have obtained all relevant authorisations and permissions for requesting the information, including ethics approval where required d) the information will not lead to the individual identification of a member and cannot be linked to any specific member or hospital. In all other cases, individual members will be contacted and specific permission will be obtained before any information is provided.

Additionally upon request, we will use reasonable efforts to allow users to update/correct personal information previously submitted which the user states is erroneous to the extent such activities will not compromise privacy or security interests. Also, upon a user's request, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and his or her personal information from its database; however, it may be impossible to delete a user's entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletions.

Access to the database containing personal information is restricted to ACPSEM staff and members with direct responsibility for customer service or management of the website. Authorised staff and members are not allowed to pass on information about members to non-authorised staff without the express permission of the General Manager or ACPSEM Council.

ACPSEM reserves the right to change this policy at any time by notifying users of the existence of a new privacy statement. This statement and the policies outlined herein are not intended to and do not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.
