Where your information is stored
All of our data, including personal and non-personal information is stored on our IPWEA servers. Our primary database is hosted on a server in Melbourne, Australia, and this is where the majority of your personal information will be stored. As we utilise cloud technology and our website providers are located in the United States, your personal information may also be stored on a server in the United States.
By providing your personal information to IPWEA, you consent to IPWEA storing your personal information on our servers in Australia and the United States.
With Whom Do We Share the Personal Information We Collect
Our Service Providers.
We may share your personal information with companies (including our affiliates such as IPWEA Limited and our related Divisions) that perform services on our behalf, for example, companies that help process credit card payments, deliver our workshops, provide services on behalf of IPWEA and its Divisions. Our service providers are required by contract to protect the confidentiality of the personal information we share with them and to use it only to provide specific services on our behalf.
Government and Legal Disclosures
We may disclose the personal information we collect through this Site, when we, in good faith, believe disclosure is appropriate to comply with the law (or a court order or subpoena); to prevent or investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft; to enforce our Terms and Conditions or other agreements that govern your use of this Site; or to protect the rights, property or safety of our company, our users, or others.
Service providers and other entities with whom we may disclose your personal information may be located outside of Australia.
Other entities located outside Australia may include foreign IPWEA Divisions. While your personal information will be disclosed through the central IPWEA Database, internal policies and procedures restrict foreign divisions from using, disclosing, extracting or editing your personal information. Currently we have a foreign division in New Zealand.
Service providers located outside Australia are bound by confidentiality agreements and are not permitted to use, disclose, extract or edit your personal information unless doing so in accordance with IPWEA related activities. We currently have service providers in Canada and the United States. These service providers are contracted to provide consultancy services to IPWEA.
Remember The Risks Whenever You Use The Internet
While we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you transmit to us and you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords or other account information. In addition, other Internet sites or services that may be accessible through our site have separate data and privacy practices independent of us, and therefore we disclaim any responsibility or liability for their policies or actions. Please contact those vendors and others directly if you have any questions about their privacy policies.
